We started our year off visiting Asolo, Italy to see the Piazzetta factory. Two of our team members were lucky enough to experience this world class factory and gain a vast amount of knowledge to bring back home with them.

If you aren’t familiar with the brand Piazzetta, then you have been missing out. This brand is all about:

  • sustainable energy.
  • Efficiency (Up to 92%)
  • Automation
  • Superior view on installation
  • Quality

Any help to prevent further global warming is a step in the right direction. Calore is driven to further their technology and knowledge in this field.



Our team was fortunate enough to be able to tour the entire Piazzetta factory and they saw first-hand how each unit is manufactured.

We were impressed by the care and attention to detail that went into the manufacturing of each unit. The ceramic panels manufacturing process is a painstaking and time consuming one and Piazzetta pride themselves in being the best at what they do. Calore prides itself in the ever-growing pellet technology that is more efficient and works extremely well for sustainable heating. The wood pellets that are used are made from pine, which is a by-product of the furniture industry – NO TREES ARE CUT DOWN TO MAKE WOOD PELLETS.

  1. It’s more easily stored (sealed bags of 15kg)
  2. Guarantees the most efficient burn (wood pellets are always dry and carry a moisture content of less than 12 %)
  3. Pellet units are automated – meaning you don’t have to get up and feed the fire all the time
  4. Has different speed settings for when more or less heat is required
  5. Comes in a variety of modern colours, and also ceramic surround finishes

The design & installation of the flue system, is just as important as the unit itself, as it directly effects the performance, and therefore efficiency of your Wood or Pellet fireplace.

We learnt a great deal about serving your Wood or Pellet stove (which should be done annually) and the increased range and new technological improvements.
