SAFETY

​The combination of liquid combustible, people and an open flame can be a dangerous one. Therefore, we have designed all ebios-fire® burners and fireplaces with a maximum of user safety and intuitive operating processes in mind.

Each ebios-fire® appliance is extensively tested in our factory laboratory where we monitor fuel consumption, heat output, flame behaviour and material durability. Furthermore, the majority of all ebios-fire® burners and fireplace models is safety tested and certified by TÜV Germany.

Since 2009, Spartherm has been a member of the Expert Panel in charge of formulating a new European Standard for bioethanol fireplaces, which will be introduced throughout Europe in the near future.

Through our cooperation with other European manufacturers of bioethanol fires, biochemists as well as Standardisation and Consumer Safety Organisations we were able to intensify our expertise – which we utilise daily in order to create products which are designed giving safety, functionality and quality highest priority.

All ebios-fire® appliances leave the factory lab-tested and carefully packaged in order to prevent transport damage. Each ebios-fire® burner features safety pictograms which guide the user confidently and safely to operate the fireplace. Furthermore, a dedicated User Manual is included with each fireplace, in which the user will find valuable information about the fireplace, its installation, use and maintenance as well as about the bioethanol needed in order to fuel the fireplace.

Customer Responsibility

With all the effort dedicated to creating the safest bioethanol fireplace models providing a truly magical experience for our customers, it is, however, our customers who bear the final responsibility when it comes to safely operating their ebios-fire® appliance.

Therefore, we would like to emphasise the importance of adhering to the following safety rules:

DO read the manual and adhere to all instructions given therein. Let everyone who will operate the fire read the manual as well.

We strongly advise against any amendment of any components or the design of ebios-fire® appliances. This includes the use of decorative ceramic items like logs or pebbles in the flames.

Room Air Quality

Contrary to common believe, it is not primarily the consumption of oxygen which decreases the room air quality, but rather the formation of CO2 . Carbon Dioxide is a trace gas which is naturally contained in air, but it is also produced by plants, animals, humans and – of course – any combustion process like the burning of bioethanol.

2 humans produce around 75g of CO2 per hour.

A fire which burns 0.5 litres of bioethanol per hour produces 740g of CO2.

The secondary factor influencing the room air quality is the consumption of Oxygen. Air contains in average 21% of oxygen. This means that a room of 40m² with a ceiling height of 2.5m (100m³) contains 27kg of oxygen.

2 resting adult humans consume around 55g of oxygen per hour.

A fire which burns 0.5 litres of bioethanol per hour consumes 800g of oxygen.

And last but not least, the air exchange rate is the factor, which helps to compensate for both the CO2 emission and the oxygen consumption.
