The History of Morso
Although the Morso Foundry was started all the way back in 1853, it was only in the early 1900’s that they began to produce and supply slow combustion wood fireplaces and heaters in Denmark. In 1915 Morso received the coveted title of Purveyor to the Royal Court for supplying such a monumental fireplace to the royal family.
Today Morso has developed its distinctive designs globally, which successfully add comfort and warmth to homes around the world.
Cast Iron Design
These cast iron, slow combustion stoves are undoubtedly meant to last most of a lifetime and thus the aesthetic designs follow a timeless and classic look so that they can remain a strong feature in your home for many years to come.
The Morso slow combustion fireplaces are made from superior Cast iron (almost twice as thick as the sheet-iron that some other stoves are made from). Cast Iron is the steel of choice because it transfers heat very slowly, which makes it well-suited to vast temperature changes and heat retention.
With their incredible global presence, Morso takes on a great responsibility. They are so confident in their products that they offer a 10-Year guarantee against casting and other production faults according to the warranty conditions.
Effects on the Environment
Modern Morso fireplaces, if used correctly are amongst the most efficient wood burning fireplaces in the world. They have reduced the emission of particles to an absolute minimum by using refined combustion technology and advanced purification systems. Morso takes great pride in this and boasts meeting some of the strictest environmental standards in the world. A large number of these stoves can be fitted in the UK smoke-free zones, due to their remarkable clean burning & low emissions.
It is important to note that in combination with a slow combustion fireplace like this, you will also need to use the correct wood to ensure an effective and environmentally friendly burn. Ideally, the wood you use should be kiln dried with a maximum moisture content of 20% or less.
Cast Iron is manufactured from scrap iron, which helps reduce waste and overall assists in protecting our environment
