Soapstone stoves
Maximum heat for longer

Soapstone Stoves from Contura

Soapstone stoves produce and store heat at maximum output. The soapstone stoves have, as well as their natural good looks, the ability to retain heat over a long period and heat is produced at a comfortable and even level. Instead of getting very hot and then cool down fast you get a more even and lasting warmth over a longer period of time using a Soapstone stove. Contura soapstone stoves are available in several sizes.

Soapstone stoves give maximum heat for longer

The soapstone’s long cooling time means that the heat is evenly distributed for a longer period of time. Its ability to retain heat and withstand flames directly makes soapstone a perfect natural material for a stove; it will stay hot for hours without the need for re-filling. That said, the heat from a soapstone stove is even and comfortable allowing you to sit close to it, while the surface of the stone doesn’t get too hot – an added safety advantage for those with young children or pets is a recommendation.

Our larger soapstone stoves allow you to bulk fill for hours of maintenance-free heating. There’s no need to get up in the middle of the night to load the fire, and you can fill your stove in the morning with peace of mind that it will still be hot when you arrive home later.

Soapstone stoves for a natural and warm home

Being near an open fire makes you feel closer to nature. So what could be better than a fireplace surrounded by a soapstone frame straight from nature itself? Soapstone is a natural material with the ability to retain heat, it also makes every fireplace unique since the graining is different each time. Besides the abilities to retain heat and withstand flames the Soapstone is a relatively soft material which makes it a perfect option for a stove frame. All Contura Soapstone stoves are reliable and unique log burners.

Soapstone stove Contura 520T Style in black and grey

The Soapstone frame gives Contura 520T naturally heat retaining qualities. The stove is compact and easy to find a spot for in your room. Each Soapstone stove is naturally different and unique due to their different shade and grainings.

How does a soapstone work?

A soapstone stove differs slightly compared to a wood burning stove in sheet metal. A wood burning stove in sheet metal heats the room with radiant heat and convection air, which makes the room heats up faster. The heat also decreases faster after the flames have gone out. A heat-storing soapstone stove is experienced more slowly as it needs more time to heat the room. Thanks to its fine properties though, the soapstone stores the heat and then emits it again for several hours even after the fire has gone out (see graph below, last addition of wood made at 03.00). If you want more information you can read about this at heat retaining stoves.

Functionally, soapstone stoves are placed somewhere between a sheet metal stove and a tiled stove, depending on how much soapstone is in it.

Fireplace accessories for soapstone woodburning stoves

Soapstone stoves can be made even more practical with our range of fireplace accessories. A fan distributes the hot air and allows it to spread rapidly from room to room, while larger stoves can be fitted with an olivine heat tank for even greater heat retention and distribution in larger rooms. These are just a few of the options available for our collection of log burners.
