For increased safety, most of Ortal’s fireplaces are available with an optional double glass enclosure with a thin ventilation layer in between. Air flows through the ventilation layer created by small fans located at the bottom of the fireplace. This ensures the outer glass layer’s temperature is significantly reduced to comply with the latest regulations. Although still hot to the touch, it is safe. This is an ideal solution for public spaces or families with young children. Another benefit of the Double Barrier is that it transforms the radiant heat from the fire to ambient heat.
Ortal is proud introduce it’s new protective screen that significantly reduced the risk of burns caused by touching the fireplace’s glass. The screen protects direct contact with the glass enclosure, enabling the fireplace to be placed in locations where higher levels of safety is required, such as public spaces and/or where small children are present. The protective screen is almost undetectable and does not diminish or change your view of the flames. This patent-pending technology (USSN 60/040,074) provides you with a complete, convenient solution that complies with today’s stringent regulations.
Another option is Ortal’s Double Barrier, which also prevents the glass from overheating.
