Heat & Glo’s Sexiest Modern Fireplace Yet: The RED Series
Heat & Glo® changed the landscape of modern gas fireplaces and now everyone is seeing RED – Rectangular European Design. Longer than tall in shape, these sleek fireplaces have become the most popular style of modern fireplace in the industry. At the 2009 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Heat & Glo will unveil its most impressive linear modern fireplace yet – the RED60.
The RED Series is the first and only fireplace on the market that has recessed glass inside the firebox, creating the allure and illusion of an open flame. Nearly invisible to the naked eye, the recessed glass is surrounded on both sides by media trays full of custom stones creating a seamless appearance as they shimmer in the light created by the ribbon flames. The custom stones are enhanced from below by optional LED lighting in the base of the firebox, creating a dramatic glowing display.
The RED Series is available as both a see through fireplace and a single-side fireplace, and there are multiple linear firebox options from which to choose. For the media trays, homeowners can choose from several semi-precious stones such as black onyx and glass stones in hues like scarlet, emerald, crystal and cobalt.
Location options abound with this fireplace. The slim design facilitates various wall placement options that can be high, low and anywhere in between. As with all Heat & Glo direct vent gas fireplaces, the RED Series can be vented and installed in almost any room in the house – on outside or inside walls.
This latest addition to Heat & Glo’s Modern Collection is inspired by our friends across the pond with its simple lines and contemporary, artistic influence. The RED Series marries fire and art, creating a sexy combination that is both fascinating and mesmerizing.
Clean and thin European design trends are steadily becoming more commonplace in the U.S., influencing everything from fireplaces to televisions. It is estimated that 25 percent of U.S. homes now have a flat panel LCD or plasma television. And many of them require more real estate than their predecessors. “Large flat panel televisions and fireplaces sometimes compete for the same space in the home,” said Dave Miller, Heat & Glo brand manager. “Because the linear stature of RED fireplaces allows for so many placement options, these two appliances can share common spaces together. In addition, with regard to shape and color, this fireplace complements the features of a flat panel television beautifully.”
RED Series fireplaces feature direct vent gas technology, maintaining indoor air quality by expelling 100 percent of the fireplace’s combustion exhaust, moisture and odors outside the home. They have a sealed combustion system that keeps by-products, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and excess moisture from entering the home. Direct vent gas technology also helps builders earn green building points. It is the preferred technology in every green building program, including the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Home Building Standards, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED® for Homes and ENERGY STAR’s® Indoor Air Package. It is also an American Lung Association Midwest Health House® program Clean Air Choice™.
The RED60 is on display at the International Builders’ Show in booth #C5643. Product images and additional information.
