The Heat & Glo® Solaris: A Completely New Concept in Fireplaces
Featuring unique levitating “infinity flame,” Solaris is latest innovation from industry leader
Lakeville, Minn. — Jan. 16, 2013 — Heat & Glo®, the leader in fireplace design and technology, is changing perceptions about the traditional role of fireplaces in the home with the new Heat & Glo Solaris, which features unparalleled artistic design and flame performance.
Recently named one of the year’s 100 Best Products by Professional Builder magazine, the Solaris is the world’s slimmest circular fireplace, which can be installed on almost any wall thanks to specialized venting and a very shallow depth. Featuring the exclusive Heat & Glo transparent Razor™ burner technology, LED lighting and mirrored glass create the illusion of countless flames moving into infinity, viewable from both sides of the fireplace.
“The Solaris is one of the most awe-inspiring fireplaces on the market today,” said Becky Scribner, brand director for Heat & Glo. “When it comes to interior décor and making a style statement, the ‘wow’ factor of this fireplace is guaranteed to ignite conversations for years to come.”
Similar to a piece of art, the Solaris is often positioned on the wall at eye level. One side of the fireplace is finished with a simple black trim ring, while the other features customizable surround options, for a total of 32 combinations of front colors and style features. A see-through model creates a more minimalist look, similar to an indoor window with a levitating flame. This one-of-a-kind experience is part of why the Solaris also received accolades for “Best of Show” and “Best Gas Fireplace” at the hearth industry’s Vesta Awards.
The Solaris features Direct Vent gas technology, preferred in green building programs including the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Home Building Standards, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and LEED® for Homes.
