Clean Burning Catalytic Technology

  • Cool outside air is drawn in for combustion.
  • A metered amount of air enters the preheated air chamber, converting cold, incoming air into warm combustion air. The air then travels through a screened air wash which diffuses and evenly distributes air across the high quality ceramic glass. The perforated air wash works like a self-cleaning oven to keep the large glass viewing area clean and help the fireplace burn more efficiently.
  • An additional boost to the primary fire is achieved by air inlets near the base of the firebox, allowing for quick and easy startup of the fire. A durable, large catalytic combustor incinerates any leftover particulates, burning almost all of the flue gases and eliminating carbon monoxide.
  • The bypass damper allows for smoke-free fire startups and reloads when open, and assists overnight burns when closed.
  • The low profile door handle is seamlessly incorporated into the door and comes standard with a tool that allows you to open and close the door with ease.
  • The single air control is artfully hidden within the fireplace design and gives you the ability to effortlessly manage the burn rate of the fire. The convection chamber naturally circulates the air around the fireplace and returns it into the room as heated air. As the fireplace heats up the air flow increases, delivering more heated air into your home.
  • The exceptionally quiet 400 CFM convection fan (mounted below the firebox) comes standard and minimizes noise while maximizing heat output.

You can also use the GreenStart® Igniter when adding new wood or refreshing your fire after an overnight burn. Your fireplace door stays closed during startups; no more smoky starts, no more slow starts. Anyone can do it!
