SYSTEMS AND FUNCTIONS OF DAN SKAN-STOVES
The fire chamber is lined with free-standing highly heat-reflective Skamol plates (vermiculite). These snuggly fitting firebricks do not use fire cement so that they can easily be replaced without being a stove expert. The curved or angular fire chamber provides the best heat reflection to the fuel as it burns which adds to the stove‘s overall efficiency.
CERAMIC GLASS DOORS
All DAN SKAN stove doors are made from the extra strong materials to deliver the highest stability and torsion resistance possible. The big picture windows, and now our new models with panoramic side windows, featuring premium quality heat-resistant ceramic glass, give you a desirable uninterrupted view of the fire similar to an open fireplace.
AIR WASH SYSTEM
All DAN SKAN stoves feature a superior air wash system that sweeps the entire glass surface. Air is not only flushed from the top but also from the base and both sides of the glass to keep the big window area astonishingly clear. A good up-draught is essential to ensure the best possible air wash function.
The only control you need on a DAN SKAN stove and which regulates the primary and secondary combustion air. On CLASSIC LINE stoves this is rectangular and and the MODERN LINE stoves it is round, with both featuring the DAN SKAN logo.
TWO-LAYERED RIDDLE GRATE
Our innovative externally operated two-layered opening and closing riddle grate (product and name invention from DAN SKAN) is easy to adjust for burning wood (closed position) and coal (open position).
The position of the back shelf in the CLASSIC stove range is designed to benefit from the heat from the flue gases to provide a good baking or cooking facility. Please note: Always remove the heat-absorbing fitted stone or ceramic shelves before starting to cook.
SMOKE BAFFLE PATE
The easily removable baffle plate in all DAN SKAN stoves is made of 25 mm thick Skamol, a highly heat-reflective and lightweight ceramic material.
The DAN SKAN Automatic bimetal control which regulates the post combustion air supply automatically gives you the highest operational safety and at the same time, the highest efficiency and lowest pollution.
BAKING OR WARMING COMPARTMENT
Most CLASSIC stoves feature a baking or warming compartment with some models offering an optional loosely fitted baking ‘tray’.
TOP OR REAR FITTED FLUE OPTION
Most DAN SKAN stoves feature a variable flue connection to give you the option of top or rear fitting flue. If you must specify a rear fitting flue then please check your stove options carefully – HT for top and HB for rear.
Although a standard feature in Europe, in the UK and Ireland a draught stabiliser or ‘damper’ should only be retro-fitted by a specialist if there is proven excessive up-draught which is limiting control of the stove.
EXTERNAL AIR CONNECTION
Also known as the direct air connection. A standard feature on all DAN SKAN stoves with pre-cut easy-release back plate or base aperture for rear or discreet base entry – see page 81 for precise location.
ASH PAN LID
Stored under the ash pan, every DAN SKAN stove has an ash pan lid which can be used to prevent ash blowing away when emptying the pan.
