Modern Framed Built-in Ethanol Fireplaces
The framed built-in is the easiest to install. Here the entire burner is ready to be inserted into the wall. For you, this means that you only have to make a hole in the facade. Of course, the dimensions of your fireplace should be measured to make sure the hole is the right size for the ethanol fireplace.We have a large selection of fireplaces for incorporation in a wall in many different modern designs. For example, there are ethanol fireplaces with or without a rear metal plate called a 1-sided and 2-sided fireplace. A 2-sided ethanol fire can also be called a see-through or tunnel fireplace. Bio-fireplaces without a backplate with a frame are often used as room dividers. If you have a room-dividing wall, and find that it takes too much space, then an ethanol fireplace insert without a back plate is the perfect solution as it opens up the room. In the 2-sided bio fireplaces you can see the burning flame from two rooms in your home, which makes for a contemporary look.
Then there are of course bio-fires inserts with a closed backside, the 1-sided ethanol fireplace. These are rarely used as room dividers but can, in theory, be used for that too. The reason more people prefer open two-sided bioethanol fires as a room divider, is because it opens up the room.
A third option is a 3-sided fireplace with a frame. Here the fireplace is built into the end of a wall, between two rooms. Here the fram covers the top, buttom and back wall, and is open to the three sides facing the room. This a perticularly popular choice in new constructions. It is a cool feature that make for a very fashionable look.
Also the a corner fireplace with a frame, can be built into a wall. It is the same principle as with the others, here it is just built into the corner of a wall. This is also quite the popular choice for the modern home.
What Materials can Be Combined with your Bio Fireplace?
A bio-fireplace is often made in stainless steel or aluminum. Both are relatively lightweight and at the same time incredibly robust. By 2020, the colors black, silver and grey are very trendy.
Glass is also a great material, that protects your bio fire from dirt and at the same time, you have a perfect view of the flames. A glass helps to increase the security of the fireplace, especially for families with children and pets. However, it is not possible to completely close a bio-fireplace off with glass, since the ethanol flame needs oxygen to keep burning. The fuel needs a constant source of air. A way to integrate glass in your bio fireplace is to cover the fireplace halfway, so only the top is open.
Should I Choose a Bioethanol Fireplace, a Gas Fireplace or an Electric Fireplace?
A gas fireplace takes quite a lot more work, than the other optiopns. It needs to be installed by an autorised expert, and it also requires a vent and a connection to a gas supply. However, the heat output of a gas fireplace much greater than with a bio or electric fire. On the other hand an ethanol fireplaces offer more freedom. The only thing you need for an ethanol fireplace is the fuel – bioethanol.
The same goes for an electric LED fireplace. It offers quite a lot of freedom, and only needs a power supply to work. However, an electric fireplace does not have a real flame since the flames is created with LED lights. So the most realistic of these two, would be an ethanol fireplace.
Here are some benefits for an ethanol fireplace:
- Ethanol is an affordable fuel
- Quick and easy installation
- Installation can be done yourself
- Requires no chimney or ventilation
- No smoke, soot or ash
- Provides excellent extra heat
- Some of the bio fireplaces can be used outdoor
- Has a real flame
Bio Ethanol Fireplace for Outdoor Use
Who says we have to limit ourselves to indoor areas? Not us! For this reason, the garden, patio or generally any outdoor area is a great place to let your creativity run.
A very popular DIY project is to build a brick or concrete facade and install a built-in bioethanol fireplace. Here, too, you can choose an bio ethanol fire insert with a closed or non-closed back wall, or with the number of open sides you want. You only need to watch out for exposure to wind and bad weather, as this should preferably be avoided. If the fire is in the garden, it is important to have a cover with which the fireplace can be covered. Of course, the cover must be wind and water-resistant, otherwise, the cover will not serve its actual purpose.
An even better way to protect it from the bad weather is to place it under a roof. This way, it is protected year-round and you do not always need to cover it after use.
The protection of your outdoor fireplace is important, as it helps to extend the life of your fireplace.

Frameless Built-in Bioethanol Fireplaces
There are the bio fireplaces for installation with a frame. But there are also built-in fireplaces without a frame. If you want a frameless fireplace, you only need to get the bio ethanol burner. The fire pit is like any other combustion chamber that usually consists of aluminum or stainless steel.
There are several ways to create a fire place without a frame. One popular way is to integrate the bio-fireplace into the house, by installing the burner in an existing wall. For this, the dimensions of the burner are taken and the hole is made accordingly. This requires about the same effort as the previous variant.
You can design everything around the fire pit - the thickness and depth of where you want to mount it. Everything is up to you, the only limit is your imagination. Of course, you should be aware of a few safety aspects, with possible minimum dimensions and distances, which are found in the manual of the respective bio ethanol burner.
The very latest when it comes to bio ethanol fireplaces is the so-called automatic burners, which can easily be installed in one of our built-in fireplaces. Find out what these burners are and what the best use for them is here. An electric combustion chamber is a variant, where the only thing that is still manual is the filling of ethanol in the tank. The capacity of the tank depends on the model, we have burners from 1,7L to 18,5L capacity.
There are accessories that will help make the filling easier. An ethanol pump which ensures that the ethanol is poured directly and automatically from the bottle and directly into the fire tank. You can see the two pumps that we offer here; Pump for Bioethanol made of plastic and Pump for bioethanol (manual).
Of course, an automatic burner offers the same benefits as a manual burner. The chamber is still free of smoke, soot and ash and you do not need a vent to operate it.
But there are some benefits that only the automatic burners offer. The fireplace is automatically ignited with the press of a button. You either have a remote control or a button on the fireplace, which can be pressed to turn the fireplace off and on.
Since the product is still relatively new, the range of designs is not as wide as with the manual burners. The most popular design here is black and stainless steel. And of course, there is free shipping on these fires.
Safety Comes First
In addition to the already great technology of being able to automatically turn on and off, there is also the fact that the automatic fire pit has many high-tech sensors that offer an additional level of protection.
One of these sensors, for example, is a so-called tilt sensor. This sensor, therefore, offers leak protection. In the event that the chamber is tilted in a certain direction to allow the fuel to escape, it closes the opening quickly.
The automatic makes for a more easy and safe option of bioethanol burner, but the price point is also quite different from a manual bio burner. Therefore, the choice of a manual or automatic burner is entirely dependent on you and your needs and wants.
