The Classic Range Custom-Built Gas Fire Insert

The Classic Gas Fire Insert
The Classic Inset Gas Fire showing the 'Glowing Fibre Board' option with coals,
and manual burner controls beneath.

Designed and manufactured with quality and comfort in mind, the Classic offers the feel of a real coal fire as well as creating a warm glowing focal point to your room. It is an economical fire, reducing conventional gas consumption with increased heat output from the fire bed.

We can custom build a Classic gas fire to your own measurements and specifications -


All Classic Gas Fires incorporate a pre-aerated burner, multifunctional gas control, oxy-depletion pilot burner, piezo Ignition and a multi-hole injector as standard. It also has the industry standard BM Valve which offers a combination gas safety control valve for semi-automatic operation, with thermo-electic flame failure device, piezo igniter and flow control by means of a disk valve.

Wall Mounted Manual Controls

If preferred, the manual control can be replaced by a wall mounted device, located up to 1 metre away, which eliminates the need to bend down to operate the gas fire - a boon to the elderly and disabled, and without the additional cost of a full remote control system - there is no surcharge for this facility, which can be included as standard.

The Gas Fire Bed

The gas fire bed can be supplied with either of three options:

  • The Glowing Fibre Board (shown above)
  • The Glowing Blanket (shown below)
  • Granulated Pumice (shown below) - suitable for cast iron fire baskets

Remote Controls

With the Classic we can offer two types of remote control:

  • A Permanent Pilot: This is a servomotor operated valve with a permanent pilot control allowing for infinite adjustment from Low to High Fire.
  • The 'E' Flame Remote Ignition & Control System: This operates in conjunction with our standard pilot burner and Oxygen Depletion System (ODS), and features main valve function shutoff and Low to High modulation. This system is only suitable for burner sizes B and above (See Table on Gas Fires FAQs).

The Genesis Custom-Made Inset Gas Fire

With the charm and appearance of a natural coal fire, The genesis offers a balance of decorativeness and efficiency, cleanliness and instant control with either Natural Gas or LPG.
Dancing yellow flames and bright radiant heat combine to create a truly enjoyable experience and a sistinct economy in operation.

This configuration is especially suitable and we recommend it for fireplaces with cast and ceramic backs, where the fibre board insulates against excessive heat loss through the fire back.

All Genesis models have the same options as in the Classic Gas Fire above.
