About Us

There's nothing quite like the immediate warmth and comfort of a Kinder gas fire

Kinder gas fires and fireplaces are designed to suit your lifestyle with a combination of appealing looks, outstanding warmth and practical attention to detail - Kinder designs gas fires for all tastes from traditional to contemporary and including many models available as balanced flue.

All our fires feature a Flame Supervision Device (FSD) and all conventional flue models feature an Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) for maximum safety. The ODS is a device which shuts off the gas supply to the main burner in the unlikely event of a fault. The FSD is a device which detects the presence of a flame, and in the absence of that flame prevents uncontrolled release of gas to the burner.

Kinder fires are built to last in our state-of-the-art UK manufacturing facility, where are quality standards meet the stringent demands of ISO 9001/2000. That's why we provide a 15 Year Guarantee with all our gas fires.

BFM Europe Limited guarantees your Kinder gas fire for fifteen years against manufacturing and material defects, including parts and labour, subject to annual service and annual replacement of the oxy-pilot assembly, from the date of purchase.

BFM Europe Ltd. has always had a reputation as a manufacturer of some of the most efficient fires on the market. See the full range of high efficiency gas fires from Kinder, Verine, Global, Flavel, Kohlangaz & The Collection by Michael Miller.

Now we have set new industry standards with the introduction of our high efficiency "HE" and "Plus" ranges of products: exceptional heat output combined with lower running costs compared to standard gas fires.

Our Research and Development team has invested in developing the technology to meet the key objectives of producing gas fires that save energy and as a result help to keep costs down. See our full range of high efficiency gas fires on our brand websites.


All our gas fires are independently tested, approved and verified by the British Standards Institution (BSI).

The BSI is an independent organisation. They are not owned by the government, industry or shareholders, which means that they can be totally objective with regards testing and certification. This gives their assessments more authority than those of an organization that has a vested interest in promoting its members.

They have some of the most experienced and knowledgeable staff in the world and are recognised internationally for their technical expertise, quality services and in-depth knowledge of gas, electrical, oil and solid fuel product testing
and certification.

The wide-ranging capability of their testing facilities and the broad expertise and knowledge of their testing and certification staff ensures our products are rigorously tested with the utmost integrity.


BFM Europe, as a responsible manufacturer of space heating products are committed to producing products of the highest quality, performance and energy efficiency and as such we fully embrace such initiatives as the Eco design directive Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1188, which serve to better inform the customer of energy efficiency related information across all product sectors in our industry. Please be assured we have been continuously developing our extensive brand portfolio of products to meet the stringent requirements of these regulations and therefore we will continue to be in a position to provide customers with a market leading range of gas products.
