The Burley Environ is flueless gas fire designed for installation into a standard fireplace opening. It boasts a real flame set behind a glass panel and benefits from not requiring a chimney or flue. The state-of-the-art technology used incorporates a catalytic converter which converts the carbon monoxide created during the combustion process into carbon dioxide (which is harmless and is present in fresh air). Burley has NEVER had a catalytic converter fail or need replacing.
A flueless gas fire can be fitted in minutes rather than several hours. It is an extremely simple and problem free operation provided the Gas Safe registered fitter follows the installation instructions. If it is to go in an open chimney, then the flue must be blocked. Apart from that the fire just needs connecting and testing, and a 100cm² air vent fitting.
When fitting a flueless fire such as the Burley Environ, it does not need to be sealed to the fireplace opening and flueless gas fires do not have to be installed on an outside wall. As no flue is required, thousands of pounds can be saved by not building a new chimney or restoring a condemned one.
With all the heat entering the room, the Environ boast a 100% efficiency rating and has a maximum output of 2.5kW. A minimum room size of 30m³ (length x width x height) and as per Building Regulations Part J, an air vent which provides not less than 100cm2 free air must be installed in the room, at least 1 metre away from the fire. A chimney, ceiling or floor vent is not suitable.
For classical homes, the Environ 4240 and 4248 are popular options or for modern interiors the 4242 and 4247 offer a more contemporary feel. All models feature cream brick-effect interior and coal fuel effect with the exception of the 4247 which has a black interior with pebbles.
Recess requirement of 95mm (3¾") when insetting into a standard, 16" fireplace opening. If inset depth is not available, an optional spacer frame is offered allowing for flush fitting against the back panel.
