Product Information

Discover the Excellence of the Contura 856 Style Wood Burning Stove

When it comes to creating a warm, inviting atmosphere in your home, the Contura 856 Style wood burning stove stands out as an exceptional choice. Renowned for its superior craftsmanship and innovative design, this stove offers the perfect blend of functionality, efficiency, and aesthetic appeal. Unlike the 856G Style model, the 856 Style features a robust cast iron door, which not only enhances its durability but also adds a classic touch to its modern design.

The Beauty of Wood Burning

Burning wood in a Contura stove brings numerous benefits. Not only is wood a renewable energy source, but it also offers a unique, comforting ambience that other fuels can't match. The Contura 856 Style stove is Ecodesign ready, meaning it meets the strict environmental standards set to minimise emissions and improve air quality. This certification ensures that you can burn wood in smokeless zones, making it an environmentally friendly and versatile heating option.

Unmatched Flame View

One of the standout features of the Contura 856 Style is its ability to provide a tremendous view of the flames. The stove is designed with a large front aspect window, complemented by side windows, allowing you to enjoy the dancing flames from almost any angle in the room. This panoramic view not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your living space but also creates a cosy, inviting environment.

High Efficiency and Output

The Contura 856 Style wood burning stove boasts an impressive efficiency rating of 81% and an energy efficiency class of A+, ensuring that you get the most heat from every log. With a nominal heat output of 5kW, it is capable of heating areas up to 120m², making it ideal for both small and medium-sized rooms. The stove can accommodate logs up to 33cm in length, providing ample fuel for long-lasting fires.

User-Friendly Features

Operating the Contura 856 Style is incredibly easy, thanks to its single lever air control with intuitive 1, 2, and 3 markings. This simple control allows for precise regulation of the combustion process, ensuring optimal performance and fuel efficiency. The cast iron door is designed to withstand the high temperatures and stress associated with wood burning, ensuring long-lasting durability and reliability.

Innovative Functions

The Contura 856 Style is packed with advanced features designed to enhance your wood burning experience:

  • ASF (Automatic Start Function): This ingenious feature automatically controls the lighting air through the grate, allowing you to close the door as soon as the start-up fire is lit. This makes the stove independent of room air, providing a safer and more efficient start-up process.
  • RBF (Refuelling Boost Function): With this function, you can easily reignite embers that have nearly died out. Simply open the handle on the left side of the stove, and new oxygen will flow in from below, reviving the embers and allowing the new wood to catch light quickly.
  • SSA (Silent Sliding Ashtray): The ashbox is designed with a damping function that allows it to slide quietly and smoothly during emptying. This attention to detail ensures that even the smallest aspects of the stove are user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing.

Practical Design

The Contura 856 Style also features a convenient log compartment beneath the stove, helping you keep your logs neatly organised. An optional Soft Close Door is available for this compartment, adding an extra touch of convenience and sophistication.

Additionally, the stove offers flexibility in installation with the option of a top or rear flue connection, making it easier to integrate into various room layouts and designs.

The Contura 856 Style wood burning stove is a testament to Contura's commitment to quality, innovation, and design. Its combination of advanced features, high efficiency, and stunning flame views makes it a standout choice for anyone looking to add warmth and beauty to their home. Whether you're drawn to its robust cast iron door or its eco-friendly performance, the Contura 856 Style is sure to exceed your expectations and provide years of reliable, enjoyable use.
