Product Information

No matter what type of home you live in, the Dimplex Fortrose will provide a stylish, contemporary centre-piece whilst boasting one of the most highly regarded flame effects available. This free-standing electric stove fire can be simply placed on a suitable surface on it's own, recessed into a chamber or combined within a fireplace and only requires a standard electricity supply.

Dimplex's Optimyst effect uses water vapour to create a truly amazing effect that is almost indistinguishable from a real flame. Your friends will be amazed by the effect created from this timeless electric stove! Operated by remote control with manual override, you can control the flame intensity and heat settings from the comfort of your armchair. The mesmerising Optimyst flame effect is produced by water and can be enjoyed without the need to have the heater on.

The water tank is easily accessible by lifting out the one-piece log effect fuel bed and after filling will last around 8 hours. There is also a thermostat incorporated within the fire for added control of the heater.

The Fortrose is a the ideal combination of strong tradition and contemporary ease. Complete with fully variable flame and smoke intensity controls, this cast iron effect stove utilises patented Optimyst technology for the world’s most realistic electric flame effect. Optimyst uses ultrasonic technology to create a unique flame effect, with an ultra-fine water mist that mimics flame and smoke. As the mist rises through the logs, warm light is emitted which reflects against the water, creating an the 3D illusion of flames and smoke which is commonly mistaken for the real thing.

This fire can operate via a remote control and can even be used independently of the fully concealed 2kW heater, meaning you can enjoy the classic feel of the fire all year round.

The thermostatic controls mean you can set your fire to produce heat when the room drops to a certain temperature, helping to maintain comfort in your home. The cast iron style is a traditional classic, fitting in with any interior.
