A number of bioethanol fireplace manufacturers, based in both Europe and China, have invested in the technology that is required to develop Remote Control Bioethanol Fire Burners. Companies like Planika in Poland and DecoFlame in Denmark have developed a range of quality bioethanol products which can be operated using a remote control system. These modern bioethanol burners take the very basic concept of the burner to a new level with technology which includes safety features and unique flame control systems. Some of these remote control burners can also be integrated into a Smart Home system. The current remote control bio ethanol fireplaces are mainly designed around long ribbon style burner inserts with flame width sizes available up to 2000mm (2m) long. These remote control ethanol burners are not designed to be cheap, there is a cost increase associated with the higher specification therefore expect to pay 10x or more for a remote burner when compared to a basic manual version.
Check out the Planika Bioethanol fireplace designs that includes the Planika PrimeFire remote burners and also the Planika PureFlame TV Box which has been developed to allow a TV to be mounted above the fireplace.
Remote Control Bio Ethanol Fire Burners Explained
The basic concept is the same as a normal bioethanol burner, there is fuel, this is lit and a flame appears. But there is a lot of actual technology behind how remote bioethanol burners work.
The fuel is stored in a tank under the burner and they can store a lot more bioethanol fuel in the tank reducing the need to keep refilling. These bio fires also normally include safety features and safety sensors that do not exist on a manual bio burner.
When the handset is used to start the remote fire an electronic pump carries the fuel from the storage tank injects the fuel into a long burner tube. There is an electronic spark system which then ignites the fuel and the flame appears. When the remote fire is shut down the pump stops and the flame goes out. From what I know there is no way to adjust flame height but no doubt someone will be working on introducing this in the future.
Buy Remote Control Bioethanol Burners
There are only a small number of suppliers who make remote control bioethanol burners. As they involve electronics and safety features they are not as cheap as the mass produced manual style burners. See the examples below, available in sizes up to 2m wide, click on the link for more details and to buy. Also check out the range of Planika PrimeFire remote control bioethanol burners.
Buy a Complete Remote Bioethanol Fireplace or Just a Burner?
Some companies sell just the remote control bioethanol burner tray. This must then be used in a fireplace opening that is designed by either the manufacturer of the burner tray or as a complete system of burner and enclosure.
Some of the remote bioethanol burners on the market are sold as a standard products but there are other companies who will offer a full bespoke design service working with an architect and installer to provide a custom made, one off, fireplace.

In some locations, if designed correctly, they can be used outdoors, but mainly these are large contemporary fires that are best suited to large rooms or commercial properties like a hotel lobby.
