Warm and Fuzzy
Regency’s new fireplaces sport optional reflective panels to amplify the appearance of the fire. Each model has a colored frame and a face without louvers. The collection can be included in blueprints or added to a home during a remodel. The L676 Sunrise (shown) frames a 676-square-inch opening.
Topas, not Tapas
Plenty of people still use wood stoves to provide supplemental or even primary heat, and Rais’ Topas can provide plenty of it. It features a large opening and firewood holder and an innovative air wash system to allow for a more efficient flame. Standard features include steel side and top plates and the necessary connecting pipe. For FREE information, visit http://pb.hotims.com/20670-261
