Here are a few reasons why.
Ease of Installation:
Simple wall mounted support allows you to hang a Solas fireplace on flat or corner exterior walls (up to 24" on center) - Venting is also simple as you terminate immediately outside.
Solas Fireplaces are controlled by Coprecis R-Emotion Valve System which has been used for many years throughout Europe. The valve is warrantied for one year.
Fuel Specific - LP or NG:
Solas Fireplaces are ordered fuel specific, LP or NG depending on your market. This eliminates the need for time consuming field fuel conversion.
Rugged Rust-Free Firebox:
Solas Fireplaces use a heavy-duty 16 GA. aluminized steel firebox to withstand years of use while providing rust protection from the corrosive nature of gas combustion.
Easy Surround Interchangeability:
Solas Fireplaces allow you to install or remove any of our surrounds in less than a minute without a single tool. By holding each side of the surround, you simply swing the bottom out and lift the surround up. To reinstall the surround simply reverse this proceedure.
Solas Fireplaces have minimal clearances to combustibles and take up very little space in a room. The fireplaces can be located as low as 3" from the floor or positioned perfectly to "couch height." Overall depth is just 7 5/8".
Solas Fireplaces can be operated manually or by remote control (standard). Simple push buttons on the right hand side of the fireplace are for manual operation. Flame height can be raised or lowered to achieve the desired effect.
Automatic Pilot Ignition:
The Pilot flame for Solas Fireplaces can be ignited using the remote control or the manual operation panel - no more getting down on your knees to light the pilot! The fully programmable remote control can also be used to control the unit thermostatically.
Outstanding Radiant Heat:
Solas Fireplaces provide outstanding radiant heat using the combination of reflective glass embers and porcelain enamel panels. The panels provide a reflective radiant heat, in addition to several layers of fire light - all of which enhances the soothing fire effect.
Reflective Glass & Pan Burner:
Solas Fireplaces use hundreds of pieces of reflective glass on top of the pan burner to cast light throughtout the fireplace and surrounding area.
