Rika Integra 11 (Austroflamm)

The Rika Integra 11, still in production from the days when it used to be called the Austroflamm Integra, is a very popular high output stove with bay window styling and a choice of accent colours. It produces up to 42,000 btu. per hour and can heat an area of 2,500 square feet and has an automatic hourly cleaning cycle.

The Rika Integra has programmable control with different settings possible for every day of the week. This function is also available on the optional wall thermostat.

This is a very high quality pellet stove, with a stainless steel heat exchanger and cast iron firebox back plates. The motors run on ball bearings for quiet operation.

The Integra has an automatic cleaning cycle that is factory set to happen every hour. The self cleaning frequency can be adjusted by the owner to accommodate different standards of fuel quality.

There is also the option of text message control.
