A quick presentation of the Scan 68 - a range of elliptical shaped, wood burning stoves
The Danish design origins of the Scan 68 range of wood burning stoves are emphasised by the perfect proportions, straight lines and combination of steel, glass and black or aluminium trim. The design pays respect to both the aesthetic and functional roles of the wood burner in your home.
The raised firebox gives you a fantastic view of the flames from all angles. The integrated handle and trim smoothly follow the contours of the design.
Contemporary wood burning stove on a beautiful pedestal
Mounted on a pedestal base, the wood burners in the Scan 68 range provide fantastic views of the flames. They have a light and airy look with harmonious proportions that ensure the fire is always displayed at its best.
The elliptical shape gives these wood burning stoves a special aesthetic appeal that enhances the interior and makes them a joy to behold. The large glass panes invite you to relax and unwind as you enjoy a great view of the beautiful flames.
The organic, elliptical shape is related to the human body and, by using this as a design element, the stove forms a harmonious whole with a feeling of perfection.

Wall-mounted stove - designed as decoration for the wall
The designers have created a modern wall-hung fireplace with the same beautiful form. It is mounted straight on the firewall where it appears almost to be hovering. Scan 68 Wall is well suited for small rooms and takes up a minimum of space.
The organic, elliptical shape is a hallmark of the Danish designer duo Harrit & Sørensen. And perfect proportions ensure unique viewing of the fire. The simple and aesthetic design springs from respect for the central role that the stove will play in your home.
As designers, we love this shape. It allows the stove to blend effortlessly with any style of interior.

Soapstone wood burner with natural heat storage
The designers have fashioned the beautiful, heat-retaining soapstone in an elegant way that retains the slim and attractive proportions of the stove. Scan 68-15 also features extra ornate air control vents.
When you heat your soapstone stove up properly with a good fire, the soapstone will store the heat. When the stone feels hot to the touch, you can let the fire go out and the soapstone will continue to release heat for hours.
All the wood burners in the range have carefully considered details that are designed with ease of use in mind.
Explore the smart features:
effortlessly. The handles are made of brushed aluminium which provides a good grip and the tip-out feature is especially practical on the closed base.
Although the handle is close to the flames it remains cool to the touch. This means that it maintains a temperature of less than 35 degrees Celsius above the temperature of the room and, during normal stove usage, the temperature does not exceed 50 degrees.
Ash collection system
The inside of the stove where you build the fire is called the firebox. The Scan 68 range has a firebox crafted from robust, durable cast iron that has been developed specially to achieve optimum combustion performance.
The base of the firebox is no less than 6 cm deep and has a lip inside that is shaped to fit the curve of the door and keeps ashes and embers inside the firebox.
An ash pan is concealed behind the stove door, below the burn chamber, and is shaped to fit the curved front of the door. The pan pulls out smoothly and its practical handle allows you to easily carry it and empty out the ashes.
Double glazed side windows
Several of the products in the range have side windows. They are doubled glazed, which helps keep the glass clear of soot. It also reduces the distance between the glass sides and a combustible wall.
The air regulation controls sit stylishly on the side of the stove. Clear symbols for primary air (airflow to get the fire going) and secondary air (airflow to keep it burning evenly) are discreetly embossed on the side panel.
The intuitive icon for the primary air control is a matchstick. This control regulates the air that passes through the kindling tower when you are lighting the fire. The icon for the secondary air control is a flame. This controls the flames and the temperature and regulates the air that flows down over the front glass window. This is the control you adjust to stop the glass of your stove from sooting up.
Wood burning stove in energy-efficient houses or passive houses
Wood burning stoves and fireplaces with closed combustion are a good choice if you live in an energy-efficient house or a newly-built house, or if you have negative pressure in your home.
In older houses, air is drawn through the stove. However, if a house is exceptionally airtight or mechanical ventilation is working against the natural flow of air in the chimney, this may lead to problems with the performance of the fireplace.
The recommended solution is to connect an external air supply to the wood burner. The Scan 68 features a concealed external air supply at the rear, with connection through the bottom or base.
