Decorating Your Bio Fireplace
Do you want a more realistic look for your bio fireplace? Here at Bioethanol-fireplace.co.uk, we have a large range of bio ethanol fireplace accessories, including decorations. Fireplaces can be decorated with ceramic wood or pebbles, or perhaps glow flame, which makes the fire glow and creates a cosy atmosphere.
We have many different types of ceramic decorations. All of them have different shapes, sizes and types, contributing to a more realistic and natural look.
The benefit of the ceramic wood and pebbles is that they do not burn, and can, therefore, be used countless of times.
You can find all of our decorations here:
Where to Place the Decoration in the Bio Fireplace?
Ceramic wood and pebbles should only be placed around the flame and burner, not inside the flames, to avoid them emitting unpleasant smells. The decorations will not be damaged by touching the fire, they will just emit a bad smell. The operation of the burner is not affected by the decoration, and therefore, the decorations do not need to be moved to switch the fire on and off.
If you want to add glow flames to give your decoration a glowing look, the "threads" must be pulled apart to form a continuous thread that can be placed directly into the flame. If the glowing flame is not in contact with the fire, it will have no effect. However, glow flame is purely a decoration; it will not burn, but simply creates a realistic glowing appearance.
Do not touch the decoration for up to 30 minutes after usage, as they can still be quite warm. Moreover, it is important not to pour bio ethanol fuel directly onto the wood; otherwise, an unmanageable and potentially dangerous flame can follow.
Which Fireplaces Can the Decoration Be Used in?
Not all our bio ethanol fires are suitable for decoration. We do not recommend using the decorations in our small table bio fireplaces, as they can be difficult to fit. The same applies to some of the wall mounted fireplaces.
The rule of thumb is that the decorations need to fit around the flames without touching them; therefore, the surface around the burner opening has to be quite big, depending on the size of the decorations. The ceramic pebbles might fit in some of the smaller fireplaces, where the ceramic wood might not fit so well.
Cleaning the Bio Fireplace Decorations
It is possible to clean the ceramic decorations. This should be done carefully by using a dry cloth. Make sure to only clean the ceramic decorations when they are completely cold.
