A thermal rope seal to seal stove doors and also often used behind stove glass. This smoke seal is usually fitted into a groove on the door and held in place with adhesive.
Some stove installers also use ceramic rope to seal between the flue pipe and the flue spigot. Ceramic rope is held in place with high temperature superseal rope glue.
A high temperature adhesive used to glue ceramic rope seals, thermal tape, and ceramic fibre seals to stoves.
This glue is very easy to use and you don't need very much.
Stove bright high temperature paint has a unique blend of heat resistant pigments in a silicone polymer resin. The paint dries very fast on initial contact with the stove, but only cures once the stove has been lit - as the paint warms up. These temperature resistant paints provide excellent colour retention and film integrity in working temperatures up to 600°C. We estimate that one 400ml can will cover 1 square meter, so for an average sized stove you would need two cans.
Generic flue dampers are fitted inside the first length of flue pipe going into the top of of your stove, or the first length going into a tee at the back of the stove. The flue damper is used to regulate the airflow to the stove making it more controllable.
These flue dampers are fitted by drilling two appropriately sized holes in the flue pipe on opposite sides. The circular plate of the flue damper is then held up inside the flue pipe, whilst the bar that lets you operate the damper is pushed through the first hole, through the plate, and then out of the other hole. Be aware that there may be sharp bits of metal from the drilling.
A self-adhesive webbing tape is fitted round the frame of the window on the door of the stove to protect the glass from touching the metal, so allowing it to expand and contract independently to the metal. We can supply varying widths.
Fire cement is used to seal the join between lengths of flue pipe together as well as to seal the join between the first length of flue pipe and the stove. Many stoves also have their joints sealed with fire cement.
Is the window of your stove blackened and difficult to see through? Stove glass cleaner is handy for removing tar and other deposits from the stove glass window. Burning some hot fires will tend to burn off deposits from the stove glass, whilst slow burning, especially with wood, will tend to leave deposits on the glass. We can supply glass cleaning pads or liquids in a spray bottle or aerosol cans.
Mica is a silicated opaque material that was used on old stoves before the introduction of the more transparent stove glass. We have a range of different sheet sizes that you can cut to size with scissors. Mica is normally held in place with fire cement

Smoke pellets for smoke testing your chimney.
A 300mm square of replacement flue gasket that you can cut to size.
A stovepipe thermometer is a useful aid to tell you whether your stove is running at its optimum temperature. By running your stove at the correct temperature you will be using the fuel most efficiently and will be avoiding a build up of tar in your chimney which is the main cause of chimney fires. A magnetic stove thermometer is not suitable for double skinned flue pipes or for insert stoves.
Moisture meters are a very useful aid to checking what the water content is in wood. Wood for both woodburning stoves and open fires should be of a water content of less than 20%. Moisture meters take the guess work out of guaging whether your firewood really is seasoned.
The Burner Firestarter firelighters are supplied in a tub of 100 sachets. These firelighters are more efficient than standard solid firelighters as they have a higher flashpoint and are free of aromatic solvents. When one to three sachets are placed in your fire and lit, they immediately burn at a very high temperature causing the fuel in your fire to catch very quickly. These odourless, highly efficient firelighters are useful for most types of fuel,including wood, charcoal and coal.
