Beautiful and Best
The Akaroa’s sleek sophistication saw it named as a finalist in the Best Design Awards, 2017. The Best Awards are judged and awarded by the Designers Institute of New Zealand – a group of people who definitely appreciate, and understand, elegant and contemporary design.
Clean Air Approved Fires
Masport triple air combustion technology uses air flow from three different angles to fully burn the wood placed in your fire, resulting in less smoke and fewer emissions. This intelligent design provides outstanding efficiency resulting in a National Environmental Standard (NES) rating for every Masport fire.* *Rural fires excluded
Quality steel construction
Masport wood fires are crafted in Aotearoa, using locally sourced, New Zealand made steel to guarantee the highest levels of workmanship and quality. Most of our wood burners use 6mm-8mm steel for fireboxes and cooktops, ensuring your fireplace will stand up to the hottest conditions, work more efficiently and last the distance.
Masport radiant wood fires include a 6-8mm steel cooktop to also allow for cooking and warming. Using your wood burner to cook is fun, saves on electricity or gas use, and is a perfect option when there is a power cut. When cooking on your Masport wood fire, the area closest to the flue is the hottest and is ideal for boiling things like water, stews and porridges. By moving your pot further away from the flue, you can obtain a gentler heat that’s ideal for warming and simmering.
Burning renewable wood is a carbon neutral exercise, with no more carbon dioxide (CO2) generated than if the log was left to decompose naturally. Wood is also a naturally renewable energy source and, when obtained from sustainable forestry sources, is a better environmental choice.
*Space Heat Output is only a guide based on homes with average insulation, window areas, and 2.4m ceiling heights. Differences in these factors, as well as others like, geographical location, layout of the house, living room size, type of windows all play a part in choosing the right model for your heating needs.
