Faber Fires Technology

Faber Fires are renowned for manufacturing balanced flue gas fires with advanced flame effects. There are four flame choices. Please refer to the Faber Fires brochure for more information.

The Log Burner®
A ceramic log set and the flames concentrate in the centre of the log set. The Log Burner® resembles a small camp fire and is well suited to the smaller square units.

Flat Burner®
The Flat Burner® works also with the ceramic logset and the pebble set. It spreads the flames over the entire width of the fire, offering high output. The Flat Burner® can also be used with propane gas.

Emberded Burner® 
Stylish and elegant curved shape flames are distributed across the entire width of the fire. Available with the log or pebble set.

Step Burner® 
If you require a variety of flame choices we recommend The Faber Step Burner®. The Step Burner® at full power, the flames are visible over the entire width. When less heat is required, the fire is centred in the middle of the burner. At one setting less, these flames become smaller, but still give the effect of a burning fire with wonderful ambience. However, the gas fire would no longer emit a lot of heat, so even in the summer months the room temperature will remain at a pleasant level.

Grate Expectations Ltd supply and install Faber Fires. Please contact our showroom for further details and technical advice.

Operate your Dru using the free App!

The free DRU Control app enables you to operate the fire easily and the Eco Wave lets you design your own flame with your fingertips, control gas consumption level and diagnose technical faults.

NEW! Dru 3D Visualiser

The DRU 3D Visualiser app uses ‘augmented reality’ technology. This means you can project your chosen Dru fire or stove onto any required virtual environment, for example your living room.

Place the ‘A3 Marker’ in the position you wish to install the fire, select a DRU fire, finally aim the camera of your smartphone or tablet at the marker and take photo. Your chosen fire will appear in 3D. An A4 Marker is available if you do not have an A3 printer.
