What is Magma Stone Technology?


In this article, we explore our unique Magma Stone technology that we manufacture and install into each and every one of our Climastar Harmony Products.

What is Magma Stone?

The products in Climastar’s Harmony range are made from a manufactured product called Magma Stone. Magma Stone is based on two natural products, silicon and aluminium with no other agglutinants. It is created with heat and press, manufactured under 400kg/cm2 of pressure and then baked at 1200˚C.

Thanks to its properties, Magma Stone never deteriorates. Comparatively, Natural stone panels made of marble or granite can comb or break after some time when exposed to direct heat. This is because they have components which behave differently under exposure. Some of these internal components have more expansion and contraction degree than others.

Notably, marble and granite are not waterproof either. They absorb humidity and stains can easily appear.

Thus you can see the difference with Magma Stone, which retains its natural colour without fading, even when exposed to direct heat. Magma panels will look exactly the same after one, two or even three decades.

    What is Magma Stone Technology?

    So how do Harmony heaters actually work? The heaters use a combination of convected and radiant heat. This means your home will warm up faster and if you’ve set your temperature already, it will maintain this almost perfectly. No matter what the British weather throws at you.

    Each product in the Climastar Harmony range is built with two Magma Heat Batteries. The batteries are made by combining Aluminium and Silicon into a heat battery. These twin batteries are the key to keeping the room warm and comfortable. Additionally, the design and technology of the radiator will help you to reduce energy costs.

    By using heat when its necessary and reducing any wastage.

    The front heat battery is designed to store heat that is released by radiation into the room for longer periods. Essentially, it draws on very little power whilst doing this. The second Magma silicon battery is inside the heater. It accumulates the heat released by the heating element stabilising the room temperature. Which also makes this element less time connected to the mains supply.

    Furthermore, there is a front panel which is built with a double core heat conduction chamber. The double core is creating certain interferences to the convention air, so that heat can be much more easily absorbed by the stone. A totally flat panel will increase the convection with an effect like a chimney.

    So, the double core helps to reduce the heat going to the top part of the room and increases the radiation.

    With some German designs, heaters have fluting, which creates a way for energy to escape. Hence it is wasted. However, the front panel on a Harmony heater allows the heat to transfer into the room in a totally uniformed way. So, you are getting the maximum amount of heat in your room with no wastage.

    Ultimately, thanks to Magma Stone technology, you can get the best heat transfer for longer, so your room stays warm throughout. The technology keeps the room temperature stable to within 0.1˚C. As an extra and important incentive, you are also reducing your carbon footprint by using an electric radiator.

    What Are The Benefits to Magma Stone Technology?

    By choosing a Harmony heating system, you are getting many benefits thanks to its Magma Stone technology. To begin with, you are guaranteed a lifetime Manufacturer’s Warranty. This is due to the Magma Core which is built into all Harmony products.

    Secondly, due to the very nature of electric heating, you are reducing your carbon footprint because your heating system is not emitting any gases or fumes. Every gas home heating system has a flue which takes the gas out of the house and releases it into the atmosphere. You don’t have to think about this at all with electric heating.

    Thirdly, the Silicon batteries are built within the heaters, so you don’t need any extra pipes or installations inside your home. You simply plug in your Harmony heater and set your controls.
    Then sit back and relax in a lovely, warm room.

    As well as this, the entire Harmony range can function with renewable energy sources like the sun or wind. Currently, our electricity is generated partly by using gas.

    However, this will change in the future. If you combine your electric heaters with renewable energy sources, they you can reduce your carbon footprint even further. You will gain peace of mind knowing that heating your home is not contributing to global warming.

    What Makes The Harmony Range Unique?

    Have you seen what a modern radiator can look like? It’s time to forget the traditional image of heating your home with steel radiators hung from the wall. Or with night storage electric heaters dragged out from the cupboard and programmed to work the next day.

    Perhaps you have older radiators in your home that are rusting or need bleeding regularly. Maybe there are cold spots in your rooms where the heat is not reaching the space.

    Alternatively, you can choose a brand new, beautiful and modern electric heater from Climastar’s Harmony range. Yes, a radiator can be beautiful. For example, the design of the radiators within the Harmony range are specifically made to look stylish within your home and can even match your decor. Your guests won’t even know it’s a radiator.

    As well as this, it will also save you energy without you lifting a finger.

    Furthermore, you can now enjoy complete control of your heating costs by using smart home technology, which the Harmony product range links into. Basically, the Harmony heating system is an intelligent system that adapts and learns from your lifestyle as you use it.

    So, you can select the temperature you want and the system will learn at what time to draw energy. Then, it will deliver that temperature at the exact time you require it.

    This works alongside open window technology. Again, you need wifi to enable this. If there is a sharp change in temperature suddenly, such as a window or door opening, your intelligent Harmony heating system will recognise it. Then, the heating will go into standby mode.

    When the window is closed again, the heating will resume. Therefore, you are not losing any heat from the open door. The harmony heater is programmed to understand the difference between a normal temperature change and a sudden temperature drop of 3˚C or more.

    With this in mind, there has never been a better time to switch your heating to sustainable and energy saving electric heating. Not only is it vital to make changes on environmental grounds, but you can also do this by upgrading to a stylish and more efficient heating system.

    Now’s your opportunity to get rid of those old white rusty steel radiators through your home and replace them with a Harmony electric heating system.

Electric radiators give you huge levels of versatility and control in your home so the radiators come on as and when you need them to.

    Other heating systems, such as night storage heaters, just don’t have the same versatility. If you remember night storage heaters, you had to turn them on the day before to get them to work for the next day. Then, if it’s a cold day the heating will come on no matter what.

    Equally, if it’s a warm day, the heating will still come on. The homeowner has virtually no control apart from an on and off switch.

    In comparison; with Climastar heating products, you are now in control of your heating every day.

    Why Switch To Harmony Electric Heating Solutions

    In summary, electric heating is better for the environment, easy to install and virtually maintenance free. With smart technology, you can programme each Harmony heating radiator individually, adjusting the temperature room by room depending on your needs.

    With an electric Harmony heating system, you won’t need a boiler. You don’t need to think about annual maintenance check ups or the risks of having a gas installation inside your house. Furthermore, you won’t have a boiler to release any pollutants into the atmosphere.

    With electric heating, you can plug it in, adjust your controls and enjoy a warm home quickly.

    In comparison to traditional radiators, you can event improve the overall look and decor of your home by choosing a radiator from the Harmony range. No more steel radiators hanging on the wall. Instead, you can choose from a unique and beautiful range, made with natural Magma Stone.

    As well as this, Harmony heating products can be used with renewable energy resources. More and more electric power is now being generated from renewable resources. Hence, more homes and organisations are investing in generating their own electricity.

    The UK has a target of being Carbon Neutral by 2050. In order to achieve this milestone, fossil fuels are being phased out in favour of more sustainable energy sources like green electricity. In fact, the UK government has a plan to ban gas boilers in new build properties from 2023. Therefore, now is a wise time to start thinking about how you will switch over to electricity in your home.

    Generally speaking, most of us have used gas or oil to heat our homes in the past. But times are changing and we need to start thinking greener. Electric heating has been around for a long time, but the way electricity was produced was also damaging to the planet.

    However, this is now evolving too, thanks to renewable energy resources. It’s worth considering that renewable electricity is now forecast to provide over 50% of our demand by 2030. Therefore, the fuel of the future is electricity.
