Wall Mounted Bio Ethanol Fireplace
A wall mounted bio ethanol fireplace is one of the most beautiful fireplace variants available on the market. As the name suggests, the special thing about these fireplaces is that you can mount them on a wall.
This opens up many design and furnishing possibilities. Whether in black, silver, grey, white, or polished stainless steel, wall mounted fireplaces are available in all imaginable versions and designs. This means that you can find just the right fireplace for you that fits your taste and style.
As with all other ethanol fireplaces, the wall mounted bioethanol fires uses bioethanol as fuel. Therefore neither smoke, soot, or other harmful substances are released - perfect as a decorative fire for your wall.

Is a Wall Mounted Bio Ethanol Fireplace Safe?
We, at bioethanol-fireplace.co.uk, offer a wide range of wall mounted bio ethanol fireplaces, which are all of excellent quality. Safety is our top priority. And for a good reason because you should and must never forget that bioethanol fireplaces produce real fire. However, unlike a gas fireplace or wood burning stove, you do not need a chimney or a vent.
Since our ethanol fires produce real fire by burning bio ethanol fuel, a high degree of safety is necessary to ensure safe and accident-free handling of the bio ethanol fires. All our fireplaces are therefore tested and certified by TÜV.
At the TÜV our products go through a high number of stress tests. They have all passed these in order to obtain a certificate. In addition, materials and assembly are tested for stability and strength. Only when all tests and requirements have been passed and fulfilled, a certificate is issued.
You can, therefore, be sure that our products are as safe as they come. Of course, handling of these fireplaces should still be done responsibly and with care.
You can read more about the safety of bio ethanol fireplaces in our guide section: Bio ethanol fireplace safety distance and risk of fire.
Many Designs of Bio Ethanol Fireplaces to Choose From
Designs for Your Bio Fireplace
The next thing to consider is that there are a large number of different designs. For example, some fireplaces are black, some silver, and some are white. Some biofuel fireplaces are even decorated with glass elements and others are very simple and made of one piece. You can often narrow down exactly what you like and what you are interested in by browsing around. This gives you a good overview of the selection offered.
Some colours of ethanol fireplaces are rather unusual. This might seem intimidating at first but a bright colour can be a perfect addition to a neutral coloured room.
It is also important to consider the environment in which the bio fireplace should be placed. If the fireplace is to be placed in a large open room it is recommended to choose a large fireplace. However, if you are looking for a fireplace for a small apartment, it may be better to look for a small table or wall fireplace or similar.
How is the Wall Fireplace Installed and What Should I Pay Attention to?
This depends on the model, and whether the ethanol wall fireplace is either screwed directly into the wall or attached to a bracket, which is then screwed into the wall. It is important to ensure that the supporting wall has sufficient load-bearing capacity to support both the ethanol fire and the bracket.
To increase the strength of the wall mounted bioethanol fire, it is recommended that the fire is screwed into a supporting beam that runs behind the supporting wall. If this is not possible, it is not a problem. In this case, however, you should be sure that the supporting wall has the necessary bearing capacity.
Depending on the model, the mounting of the bioethanol fire can be a little different. In order to prevent problems, we include assembly instructions with each of our fireplaces, if such instructions are required for the fireplace in question. The assembly instructions can also be found on the product page of the fireplace.
The same principle also applies if a bracket has to be mounted between the wall and the ethanol fireplace. Simply drill the appropriate holes, place dowels, and fasten the ethanol fireplace with the bracket. Any extra applications made of glass or premium stainless steel are only fixed after the actual fireplace has been installed. These are usually mounted with a couple of screws.
After the steps of the instructions have been carefully followed and the ethanol fireplace has been installed, it is important to check the strength of the fireplace one last time to ensure that the fireplace is securely attached and fixed. After this step, nothing stands in the way of the cosy fire.

Which Wall Mounted Bioethanol Fireplace is the Right One for Me?
This is a great question; what wall mounted bioethanol fireplace should you choose? It is a question that most people ask themselves before buying a bio ethanol fireplace, and is something that should be considered carefully.
Is it perhaps the black fireplace, made of stainless steel in the modern design, or perhaps you prefer the wall mounted bio ethanol fireplace with a glass front in silver? We will attempt to make this decision easier for you, by explaining a few things and differences that may help you choose your future ethanol fireplace.
Tips for a Long-Burning Flame
You have probably already noticed, on the respective product pages for certain products, that the burning time is indicated for ethanol fireplaces. This is composed of the kW output of the respective burner and the amount of bioethanol that is burned at once. We have a few tips for you here to extend the burning time of your ethanol fireplace stove by quite a bit - and free of charge!
The trick described does not work for all combustion chambers or fireplaces, as not every ethanol fireplace has a stainless steel lid.
Larger ethanol fireplaces and combustion chambers have a stainless steel lid, that can be pulled over the opening with a special hook, to smother the fire and extinguish it. A popular trick is to pull the stainless steel lid partly over the opening so that the stove flame is smaller. This way, the burning time of the fireplace can be extended considerably without affecting the atmosphere. As already mentioned, this trick can only be used with ethanol fireplaces that have the stainless steel lid.
How Much Heat Does a Bioethanol Fire Radiate?
How much heat a bioethanol fire produces depends on several things. But by far the most important aspect is the size of the burner. This determines how much bioethanol can be burned at once and thus the kW/hour output of the fireplace. The principle is that the larger the burner, the higher the kW/hour output or heat output. Of course, it should also be noted that ethanol consumption increases with the kW output. You should, therefore, think about how much kW output or heat you need when choosing a fireplace.
