Soapstone: efficient beauty

Since 1893 Norsk Kleber has produced a special brand of masonry heaters: wood stoves build throughout of soapstone, without the use of a steel firebox. Such a soapstone stove is not just a woodstove, but an exclusive piece of furniture taken directly from nature. Each stone has a different structure and pattern, and no two stoves are the same. Our soapstone is grey with a light structure. Our soapstone wood heaters are a warming piece of art that will last for generations.

Our Stoves in Action 

This video is captured by our esteemed cooperation partner Lorflam in France. You’re seeing the thermal video of the Babina stove. The stove, fired up from cold with approximately 3 kg of wood logs in an ambient temperature as low as 15 degrees Celsius, gradually warms up, emitting a steady flow of radiant heat throughout the entire 8-hour recording. As the stones heat up, their temperature, measured in real-time, is displayed on the scale to the right, providing a visual representation of the stove’s impressive performance.
