About The AlbieCore™ + AlbieCoreS’More™
Maine Wood Heat’s patented partial (other materials are needed to complete the heater) masonry heater core system is designed by Albie Barden and fabricated at our headquarters in Central Maine, USA. Albie based his core on the enduring Finnish Contraflow design, adapting it to American standards with serviceability in mind. We cast and prep the cores to order with about a two week lead time.
The cores are a great foundation from which to create a unique heater for your home. Select a veneer style and material of your choice and layout possibilities can include heated benches, a bake oven, wood storage area, see-through fireboxes, masonry chimneys or top exit Class A chimneys.
Available in standard and extended depth (the AlbieCoreS’More™) versions, the AlbieCore™ offers performance flexibility to fit a variety of installation and heating requirements.
