Focus fireplaces are made in France and a number of them are highly energy-efficient. The younger sibling of the Gyrofocus, the Domofocus is smaller but has a noticeably larger hearth opening. This suspended, centrally positioned fireplace pivots 360°. The interior fireplace can be finished in matt black or white and the outdoor fireplaces in rust or black anti-corrosion paint.
Heating by burning wood is, along with solar heating, among the least polluting for the planet. Wood is a renewable energy source because it can be replenished relatively rapidly, especially in contrast to fossil fuels. All the wood-burning models have undergone extensive testing in European testing laboratories to provide real performance indicators (nominal heat output, efficiency, level of CO, etc.) for each model. Fireplaces that have a thermal efficiency equal to or more than 70% may be eligible for a tax credit in certain countries.

Ecology and Environment
Focus is a member of the Union of Renewable Energy (SER: Syndicat des Energies Renouvelables) and an active member of the French Flamme Verte environmental performance label: beyond certifying the performance of fires purely in terms of efficiency and heat output, this label guarantees environmental performance and the protection of air quality.
