Asgard Outdoor Woodburner
The Burner King, a dedicated wood burner from Asgard, is the latest British designed and made product from our West Yorkshire manufacturing plant. We took a retrospective look at the outdoor stove as our 1st few customers took delivery…
Why did Asgard design a dedicated Outside Wood Burner?
“Asgard has a great reputation for making rock-solid, super secure sheds, our cutting edge machinery can make pretty much anything out of metal. Our customers kept sending us these amazing pictures of their new Asgard sheds in the garden, and we lost count of how many times these pictures had wood burners or chimineas in the background… so, we had a light bulb moment!” - Basil King, Asgard Product Development
Our sister company, Flexiform Business Furniture (designers and manufacturers of Office Furniture), make storage cabinets and office lockers, often with vision panels (glass doors) which are not too dissimilar in design to a wood burner. So, with Asgard's great reputation for build quality and Flexiform’s experience, it seemed to be the next logical step.
How did we design the Asgard Woodburner?
Our Head of Product Development (Basil King) came to the rescue, Basil has been working with metalwork for decades, so he really knows his stuff when it comes to cutting and bending metal sheets. The design is deceptively simple on the outside, it looks like a big box!
Inside is a different story, an angled (fully ventilated) baffle system is in place. This ingenious design absorbs the direct heat from the flame/ heat source, and dispersers it around the woodburner, giving 360 degrees of heat. Perfect for sitting out late into those summer evenings.
Why is the Buner so heavy?
Yes, 75kg is heavy – it’s because the Burner King is made of heavy-duty steel, this is not a flimsy supermarket-bought outdoor stove that will be used once and thrown away, it’s a (semi) permanent piece of garden furniture. We also include ground bolts, so you can bolt it to your patio to help to prevent theft.
How is the woodburner delivered?
The Woodburner is delivered a little differently to our normal sheds, each woodburner is wrapped and delivered on a palette - so your 1st burn is free, simply break up the delivery palette!
What can I burn on the woodburner? Can I burn garden rubbish?
The Asgard woodburner should only be used to burn Chiminea logs or dry logs – anything else can result in damage or uncontrollable heat, certainly never use accelerants such as petrol or lighter fluid. This is not a garden incinerator so general rubbish should not be burnt.
