Mounted Bioethanol Fireplaces
The bioethanol fireplace is available in many different versions and in many different designs. In the following section, we would like to introduce you to our wide selection of ethanol fireplaces.
A rather unusual, but very elegant variant of the ethanol fireplaces is the wall mounted fireplaces. These are, as the name suggests, installed on the wall. Normally, ordinary walls have enough load-bearing capacity for such a mounted bio fireplace.
The alternative would be ceiling-mounted fireplaces. These hanging ethanol fireplaces immediately spread a cosy and romantic atmosphere.
This type of fireplace offers a variety of possibilities for your home. The design of hanging ethanol fireplaces ranges from simple stainless steel-metal products to intricately crafted fireplaces with noble and high-quality decorations and applications. Even if they are slightly more complicated to install, compared to freestanding bioethanol fireplaces, they are still quite easy to install. If you have any questions, we are always ready to help you with any questions you may have.

Advantages of an Ethanol Wall Fireplace
An ethanol wall fireplace that can be mounted on the wall offers many advantages. Compared to a freestanding bio ethanol fireplace, the ethanol wall fireplace saves a lot more space in your home. Since the fireplace is mounted on the wall, it does not take up any space on the floor of your room and is therefore perfectly suited for smaller apartments or smaller rooms.
Another advantage of these modern fireplaces for mounting on the wall in your home, is that they are relatively cheap to buy. Of course, there are also higher priced models, but in a 1:1 comparison, ethanol fireplaces for hanging are usually a little cheaper. It's worth mentioning that the operation and maintenance costs are pretty much the same as for a normal fireplace stove. It is not the fireplace variant that determines the consumption and the price but the capacity of the burner.
Another advantage of these fireplaces is that it cannot be overturned. An upright freestanding bio fireplace on the floor is normally not fixed and can, therefore, be a potential source of danger, if it were to be pushed or bumped into. Especially in households with children or pets, this danger should not be underestimated.
Hanging Bioethanol Fireplaces for Indoor Areas
Hanging bioethanol fireplaces are usually mounted indoors but are not limited to that – it is also possible to mount the biofire outdoor. Before a bio fireplace is mounted indoors, there are a few things to consider.
Firstly, the load-bearing capacity of the wall, on which the fireplace is to be hung, must be taken into account. This should be checked beforehand, for the necessary load capacity. If the bearing capacity is not sufficient, the bio fireplace must be mounted on a different wall or a different form of installation should be found. This could be a freestanding bioethanol fireplace or a built-in bioethanol fireplace.
The size of the room must also be taken into account. If possible, the room size should match the fireplace size. We will further explain the reasons for this on this page.
If you want a built-in fireplace that will have to be recessed into the wall or a furniture, this is also possible. We have a huge selection of different ethanol fireplaces. Should you want a freestanding, hanging or one to be recessed – this is all possible.
The Right Design is a Must
We have the right thing for every taste. The design has to be just right, therefore we have the popular decorative ethanol fireplace for hanging in many different designs. Both for indoor and outdoor use. Whether in a back and modern look, or something classic - we have all this available for you!
One design that is very popular is the round shape. A round bioethanol fire looks very elegant on the wall and can be chosen in many different colours. The material of a round, decorative ethanol fireplace is usually stainless steel.
The rectangular ethanol fireplace is also very popular. This is available with both rounded and non-rounded corners. Both are very beautiful and very popular in 2020. Premium stainless steel metal is also mostly used for this type of ethanol fireplace. But many of the ethanol fireplaces are also available in black and white.
Should you need more information about the different ethanol fireplace designs, or which bioethanol fire will be the best in your home, we will be happy to answer your questions.
Ethanol fireplaces is not only available for mounting on the wall, we also have some other types of fireplaces, for example mantel bioethanol fireplaces.
Basics about the Fire in a Bioethanol Fireplace
For a fire to burn, it needs 3 things. One is fuel. The fuel of a bioethanol fireplace is, as the name suggests, ethanol. In our case, this is not just any ethanol, but eco friendly bioethanol. In an electric fireplace, the electricity would be the fuel.
Second, we have the heat. This heat is generated when the fuel is heated by the initial ignition and is then further retained by the flame.
Lastly, a fire in a bio fireplace needs oxygen to burn. Oxygen is not something that we have to add to the fire, it is contained in the air.
But fire does not just need oxygen to burn, it also consumes it. This means that the oxygen in the area, with a burning ethanol fireplace, will decrease over time. This has an effect on the people in that area. Just like fire, people need oxygen to live.
However, an ethanol fireplace is not a heater. Unlike an ethanol fireplace, a heater serves as the primary source of heat. A bioethanol fire cannot be used as a primary source of heating.
Hanging Bioethanol Fireplaces for Outdoor Areas
Bioethanol fireplaces to be hung on the wall are not limited to indoor use only. They can just as well be used and installed outdoor, where it can add a modern look to your outdoor area.
