About Charnwood


There is nothing quite like a real fire to give that enduring warmth to your home and our wood burning and multi fuel stoves do just that. Ultra efficient and incorporating the latest and best clean-burn technologies these stoves not only look great but will heat your home in a very efficient manner.

Wood is a renewable fuel, and therefore the environmental benefits of using a wood burner to heat your house are considerable. With high prices of oil and gas, burning wood and solid fuel to heat your home also makes great economic sense. Our leading ranges all conform to EN 13240. 

The ability of our multi fuel stoves to burn both wood and solid fuels gives you flexibility when your first choice of fuel is not available. We offer these products along with a range of fireside accessories.

New Vlaze Range of Wall Mounted Heat Shields

VLAZE is a new range of vitreous enamel wall cladding designed specifically for the fireplace. British made by Charnwood’s sister company AJ Wells, the exceptional surface finish is created by fusing powdered glass to steel at temperatures in excess of 800°C. The result is a luxurious, vibrant glaze that boasts excellent thermal properties, does not crack, distort or discolour when exposed to the heat of the stove and wipes clean.

VLAZE WALL MOUNTED HEAT SHIELDS are designed to be placed behind the stove.  When installed the shield reduces the stoves distance to a combustible materia or walll to 100mm.  The vitreous enamel panel features a dual skin that provides exceptional thermal protection and an effective convection system.

Using a rail mounted system they are quick and easy to install. The heat shields are Vlaze 1available in 3 sizes: 800 x 1800mm, 800 x 1200mm and 1100 x 1800mm to suit all our freestanding stove models.

VLAZE INSERT STOVE SURROUNDS are custom made in one piece to fit around any insert stove (not just a Charnwood!). The vitreous enamel panel features a soft radius edge and is insulated with fire rated fibreboard.

The VLAZE process and finish is identical to that of which AJ Wells use to manufacture the iconic signage and architectural cladding for London Underground.

Available in a choice of eleven colours including standard Black, All White and Basalt. There is also a choice of overlay patterns and textures including designs by Mini Moderns (Whitby, pictured).

The VLAZE range also includes kitchen splashbacks and worktops as well as bathroom panels.
