Loft Series Vent-Free Fireplaces VFL20

The unique Loft Series Fireplace includes a Loft burner in a compact system. This versatile unit installs as a zero-clearance vent-free fireplace or as an insert in an existing fireplace. Rated at 20,000 Btu input for the VFL20 and 28,000 for the VFL28, the 99-percent efficient Loft Fireplace will quickly warm your living space - and grab your attention. A special 10,000 Btu model is also available for bedroom applications, where allowed by local codes. Choose the Millivolt system and select one of seven control options – from a simple wall switch to a thermostat remote to the ultimate programmable remote. Or choose the Intermittent Pilot system, which includes a variable flame-height remote control with integral thermostat. Finish your fireplace installation with one of Empire’s two distinctive decorative fronts. The ultra-clean frame-less tempered glass front features rounded and polished edges and a silk screened black border. With it's minimally visible hardware, the glass pane “floats” in front of the fireplace. For a more traditional look, choose the simple, elegant black metal frame with glass panel. This four-sided frame, with its 1 3/4-inch depth, provides the perfect transition to drywall, tile, or other material. Installed as an insert, your Loft system will require the three-sided decorative surround. Like the four-sided frame, this surround measures 1 3/4-inch deep and makes a clean transition from an existing fireplace. To help conceal a large hearth opening, Empire also offers a 48 x 36-inch shroud, for use in conjunction with the decorative surround. The Loft Fireplace interior and burner top are finished in rich gloss black to reflect the flames and create unique looks from every viewing angle. Add decorative glass – in Black Polished, Blue Clear, or Clear Frost – to conceal the burner and instantly change the character of your fireplace. Enhance the heat distribution of your Loft Fireplace with the optional blower. The quiet air circulation system features variable speed control and automatic operation.
