Built in Gas Fires
Built in Gas Fires come in many shapes and sizes, whether convector, inset, or hole in the wall, with a wide range available in contemporary and traditional styles, as well as models for decorative effect or highly efficient fires to heat your home.
Gas convector boxes can be glass fronted, or open, depending on whether you are looking for a decorative feature or an efficient means of heating your home. Open fronted convector boxes are between 50 – 60 efficient, with glass fronted applianced at 70 – 80 % efficient.
We supply a selection of convector boxes from different manufacturers, in order to provide maximum choice of trim and surround options.
What's the difference between Glass Fronted and Open Models?
Hole the wall fireplaces can either be glass or open fronted; open fronted models are less efficient and more of a decorative feature, glass fronted models can either be designed to work with conventional chimneys, normally with liner systems or used without a chimney as a balanced flue appliance. Open fires fall between 10 and 20 % efficient whereas the glass fronted ones are 70 to 80% efficient.
Most Gazco appliances are available in both formats with the exceptions of the Riva 2 800 which is only available as a balanced flue fire, the Barbas range are primarily balanced flue but can be adapted to be used in standard chimneys.
Any gas fire raised off the ground is referred to as a "hole in the wall" fire.
