Classic elegance and modern performance
Behind the elegantly shaped doors of the Opel burns a fire that reflects the traditions of our ancestors. Yet this is no ordinary fire. This fire yields low emissions, overnight burns, and efficiency on par with most basement furnaces. The patented technologies used in the Opel give you the peace of mind that your fireplace burns a renewable energy source in a beautiful and environmentally responsible way.
This fireplace is certified for use with 7″ ICC Model EXCEL chimney only.
