Forget about poor efficiency and highly-polluting smoldering fires of a typical old-style metal wood stove overheating your house during day and unable to provide any heat at night; forget constant loss of energy associated with the traditional open fireplaces; forget necessity to constantly feed your wood burning appliance. Meet high efficiency, high safety, extremely low pollution and gentle radiant heat, emitted evenly 24/7 with only two loads of firewood. All the above are characteristics of masonry heaters – a unique type of fireplace. Eco-friendly and suitable for the most advanced air-tight low-energy homes these units are combining ambiance of the real wood fire with incomparable comfort of radiant heat in the best possible way.
TULIKIVI is a Finnish company manufacturing beautifully designed highly-efficient heat-storing mass heaters from soapstone – a natural material with unique thermal characteristics superior to any other type of stone.

Two special lines offer the best value:
Classic Canadian Line features models with classic rounded corners, very smooth surface and firebox doors with curved top.
Modern Canadian Line features straight lines, square corners and doors and three beautiful finishes: classic smooth, Grafia (random thin lines cut into the stone surface by water jets) and Nobile – dark, slightly rough finish, achieved by having soft talc part of the soapstone composition washed off the stone surface, exposing hard slightly sparkly magnesite.
