Whatley Full Depth Radiant Inset Gas Fire

  • Full depth fuel bed for the ultimate flame picture
  • Requires a min. 180mm (+ 20mm debris collection) fireplace depth
  • Powerful heat output 3.8kW (Gross)
  • Open fronted for increased realism
  • OVERVIEW: Fantastic, versatile full depth gas fire that looks like a real open fire and will fit most chimney or flues

The Whatley is one of the best full depth radiant inset gas fires on the market. It is designed to homes with a pre-cast flue, pre-fabricated flue systems (class 1 or class 2 with min. 127mm or 5" diameter) or conventional class 1 brick chimney. This versatile fire is compatible with a standard 16" wide x 22" high fireplace opening (please refer to product specification - excludes low lintels) and requires a minimum depth of 180mm plus 20mm debris collection. The Whatley is an extremely popular all-rounder thanks to its affordable price, open fronted design and deep fuel bed with authentic flame picture. 

The Whatley is available with coal, pebble or log effect fuel bed. It can be specified in Manual Control (Rotary), Manual (Fingerslide) or Remote Control.

The Soho Timeless is a premium solid cast iron frame with subtle decorative detailing. It is the more minimalist of the Timeless cast frames and therefore would equally suit an interior with modern or traditional feel. It is available in a beautiful hand polished cast iron finish or traditional painted black. The Soho frame is manufactured by traditional iron foundry techniques and therefore may naturally include some minor imperfections such as pitting and black residual polishing marks. This is a direct result of the production and finishing process and is intentionally employed to achieve the authentic appearance. The Soho's removable ashpan is a separate component that is suspended off the hearth by discrete fixings in the cast frame. The ashpan allows access, if applicable, to the controls (model dependent). 

Please note the price is dependent upon the final configuration. Natural gas only.
