The Austrian Kachelofen Association
This is a non-profit association, which on the one hand carries out research into Kachelofen (tile stoves) and also provides information for the general public about the findings and innovations. Membership in the Association is voluntary, and both stove builders and the supply industry are represented by the Association. The Association was founded in 1953 and its registered office has remained in Vienna ever since.
The bodies of the association are the General Assembly, the Managing Board and the Chairmanship. Furthermore, the Education Committee, the Technical Committee and the Advertising Committee meet on a regular basis.

What is the difference between the traditional Kachelofens, which are large and heavy, and a small Kachelofen? »

The design possibilities are almost endless with a tiled stove. Because it is a highly individual product, the stove builder can customise it to fulfil a customer’s every wish. The range includes classical and traditional designs, right up to extremely modern. Colours, shapes and proportions can be chosen freely.
Maintenance costs for a Kachelofen are comparatively low. For a Kachelofen which is in regular use, experts recommend having it serviced every three years by the stove builder.
