IMPERA - designer woodburning stove with high efficiency
With the IMPERA model, Austrian stove specialist RIKA has set a new standard for thermal storage in log stoves. RIKA engineers working in the company's own research laboratory have developed a completely new thermal storage medium. This "heat battery" has a storage capacity nearly twice as high as that of soapstone, for example. Before the heat can escape unused through the chimney, it is directed into the heat storage block by 16 charging ducts. This permits the block to be heated uniformly and, above all, more quickly. With just eight to nine kilograms of wood, the heat store can be heated to about 200 degrees in only five hours, with the energy being released continuously back into the home as long lasting radiant heat.
RIKA's range of woodburning stoves includes many other models as well as the IMPERA designer woodburning stove. Find your individual woodburning stove
