IBS 2018 Sneak Peek: Meet the Phoenix
Beginning a new chapter in fireplace innovation, we are proud to debut the Phoenix TrueView Fireplace powered by WhisperTone Technology™ at our International Builders’ Show (IBS) 2018 booth #W2529 in Orlando.
Recognized as a finalist for Best Indoor Living Product in the Best of IBS Awards, the Phoenix pairs the ambiance of a traditional, open-front fireplace consumers love with the convenience, design flexibility and easy installation of gas builders demand.
“Three decades ago, Heat & Glo revolutionized the industry with direct vent technology, and the Phoenix builds upon this legacy of innovation by providing what homeowners and builders have been asking for: The convenience of gas without the glass,” says Jackie Schneider, Heat & Glo brand director.
The Phoenix also offers unprecedented ease and flexibility for builders, offering the same clearances as a gas fireplace along with horizontal venting, allowing for quick and easy installation. It also utilizes WhisperTone™, a patent-pending three-part venting system featuring an automatic damper that stops air movement when the fireplace is off, preventing cold air from sneaking into the home.
Homeowners who previously had to decide between the convenience of gas or the realism of an open wood-burning fireplace will no longer need to compromise aesthetically, as the Phoenix comes standard with either a traditional brick or reflective black-glass liner, high-definition logs and a glowing, LED ember bed. An optional Bluetooth wireless speaker system allows homeowners to hear the fire as well as see it—a direct resolution of a common complaint homeowners have against gas. The Phoenix is also a win with homeowners looking to add both a TV and fireplace to their space, as a TV can safely be placed just 12 inches above without a mantel.
What else will we be burning at IBS Orlando?
Boasting clean finishes and obscenely large viewing areas, the TRUE combines high-efficiency heating performance, traditional styling and innovative safety features to deliver maximum impact and ambiance to luxury spaces.
The newest modern linear to the Heat & Glo lineup, the PRIMO gives homeowners complete design freedom, including flush-to-wall finishing and the ability to hang a TV or artwork safely above, making it a natural choice for high-end homebuyers.
