How does Dimplex's Opti-Myst flame effect work?
Dimplex's patented Optimyst flame effect is a stunningly realistic illusion of flames and smoke, almost impossible to distinguish from the real thing. This fantastic effect is made possible by the Optimyst glass disk transducer, which sits inside an Optimyst fire and creates the ultra-fine mist that forms a key part of the world’s most realistic electric flame effect.
The transducer uses ultrasonic technology to create an ultra-fine water mist via a glass/ceramic disk within the transducer which vibrates at high speed. The resultant mist rises through the log bed and reflects the light from the lamps within the unit, creating the incredibly realistic, three-dimensional illusion of flame and smoke.
• Easy to re-fill water bottle under fuel bed
• Runs on average 8-10 hours before refill needed
• Water is at room temperature, so no heat
• Mist is so fine it does not add significantly to room humidity
Optimyst is available in a wide selection of Dimplex fires across freestanding stoves, inset or wall mounted fires and complete suites, to enhance the ambiance of any home. These include inset electric fires such as the Dimplex Danville which are designed to be combined within a standard fireplace back panel. Free-standing fireplace suites combine a surround, back panel and hearth with their own electric fire (often much larger than a standard 16" model). The Dimplex Cavalli suite provides a simple solution for adding a centrepiece into almost any room in your home.
For those looking to create a custom fireplace, the Opti-Myst Bespoke range is the perfect solution. Optimyst bespoke fires create opportunities that would not be available with gas or solid fuel because of safety issues or unwelcome heat – such as embedding the fire in the wall directly below large flatscreen televisions, or in a bedroom.
The Optimyst cassettes fires are perfect for creating the focal point in a piece of bespoke furniture or an eye-catching and individual fireplace. In fact, the possibilities are endless – and are just waiting for your imagination.
Optimyst cassettes are truly unique and offer the beauty of a real fire with the simplicity of electric. These cutting-edge cassettes enable you to create a stunning centrepiece in any room setting and with a choice of installation options, you really can design the ultimate focal point.
An Optimyst fire provides the beauty of a real fire with the simplicity of electric and will captivate you from the moment you see it. The authentic three-dimensional flame and smoke effect is created by lights reflecting against ultra-fine filtered water mist, an illusion so realistic you will find it difficult to distinguish from the real thing.
The flame effect can also be adjusted from gentle ‘embers’ to ‘roaring flame’ to give you the flame picture of your choice. Optimyst electric fires are the ultimate in ‘plug in and enjoy’ as most don’t require any installation, come with a 2kW thermostatically controlled heater* - just incase you need a quick burst of heat and the flame effect works independently of the heater.
*Specifications for each model do vary with some models just flame only with no heater, so please check technical details on individual fires.
