The Short Penguin Eco is an Ecodesign stove. It uses a combination of three new clean burn features to achieve lower emissions and over 80% efficiency. Secondary heat retaining glazing has been introduced. The combustion air jets have been redesigned and air flow diversion has been introduced.
The combination of these new features mean that the temperatures in the firebox are higher resulting in a more efficient burn of the fuel. In addition the combustion gases remain in these higher temperatures for longer which causes more complete burn of the gases resulting in less harmful emissions and less particulates.
Air wash system. Pre-heated air is introduced via channels and jets at the back of the firebox and above the door. The jets over the door are directed at the glass, creating a cushion of air, this is called an air wash. The combination of the clean burn features and the air wash result in a clear, uninterrupted view of the fire.
Our stainless steel handles have been re-designed to improve the feel of positive closure and to ensure that the handles remain vertical…we want our penguins to always look and feel good.
If you regularly use the top surface of the stove, there is an optional stainless steel top plate available, which sits on top of the stove. We offer two types of these. The top flue version has a “U” shaped cut out to sit around the flue. The rear flue version has no cut out. (If you want the rear flue version let us know at point of order, so we can remove the stove collar for you. Ask your stockist for a “rear flue ready stove”).
Ecodesign stoves. In order to be an Ecodesign stove, a stove must be independently verified to meet stringent emission requirements. Particulates or PMs are the most commonly recognised of these measures. The maximum limit for these is 40 mg/m3. This stove achieves 36 mg/m3 burning wood and 15 mg/m3 burning smokeless fuel. All other measures are all listed in our technical details table below. Click here for further Ecodesign info.
