This inset gas fire is available to buy alone, or as part of a complete traditional fireplace package with surround, hearth, backing plate and fire.

All Inset Gas Stoves Tested to BS7977:2013 Standard : Class 1 Energy Efficiency Rating

EFFICIENCY RATINGS: When comparing appliances tested to the old 2001 standard you should consider that these older fires can have actual efficiency ratings up to 25% less than the quoted figures when compared to a new fire tested to BS7977:2013. For instance, an old 2001 inset gas fire quoting 85% efficiency will probably be only 63% when tested to the new 2013 standard.

Our inset gas fireplaces shown below can be installed into an existing chimney or in a new build property using a vertical flue liner. If in doubt about the most cost-effective installation for your needs, call our inset gas fires UK sales team.

The BAILEY includes a special CVO gas burner design which creates a stunning flame quality. This inset fireplace has realistic fireplace logs and a visual quality to fit any aesthetic in any home. Providing the look of a real log fire with the benefit of high efficiency and the low running costs of using gas, this inset fire might be the perfect solution for your home. The fire will fit into an opening with a “maximum” size of (w) 435mm x (h) 570mm and “minimum” depth of only 126mm.

Bailey Hole In Wall Brushed Trim

Hole in the Wall Inset Gas Fire

There is also a special “Hole in the Wall” version of our inset gas stoves available. The BAILEY (Logs) can be upgraded to a contemporary version which can be mounted on the wall without a surround and hearth.

The hole in the wall trim is available in either black or brushed stainless steel. To have this installed, the fire needs to be upgraded with a new trim that covers the complete workings of the fire. The hole in the wall gas fire trim is available as an upgrade at the time of ordering – please ensure you tell the sales staff when calling that you are installing the fire as a wall mounted variant, rather than as a traditional version using a surround/hearth. To install the fire in this way the fire chamber needs to be moved from the floor, up the wall to a suitable height. The chamber must be sealed using a suitable flue box or a non-combustible material. The flue must be joined to the top of the fire chamber.

Please ensure you read the Specification Sheet for this special version.
