Solution 2.3 Wood Insert

Solution 2.3 Wood Insert

Designed to be a powerful unit, the Solution 2.3 insert offers a surprising quality of combustion. Every detail is thoughtfully planned to optimize its performance, which far exceeds the latest industry standards.

Many of its features are identical to its freestanding counterpart. Strategically positioned, a powerful heat-activated fan (144 CFM) allows an optimal redistribution of the heat produced by the firebox in the room. In addition, its design allows it to receive a faceplate whose dimensions can cover a masonry hearth with a maximum height of 32 inches and width of 50 inches. In terms of style, the Solution 2.3-I allows the user to match the door overlay to the faceplate trims, which are available in black or brushed nickel plated finishes. Designed for those looking for an eco-friendly and efficient stove; the best of both worlds!

(1) Values are as measured per test method, except for the recommended heating area, firebox volume, maximum burn time and maximum heat output.

(2) The maximum heat output (dry cordwood) is based on a loading density varying between 15 lb/ft³ and 20 lb/ft³. Other performances are based on a fuel load prescribed by the standard. The specified loading density varies between 7 lb/ft³ and 12 lb/ft³. The moisture content is between 19% and 25%.

(3) As measured per CSA B415.1-10 stack loss method.

(4) Higher Heating Value of the fuel.

(5) Lower Heating Value of the fuel.

(6) Performances based on a fuel load prescribed by the standard at 7 lb/ft³ and with a moisture content between 19% and 25%.

(7) Optimum overall efficiency at a specific burn rate (LHV).

(8) This appliance is officially tested and certified by an independent agency.

(9) Carbon monoxyde.
