Glen Dimplex Flame Technology Brings Together The Very Best In Gas and Electric Flame Effects

Dimplex Opti-V at 100% Design

Glen Dimplex Flame Technology brings together the latest electric and gas fire technology from Dimplex and Faber Fireplaces at 100% Design 2017 to support unrivalled residential and commercial design projects.

Visitors to stand L308 will be able to experience the Dimplex Optimyst effect, which has already proved popular in a variety of settings including hotels, restaurants, domestic properties and even TV and theatre productions. Using unique, patented technology, Optimyst creates a 3D illusion of real smoke and flames – an effect that truly has to be seen to be believed.

The Optimyst cassette range has been specially developed for design installations, combining the unique flame effect with installation flexibility to offer a series of cassette models in varying sizes, offering fuss-free ‘fire’ all year-round, without the heat, mess and safety concerns commonly associated with the naked flame.

Also on display is Dimplex’s Opti-V, a stunningly realistic electric flame effect which combines real fire footage displayed on a high definition LCD screen with a unique illusory technique to create the effect of flickering flames – complete with smoke and burning embers.

Both flame effects enable interior designers to deliver all the ambience of a fire in a commercial or domestic project, creating opportunities that would not otherwise be available with real flames because of safety issues or unwelcome heat.  

Jonathan Smith, flame technology product marketing manager for Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation, said: “With Dimplex’s Optimyst cassette range and Opti-V electric fires, we are able to offer interior designers a new level of choice when seeking the look and ambience of fire to their own showcase projects. These technologies offer an easy, low maintenance and safe focal point in a room, offering a unique and eye-catching illusion – perfect for prestige residential and commercial environments.”

When designers want to embrace real flame and heat, Faber’s range of premium gas fires make a statement like no other, and a feature fireplace is an ideal choice for boosting style credentials. With demand for custom-designed centrepiece fires growing, premium fireplace manufacturer Faber’s extensive MatriX range of modular gas fires offers even greater choice when designing a show-stopping fireplace.

Giving complete freedom of design, the MatriX’s modular system allows you to create a bespoke fire that matches your client's personal taste. The range covers nine variations with options of one, two or three-sided anti-reflective glass design.

For striking spatial room layouts combined with high-end contemporary interior design, look to the asymmetric construction of Faber’s Aspect Premium and Glance room divider gas fire ranges. This top-of-the-range collection offers state-of-the-art architectural possibilities, enabling you to easily separate any room into distinct areas, whilst creating a focal point for your design.

“From versatile design choice to impressive wide, see-through virtually trimless glass, Faber fires create a stunning stand out feature in any room setting. Not only special in terms of design and spectacular flame effect, the technology also delivers an environmentally-friendly fire with high efficiency, low gas consumption and clean combustion,” says Smith.

Discover more about these fire technologies on the Glen Dimplex Flame Technology Stand, L308, at 100% Design, Olympia, from 20-23rd September.
