Our Free Standing Stoves. Free standing stoves make a statement with real impact when compared to inset stoves, as they can stand proud in almost any room, without requiring a pre-existing chimney breast. Inset stoves require fitting within a fireplace surround, but free standing options are ideal for modern properties which lack these traditional features. Your installer can simply vent your stove through a twin wall steel flue, without the need for any chimney space. Another advantage of free standing stoves is that the heat is radiated from all sides and will assist in pushing warmth out into all corners of the room. For even more convenience, additional accessories such as log stores or cook tops can often be attached to free standing stoves.
