Kit fireplace: not for the inexperienced

Kit system tiled stoves and kit system fireplaces are something like the prefabricated house among fireplaces. They can be realised quickly and are a cheaper alternative to individually built systems. Which advantages and disadvantages they have and why the specialist is still in demand.

What are kit system tiled stoves and kit system fireplaces? 

Kit system tiled stoves and kit system fireplaces are characterised by the fact that they combine a high-quality brand heating insert with a prefabricated cover. All moulded parts of this cladding kit are made to size in advance. This means that kit system devices can be quickly assembled in your own home and the costs are significantly lower than for a hand-built fireplace. In terms of price, they vary between a wood stove and a system from the furnace builder.

Kit system devices are offered by various manufacturers. At BRUNNER all moulded parts are made of "thermal concrete", which is either left as an architecture element in exposed concrete or whose surface can be refined.

Painted, plastered or provided with ceramic elements, the surface can be changed according to the customer's taste.

Other than that, kit system tiled stoves and fireplaces leave little room for individual design wishes. The shape and size of the system are fixed by the components and cannot be varied. Selected BRUNNER systems are also offered as water-bearing versions.

Why the craftsman is still in demand

If you decide in favour of a kit system device you can sit in front of the crackling fire and enjoy the pleasant warmth after 1-2 days with the appropriate advance planning; the assembly does not take longer. However, you should not think of the kit system device a furniture kit. A lot of high-quality technology is installed inside the device, which is why expert skills are required for assembly. Only those with a great deal of technical skill and knowledge should dare to assemble the heater.

BRUNNER kit system devices are sold exclusively through specialised dealers, so it is up to the stove fitter to decide how much assistance he needs and which work steps a layman can possibly carry out himself. One should always be aware of this: The person who installed the system must also take responsibility.

A heating system can only be as good as the interaction of heat generators and consumers is regulated. This is guaranteed by professional installation and reliable maintenance. Our partners are perfectly trained in this regard and regularly expand their special expertise at our training courses and seminars.

Specialist tip

A kit system device is a good way of incorporating your own efforts into the construction. However, do not do without a professional who is familiar with the installation of the complex technology and knows about fire protection specifications.
