Stylish but powerful gas fires

A decade or so ago, gas fires in South Africa were designed to operate with an open chimney to remove the fumes from the combustion process. They typically had glowing artificial coals or logs on top. Well set up, they looked remarkably like a real coal or log fire operating. However, the combustion process produced lots of dangerous fumes that needed to be vented up a chimney. Along with the fumes went about 70% of the heat from the fire.

These flued gas fires were popular in a time when petrol and gas were a lot cheaper than today, even though they were limited in their heat output. With fuel prices increasing substantially, flued gas fires decreased rapidly in sales. The cost of warming a section of your home with one of these became prohibitive. Fireplace designers looked at ways of burning gas with a good flame effect and with minimal emissions, to provide cost effective and visually attractive heating.

Infiniti Fires flueless gas fires are perfect for warming a living area on a cold winter night and with a great flame effect.

Ten years ago, the Infiniti Fires Flame Dancerᵀᴹ gas fire was launched on the South African market. With remarkably low emissions, they are very safe to use without a chimney. With no heat loss up a chimney, these grates are powerful heaters, capable of heating large volumes of home.

With several different fireplace designs, these fires have become popular sellers, with all the benefits of large amounts of heat available at the flick of a switch. Perfect for warming a living area on a cold winter night and with a great flame effect to sit around and be mesmirised by. No electricity is required for these fires to operate, making them a must have, when load shedding occurs in winter.