But a bioethanol fireplace is called a decorative fireplace for a reason. What many people do not know is that under normal conditions an ethanol fireplace cannot produce enough heat to be used as a primary heat source. In the warm summer months, this is possible under certain circumstances, but in winter or for heating, a bioethanol fire should not be used as the kW/hour output would simply be too low for this. Nevertheless, an ethanol fireplace can increase the room temperature by a few degrees.
Does a Wall Mounted Bio Ethanol Fireplace Work Everywhere?
When looking at a wall mounted bio ethanol fireplace, many people immediately ask themselves whether their home is sufficiently secured or equipped to operate such a fireplace. We can quickly clarify that most homes are suitable for the operation of an ethanol fireplace.
However, with an ethanol wall fireplace, there are still a few things to consider. One thing that needs to be considered is the load-bearing capacity of the wall on which the fireplace is to be hung. Thus, the weight of the ethanol fireplace should correspond to the load-bearing capacity. Most bioethanol wall-mounted fires do not weigh more than 70 kilograms; a weight that most walls can easily support. However, you should always check the load-bearing capacity of your wall.
It is also important to only hang the mounted bio ethanol fireplace on walls made of fireproof material. For example, a supporting wall made of stone or concrete should be preferred to a wooden wall. For this purpose, a fireproof rear in the fireplace between the fireplace and the wall is convenient. This fireproof rear is included in most wall fireplaces.
Then these modern bio fireplaces could be ideal for you if you want a fireplace without a chimney or vent – they are pretty much ready to go straight on the wall upon delivery. The same goes for electric fires, but they of course use electricity for burning whereas the manual bioethanol fireplace only needs bioethanol – that’s it!
Where and how is the Ethanol poured into a Wall Fireplace?
Ethanol is, as you probably already know, the fuel of an ethanol fireplace. It is best to buy ethanol in larger quantities as this saves you money. The more you buy at once the lower the price per liter. Of course, the amount you pay is higher, but in the end it would be more expensive to buy each bottle or liter of bioethanol separately.
With all ethanol fireplaces, the ethanol is filled directly into the burner - the same goes for a wall mounted fireplace. If you are accurate, you can easily pour the ethanol directly into the combustion chamber without any problems or damage. However, it is advisable to use a plastic can or funnel to avoid possible spills.
If some ethanol should get spilled outside the burner, it is important to clean it up immediately and completely, otherwise there may be permanent stains. The ethanol can be easily removed with a damp cloth or rag.
If you use your bio fireplace a lot, you might want to invest in a bioethanol pump. This pump is especially advantageous as the pump saves you the manual refilling. One end of the pump is placed in the bioethanol canister/bottle and the other end is placed in the burner. Afterward only the start button has to be pressed and the ethanol is automatically pumped into the burner. Before operating the fireplace, the pump should, of course, be removed again. Another advantage of this filling method is that you cannot spill any ethanol.
In general, the filling of a wall bio fireplace is no different from filling of any other ethanol fireplace. You also do not need to worry about safety when you fill up a wall fireplace. All our products are certified by TÜV Rheinland. The TÜV Rheinland is known for its strict load tests and requirements and is, therefore, a generally valid seal for high and tested safety.
Ultimately, Your Taste Decides
Personal taste is the keyword here. What you want and what you ultimately decide on should depend entirely on your taste. Of course, some considerations such as budget and living space can provide a possible framework, but in the end it should be your taste that decides.
If you need help, suggestions, or advice on your purchase or decision, we at bioethanol-fireplace.co.uk will, of course, be happy to assist you. Our expert team is looking forward to advise you.
Use of Wall Mounted Bioethanol Fires Outside - Is it Possible?
You bet it is possible!
Wall mounted bioethanol fires can be used both indoors and outdoors. Many of our customers have a wall-mounted fireplace outside in the garden. Of course, it is important that the fireplace is not exposed to wind and weather, especially when in use. It is therefore recommended to operate the fireplace somewhere sheltered where the weather does not affect it too much.
Just as with indoor operation, care should be taken to ensure that the supporting wall on which the wall mounted fireplace is to be mounted has the necessary load-bearing capacity and is fireproof. It is also recommended that the ethanol fireplace is dismantled in winter and stored in a dry and reasonably warm place. If disassembling the fireplace is not an option, it may be sufficient to cover the bio fireplace with a waterproof tarpaulin or similar.
Special Considerations for Bioethanol Wall Mounted Fireplace
The big difference from wall mounted bioethanol fireplaces to a normal ethanol fireplace is, as the name suggests, that it is wall-mounted. This means that the ethanol fireplace can not simply be placed wherever you want. You have to think about the location to the extent that the wall has the necessary bearing capacity and is fireproof.
These two issues are described into detail in our guide section. Here, we explain exactly what you need to pay attention to, how much weight an average wall can support, and how much an average wall mounted bioethanol fireplace weighs.
Furthermore, the fire consumes only oxygen for burning, so you have to make sure that the room size matches the size of the fireplace, so it will not take up all the oxygen in the room. If the fireplace is too big for the space you could experience headaches. We have made a guide about these sizes, so you get the right size of your bio fire to mount on the wall here: Room size and the size of a bioethanol fireplace.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the bio fireplace – we will be happy to advise you on the ventless fireplace or maybe where to mount it.
