ECan and MfE approved. Clean and simple!

ULEB is an acronym for ‘Ultra Low Emission Burner’. Put simply, they are some of the cleanest solid fuel burners on the market with incredibly low particulate discharge. ULEBs are tested using real life operating conditions of Canterbury Method (CM1). ULEBs must meet the Environment Canterbury milligram per megajoule standards as well as MfE’s National Environmental Standards (NES).

The Metro Ultra fires are the first New Zealand made and approved, single chamber, ultra-low emission wood burners. Meeting the ultra-low requirements of the CM1 test through incredibly low emissions even during the start-up phase using real life fuel. Compliance with both CM1 and MfE NES allows these fires to be installed anywhere in New Zealand including new homes in the Canterbury and Nelson regions.

The Ultra fires innovative design promises to revolutionise the home wood-fire scene, especially in areas where night-time air pollution can be a problem, like Christchurch, Timaru and Nelson. These models meet the ECan ultra-low standards from the time they start to when the temperature starts to fall as the fire reduces to embers.
