It may be obvious that a firebox is subjected to wild extremes of temperature. In some stoves, those extremes, and the related expansion and contraction, can lead to premature fatigue, and even failure, of metal components.
But not in a Pacific Energy, our floating firebox system is legendary in the industry. Solidly designed with 304 grade stainless steel brick-support rails, it allows key parts to freely expand and contract, which reduces metal fatigue and adds years of life to the entire stove. The stainless steel baffle (part of the clean-burning secondary combustion system) the flame shield (which protects the stove top from intense heat) are all part of the floating firebox system.
It costs more to build a stove this way, but we feel it’s well worth it. It’s one of the reasons we’re confident in offering a lifetime warranty on every one of our stoves and inserts. And why our products don’t click, tick and ping when they heat and cool.
