Have the best of both worlds

We have seen a steady increase in room dividing and double side fires in the recent times, this is a direct result of how we live in our homes today, larger open plan kitchen dining/rooms with a sitting rooms adjoined usually with large glass walls to gardens or views to Donegal’s beautiful scenery. But as nice as all this is we still want to wind down and relax in front of the fire after a busy day, this is were the the dilemma begins, maintaining open plan living, glass walls and still have a fire in visible from both rooms.

Not to worry there is a solution, Tunnel or double sided fires give you the best of both worlds, one fire two rooms, chimney breasts that only need to be slightly wide than the fire itself and minimal depth thus reducing impact on the room. This can be achieved with traditional chimneys build methods, or Stainless Steel Flue systems and fabricated chimney breasts (Preferred option) for Gas a fires balance flues may be viable terminating through the wall (No Chimney required) and then we have Electric which require a power source and water supply (Optional) that’s it.

Wood Burning Tunnel/Cassette Stoves

We have a large range of Tunnel Cassette fire on offer, the key thing to look out for and the Heat output required and the possible need for External air supply, External air supply would be a must in most new build due to HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation) and Air tightness, for existing properties this is difficult to achieve in such cases a vent in the wall is required. Sizes and styles vary and we are sure to have a fire than will meet your needs. To view some of our range click here 


Freestanding Double Sided

Freestanding double sided stoves have been around for year but the lack in knowledge of them by client or Architects alike  meant they were seldom used, with popularity in Home build TV programs and magazines not forgetting sites like Pinterest the have become a common site in homes across the country. Freestanding stoves come in a variety of sizes all the way from the Small Parkray to the Yeoman County Double Double. To view some of our range click here

Tunnel/Cassette Gas Fires

Ever more increasing in popularity to the point were they are close on over taking their wood burn counter parts, Gas offers a real life fire with none of the mess, a fire at the touch of a button. Again the range id vast  but we would advise anyone interest in this option to contact us as soon as possible on the design stage as they typically do not fit into standard masonry chimneys.
