It is simple to install and does not require a traditional fireplace and chimney. The Open Fronted Wood Fire is constructed with a fully insulated firebox. This allows it to be installed as either a freestanding open fronted fire or into a masonry or non combustible construction. The steel firebox design delivers both radiant and convection heat. As the steel firebox builds up in heat air movement around the firebox generates convection heat. The fireplace grate assists in increased air flow delivering more heat whilst also having a removable ash pan for easy cleaning.
