The canal boat stove was designed from the outset with this type of installation in mind and conforms to the construction and performance requirements of BS EN 13240. It also incorporates the necessary features to ensure that all the requirements of the British Standard code of practice BS 8511:2010 can be met when it is installed in a small craft.
Code of practice for the installation of solid fuel heating and cooking appliances in small craft
This British Standard code of practice was published by BSi in Feb 2010 and came into effect in Feb 2011. The code covers appliance selection, design considerations, installation requirements (including chimney arrangements), inspection and testing, and necessary safety information concerning maintenance and the safe use of solid fuel appliances on boats.
The Solid Fuel Technology Institute (Soliftech) have produced some simple guidance which describes what installing to the new BSi code means in practiceClick here for Canal Boat Stove Guidance PDF
