Enhancing Guest Experience with Eco-friendly Fire Solutions

Designed for the environment, made for entertaining, built to last – today’s range of bioethanol fireplaces provide the hospitality industry with the freedom and flexibility to incorporate fire in a commercial setting, be it indoors or out. 

When you factor in flueless, self-contained construction, zero-clearance designs and a smoke-free flame, it’s little wonder that establishments like Bournemouth's Hotel Miramar and the Wyndham Grand London Chelsea Harbour are using bioethanol to enhance guest experience.

Here are a few reasons why hoteliers are turning to this renewable resource to attract guests with a marketable amenity feature to drive revenue.

Eco-friendly fuel solution

Bioethanol – or simply 'ethanol' – is a renewable energy source made by fermenting the sugar and starch components of plant by-products such as sugarcane. This eco-friendly formulation is stored in the device’s internal reservoirs, meaning there are no pipes or cables required during the setting up process.

Flueless installation

Free of the physical constraints of gas lines, electrical connections, venting and chimneys – not to mention the associated costs required to install them – means that bioethanol fireplaces can be installed virtually anywhere, such as lobbies, restaurants, bars and high-rise balconies.

Zero-clearance designs 

Zero-clearance fireplaces allow for installation in under an hour. Simply insert the firebox into a standard building frame or slide it into an existing fireplace cavity. Just make sure you choose products that comply with BSI EN 16647 which is the standard for decorative ethanol fireplaces.

No soot, smoke or sparks

Bioethanol burns clean so there is no smoke, soot or ash to damage valuable interiors or irritate guests. And unlike traditional wood-burning fireplaces that release particles into the air, bioethanol only emits water, heat and an insignificant amount of carbon dioxide.

Minimal disruption to clientele

Without the need for flue or pipe connections, bioethanol fireplaces can be incorporated at any stage of interior decorating, renovating or building works, quickly and easy. For example, freestanding and fireplace grates are placed into the desired location, secured into position and operated immediately. You can also buy inserts that simply slot into place and built around with your preferred finish, making it easy for builders and interior designers to work with.

To ignite, you simply pour bioethanol into the burner and light the fuel with a lighter. It doesn’t get easier than that!
