NØVENT FIREPLACE range from Multibraai are the first South African designed and manufactured non-vented fireplace system. 70 - 99 % of heat is retained on these units, compared to 33 % with a vented fireplace, due to the fact that the units do not need a chimney, which means that virtually no heat can escape. In addition, the running cost per hour of the NØVENT is a third compared to other gas vented fireplaces and half compared to wood vented units.
With these Novent Fireplaces not only are the noxious gases 92% below the legal limit required by SABS and LPGSA, they also have a double pilot flame and an oxygen depletion device, which means that should the oxygen in the room drop below 83% the gas supply will automatically be shut off.
Available in both built-in (two sizes), freestanding (two sizes), double sided and drop in units (the drop-in units are custom made to the size required) in a variety of styles and finishes, the NØVENT has a choice between realistic looking ceramic logs (that glow and flicker) or the coals or pebbles that glow creating a cosy atmosphere. Visit the Haus at either one of their showrooms in Knysna or George to see the Novents in operation.
