The Jøtul F 263 S soapstone wood burner is part of the F260 series which consists of two types. These are convection wood stoves that are well suited for installation against combustible material. Convection is achieved through an extra outer wall which allows for circulation of air between the combustion chamber and the outer walls. In this way, the temperature on the outside of the stove is reduced. Jøtul F263 S has large side glasses and panels of soapstone integrated in the design of the wood stove. The soapstone wood burner retains heat while the wood stove is in use and releases the heat slowly even after the fire is out. The combination of heat retaining and a small but efficient combustion chamber makes it very suitable for modern living with a reduced need for heating. At the same time, it is strong enough to heat your home during the coldest days of the winter. You can add an optional companion set behind the door on the base.