In order for the ethanol fireplace to be able to be mounted outside, it logically requires a wall. This can be build separately or you can use an existing wall. Using an existing one to mount the ethanol fireplace on, is not an option for some people, as there is simply none available. Many of our customers have therefore built a brick or concrete wall to mount a fireplace on. A perfect do-it-yourself project that does not cost much. Check out our customers pictures to get inspiration.
Just as with indoor use, the load-bearing capacity of the wall must be taken into account, when installing the fireplace. This should be high enough to support the fireplace while hanging.
A large number of our customers have hung a bioethanol wall fireplace on a shed wall. This looks super great and modern and is very space-saving. If the shed wall is near the terrace, this is of course even better.
A big advantage when placing our ethanol fireplace in the outdoor area, is that they are a great source of light on warm summer evenings. You will not need any other lights, you can simply light the bio fuel fireplace. A practical and eco friendly solution!
For outdoor use, it is also possible to buy a built-in fireplace that should be recessed into the wall or in a furniture – it’s up to you.

How are Bioethanol Wall Mounted Fireplaces Installed and What Should I Pay Attention to?
A question that we are often asked by our customers, is what to pay attention to when installing a bioethanol wall mounted fireplace at home. It is a great question, because of course safety should be considered when installing a fireplace with possible fire hazards.
Let's clarify - there are a few things to consider when installing a bioethanol wall mounted fireplace. Firstly, there is the load-bearing capacity of the wall on which the bioethanol fireplace is to be hung.
You should therefore first find out the weight of the ethanol fireplace. The easiest way to do this is to check the respective products page in our shop. Here, in addition to weight, we also have a lot of other useful information about your product. After you have found out the weight, you should compare it with the load capacity of your wall. If the load capacity is too low, you will have to find another place to mount your biofuel fireplace.
However, we would like to add that we have never experienced any case, where the load-bearing capacity was too low for the weight of the ethanol fireplace. So if you have a standard wall, you can usually assume that the load-bearing capacity will be sufficient.
Another factor to consider is whether the wall, upon which the ethanol fire is to be attached, is fireproof. This must be checked under all circumstances, otherwise, unexpected dangers may arise. Although many of our ethanol fireplace products have a fireproof rear wall, the supporting wall should also be fireproof for maximum safety. Fireproof materials here are for example stone, concrete, or brick.
After the load-bearing capacity and fire-resistance materials have been determined, it is important to consult the instructions for use. These should be taken to hand, as not every ethanol fireplace and installation is the same. Where some bio ethanol fires require support brackets or accessories for installation, it is sufficient for other biofuel fires to mount them directly on the wall using fixed screws. Any accessories required are always included.
Every step of the instructions must be followed, otherwise, accidents or improper installation may occur, which in turn may have unpleasant consequences later. The assembly and operating instructions must, therefore, be read and understood before starting assembly. If you do not understand any points in the instructions or you need help in any other way, please contact us, and we will attempt to help you with the installation of you ethanol fireplace.
After mounting the bio ethanol fire, you can start using it immediately. But remember that the ethanol fireplaces burns with a real flame, so you have to keep in mind which elements or things you are placing close to the bio fireplace.
The Size of a Room Determines the Size of the Bio Ethanol Fire
Although an open window supplies the room with sufficient fresh air and thus oxygen, every area where a bio ethanol fire is located should have a certain minimum size. So what is the minimum size?
The minimum size of a room depends on the size of the bioethanol burner of the ethanol fire. The larger the bio ethanol burner, the more bioethanol fuel it consumes and hereby consumes more oxygen.
We have created a practical diagram for you. From this diagram, you can see the minimum size of your room for the right fireplace. You can find the diagram in our guide about Room size and the size of a bioethanol fireplace. On the vertical axis, the room size is shown in m² and on the horizontal axis, you will find the filling quantity of the burner in litres.
The Burner of a Bioethanol Fireplace
The selection of wall mounted fireplaces is large, and the same goes for the choice of bioethanol burners. In our shop, you will find different sizes from 0.3 litres up to 1.5 litres – the bigger the burner, the bigger the flame will be.
The most common size for wall fires is 1.5 litres. With this capacity, you can expect a burning time of up to 6 hours per filling.
Some of the larger models have more than one bioethanol burner. We provide wall fires with up to six burners, lined up side by side. However, the most common, is one or two bio ethanol burners per wall fireplace.
The Oxygen Supply is Important!
Now some of you may think that there is a danger of suffocation, when you sit for a long time in an area with a lit bio fireplace. For those of you, we can quickly tell you that this is not the case. An ethanol fireplace will never be able to consume so much oxygen that a person could suffocate.
What can happen, however, is that after a certain time you could get a headache. This is not as severe, but as we all know, it is not very pleasant. But how can we prevent this? Very simple; the keyword is "airing".
To prevent the consumption of oxygen by an ethanol fireplace, it is sufficient to leave a window open when operating the fireplace. In this way, new oxygen flows continuously into the room. If you have a ventilation system with fresh air, in your house or apartment, you do not need to have a window open when using the bio fireplace.
