The Heat & Glo® LUX60

As the leader in innovation and design, Heat & Glo’s Modern Collection continues to redefine the gas fireplace for consumers seeking comfort, style and convenience. At the 2009 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas this week, Heat & Glo will unveil its most daring and aesthetically stimulating member of the Modern Collection – the LUX60.

The LUX60 is a large-scale fireplace that commands control over the entire room. While it measures five feet wide by five feet tall, it is designed for zero clearance installation providing for placement flexibility. The flame is appropriately sized to the fireplace – large and high reaching. At the base of the flame is a sculpture burner featuring randomly placed stainless steel tubes that illuminate with the fire’s heat. The refractory is enhanced with LED lights that can be turned on with or without the flames for a dramatic effect. The front of the LUX60 has a bold, industrial modern design, adding a hint of masculinity to the fireplace. The LUX60 captures the alluring effect of color in a gas fireplace like never before and is sure to set trends in the fireplace industry.

This direct vent gas fireplace is for sophisticated homeowners who want to make a strong statement about their unique décor style. “Premium buyers purchase luxury, one-of-a-kind products,” said Dave Miller, Heat & Glo brand manager. “The Heat & Glo LUX60 was designed for this group, who wouldn’t consider buying a commodity product, especially when it comes to an emotional purchase like a fireplace.”

More than a fad, modern styling and décor have become a legitimate trend in interior design. “Over the last several years, we have seen a convergence of modern style-driven consumers in our market,” said Miller. “The modern fireplace has become mainstream, and many of the people purchasing them would not consider a traditional-looking gas fireplace because it simply does not fit with their décor.”

The LUX60 features direct vent gas technology, maintaining indoor air quality by expelling 100 percent of the fireplace’s combustion exhaust, moisture and odors outside the home. Its sealed combustion system 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 LUX06 is on display at the International Builders’ Show in booth #C5643. Product images and additional information.
