A built-in stove is installed against a flat wall or into a corner and has a false chimney breast built around it, typically used in new-builds or homes without a chimney. Built-in stoves have an advantage over cassette stoves when it comes to design, they can be typically larger, making them great for bigger rooms, and can have vertical sliding doors and glass edges that meet on three sides or in a corner.
A built-in stove is perfect for new builds or for space dividing an existing interior, with a false chimney constructed around it. Technically, built-in stoves could be fitted into an existing fireplace, but it would be an appreciable amount of work to retrofit it. Built-in stoves are typically larger than cassettes stoves, and are best suited to larger interior spaces; this range of stoves is particularly perfect for homes without a chimney, allowing you to construct a false chimney breast around the stove itself and change the dynamic of your room.
Many built-in stoves need to have chimney ventilation above and below the firebox which helps to keep the chimney cool and allows natural convection to occur. We are often asked the difference between a cassette stove and a built-in stove, at Fireplace Products we define a built-in stove as a stove that you place in situ and build a wall around it. This range of stoves can be installed into existing fireplaces but often a lot of building work is required to achieve this whereas cassette stoves can be usually be easily fitted into an existing fireplace opening with minimal building work required.
