Running on biofuel, our fireplaces are clean and environmentally friendly as the flame radiates warmth throughout the room.Our pieces will make great stylish additions to interior and exterior spaces.
Our ethanol based fireplaces are smoke free and require no flue. They represent not merely decoration but real fireplaces which create an outstanding environment.
It’s the cleanness of the design that makes the object so attractive and effective. Our products offer practical solutions with functional and eye-catching designs.
Our fireplaces use a fuel called Denatured Ethanol (ethyl alcohol or metholated spirit), making our products clean and environmentally friendly. As the fuel burns the main body of the fireplace heats and radiates warmth throughout the room. The combustion chamber holds 1.5 litres of fuel and burns up to 6 hours depending on the heat setting, which can be adjusted for comfort.
Icon Fires set the standard for luxury bioethanol fireplaces with advanced levels of performance, functionality and refinement. Icon Fires make a stylish addition to indoor and outdoor spaces. They open a world of creative scope to push the boundaries of fireplace design.

Flueless fireplaces allow for endless installation possibilities. Architects, designers and home renovators around the world have embraced bioethanol fireplaces to achieve traditional and minimalist contemporary styles.
Bio-fuel fireplaces are a modern style of flueless fireplaces that don't emit any dangerous fumes. Therefore the fireplace can be placed in any room. With bio-ethanol, do it yourself fireplaces are within reach for everyone. You avoid venting dangerous fumes, as bioethanol products require no venting. With bioethanol or bio-fuel burners, ambient fireplaces are easier than ever before.
Gas fireplaces are available in two styles, the open gas convection boxes or the glass fronted sealed units. Some are available with pebbles, logs or coals and generally the sealed gas fires are the more efficient.
Gas fireplaces are all different in their installation and flueing requirements but all these specifications are listed on the heater pages. If you're not sure, contact us .
The gas fireplaces listed on these pages are all tested and approved for the Australian market and all are flued so you won't have any problems with emissions or unburned gas fumes escaping into your living space.
Some of these gas flame fires are extremely efficient and some not so. You will notice that some companies call their fireplaces 'decorative' or 'ambient'. This means that not a great deal of heat is produced but they are intended more as a visual fireplace and there are some great looking styles available. Check on the relevant gas heater pages as the output or heating capacity will be listed. Most gas fires are available as zero clearance for flexibility of installation.
We know that most of you will want great looks and plenty of heat so there is a good selection here that will meet both criteria and most importantly, they are available at the right price. If you find a better price on anything on these pages, let us know - we'll beat it!

The wood heater manufacturers listed here have different style heaters so the following guide will help. The four main styles of wood heaters are :-
- Freestanding wood heaters.....Morso, Lopi, Regency, Hergom, Invicta, ADF, Clean Air, Jindara, Eureka, Focus, Austroflamm and Heatmaster
- Inbuilt wood heaters.....Regency, Lopi, Eureka, Heatmaster, Jindara, Hergom and Clean Air
- 2 door....Only Eureka and Jindara.

All these styles can be achieved with open fireboxes or the all time favorites, the slow combustion wood heater. All except 2 door of course, which are available only as slow combustion (or wood heater with a sealed door).
Zero clearance wood fires are simply insulated fireboxes that are designed to be 'boxed' into a timber or metal framed surround and triple flued to create the inbuilt fireplace look. Some like the Heatmaster A series insulated fireboxes can also be freestanding.
Almost every fireplace requires some accessories such as a fire screen and fire tools and some just need a good dress up. Have a look through our 'General Information' section for all your fireplace accessories and general fireplace information.
