Design.

Attika fireplaces have won numerous international design prizes. And that doesn't happen by accident! Each of our new developments is accompanied by extensive colour and form studies as well as a whole series of comprehensive tests and trial operations. In keeping with our claim to premium quality, we strive for the perfect combination of design, material and function in line with Swiss standards. When others are satisfied, we keep on thinking. Not only do Attika stoves have a timeless beauty, therefore: they are also more functional and user-friendly in everyday use.

CleverAIR technology.

CleverAIR™ is our invention designed to conveniently regulate the air supply – meaning you don't have to. In fact, all you need to do is put in dry wood and light it – the technology handles the rest!

When it comes to operating a stove, the CleverAIR™ automatic combustion control system is of significant benefit to the environment as it eliminates the sort of handling errors that can arise when setting the fresh air supply manually. This reliable technology guarantees that the fire box is automatically supplied with exactly the right mix of primary, secondary and tertiary air in every phase of combustion. Emissions of particulate matter and CO are kept to a minimum as a result of this optimised combustion and are therefore hardly measurable.

Thanks to the reliability of thermostatic bimetals, the CleverAIR™ control unit designed by Attika is fault and maintenance-free with the correct firing method. CleverAIR™ is a purely mechanical system, removing the need for electric power and eliminating error-prone electronics. The insert is located inside the stove and has no impact whatsoever on the exterior design.

Are you prepared for the future? You will find all the stoves with CleverAIR™ in our stove finder.

Self-locking system©.

Really good design and genuine user-friendliness are often only revealed in the inconspicuous details that make day-to-day handling easier – in the Self-Locking-System© developed in Switzerland by our designers, for example. A gentle pull (or slight thumb pressure on some models) and the fire box door is easily opened in an ergonomic sequence of movements. When released it quietly slips back into the catch automatically before locking securely. For you, this means the ultimate convenience with maximum safety.

Nearly all our stoves are fitted with the practical Self-Locking-System©. Make sure you follow the relevant pictogram.

Customized concept.

The Attika Customized concept in the VIVA L series leaves you completely free to design your own stove. The idea is simple: choose from a whole series of freely combinable components to assemble the stove that is most to your liking and a perfect match with the style of your furnishings. With VIVA 100 L, VIVA 120 L and VIVA 160 L Attika Customized will even allow you to decide how you would rather regulate the air supply to light your fire: manually or with CleverAIR™? Each VIVA L thus becomes a unique piece, fully tailored to your individual requirements.

Attika Customized is only available from Attika! As well as VIVA, the concept can also be applied to a limited extent to the PILAR model series.

Heat reserve insert©.

For many of our stoves, the Attika heat reserve insert©, made of soapstone or fireclay, is an additional option for saving energy. It is a natural characteristic of both soapstone and fireclay to absorb heat and retain it for a period of time (heat store). That means the inserts stay nice and warm, even when the stove has been extinguished. The result? You enjoy hours of healthy radiated heat from only a minimum of wood. This dosed output of heat from a stove makes perfect sense if demand is low, for example in well-insulated buildings (Minergie house, low-energy house, climate-controlled house).

Incidentally, the COLUNA, JUNO and JUNO CERAMIC storage heating stoves are made of soapstone and possess maximum storage capacity. Each of these storage heating stoves can emit the energy transferred from the fire to the stone into the living room as mild radiated heat for up to 15 hours.

If heat storage is also important to you, then you can use our stove finder to choose your stove with heat reserve insert©

 

Cool-touch door handle.

The cool-touch door handle does away with the need for gloves and lets you operate the stove with your bare hands at any time. Over the years, thousands of satisfied customers have appreciated the convenience of this unique feature, which is fitted on many Attika stoves.

 

Revolving console.

Attika stoves provide the greatest possible view of the captivating fire. The revolving console on most models means it couldn't be easier to enlarge this by up to 360°, allowing you to enjoy the fire in your living space from every angle, wherever you are.

Each of our revolving consoles is precisely attuned to the corresponding stove. The high-quality roller bearings or ball bearings ensure that they run smoothly with virtually no noise.

We have developed a special flue tube set with swivel mechanism and damper for our stoves with revolving console in order to ensure a full 360° turn at any connection point.

You will find all the stoves that are available with a revolving console in our stove finder.

Quality panels from SCHOTT ROBAX®.

The TÜV-certified SCHOTT ROBAX® fire viewing panels of our stoves are particularly safe thanks to their extremely low thermal expansion. They can be exposed to enormous transient temperatures of up to 760 °C and withstand considerable heat and cold shocks. These remarkable properties and the extremely long lifespan are what enable SCHOTT ROBAX® to guarantee full protection against flying sparks and true enjoyment of the fire in Attika stoves.

Glass cleaning.

To make sure you can enjoy a clear view of the dancing flames through the ceramic glass, our sophisticated cleaning system conducts preheated combustion air through the fire box into the combustion chamber, where it cleans the ceramic glass panel from the inside as a continuous draught and keeps it largely free of soot.

The glass cleaning system comes as standard with every Attika stove and is one of the reasons why our stoves are visibly more attractive.

 

AIR system.

Attika stoves can be installed in low-energy and Minergie houses without a problem thanks to the AIR system. The AIR system is a controlled method for feeding in external combustion air and was specially developed for use in living spaces with a very compact design and/or controlled room ventilation. Once connected to the AIR system, your stove will burn in a "closed circuit" regardless of the ambient air, ensuring a perfect fire even in living spaces with negative pressure of up to 4 Pascals. In Germany most of our stoves comply with the stringent requirements of the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt).

Depending on the model and structural factors, the AIR system supplies fresh air through an exterior wall behind the stove or directly through the floor. Our AIR installation set was specially developed in-house so that this connection can be set up to look suitably discreet.

 

The cleanest fire in the world!

bionic fire™ is the product of many years of intensive research in pursuit of the vision to create the world's cleanest stove. Today bionic fire™ is the most intelligent, most convenient and cleanest way of heating a room with wood and the winner of three major awards for ecological design.

Thanks to innovative technology, bionic fire™ burns with two fires – one above and one below. This special form of afterburning makes the stove, which was created in collaboration with German innovation consultants at the Global Mind Network, one of the cleanest wood burners in the world: 86% efficiency, 4 mg particulate matter, 302 mg CO. These are the best values ever measured by the Danish Technological Institute, an accredited testing centre.

It's simply more convenient to light a bionic fire™ than a conventional afterburn stove on which the actual afterburning still has to be set manually. bionic fire™ has its own specially developed intelligent automatic changeover system, which activates afterburning in the lower fire box at exactly the right moment once the wood is sufficiently ablaze and reliably controls the air supply from A to Z. The automatic changeover system uses the natural physical properties of thermostatic bimetals, which have been proven a million times over, and ensures that bionic fire™ burns cleanly and efficiently at all times. You on the other hand can enjoy your fire without going to any trouble: simply load it with wood and light it. The technology will do the rest!
