For those who want the classical charm of a cast insert with an electric fire, the choice was limited to a traditional cast iron insert which is predominantly designed for a real fire. This would result in recess depth being required to accommodate the deep back section of the cast insert and a basic glow rather than an authentic flame picture found on modern electric fires.
Flamerite have tackled this by their popular Tennyson Cast electric fire insert. With the character of a real cast insert in a combination of matt black and polished silver finish on the arch, canopy and fret bars, it features an authentic, flickering flame designed to mimic a real fire. Another bonus with this model is when it is combined into a suite as offered here with the Corbel surround, the mantel accommodates the depth of the insert resulting in it being suitable for installing on a flat wall with no recess behind needed!
The surround is offered in two sizes; The Grand Corbel measures 54" (1370mm) across the mantel shelf which for smaller rooms or wall spaces, the Petite Corbel has an overall width of 48" (1220mm). It is completed with a stylish, granite effect hearth and provides a simple, free-standing solution to create a stunning feature into homes without a chimney or flue or for those who want to enjoy the option of having the ambience of flames with no heat.
The electric fire within the Tennyson has LED flame effect only setting and 1000W/2000W heat setting all operated by remote control with manual override controls also on the fire. The Corbel surround is available in a choice of three paint colour plus smooth or textured finish.
