Ortal fireplaces are one of the industry’s most elite brands. They offer both catalog models and the ability to fully customize a fireplace. They are interior designer’s and architect’s preferred fireplace manufacturer for commercial and large residential projects.
As of January 2015, new safety guidelines were announced for all direct vent gas fireplaces that require a safety barrier be installed in front of all glass viewing areas. Ortal was one of the first manufacturers to create a double glass enclosure that met these new guidelines. Ortal utilizes a series of blowers inside their fireplaces that move air between the double glass panels. This cools the outer glass temperature to meet the new requirements. This heat barrier solution also allows to hang a TV or artwork within one foot above the fireplace opening.
