Awhile back we featured another designer eco-friendly fire place called Planika. Well we've tracked down their competitors with EcoSmart Fires. Fueled by exquisitely clean burning denatured alcohol, a renewable resource, the EcoSmart Fires are versatile, chic, and unique. This Australian innovation of an environmentally friendly open fire place is perfect for inside the home due to its amazing adaptability and mobility. There is no need for the traditional flue of a fireplace, no gas or fuel hookup, and its simplicity and modular design lets you plop it down in any safe location. For those of us that look forward to chilly nights and a warm fire we can leave the wood where it belongs, as a tree.
Ethanol is an absolute alcohol, produced by fermentation of sugars originating from agricultural and forestry products; mainly sugarcane, potatoes, bananas, beetroot and recently cereals such as wheat. In accordance with various global regulations Ethanol (100% alcohol) cannot be sold in its purest form to avoid human consumption. Ethanol producers de-nature ethanol with various substances for re-sale purposes and it is then called Denatured Ethanol.
The burners can be installed into counter tops, walls, tables, patios, you name it as long as you follow the compliance regulations set forth by EcoSmart fires (so you don't burn the place down!). "It's elegant, sophisticated, timeless, versatile, practical and eco-friendly."
