Review of Franco belge Savoy Elegance - MKII

design of savoy mark 2 elegace

Ernest FORSTER 3 years ago

my personal opinion is that this log burner has a design defect.the back wall firebrick is attatched by 4 bolts to the cast iron The shaped flue baffle which is so thin it buckles very badly and the top of the baffle is a lot thicker and consequently does not distort as badly, However when you need to fit a new firebrick with it not having a perfectly flat surface it eventually breaks
