Why Arco: the steatite and the well-being of radiant heating
Arco wood-burning and pellet stoves are one of the best and healthiest ways of heating a room. They are covered with a block of completely natural serpentine stone, which allows for an ideal accumulation and radiation of the heat.
Unlike other cladding materials, serpentine stone, also known as soapstone or steatite, easily absorbs heat, retains it and releases it gradually.
The heat radiation is effective in warming up and spreading evenly around any body exposed to it. It does not force the movement of air and dust in the room, but gives a pleasant feeling of natural warmth.
This special stone’s high specific weight, great storage capacity, resilience and immunity to fire, together with the innovative solutions to control combustion, have allowed Arco wood-burning and pellet stoves to achieve an excellent operating performance
