Let's start the tour at the same place where the stoves and fireplaces start - the test lab. Here is where stoves are designed, tested and then tested again. In this picture is a moveable masonry fireplace that is used for insert testing. The yellow insulation in the background houses a "cold room" where the effects of frigid weather can be simulated to test how the stoves and vent systems react to extremes.

This page is part of the factory tour of a woodstove factory which makes Lopi, Avalon and FPX Wood Stoves, Pellet Stoves, Fireplaces and Hearth Products.
