Model Details

Safety First
Because our inserts were designed to deliver maximum BTUs to provide the best heating solutions for your home, the units will become hot to the touch. Consequently, all Monessen direct vent fireplaces come standard with a certified safety barrier. The screen barrier affixes to your fireplace and has been approved by a third party testing agency to conform to specific standards designed to prevent injury from hot glass.

Signature Command® Control
Ultimate convenience at your fingertips — This exclusive system gives you a full-featured command center for your fireplace. The optional remote offers even more flexibility.
Natural Flame burner system
Enjoy dancing, realistic flames — The aluminized pan burner produces realistic, randomly dancing flames. Its large ember bed and glowing ceramic fiber logs add to the overall fire viewing experience.
Up to 32,000 BTUs
Stay warm and cozy — This fireplace delivers a range of BTUs from 21,500 to 32,000, so you'll stay nice and warm while efficiently heating the room to help lower heating costs.
