Using a bio-ethanol fire safely? You should pay attention to this
Bioethanol fires are just as safe as gas or wood fires. If you purchase a DRU bio-ethanol fire, you can be sure that your fire has the highest safety level and is equipped with the most modern technology.
In addition to reliable equipment, it is important that you handle the bio-ethanol fire safely. We discuss what you should pay attention to when burning a bio-ethanol fire so that you always burn safely.
Fill the fuel tank safely
In order for the bio-ethanol fire to burn, it needs fuel and you are responsible for refilling the reservoir – unlike a gas fire. Refilling the reservoir of a bioethanol fire is very easy, but can be dangerous if you do this when the fire is on or has just burned. Therefore, always make sure that you fill the reservoir when the fire has cooled down completely, for example before you light it.
The system is secured in such a way that nothing can go wrong. You cannot refill if the fire has not yet cooled down sufficiently. The advanced system makes it virtually impossible to tamper, but if something is not right, the sensors will always indicate this. Thanks to this protection, you can never ignite the fire if things are not right.
Be careful around the fireplace when it is burning
The fire does not get really hot, but the glass of the fire will heat up due to the fire. Therefore, be careful near the fire when it is on or has just burned. Make sure you do not touch the glass of the fire when it is hot and keep (small) children away from a hot fire.
Ventilate the room during firing
No harmful substances are released when burning a bio-ethanol fire, but we will still advise you to ventilate the room where the fire is located during or just after firing, for example by opening a window. In this way there is always enough oxygen in the room for the optimum heating conditions.
