Big is beautiful
The best dressed homes in Manchester are opting to have much larger than usual fire models fitted so that the fire, fireplace and mantel become the focus of the room. One of the leading manufacturers of these oversized gas fires is Elgin & Hall.  This is a British design and fire manufacturer that has been developing innovative and new fireplaces, fires and stoves for over 50 years.

The very clever things about the design of some of the latest and larger gas fires is that the fires taper back at the rear of the fire which allows them to be fitted into standard 16 x 22” fire opening. This means that homeowners don’t have to worry about having building work carried out to accommodate these new, larger fires.

No longer are homeowners living in properties with Class 2 Pre-Cast on a flat wall limited to a shallow 16" gas fire or traditional outset gas fire that protrudes into the room. The new, innovative gas fireplace suites from Elgin & Hall have been uniquely engineered in a way to fit into a standard 22” x 16” opening in a UK chimney breast or pre-cast flue, with no need for any building work.
