RB73 Fennek 80 Outdoor Fire
This fireplace was designed by the well-known Dutch designer Roderick Vos. Vos means Fox in Dutch, and Fennek is a type of fox. Roderick has opted for clean sight lines where you can clearly see the 3mm plate thickness everywhere.
The models are also modularly designed. The side panels of the Fennek 80 are the same panels as the Fennek 50. And they have the same legs.
This time we chose to make the flue draining. There is a 20 cm stump on the stove where the pipe falls over, this way no water can get into the stove.
The legs are fitted with large robust cap nuts and a stainless steel bolt is screwed in there so that the fireplace is free from the ground and there are no rust marks on the terrace.
The door handle is integrated in the right-hand strip of the door. We have made an extra recess in the grappling hook, this can be used to open the door a little bit and then secure it.
This position is ideal when starting the fire.
The side panels are hooked into the stove and pressed down considerably, making them very stuck. But they can always be released later by pushing them up again.
Furthermore, the side panels are provided with air gaps so that air can enter the combustion chamber in front of the glass, this ensures clean windows.
Furthermore, both have a deep firing bottom, made with the well-known refractory concrete. For the flue we used the same CorTen steel pipes that are known from the Quaruba series.
The lower pipe is again provided with an adjustable valve so that the flame image can be regulated somewhat. Roderick did come up with a new rain hood that fits very well with the design of the stove.
This can also be retrofitted as an option with a spark catcher (the same as we use with the Quaruba).
Note: Supplied unrusted.
