Gas Fires

Gas Fires Information

 

Having established the type of flue you have or not got, then you can work out the style of fire and/or fireplace you can have. 

Class1  Any style of fire, any fireplace restricted only by width of chimney breast

Class 2 Some styles of fire, most fireplaces restricted by height of chamber and  width of chimney breast.

Precast Slimline (multiflue) fire, No hole in the walls, most fireplaces restricted by height of chamber and width of chimney breast. Some precasts are within the cavity so appear to be flat walls.

No Chimney No standard inset fires or hole in the wall style. Most styles of fireplace.

If you are unsure about your flue then go to our technical section

 

There are several different types of ignition for gas fires. To find

the most suitable for you then a link to a guide to those available is below.

Further choices are the type of fuel bed requires, typically coals, pebbles, driftwood or logs.

Finally the outside of the fire is dressed in a trim & fret. Although

they are flexible to a point, it should be noted most are designed

to fit their own brands & aren't usually interchangable.

Love the look but got a precast flue?

Been told you can't have this style?

Budget won't stretch far enough?

Well not anymore....

Class 1 & Multiflue Inset Fires
 

Class 1 & Multiflue Inset Fires 

 

This type of open fire is probably the most realistic looking but can lack in efficiency as heat is lost up the flue. Newer models are now pushing this level up to around 74% though. Slimline (multiflue) fires are shallower in depth to suit precast flues but will fit in all types whereby a class 1 full depth fire is designed for a brick chimney and is ethetically more pleasing on the eye due to its size.

HE Glass Fronted Inset Fires

HE Glass Fronted Inset Fires

This type of high efficiency fire has a glass panel across the front of the fire which radiates the heat generated from the fuel bed directly into the room.

The glass panel concentrates the radiant heat so that more heat is forced into the room and less is lost through the chimney. Combined with convected heat which is produced by cool air drawn into the base of the fire, through the heat exchanger and then emitted as warm air though the gap above the canopy this makes glass fronted HE’s the most efficient conventional flue fires available.

Balanced Flue Inset Fires

Balanced Flue Inset Fires

 

Balanced flue fires are designed for those who want all the benefits of a gas fire but don’t have a built in chimney or flue in their home. A balanced flue fire is glass fronted & comes with its own flue terminal which is vented directly through an outside wall.

 

Power Flue Inset Fires

Flueless Fires

 

Power Flue Inset Fires

 

Powerflue fires expel the combustion gases directly outside the building through the use of an electronically driven fan unit mounted on the external wall.

They offer the desirable open real fire look for those that have no chimney breast although the sound of the fan can sometimes be off putting to some.

Flueless Inset Fires

A flueless gas fire can be fitted in minutes rather than hours so is a simple and problem free operation. Perfect for fitting on an internal wall rather than in a chimney breast, they offer a simple solution to heat and top (100%) efficiency.

Hole in the Wall Fires 

 

There area host of different styles available but you need a class 1 chimney. From a simple 4 sided inset model to a high output/efficiency  glass fronted version that can be complimented with marble trims or set inside a complete fireplace suite, we have them all. Alternatively, if your budget is a little more restictive, we can make a hole in the wall for you out of the marble of your choice and install either a electric or gas fire to suit.

Hole in the Wall Fires - Class 1 Flue

Hole in the Wall - Balanced Flue

Balanced flue fires offer the style and heat output associated with class 1 versions but with an increased efficiency even though they dont vent through a chimney breast. Some will come as a trimless option with choices of trims as an optional extra but we would recommend having a trim of some description, preferably out of stone or slate as the heat generated from these fires can cause your plaster to crack around the fire.

Outset living flame effect fires offer the traditional styling coupled with a realistic looking flame pattern with excellent heat output and efficiency

Basket Fires

Gas Stoves

Cast Inserts

Basket Fires

Fire baskets are an eye catching addition to any fireplace with options for solid fuel & electric as well as gas. In most scenarios, it will be necessary to fit a chamber, slip set and back panel along with a fireplace. Please note a Class 1 flue is required for all of these types of fires. 

Gas Stoves

If you are looking for the look of a real fire but prefer the instant controllable heat, then there are a selection of gas stoves available, which can be complimented in exactly the same way as a multifuel stove, on a hearth or with a wide style of inglenook fireplaces.

Cast Inserts

A cast iron insert is a decorative plate with complimentary front bars that incorporates a fire and comes in the form of an arched insert or a tiled insert. Many have the opportunity to burn several types of fuel

such as wood, coal, gas or electric.
