Zen Occhio Suspended Fireplace
HAND MADE BY SKILLED METAL CRAFTSMAN
Zen Suspended Fireplaces are designed to be the most elegant, functional and cost-effective suspended fireplaces in Australia.
Our suspended fireplaces are meticulously hand made by skilled metal craftsman and designed, tested and accredited in Australia to meet AS/NZS Standards for solid fuel burning appliances, we seamlessly manufacture our suspended fireplaces with precision, by moulding 5mm thick sheets of cold rolled steel to form our unique hanging fireplace designs.
Wherever you choose to suspend your Zen Occhio Suspended Fireplace, it will be visually in command of the room whilst simultaneously blending in. Our Zen Occhio Suspended Fireplace is handcrafted from 5mm cold rolled steel and is able to *rotate a full 360º. In a finish that is able to sustain heat up to 650ºc, you’ll be able to keep your living or outdoor spaces toasty for hours on end.
With an included 8mm fireplace grate, you can utilise the Zen Occhio Suspended Fireplace as a woodfire pizza oven. Enjoy authentically baked pizza’s and add that extra flair to your new fireplace.
The Zen Occhio Suspended Fireplace is required to have 900mm clearance off the side and back if installed next to a combustible wall (plaster board, timber) or combustible material.
If the surrounding walls are non combustible such as brick, concrete, tile, stone, metal or steel then clearance is at the discretion of the installer/owner. We still recommend a minimum clearance of 500mm.
Note: If the fireplace is to be positioned near glass, we are not responsible for any discolouration of the glass, breakage or damage to the window system that may occur due to increased temperature radiating off the fireplace. Toughened safety glass would be preferable in this application which can resist a temperature differential of 250c and is not recommended to be exposed to heat exceeding 270c. Please check with your individual window manufacturer/installer.
There needs to be 1500mm clearance from combustible materials to the front opening of the fireplace in every installation and 500mm clearance from your finished floor level.
A minimum 1315mm deep x 1315mm wide x 50mm thick floor protector (compressed board, stone, concrete, tile) should be used under and in front of the appliance base when installing the appliance above combustible flooring such as timber, laminate or carpet (see joint AS/NZS 2918:2018 3.3.2).
The floor protector should extend 300mm in front of the appliance door and be placed centrally in the 1315mm width. The Thermal resistivity of the floor protector (compressed board) is 0.08m².K/W for 6mm thick sheets.
If the floor is non combustible, tile, concrete or stone, no protector is necessary.
The Zen Occhio suspended fireplace installed with Appliance-Flue combination conforms to the requirements of the joint AS/NZS 2918:2018 Standard, Appendix B.
*The appliance can spin 360 degrees on its spigot. Therefore, if you plan to rotate the fireplace 360 degrees, 1500mm clearance needs to be maintained all the way around the fireplace from combustible walls or materials.
We recommend using a Registered Builder or a Qualified Solid Fuel Appliance Installer who is licensed to perform Mechanical Services Work to install your Zen Suspended Fireplace. Only persons registered and / or licensed in mechanical services are permitted to install a solid fuel heater. As each installation will be different it is difficult for us to estimate your installation cost. It is best to speak with your builder or installer and get an estimate for your particular circumstances.
We recommend using a registered and licensed installer found on the Australian Home Heating Association website.

- Is your ceiling flat or pitched, if pitched what is the angle degree?
- Is your roof flat or pitched?
- If your roof is pitched, what is the measurement from the top point of the roof to where the fireplace external flue termination will be located?
