Bioethanol Fire Safety and How to Avoid Dangerous Situations

Putting fire, flammable liquids, and people together can potentially lead to dangerous situations - and that is something we are always working to improve and minimise, from concept to finished production.

At, all bio ethanol fires and bioethanol burners have been carefully selected by our buyers and tested by independent practitioners, to ensure you get a product that meets all applicable safety standards. It is all part of our philosophy to offer our customers the best.

The combination of rigorous testing, independent safety approvals, and leading safety features means you can use our bio ethanol fires without worrying.

Whether you buy one of our in-house manufactured manual bio fires, electric burn chambers or a bioethanol fire from one of our popular brands, you are ensured a high quality product that meets all current safety regulations.

Our bioethanol burners, all designed and crafted in stainless steel, are easy to maintain and keep clean. Their special ceramic cotton fibre lining ensures a stable flame and because they are made of stainless steel, they can easily be cleaned with warm water and a cloth.

Safety for us is not just about how the fuel is stored in the burn chamber; it is also about ensuring that your bioethanol burner remains in tip-top condition for many years, and that it burns cleanly and efficiently. We, therefore, recommend that you only use high quality bioethanol fuel with an alcohol content of between 95 - 97.5%.

At the same time, we recommend that you use equipment such as a funnel and a long safety lighter for your bio fireplace, which makes filling and igniting easier and safer. You can, therefore, buy a starter kit with everything you need right here:
