Welcome natural warmth and comfort into your home with Metro Fires

Keeping warm is a basic need that we all share, and the ambience, natural warmth and comfort of a flickering fire is the perfect way to keep your home warm, dry and healthy.

Metro fires was born in rural Taranaki back in the mid-90’s, by Peter Butler working from the garage of the family home.

Peter saw an opportunity to develop a range of stylish, well-built, high performing wood fires which would set the market on fire. Development of the very first Metro proved to be a success and quickly the brand started to grow. Instant demand set in, allowing the range to rapidly expand from a single model to the 27 models that are featured in this years range.

Metro, as a company, continues to grow and build on Peter’s legacy with the same passion, drive and ethics. We are dedicated wood fire specialists and pride ourselves on using the highest quality materials, workmanship and the very latest manufacturing techniques. We are also proud to support local industry and New Zealand’s future by continuing to design and manufacture our wood fires right here in New Zealand.

Our continued focus on research and development, coupled with our product design & innovation saw us acknowledged at New Zealand’s BEST Awards where we received the Sustainable Product Design & Consumer Awards. Receiving these awards reinforces our commitment to deliver quality NZ made wood fires to Kiwi homes providing many years of warmth and service.

While we specialise in wood fire development, we also provide the complete home heating solution with our extensive range of complimentary heating products. From our unique Metro ECO flue systems, wetbacks and heat transfer systems, to our range of floor protectors (hearths), child guards and heating accessories.

Welcome natural warmth and comfort into your home. Thank you for choosing Metro fires.
