DRU for architects

Fires and fireplaces are an important area of consideration for architects and designers, whether they are working for a private client on a home refurbishment or on a large new-build development.

In a traditional home, the fireplace was always based around the existing chimney, with all the limitations that meant. However, because of new gas fire and wood stove technology, fires and stoves can now be designed in an almost unlimited number of ways and installed in previously inaccessible locations.

DRU contemporary fires and fireplaces have become the product range of choice for many architects, interior designers and new-build developers. This is because of the large choice of models, fuel types, flexibility of installation and energy efficiency standards.

Product range

DRU

The DRU product range comprises contemporary gas fires that are inserted into a wall or chimney, suspended from a wall or ceiling or mounted on the floor, such as a freestanding gas stove.

Dik Geurts and Spartherm

The same range of options are available in wood burning fires and stoves. DRU markets these products under two brands, Dik Geurts and Spartherm

Each brand offers a wealth of choice, impressive standards of clean burning and energy efficiency and unique features, such as vertically sliding glass windows that can be designed into many domestic and commercial property schemes.

Ebios-Fire

The third option to be offered by DRU is Ebios-Fire, a collection of contemporary fires that are fuelled by renewable bioethanol.

Ebios fires require no chimney and can be installed in almost any location, including hotels, restaurants, high rise apartments, loft conversions and much more.

They are an architect’s dream, as they can be incorporated into building plans without the need for complex plumbing considerations. They do not release any harmful emissions and are 100% energy efficient.

DRU contemporary fires are not simply designed for modern homes. They are equally suitable for period style properties with modernised features, whether in a town, city or rural location.

Home owners are choosing contemporary fires as part of a new-build or refurbishment project. With their sleek, modern appearance and realistic fire beds, they are often the finishing touch in a grand design, taking pride of place in the heart of the home or new development.
