Our metallic fireplaces are designed to radiate and diffuse heat. Although Focus's primary aim is aesthetic, the very nature of the materials used and their high quality enables performance to be allied with style.Steel is an excellent heat conductor. Depending on the model, a contiguous volume of up to 350 m3 can be kept warm by a Focus fireplace. The quality of the wood burned and the position of the fireplace in the home are important considerations for optimum heating efficiency.
