In this article we are going to take a look at some (not all) FLARE Collection's electric fires. Namely, their inset and wall mounted models.
Before we start, it makes sense to mention that all fires are highly energy efficient since running costs for their flame effect only is less than £2 per year; the expected life of LED’s is in excess of 30 years (assuming 5hrs / 7days per week usage. NPower standard electricity tariff for NE33 5QZ, 15/01/2014).) Also, they all have 1kW and 2kW heat settings aside from flame effect only option, which makes contemporary fires very unique and versatile - they can be used all year round.
FLARE Collection Abbey fire features polished arched design with the effect of cast iron. The fire is finished in traditional design and requires a total recess depth of 90 mm to be fully inset. With its Realistic coal bed & flame pattern, Abbey can compliment both classic and modern fireplaces, surrounds and interiors.
This fire is available in chrome finish and is supplied with 90mm twin spacer frame. Aspen does not have a bottom fan which reduces dust accumulation, cleaning and maintenance. For security purposes the fret is permanently attached to the fire, and switches are comfortably located on the top side of the fire.
Athena is available in Black, Chrome or Black/Chrome Duo. Finished in contemporary design, it has size options of either 16" and 18". To fully inset any of Athena models, a total recess depth of 140 mm is required. Easy reach top controls located under the fire canopy make Athena fire simple and convenient to operate. This fire is also available as a part of Hayden and Westcroft electric fire suites.
The fire comes with a choice of 3 different finishes: Black, Chrome and Brass. It can easily be fit against a flat wall or become fully recessed - it's up to you. Just like most electric fires, Camberley uses LED technology to produce flames.
Enrico is finished in brushed steel and has contemporary design. It also comes with a twin spacer as a standard so that you could easily fit the fire against either a flat wall or a back panel without the need of any inset depth. The fire does not have bottom fan which reduces dust accumulation, cleaning and maintenance.
Fazer can compliment both classic and modern interiors as it comes with a choice of black, brass or chrome finish. It also does not have bottom for reduced dust accumulation and is available as a part of Bramwell electric fire suite.
2 colours are available for this fire: Chrome and Brass. Brass version of the fire comes with a coal bed while Chrome option offers a choice of either a coal or pebble bed. Like all fires in this list, Mayfair has 1kW and 2kW heat settings as well as flame effect only option.
Vitesse has no bottom fan to reduce dust accumulation, features permanently attached fret for safety and security as well as mandatory heat settings of 1kW and 2kW plus flame effect only option. The fire is available in either brass or chrome.
Finished with flat black glass fascia, Amari electric fire features adjustable back lighting in colours of orange, blue and purple. It also comes with a remote control for you to adjust heat, timer and lights. This fire has a mix of decorative glass and stone pebbles, which can complement any contemporary interior. Amari can be either secured on the wall or be stand mounted. Also, heat is distributed from the bottom of the fire horizontally, which makes this product a popular model to fit under a wall mounted television.
In the times we live in, modern is the new black and minimalism is key. An electric fire should do more than blend into a room, its should transform its surroundings with stunning realistic flames and brushed steel trim, whilst oozing that contemporary style we crave. This fire is also available in Chrome finish.
Quattro fire has curved black glass fascia and features ambient back lighting (orange, blue, purple) as well as remote control. It also has easy reach manual switches located on the right hand side of the fire, making this product simple and convenient to operate.
