The space in which you live is an expression of your individual style. Riva convectors, cassettes and stoves have been designed to create a striking centrepiece at the very heart of your home. Be inspired by their designs, impressed by there high levels of heating efficiency and admire their ease of control. Then simply relax in front of a real fire.
Everyone loves the warmth and atmosphere of an open fire with dancing flames and crackling logs or glowing coals. Unfortunately, open fires are not always very efficient at heating your room. An exception to this, the latest Riva Open Convectors from Stovax provide you with the best of both worlds – a real open fire yet with a heating efficiency double that of a normal grate or hearth. This is because the Riva Open Convector Fires have been designed to produce warm convected air as well as radiant heat.
Riva cassettes and stoves direct three types of air into the glass fronted firebox, where they combine to provide superb flame control and exceptional views of the fire. Riva cassettes and stoves incorporate the very latest cleanburn technology with a unique ‘Opti-Burn’ setting. This means that they burn logs or smokeless fuels with outstanding efficiency, resulting in more heat delivery into the room and less going up the chimney. Combustion is achieved by directing three separate airflows into the firebox. Primary air burns the fuel under the fuel bed; the ‘airwash’ flow helps keep the window clean and the pre-heated, secondary air promotes ‘cleanburning’ by the combustion of excess hydrocarbons in the smoke.
In addition to the radiant heat, a fourth airflow, between the inner and outer skins of the Riva, provides convected heat. This is emitted into the room naturally or, in the case of the Riva 55, Riva 66, Riva 76, via an optional fan kit.
