The Gallery Lincoln mantel is shown here with the optional Tulip cast iron insert. This alluring interior boasts intricate detailing which is available in all matt black finish or highlighted as pictured with the beautiful scroll detail and raised sections polished to a satin silver finish. Create your own style statement with a selection of ten tile panels including hand painted tube-lined tiles and classical Victorian decorative designs. You can fit the Tulip insert using an existing clay fire back or if preferred, it can be supplied with its own dedicated cast iron back section.
An optional gas fire will liven up the fire chamber providing flickering, open flames dancing over a glowing coal effect fuel bed. Simple operation using the manual controls concealed behind the removable ashpan drawer at the base of the insert, these kind of fires provide a easy way to add ambience and a stylish feature designed to be used in conjunction with your main source of heating.
For properties without a chimney or flue (although adequate space is needed to accommodate the inserts recess depth), there are two models of electric fires designed especially for the Tulip insert. Comprising of light bulbs under an orange plastic moulded cover with coal pieces, the electric fires produce a welcoming glow with effect only or a version that can also give out up to 2kW of heat from a fan.
These types of fireplaces were originally used for burning logs and coal. The Gallery Lincoln mantel with optional Tulip can be supplied with a solid fuel kit for those who want the ultimate in realism. The open fire option will require an uprated hearth (slabbed).
