Elegance and warmth in your living spaces. A glowing hearth, the warm light of a fire and the smell of wood. Precious little fragments of magic created in your home by Linea VZ traditional fireplaces.
The VZ RC system is economical and does not alter the functions and the beauty of traditional open fireplaces; rather, using a sealed COR-TEN steel heat exchanger, it recovers a significant amount of the heat produced by the fireplace, and then distributes this uniformly throughout the room.
Refractory Deriving directly from the oldest traditions, these versions are economical and also suitable for cooking food. Refractory is the most commonly used material for constructing fireplaces, it heats up slowly, accumulates heat and guarantees good radiation.
Cast Iron With cast-iron plates, heated by radiant heat with quick warm.
Cast Iron and Refractory The walls of the hearth made of cast iron plates allow faster heating, while the base refractory is ideal for cooking food.
Heat recovery The “VZ RC SYSTEM” heat exchanger produces warm air by converting some of the classic models of refractory fireplaces into room-heating fireplaces, without precluding the possibility to use the product for cooking food.
An air intake opening is required (15 or 20 cm in diameter, depending on the model) that connects to the outside of the home or a ventilated space (e.g. shed, attic, garage, pantry).
The outdoor air intake must not be connected to the air intake in the clay base of the fireplace, rather the air must flow into the room through the space between the wall, fireplace and lining. Air circulation is completed by a grate (dim. 15x30 cm) placed in the decorative hood on the fireplace lining (see drawing 1).
The lining (marble, stone tiles, plasterboard, etc.), beam and decorative hood must not weigh on the fireplace (see drawing 1) but rather must be self-supporting.
The flue/chimney must be at least 3 m high above the ceiling in the room. Each fireplace or boiler must have its own flue. The minimum distance between flues is 2 m (see drawing 2); before starting to install the fireplace, make sure a suitable flue has been installed.
The flue must not weigh on the fireplace but rather should be anchored to the ceiling. Connect the fireplace to the flue using stainless steel pipes; if the connection is at the rear or on the side of the fireplace, the section between fireplace and flue must not be choked nor have a gradient exceeding 45° from the vertical (see drawings 3-4).
When having purchased an oven and fireplace together, the two connection pipes must be attached together to the flue, either by expanding the connector or fitting a 135° “T”; the valve (optional) should then be installed on the oven.
