The ‘Flamme Verte’ label guarantees the high energy and environmental efficiency of closed wood-burning fireplaces.
In 2010, the French Union for Renewable Energy classified products with the ‘Flamme Verte’ label in three categories, ranging from three to five stars according to their environmental friendliness. The five-star category additionally includes environmental performance that takes into account low particulate emissions in smoke.
In 2012, ‘Flamme Verte’ fireplaces with four or five stars are eligible for a tax credit in France.. Since its creation, Focus has worked to continually improve the technical performance and the energy efficiency of its fireplaces. The proof of our efforts is that most of our models have been awared four or five ‘Flamme Verte’ stars.
The materials we use are entirely recyclable.
All our wood-burning models, open and closed, have undergone extensive testing in European testing laboratories. Certain models have a thermal efficiency greater or equal to 70% and a CO output inferior to 0.3%. To find out a model’s nominal heat output, efficiency and CO output, see the performance data sheet. The data will be updated as our fireplaces continue to develop.
Our open and closed gas fireplaces (CE certified) display their nominal heat input. In parallel with improvements in efficiency, researchers are now working on improving the quality of smoke waste to reduce particulate and carbon monoxide emissions.
