Fire Burner FAQ
What is the Fire Burner powered by?
Fire Burners are powered by denatured ethanol, which is sold under various trade names (bio-alcohol, stove fuel, and methylated spirits), sold at petrol stations, Mitre10, Bunnings and at some supermarkets and on the internet.
Is smoke produced?
No. The Combustion is totally clean and sootless. Only small amounts of carbon dioxide and water vapors are formed.
Is a chimney required?
No, because the combustion is sootless.
How much heat does it give out?
The heat comes immediately and is directed outwards, not lost up a chimney. The Fire Burner is able to warm a room of normal size.
Can I use it indoors or outdoors?
Since the Fire Burner is chimney free, it can be placed in any room, regardless of whether it is an apartment or a home in a cottage, or public premises. The product is intended for both indoor and outdoor use. Be sure to take normal fire safety measures to prevent accidents and injury. See our safety info below.
Is it environmentally friendly to heat with a Fire Burner?
Yes. Because choosing an ethanol powered Fire Burner from our range means that you employ modern technology, and modern fuels that are sustainable and safe.
Denatured ethanol is produced by fermentation of renewable raw materials such as wheat, barley and corn. Ethanol (methylated spirits) is biodegradable.
What happens when the canister inside rusts?
It is normal for the canisters to eventually rust. This will not interfere with the fire burners performance. We also stock replacement canisters if you need them.
