BK5 Ethanol Burner
A sophisticated stainless steel burner that’s at the heart of a diverse range of EcoSmart Firebox Inserts and Freestanding Fireplaces. And the BK5’s compact, lightweight design enables it to equally be integrated into individual fire designs for indoor and outdoor spaces, both residential and commercial.
BK5’s versatility is underscored by its popularity among designers, builders, developers and specifiers – not to mention EcoSmart Fire’s design team.
The BK Burner Series design is the most independently tested of the range, with a range of special safety features.
Perfectly aligned slider mechanism, filling point and fuelling system that allows an unobstructed view of the burner tank ensuring the burner isn’t over-filled.
Deep-draw fabrication process eliminates the potential for dangerous leaks. Standard provision of a twin skin to hold the burner adds further peace of mind.
Easy flame control that enables you to regulate the amount of heat being generated and, therefore, the amount of fuel consumed. Provides a highly economical, efficient burner.
The BK5 holds 5 Litres of environmentally-friendly e-NRG bioethanol fuel, providing a flame that burns for up to 11 hours.
No Flue, No Chimney
The BK5 is fuelled by bioethanol, so you don’t need to flue out any harmful emissions or install costly ventilation systems.
