Cast iron has long been a material of choice for fires because of its heat retaining properties. The Be Modern Cast gas fire range is unmistakably sturdy. With many defined characters, it also has an elegant side shown by the tapering trim and slender bands across the fret. Choose from four alternative finishes for that final flourish.
Well suited to both classical or contemporary fireplace design that have a standard cut-out in the back panel, the Cast gas fire fascia can be combined with any of the Be Modern range of gas fires including open-fronted, Slimline models for shallow pre-cast flues, a deep convector with open flames, glass-fronted high efficiency models and even a balanced flue gas fire designed for homes where no chimney or flue is present.
All models with the exception of the glass-fronted high efficiency versions are available with a choice of manual controls (located at the bottom of the fire behind the fret) or a convenient 'Smartslide' side lever control. Glass-fronted high efficiency models are Smartslide control only.
With an inset depth of only 123mm (5"), the Classic Slimline Radiant is designed predominantly for shallower, Class 2 Pre-Cast flues. Open-fronted with a coal fuel effect, this model has a maximum heat output of 3.1kW in standard form or you can add an 'Xtra Canopy' which increases the output to 3.6kW.
