High performance traditional open fires.

Take a look at the video of Paul Shaw, second-generation owner of Camelot Real Fires, as he explains how our Thermovent delivers on performance whilst retaining a heritage appearance. The heritage of this style of fire can be traced back to the mid 1700’s.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Love it!
Another customer said this about one of our fires:
“We’ve given the fire a good test run and it works really well. It certainly throws out some heat. The fire is amazing…we love it and it does everything we wanted it to do.”

 Sally, Berkshire

TRADITION WRAPPED AROUND HIGH PERFORMANCE

Keeping the tradition of your Inglenook open fireplace or French marble surround alive whether it is a fireplace restoration or an existing open fire place shouldn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort or performance.

Our Thermovent fires offer the best performance of any CE marked woodburning open fire of its type in the UK and we guarantee it will work. We cure lots of smoke problems with Thermovent open fires.

We have also helped many owners of Thatched properties sleep better at night and enjoy reduced insurance premiums with our Thermovent fires as they are lower risk than a stove.

Choosing your Thermovent couldn’t be easier. We offer three options – The Anniversary Edition, the ‘Bespoke package‘ or the ‘Tailor made package‘ plus a few additional options. Our listed prices exclude delivery and installation.

TRUEST IN OUR KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE & SERVICE

You are are at the centre of our proven design process…

If you choose a ‘Bespoke’ or ‘Tailor made’ Thermovent package, based on our quotation and agreed description with reference images, once a deposit is paid we will develop a sketch of your fire basket, canopy or dog irons for you to review, revise and approve. Once we have your agreement we will strike metal to create your unique piece of fireplace furniture.

Our design process has been refined over many years and never let us down (it has in fact saved us a few times instead.) We’re confident whatever you might ask us to create you will find close alignment between your design and the finished piece.

Visit our Open Fires Design and Customer Fires pages to see many examples.

WHY IS IT THERMOVENT IS SO EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT AS AN OPEN FIRE?

A multi-faceted approach to open fire design that you can feel but not see.

Twenty five years ago when the founder of Camelot Real Fires, Trevor Shaw, designed the first generation Thermovent he knew he would need to employ many different approaches to achieve his goal.

Getting the most from each log by keeping the heat in the fire itself as long as possible was one key element, then finding a way to pass that heat to the air around the fire and then get it moving around the room was the second. Finally the ability to control the fire, and close off the flue when not in use was the third.

When Paul, Trevor’s son, re-designed Thermovent to achieve CE mark status these same principles remained but changes such as a 140% increase in the surface area within the heat exchanges gave a significant lift in effective performance. See more on how we achieve Thermovent performance here.

The other key focus of Thermovent design is ease of use for you, the owner, and discretion. You don’t want to be aware of the features that are delivering the increase in performance – it’s an open fire that should look beautiful and in keeping with your fireplace aspirations.
