With an increasing emphasis on energy conservation and efficiency, the modern home is becoming a balancing act between competing requirements. Open-fronted fires look best, but are not efficient. Glass-fronted fires are efficient, but tended to look inauthentic. Platonic have developed a new range of gas fires addressed at overcoming these limitations but retaining the style and classical simplicity of their other products. Our aim is to provide energy efficient fires for the 21st century.

Balanced flue fireplaces
A balanced flue fire operates through the use of an enclosed combustion chamber. Combustion air is drawn into the chamber through a concentric flue system that combines inlet and outlet air movement and works on natural draught. The fireplaces are glass fronted, and can be located on external or internal walls as required. Typically, the fires are up to 75% efficient in energy consumption.
