New i8 from Contura for the Warmest of Welcomes

New i8 from Contura for the Warmest of Welcomes
1 October 2020 James Brooke

A dynamic new insert stove that displays fire from two or three different angles.

Europe’s leading wood burning stove manufacturer, Contura, launches the new i8 fireplace cassette, broadening its range of built-in stoves.

The striking Contura i8 insert is an upgrade of the Contura i7, featuring three different sidelight options to create a unique look, maximise fire visibility, and fit seamlessly into any space.

The stove can be integrated into almost any interior setting to create the heart of a home – whether that’s fitted into an existing fireplace or incorporated into a custom-designed recess in a ‘dream house’ build project for the ultimate of stylish statement pieces.

The i8 door comes with a cast iron frame (i8) for a robust and subtle look, or a glass frame (i8G) that emphasises the generous glass door and sidelights.

With a glorious 7kW heat output and views of the flames from all directions, the i8 will become the natural centrepiece of any room.

The i8 produces an even heat and burns with outstanding efficiency thanks to its Clean Burning system. Activated by sliding the control on the front to the left, this is an extra duct system in the rear of the stove that spreads preheated combustion air, ensuring the stove burns efficiently and for long periods and resulting in a combustion with very low particle concentrations.

“This is the first cassette stove in our range that features sidelights” says Phil Wood, Contura Country Manager for the UK and Ireland, “opening up a world of possibilities for those wishing to create a statement look and make the most of the flames. Its versatility means it will suit the most traditional and the most contemporary of living spaces and will undoubtedly create the wow factor that many homeowners look for when purchasing a stove. In a world where aesthetics is almost now more important than function, this model ticks every box.”

Features and specifications of the Contura i8:

  • Sidelight options for left, right, or both sides of the stove

Stylish yet ever practical, Contura’s wood burning stoves range from contemporary freestanding and statement fireplaces, to more classically designed, traditional insert stoves – ideal for slotting into existing fireplaces.
