It is a wood fire. Le Dérivé forms a case that protects more than a chimney and the vision of fire, in addition to heat radiation, dissuades from any direct contact.
Its shape (cube), its dimensions (60 cm side) and its weight (85 Kg) make it the most stable brazier on the market. No risk of tilting or pouring embers.
The ashtray and its support prevent excessive heat under the appliance. The temperature never rises above 35 ° C.
The design of the firebox guarantees protection against flames or embers. Except under a winter mistral, you can use Le Dérivé in any weather.
Due to the intrinsic heat of Le Dérivé in operation, the guests will encounter very little the disadvantages of the wind directing the smoke that one undergoes with a classic brazier or a BBQ. In any event, if the wind is strong, the pleasure of the outside is limited …
If there is a “storm” during the evening, you can always pour water to put out the fire. The material of the Derivative allows it.
Also for security reasons, a key element of the design for the brand, there is no fixed handle on the Derivative to avoid any reflex gesture of opening with bare hands. A removable handle is provided.
An ember stainless steel grill: Le Dérivé is delivered with its 8mm thick corten ember grill. In use, it will tend to deform, requiring it to be turned over once or twice a year. The optional grill is made of 316L stainless steel, 10 mm thick, therefore extremely solid.
On the other hand, stainless steel is less conductive of heat and has an effect (minimal) on the diffusion upwards of this same heat.
A corten cover: This option is offered if you do not have a suitable cover with a side of 60 cm. It is, in fact, preferable if not necessary to cover the Derivative when it is not used in the event of rain. Ashes tend to lump under the effect of water.
The ashtray is corten. So if you’ve emptied it out of the ashes, you won’t need a lid.
An agitator: It is a metal rod with a claw at its end. By sliding it between the bars of Le Dérivé, you can move or group the logs to concentrate or reduce the fire as desired.
A emblazoned handle: Like the agitator, it comes from the BRASECUE brand. This optional handle is entirely metallic and therefore extremely solid.
A service crate: This is a wooden packaging crate made in the carpenter tradition which, once the delivery has been made, will serve as an aesthetic service. It has its handle to be able to move it or place it on Le Dérivé (Cold of course), when you are not using it during your absences.
It is designed to be stable, always in the safety spirit of the brand, and therefore weighs a lot.
Ironworker’s gloves: These are gloves that go up the forearm used to load wood. Without being essential, they are recommended for the evenings of your teenagers, whose insurance we know …
Pre-oxidation: Corten is a slightly shiny blue gray steel.
After several weeks, it oxidizes on the surface, taking on its final rust appearance.
However, during this oxidation period, your Dérivé presents several shades while evolving. Pre-oxidation saves you this aesthetic expectation.
Yes. Whether at the edge of a swimming pool, on a terrace or in the garden, Le Dérivé will bring you its warmth and conviviality.
The design of the ashtray and its support and the height of the feet provide insulation limiting the temperature under the appliance to less than 35 ° C. No risk of overheating the floor.
It is advisable for wooden terraces, to provide a separate surface, resistant to embers, like some ceramic tiles. Indeed, when loading into logs, it may happen that embers are crushed outwards, with the possibility of marking wood or composite on the terrace.
The visual appeal of the fire exists as soon as it is ignited, especially if you put on enough small wood to enjoy bright flames. For cooking and radiant heat, half an hour of sustained heating is enough, before the arrival of your guests
Absolutely. You can sear or cook gently, to your choice, according to the dishes offered, by loading more or less wood or by their arrangement on the grill. It’s big enough for that. For liquid dishes such as an omelet, for example, you will use the oven frit or any other metal dish.
That’s exactly what I mean. Due to its design of the grates and its dimensions, you can add wood at any time, without risking to burn the food and without having to move the grid, since it has a loading door.
Apart from the intense fire, as at St John’s day, which in any case forbids any cooking, the campfire Le Dérivé diffuses its heat in a homogeneous way. This avoids a point heat concentration. Its design allows to approach with the feeling of this diffusion without suffering the bite of a fire like from a chimney or a BBQ.
There is no need for a vacuum cleaner or a shovel to remove the ashes, since the campfire Le Dérivé has an ashtray that is emptied only 5 to 6 uses (Simpler than a chimney). The campfire Le Dérivé can be cleaned with water spray or sponge, as you wish. You can even use a high pressure cleaner because of its strength.
