Electric Fires Information


If you are looking for a quick and simple solution to creating a focal point to your room then there are a wide choice available to select from inset, wall mounted or freestanding. All levels of budget can be catered for, from simple hang on the wall models, a wide variety of modern or traditional style inset models to fit within a fireplace or the stunningly realistic Opti-V range which uses the latest high definition tv technology to create flames & sparks for a virtual fireplace experience like no other.


Electric fires offer the convenience of a flame effect without using heat, are 100% efficient and need little aftercare or servicing. If you are limited by the lack of a flue or need gas connecting then electric offers a simple alternative. Most models offer up to 2kw output which is ideal for taking the chill off the room without having to put the central heating on.

Inset & Freestanding Fires


All inset models are designed to fit into a fireplace especially if a flue is being used. If no flue is available then options are either to knock into the wall cavity, create a space within the fireplace by altering the rebate within it or by fitting a spacer to the fire which are available for many models. A further alternative is to use a freestanding model which will sit against the back panel rather than inside it.

Wall Mounted Fires


Most models are designed to be the feature themselves usually fixed to the wall via a bracket screwed into the wall although theer are some that can be recessed into a wall/chimney breast. They can be accommodated into a fireplace though with a little modification of the style.

Electric Suites


Electric suites are usually made of wood and are made complete with the electric fire  already fixed in position making them a very simple installation, usually unwrap, place in desired location then plug in. There are a wide variety of colours and styles available and their ease of movement due to the comparative light weight means the rooms they can be used in are flexible.

Electric Stoves 


With stoves remaining very popular, its hardly surprising that the electric side of the market grows too. There are downsides to the installation of a multiflue or gas stove particularly in the cost but there are some fantastic pieces of kit out there now electric wise, to give the look of those two but with controllable ambience at minimal cost.

Opti-Myst Explained Here




Using state of the art technology, Opti-myst is the most realistic smoke & flame effect ever seen in an electric fire-an illusion so realistic it is difficult to distinguish it from the real thing. The fully 3 dimensional effect uses established ultrasonic technology adapted from commercial applications to create an ultra fine water mist that is illuminated to create the flames & smoke. This produces an effect that will surpass all expectations for realism in an electric fire.


A brand new addition to the range and available in two sizes, are drop in cassettes to help create the incredibly realistic look in a hole in the wall style fireplace of your choice. Ask for details.

 The Italia Collection


A stunning new selection of six electric suites by Katell featuring the Optimyst flame effect. This is the most realistic flame effect currently on the market, seeing is believing!


You can choose from a beautiful stone effect, natural oak finish or a subtle sandstone design to compliment your existing decor. There are also some brand new finishes to try, including contemporary terrano grey with its subtle hues or bold dijon walnut.



This unique and patented protected design combines ultra realistic flickering flames with three dimensional logs that sporadically spark! With the addition of an audio element of crackling logs, the illusion of a real fire is complete.


Available in two sizes,
