Wood is a valuable source of energy. The ‘Natural Power? – Yes please’ initiative by SCHOTT ROBAX® supports the sustainable use of this renewable raw material.
The use of our glass-ceramic windows doubles the efficiency of a glazed heating device when burning wood compared to open stoves. This means SCHOTT ROBAX® products can help reduce the amount of wood needed for heating. The ‘saved’ wood remains in the forest, where it stores CO2 for many years and contributes towards climate protection.
SCHOTT ROBAX® would like to inspire other companies, partners and users to use wood sustainably. The aim is to provide information about conserving resources through the use of wood and to increase awareness of the importance of this valuable raw material for securing our energy supply. Is energy renewable? Can the forest look after itself? And what is the benefit of fire burning behind a panel?

Heating in Harmony with Nature
The decision to heat your home with a fireplace or stove offers the perfect combination of aesthetics and common sense. In addition to enjoying the cozy warmth and the fascinating flickering of the flames, you have the certainty that you are helping to protect the environment.
Anyone who decides to use a fire to meet at least part of their household heating needs can choose from a wide range of fireplace inserts, wood-burning stoves or tiled stoves. Because they have a door to the fire box, these are referred to as “enclosed” fires. Heat-resistant SCHOTT ROBAX® glass-ceramic panels give you the perfect view of the flickering flames. In terms of emissions, enclosed fireplaces are far superior to the open versions.
Efficient Energy Sources
If you have a fireplace or wood-burning stove, you are helping to protect the environment and prevent climate change. Everyone must take action to slow down the global warming caused by carbon dioxide (CO2) and to find alternative energy sources to oil and gas which are fast running out.
Fireplaces and stoves represent a traditional solution to a modern problem. Whether you choose logs, pellets or briquettes, wood is the ideal renewable fuel. It is available in almost unlimited quantities and is completely carbon-neutral. Because of their high energy density, lignite briquettes are also an efficient and environmentally compatible option. Whichever type of fuel you use, it’s a comforting feeling when there are so many good reasons for heating your home with a fireplace or stove.
