At Superior Fires we believe you should be able to create your perfect fireplace whatever your room layout.

Modern Inset Flueless Gas Fires

Superior Fires Modern Flueless Inset Gas Fires features all the benefits of the flueless technology; 100% efficiency, reduced running costs, simple installation, realistic coal fuelbed (excludes Westbury Positano model) and a clean burning ribbon burner. The Westbury range of gas flueless inset fires do not require a chimney or flue therefore all the heat generated is distributed into the room and none is lost up the chimney. This clever technology not only saves money on installation but significantly reduces the running cost.

There are a number of installation options. To help a 43mm spacer frame is fitted as standard however, this can be removed if fitting into an existing fireplace opening. For a flush fit without spacer a minimum fireplace opening depth of 135mm (plus 20mm to allow for fixings) is required. Please note the chimney or flue must be blocked off in this type of installation.

If you don't have a fireplace opening or chimney breast and you want to install against a flat wall then there are two options; 1. For fireplace surrounds with a minimum 75mm (3") rebate, you will need to purchase a 75mm spacer frame. 2. For fireplace surrounds with a minimum 25mm (1") rebate, you will need to purchase a 155mm spacer. In both situations the 43mm spacer is discarded.

Modern Inset Electric Fires

Combining a flickering flame effect and under bed glow our Modern Inset Electric Fires provide a real alternative to a gas fire, but without the need of a chimney or flue.

All our electric fires feature a powerful fan heater discretely positioned under the front canopy and provide forward directional heat. The heat settings can be varied between: OFF, 1kW and 2kW. A very popular feature of our electric fires is that they are able to be set to flame effect only (without heat) so on a cool summer's evening you can still enjoy the look and feel of a fire but without heat.  

We have three electric fire engines to choose from: our Clara range of electric fires include an LED flame effect with opaque flame screen which provides a warm flame effect with deep red tones. The Londra range is identical to the Clara however, features an uprated screen made from a premium piece of reflective glass. The mirror glass increases the perceived depth of the fire by reflecting the coal fuelbed thus, giving a much more realistic flame picture. The Santini range of fires incorporates our premium LCD technology. LCD electric fires feature a range of real-life film sequences that set a new standard in electric fire design. 9 video scenes are included; coal fire, log fire, twig fire (with realistic sound of crackling fire), modern flueless flames, abstract, river scene and fish tank!

Modern Inset Fires - Chimney Required

We have a large range of modern gas fires and contemporary electric fires which are perfect for homes with a conventional chimney or flue system. Chimneys and flues can vary enormously so it is always wise to check the fireplace opening width, height and depth. Our modern inset gas fires are installed within the fireplace opening, however our electric fires provide the option to also simply fix flat against a wall if the spacer frames are not removed.

Modern Gas Fires

If you are looking for a modern or contemporary gas fire to accompany your fireplace then we have a range of Modern Inset Gas Fires designed especially for you. When choosing a modern gas fire it is important to check the compatibility with your flue or chimney. 

Pre-Cast: Our pre-cast open fronted gas fires are purposely designed for pre-cast flues which are generally more shallow in depth. For this reason we have two slimline models; the Chewton Slimline Radiant platform has a depth of 110mm, whereas the Asaba Slimline Convector is 125mm, due to the convector style firebox. The Chewton and Asaba Slimline gas fires are our most popular models for pre-cast flues however depending on your fireplace rebate and pre-cast flue construction you may be able to fit the Grosvenor (depth 145mm) or Whatley (180mm depth). Both of which are also suitable for pre-cast flues. Don't forget to add 20mm for the debris collection space.

Class 2: We have a range of inset fires that are designed to be compatible with a pre-fabricated flue system measuring minimum 127mm (5") internal diameter. Generally, a pre-fabricated flue will use a flue box which is much deeper than a pre-cast flue starter block. Therefore in this type of installation when depth is not a major factor our Full Depth Whatley Radiant and Full Depth Convector gas fires are very popular due to the increased fuelbed depth and flame effect.

Class 1: If you have a Class 1 chimney with 178mm (7") internal flue diameter or greater, then in theory you can choose any inset open fronted or glass fronted gas fire from our slimline or full depth range. Our Modern Class 1 Inset Gas Fires offer unprecedented realism with fantastic heat output. There is something to choose for everyone. We have over 50 different options to choose from.

Freestanding Stoves

The celebrity endorsement by television presenters such as chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and property developer Sarah Beeny have helped launch the meteoric rise of wood-effect burning stoves and turned them into the 'must have' in home-decorative of the noughties and now teens. Traditionally seen as a heating appliance in rural areas, wood burning stoves are becoming increasingly fashionable in cities and towns.

They also fit much better with our modern lifestyles as you don't require any storage space for logs or cleaning out the ashes after use - as there is none.

Flueless gas stoves offer the following benefits: 100% efficiency, reduced running costs, simplified installation and servicing. Incorporating the latest in gas fire technology flueless gas stoves do not need a chimney or flue to operate. Instead the combustion gases pass through a catalytic system positioned at the top of the appliance which converts carbon monoxide into harmless carbon dioxide and water vapour. Levels of which are so low they are typically present in fresh air. Our innovative technology provides a flexible design allowing you to install a fire not only in the living room but also dining room, office, or kitchen. Flueless gas fires and stoves are not suitable for bedrooms or bathrooms.
