Soapstone stoves

Soapstone is a material that absorbs heat from the stove. This means that the heat is stored for a long time, even after the last embers have gone out. Thus the heat from the Soapstone stove lasts much longer than with a stove without Soapstone.

Soapstone is a natural material and therefore there are natural variations in the surface and structure of the stone. This means that each stone is a unique piece with the stove. A large number of our wood-burning stoves are fitted with Soapstone and the appearance varies from one to another. Below you can see our wood-burning stoves with Soapstone cladding.

What is Soapstone?

Soapstone is a mineral stone consisting mainly of talcum. Talcum absorbs and conducts heat quite uniquely, which makes it the ideal material for wood-burning stoves. Soapstone absorbs the heat from the stove, so that it accumulates and is released for a long time, even after the last embers have faded. The heat from the stove therefore persists for a much longer time.

Why choose Soapstone?

Soapstone is a material that has a good ability to accumulate heat. If you choose to invest in a Soapstone stove, you will therefore have a stove that retains heat for more than 12 hours after the fire has gone out. The heat from a Soapstone stove is also smoother and looks more pleasant compared to regular convection and radiant stoves. Soapstone is also a natural material. So it varies in appearance and if you choose a Soapstone-lined stove, you will have a stove with a unique appearance.

Is the volume of Soapstone important?

The volume of Soapstone decides how much heat can be stored. The more Soapstone there is in the cladding, the more heat it can accumulate and release.

What are the benefits of Soapstone?

There are many advantages to choosing a Soapstone stove, which are listed below:
• Soapstone has a heat-accumulating effect and retains the heat long after the fire has gone out. Therefore a stove lined with Soapstone is an effective source of heating for your home.
• No two Soapstones are alike, which is why you will have a completely unique stove.
• Soapstone has an elegant appearance, which gives a unique impression to your decor.
• There are many different stoves in which Soapstone is used for cladding, so you can find the one that best suits your needs.

What are the disadvantages of Soapstone?

As Soapstone retains heat for a long time, it also takes longer to heat up. If you are looking for a wood-burning stove that heats up quickly, a Soapstone stove is therefore not the best choice.
