Escea has introduced a new range of slimline gas fireplaces designed to deliver more powerful performance than their successful gas fire model released earlier this year.

Introduced by New Zealand gas fireplace designer and manufacturer, Escea, the new gas fire is based on the design principles of the AF700 range but presented in a bigger and better model with increased size, heat output and heat efficiency in a similar slimline design.

Escea’s AF960 is bigger by 300mm in width and packs an impressive 7kW heat output and 4 Energy Star rating, making it ideal for heating a modern, open plan living space without worrying about the gas bill.

Key features of the new AF960 gas fires include Direct Vent Flue in combination with glass front creating a closed combustion system that keeps the user warm; only outside air used for combustion; exhaust air carried away without exchange with room air; innovative gas fire technology increasing heat output and energy efficiency; and cleaner operation with better heat retention within the room.

The large glass area creates a spectacular focal point with the sides inside the firebox angled to maximise the flame view, and create depth and a full flame effect. The simple framing and slimline design allow the AF960 to seamlessly integrate into a range of décor settings.

The AF960 gas fires are available in a range of stylistic options and fascia colours including Volcanic Black, Titanium Silver and Stainless Steel. The Smart Heat enabled fireplace allows control from anywhere, anytime via the Escea smartphone app.

Escea’s gas fires are available throughout Australia from Air Group Australia in WA and Glen Dimplex in all other states.
