Having dealt with fire for so long, we have learned not only its power, but also its capricious, changeable nature. Everyone can make a fire in the hearth, but it is almost an art to control and subdue it. We are guided by two principles when developing and manufacturing our products. First, they should be simple and stylish. Second, they must be made of the best materials. Externally, the product looks restrained and noble, in operation it is durable, reliable, simple.
Behind this simple formula is all our many years of experience, as well as the use of modern technologies and materials.

During the existence of the company Kastor has accumulated experience and made many discoveries in creating the optimal design of the furnace. Thus, the principle of Coanda is involved in the operation of Kastor wood stoves.
In practice, this is a specially designed furnace that converts the operation mode of the heater, as it were, into the second phase after the active Gorenje in the furnace has stopped.
The convection of hot air through the heater stops and this allows the heated stones to retain heat longer. The optimal design of the furnace was appreciated by numerous copyists and followers. The design of the Kastor furnace is replicated by many plagiarizing firms in the CIS. We can safely conclude that in one form or another, the discoveries of Kastor-ashiroko are represented in the many-sided bath tradition .
