A Direct-Vent Fireplace Insert turns your existing wood-burning fireplace into an efficient gas-fired heat source.  Direct-Vent Fireplace Inserts are classified as zone heating appliances. Zone heating is inherently more efficient than your existing wood-burning fireplace or your central furnace. Tailor your Loft fireplace to your décor with one of two surrounds or the Eclipse front. The elegant matte black surround frames the fireplace and emphasizes the interior. The two-tone surround – with bold stainless steel panels at the top and bottom joined by matte black verticals – accentuates the horizontal lines of the fireplace. Or choose the contemporary Eclipse front to add a slight projection into the room. Available in matte black and hammered pewter. The front attaches in minutes to the one-piece metal surround and includes a fireplace barrier screen. The screen protects you and your family from inadvertently touching the hot glass – but without detracting from the overall view of the fireplace.
