D7: Circular Sophistication

A Unique Circular Design with Enhanced Efficiency

The latest offering from Spanish stove builders Manufacturas Rocal, the circular D7 wood burning stove, stands out among the array of wood burners available in the UK and worldwide. Its distinctive circular shape, coupled with impressive features and enhanced efficiency, makes it an appealing choice for homeowners seeking both style and functionality. In this blog post, we will explore the key attributes of the Rocal D7 stove and why it deserves consideration for your home.

Distinctive Conical Design

Setting itself apart from other circular stoves, the D7 showcases a unique taper towards the rear, transforming it from a simple cylinder to an intriguing conical design. This design element allows for a spacious 55cm diameter glass window, providing an unobstructed view of the flames. Furthermore, the tapered design minimizes the impact on the wall behind the stove and offers visually appealing curves when observed from the side, especially around the flue exit on top. To ensure a seamless connection, the D7 comes with a 1.95m length of pipe that attaches directly to the stove’s top.

Enhanced Performance and Eco-Friendliness

Manufacturas Rocal consistently seeks to improve the performance of their fires, and the latest version of the D7 is a testament to their commitment. As the fifth iteration since its launch in 2010, this version features a reduced 150mm flue diameter, making installation easier and more cost-effective. With a lower nominal output of 6.6kW, the D7 surpasses the Eco-Design emission standards enforced in 2022 across the UK and Europe. This makes it the cleanest-burning version ever produced by Rocal, contributing to a greener and more sustainable environment.

Thoughtful Design Details

The D7’s design incorporates several thoughtful details that enhance both functionality and aesthetics. The round 55cm diameter porthole door features a sleek stay-cool silicone handle, accentuated by the minimalistic Rocal logo. This conscious branding choice ensures that the focus remains on the stove’s elegant design and performance rather than excessive branding.

Warmth and Efficiency

The D7 wood burning stove boasts a striking circular design that sets it apart from conventional wood burners. Its large circular glass window provides a captivating view of the fire inside, while the stove itself can generate between 4.5 and 8kW of heat with an impressive 88% efficiency. This ensures that you not only enjoy the warmth and ambience but also experience energy efficiency at its best.

Versatile Installation Options

One of the notable features of the Rocal D7 is its versatility in installation. The stove can be installed in three different ways to suit your preferences and space constraints. It can be mounted on the wall, placed as a freestanding unit using the optional pedestal foot, or suspended from the ceiling with a customized ceiling fixing. Rocal even provides a length of pipe that can be tailored to your room and ceiling requirements, ensuring a seamless installation.

Efficient Air Control System

Rocal stoves are known for their advanced air control systems, and the D7 is no exception. Located on the right-hand side of the stove, the primary and secondary air control sliders allow for precise regulation of airflow. The primary air slider, identifiable by a small flame icon, supplies air to the bottom of the firebox, facilitating easy fire establishment. The secondary air, also known as airwash, washes down over the glass, keeping it clean and feeding back into the fire. This ensures a clear view of the flames while maintaining optimal combustion.

External Air Supply Capability

The Rocal D7 offers the convenience of connecting to an external air supply, which can often eliminate the need to draw combustion air from the room. Depending on the stove’s placement, the external air can be brought in from either the base or the rear of the stove. This feature is particularly beneficial when installing the stove against a wall or with the optional freestanding pedestal foot. However, if external air is not feasible, the stove can still utilise room air for combustion.
With its iconic circular design, impressive heating capacity, versatile installation options, and thoughtful design details, the Rocal D7 wood burning stove stands as a compelling choice for homeowners seeking both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Its efficient air control system, ability to connect to an external air supply, and distinctive conical design further elevate its desirability. Moreover, the enhanced performance and eco-friendliness of the latest version make it a worthwhile addition to any home. Consider the Rocal D7 for a wood burning stove that combines elegance, efficiency, and sustainability.
