About Faber

A lot of people still remember Faber from the first gas stoves, but the company's history starts even a little before that. Already in 1844 Jan Gerrits Faber laid the foundation in the Frisian Franeker for the Faber we know today with the formation of a forge. The natural gas field in Slochteren resulted in the first large run on gas fires in the 1960's. Faber anticipated this with new products and techniques. In the years that followed Faber claimed the position of market leader for chimney stoves. Retailers and wholesalers sold these gas fires en masse. In 1996, Faber was the first to introduce the closed combustion technique, a technique that was later adopted by many other manufacturers.

Faber has launched the extra-large Triple Premium XXL fire, giving its dealers the chance to offer an even wider range of design possibilities for new build or renovation projects.

Set to be a popular choice for self builders and designers, the 3-sided fire can stylishly create a striking centrepiece in even the largest of rooms. The Triple Premium XXL model is complete with Faber’s Step Burner® technology - a revolutionary burner for gas fires, which can be adjusted according to the visual, comfort and heat requirements of the homeowner.

At full power, the flames are visible over the entire width of the fuel-bed, providing powerful heat output with the unrivalled ambience of real flames. When less heat is required, just the centre of the burner is lit, offering a smaller, yet still dramatic, visual effect and atmosphere. What’s more, with the flexibility to be installed in virtually any room, the fire’s balanced flue system offers almost limitless options for designers to indulge their creativity when choosing where and how to incorporate the fire into their designs.

Matt Kisler, brand manager for Faber, comments: “The Triple Premium XXL offers bespoke installation opportunities, giving a growing number of self-builders in particular the chance to customise the fire into the architecture of their room from the very start of the project.”

Themed around ‘telling a story’, the brochure focuses on the notion of getting together around a fire to catch up and share moments, bringing the traditional camp fire concept into the most stylish of living rooms and commercial settings.

It includes all the highlights from Faber’s collection of quality European fires, including the new MatriX collection, the Premium range of frameless fires, and the Aspect range, perfect as room dividers. Also included are Faber’s freestanding models, offering a perfect alternative for solid fuel stoves, and the brand’s popular outdoor fires.

Full specifications of all models are featured, including heat input, heat output and efficiency, along with standard and optional design and operational features including trim, frames, controls and burners.

They create a place to gather with friends and family to share memories and have meaningful conversations – and that’s the story we are trying to portray with this new brochure.

Cornering the Market

Faber Cornering the MarketWith no less than seven models that offer a corner specification, Faber’s range of premium gas fires is helping designers and retailers to meet growing demand for corner fires.

Faber’s Solution Premium gas fire is a frameless corner fire, specifically designed for installing in a corner where space is limited. However, with a wide selection of other three-sided and L-shaped models, Faber is the manufacturer of choice for high-spec corner fires.

Tracey Falshaw, marketing manager for Faber, said: “Corner fires provide a space-saving option for many modern properties, especially high specification apartments. But, they can also create a stylish design feature in rooms of all sizes and there is a real push to turn small, sharp corners and oddly- shaped alcoves which typically become unused spots into beautiful, functional spaces.”

Cornering the Market 2For the more luxurious of living room settings we are also seeing increased interest in developing new or secondary focal points that blend with, but do not impede existing design elements. In order to create a successful new focal point, it is imperative to make every design decision in a space appear intentional, and the increasing demand for premium fires, including corner installations, as both a design feature and a heat source helps to fulfil this intent.”
The Faber collection of top-of-the-range gas fires includes the Duet Premium, Honest and Respect Premium designs, alongside the Solution Premium dedicated corner fire. With a variety of design and size options, these frameless fires are becoming increasing popular when installed in a corner.

Tracey Falshaw adds: “As with all of the Faber balanced flue collection, our corner installations come with unbeatable flame picture and high heat output to provide the perfect combination of warmth and atmosphere. Remote control comes as standard and many offer integration with our ITC app so users can control the flame picture and heat output via their tablet or mobile phone.”



Faber Fires Burns Bright at the Belfry

Two top of the range built-in gas fires from Faber are taking centre stage at The Belfry, one of the UK’s leading hotel, golf and leisure resorts.

Faber Fires Burn Bright At The Belfry HotelFaber’s Relaxed Premium L frameless fire was supplied and installed through Allwood Fireplaces in the outstanding Presidential Suite as part of a multi-million pound refurbishment at the five-star venue near Birmingham, which is known as the spiritual home of the Ryder Cup.

Relaxed Premium L incorporates Faber’s patented Step Burner, which is divided into three sections to allow the full width of the burner to be lit or just the centre section, each in high and low flame settings.

The fire and flue were installed by Allwood Fireplaces, leaving The Belfry’s contractors to build a frame and finish around it in the suite’s living area. A Faber Aspect ST-XL was also installed in the hotel reception area as part of the £26million refurbishment project, which was completed this year and saw every bedroom and meeting room, sofa and cushion upgraded.Faber Fires Burn Bright At The Belfry Hotel 2

Allan Gent from Allwood Fireplaces said: “We suggested Faber for the Presidential Suite because we knew it could deliver a genuinely premium product that would be fitting for the top suite in such a prestigious hotel.

“The look and feel of the Relaxed Premium range, the flame picture and the overall quality of the product means it is one of the best fires you can buy on the market, not to mention the impressive service and aftercare package. We had no hesitation recommending it when we met with the architect, contractor and project team at the hotel and it’s a fantastic installation.
