Although often contemporary looking, hole in the wall fires have actually been around for many years. The way fireplaces are being installed has changed thus increasing the popularity of hole in the wall fires. Hole in the wall fireplaces traditionally required a hearth to be mounted on the floor in front of the fireplace. Today however, selected designs have been officially tested and approved to be installed without the need for a hearth.
There are usually 2 main types of hole in the wall fires; gas fire insert units and self contained units. Hole in the wall fires are available for both Class 1 (typically brick built chimneys found in houses built before 1970), Class 2 (flue box/chamber connected to a 5″ internal diameter pipe or flexible flue liner) and Precast flue systems. For those who do not have a chimney, there are a number of wall fires available with a Power Flue or Balanced Flue option.
Most hole in the wall fires are positioned 3-5 feet above the floor on the wall, freeing up valuable floor space. Both modern and traditional homes can benefit from a hole in the wall fire as they make a dramatic statement.
