How many different models are available?
The Scan range features more than 40 different models and many possible variations. All together, this gives you the opportunity to come up with your own unique stove, fireplace or insert.
Where can I see the models?
All stoves are sold through authorised stove dealers. At these stove dealers', you can see various models and get answers to any questions you may have about products and prices.
Which authorities have approved the models?
The models have been approved in accordance with all significant international standards (DS 887, DIN 18891, SP 1425, NS 3058, §A15, VHR, EPA/UL, ULC, NF D 35-376, EN 13240, EN 13229). These approvals mean that the stoves have been tested for safety, efficiency (fuel economy) and environmental performance. DS-approval also means that the stoves can be used at a reduced distance from flammable materials (see under Products)
How large is the distance from flammable materials?
In tests, a minimum distance from flammable materials is measured. The distance the stoves should be from flammable materials is specific to each stove and appears in the installation instructions. However, these distances should be checked against all national requirements. (see under "Products").
If a wood-burning stove is placed on a flammable floor, it must always be placed on a surrounding plate of steel, glass or tiles. It is important to make sure that the plate meets the legislative requirements, both as far as insulation and size are concerned.
How many m2 can the stoves heat?
The stoves have been tested at specific BTU/kW-ratings. One kW can heat up to 10-20 m2 in a house with normal insulation. All stoves operate perfectly at levels above/below the tested output. The BTU/kW-intervals are stove-specific and appear under "Products".
What variations are possible?
Most models are available in black or grey, and for many models there is a variety of possibilities as regards side covering, plinths, revolving or fixed stove, top plates in glass or soap stone and many other things. The possible variations mean that you can put together your own individual model, suitable for the interior of your home.
What sort of chimney should I have?
Wood-burning stoves can be used with both steel stove-pipes and masonry chimneys. The required chimney dimensions and chimney draughts for the individual models appear in the installation instructions.
What are the comparative benefits of convection and soapstone/tiles?
A convection system ensures good air circulation around the stove and therefore good heating distribution in the space being heated. Soap stone/tile covering also traps heat and ensures stable heat output long after use.
