Flare Fireplaces – Cool Touch Wall

Flare frameless, linear fireplaces with cool touch wall 

Making the impossible possible

The Cool Touch Wall allows you to safely mount your television closer to the edge of the glass compared with traditional fireplaces.

This design feature is made possible by Flare’s unique designs. Our fireplaces warm your home efficiently while minimizing heat transfer to surrounding surfaces. Lower temperatures around the fireplace give you the freedom to design your space. Our linear, frameless design is elegant, contemporary, and can be finished with normal building materials. Positioning the fireplace is easier as well. The wall above your fireplace remains cool enough to mount a TV at a comfortable viewing height without the need for bulky heat shields.

With traditional fireplaces, large amounts of heat escape into the surrounding walls, hearth or chimney. Brick and excessive insulation are usually needed to contain the heat. Our fireplaces direct heat straight into the room and away from surrounding surfaces so your walls stay relatively cool while maintaining the same heat output. A more efficient fireplace means you’ll spend less to heat your home.

Things like heat damage and viewing angle present obstacles to mounting a TV above a fireplace. Our Cool Touch Wall feature provides the easiest and best solution.

Heat radiating from traditional fireplaces can be extremely high. To avoid heat damage, TVs are usually mounted high up the wall, but this is less than ideal. Looking up at your TV can cause neck strains and the picture quality may be worse because of your viewing angle. Smoke and soot can escape and leave harmful residue on your TV and appliances.

Flare fireplaces produce less radiant heat and instead heat up your room by circulating warm air. Our fireplaces are sealed so smoke and soot can only exit through the vent. The Cool Touch Wall allows you to hang your TV lower and use less insulation than with a traditional fireplace, saving you time, money, and effort.
