Franco Belge Belfort stove

The Franco Belge Belfort stove is a compact model and will therefore be able to fit into smaller fire place settings.

It has a 5kw output & you do not need to put an air vent into the room as less than 5kw output.

You can get the Belfort stove in enamel finish as well.

There is 1 plain door with a glass panel on the stove and the flue pipe can come out of the top or back of the stove.

  • Had it for 10 years, burnt through two flue liners

    last month

    The stove was already installed when we bought the house, about two years before we moved in. The stove is in the back snug and the room can get quite cold so we keep the stove going 24/7 for... []

    Stove expert replied: A liner is recommended for a property of this age. 316 grade liners come with a 10yr warranty and are best suited to woodburning stoves and the 904 grade liners has a 20 year warranty and is best suited for the multifuel burning stoves. I would go back to see what you had fitted as you may be able to claim under warranty depending on what was supplied.

    After a lot of consideration we decided on this stove. We removed a cast iron Victorian fireplace and installed this in the cavity. It's a nice fit and we did not have to alter the existing... []

    Stove expert replied: Maintenance is important to ensure that a stove will function as expected, a little time and effort will certainly bring rewards over a stoves lifetime. Gaskets, rope seals, baffle plates, grates etc should be regularly inspected and replaced when needed.

  • Franco Belge Belfort - part of the family for many years

    D Daly 4 years ago

    This little unit sits in the study, the coldest room in a 350 year old house - the room has three external walls and is single storey with minimal insulation. It just manages to keep the room... []

    Stove expert replied: Recommend emptying the ashpan at least daily to insure longevity of the grate, if hot ash left in the ashpan it can shorten the life as it is being cooked from both sides! In the summer check the riddle as it may just need cleaning with emery paper to remove surface debris that has built up over time. Annual maintenance always worth doing so that no nasty surprises occur when the next heating season begins.

    We installed our wood burner 2 years ago and I am still delighted. We live in NE Scotland have had two very hard winters and the stove has kept the house warm without us using the gas central... []

    Stove expert replied: great that the stove is working well for you. To seal the flue another option is either fire rope wrapped around and pushed into the gap with fire cement on top, or high temperature silicone. Both are a bit more flexible.

    Stove expert replied: Multifuel stoves can add versatility to supplying heat to a home but it is not everyone's cup of tea. It certainly reduces the other heat requirements in the home though. Routine maintenance will always be required so nothing unusual there.

    This has been ok for a smallish room, but in a large room in winter you would want a bigger fire.
