Budget won't stretch far enough?

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 guide to those available is here
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.
This is a selection of the most popular styles available.
Multiflue & Class 1 Inset Fires
This type of open fire is probably the most realistic look 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
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 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
Powerflue fires expel the combustion gases directly outside the building through the use of an electronically driven fan unit mounted on the external wall.
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.
