Although European Standard EN 13229 now covers open convector fires, this British National Standard has been retained for the type of open mineral fuel fires which heat by convection as well as by radiation, it is more-or-less identical to the Standard for traditional inset open fires BS 4834, but, among other things, adds: Provisions for adjustable throat restrictors to partly close-off the flue outlet and so reduce heat loss from excess ventilation. Fires with an opening area of 850cm² or less are to have an opening into the flue of 20cm² to 35cm² (36cm² to 65cm² for larger fires), openable by a further 65cm²
The fire will have an efficiency of at least 45%.
