IBS Heats Up with Gas Fireplaces

Heatilator®, Heat & Glo®, and Majestic highlight on-trend fireplaces

LAS VEGAS – January 19, 2016 – Fireplaces will continue to be top-of-mind for homebuyers in 2016 – in fact, Houzz just named them a top trend for 2016. At this year’s International Builders’ Show, Heat & Glo®, the industry leader in fireplace design and technology, and Heatilator®, the number one preferred fireplace brand by builders, and Majestic are showcasing gas fireplaces that align with key trends – such as innovative technology and contemporary aesthetics - that these homebuyers are looking for.

Highlights include:

  • Heat & Glo PRIMO: A sophisticated take on contemporary styling, the PRIMO gives homeowners complete design freedom. Zero restrictions on finishing materials – including barnwood - eliminate concerns of overheating or safety hazards and offer the ability to safely hang a TV or valuable art above the fireplace for a completely custom look. Plus, the PRIMO features exclusive PowerFlow™ Heat Management Technology, which provides heat and flame control at the flip of a switch, allowing homeowners to comfortably enjoy the ambiance and beauty of a fireplace year-round.
  • Heat & Glo Palazzo: A new kind of outdoor fireplace, the Palazzo features a clean, linear design that provides a contemporary focal point in an outdoor setting. The ability to install finishing material up to the firebox opening creates a unique frameless look that is built to last with marine-grade stainless steel. The industry’s first remote-controlled Power Screen moves up and down for a seamless look that’s both safe and easy to use, and keeps debris out of the fireplace.
  • Heatilator Novus: The best-selling fireplace for more than two decades, the Novus is incredibly versatile, with excellent venting capabilities, and easy to install anywhere.
  • Majestic Echelon: Featuring ultra-contemporary styling, the Echelon lets homeowners view the beautiful ribbon flame from almost any angle. Available in single-sided or see-through models, versatile installation options make it the only see-through linear fireplace that can be installed on an exterior wall.

“It’s clear that fireplaces are a key consideration for homebuyers,” said Bob Ballard, senior vice president of marketing for Heat & Glo, Heatilator, and Majestic. “We’re continuing to innovate with contemporary designs and reinvent time-tested classics to satisfy this need, and we’re excited to share our best-selling traditional and contemporary fireplaces with builders and help them have a bigger impact with their customers.”

Heat & Glo will also feature its best-selling 8000CLX, TRUE, and MEZZO fireplaces. Heatilator fireplaces on-site will include the Ion, Caliber, and Crave, and the booth will also showcase the Pearl fireplace from the Majestic brand. Visit booth #C6116 to experience them first-hand!
