Heating with wood has worked well for thousands of years, and the Drolet Escape Wood Stove shows us that there's no reason to turn our back on tradition. This high-efficiency stove features a cast-iron body with a refractory brick-lined firebox that helps evenly distribute up to 75,000 BTUs of wood-fired heat. The low-clearance adds safety and the clear glass window lets you enjoy the look of the fire while you take advantage of the heat that it provides. This pedestal-style stove features an East-West loader and comes with a stainless-steel secondary-air system that improves gas combustion. The manufacturer recommends a chimney of at least six inches in diameter.
To ensure the safety of the exhaust system, it is recommended that you use a professional installer.
A lot has changed since Francoise-Xavier Drolet opened his modest mechanical shop in 1875. The shop has grown, and the company has been passed down through the members of the Drolet family. In today's modern Canada, the name Drolet is still a synonym of quality and is used as a signature trademark for elevators, sewage and city waterworks products. In 1970, a combustion stove division was added with the goal of providing the finest environmentally sustainable heating solutions on the market. Their passion for everything they do shows in their attitude towards their employees, respect for the customers and a level of commercial ethics and industrial creativity that keep them at the top of their industry.
