The unique Loft Series Fireplace includes a Loft burner in a compact system. This versatile unit installs as a zero-clearance vent-free fireplace or as an insert in an existing fireplace.
Rated at 20,000 Btu input for the VFL20 and 28,000 for the VFL28, the 99-percent efficient Loft Fireplace will quickly warm your living space - and grab your attention. A special 10,000 Btu model is also available for bedroom applications, where allowed by local codes.
Choose the Millivolt system and select one of seven control options – from a simple wall switch to a thermostat remote to the ultimate programmable remote. Or choose the Intermittent Pilot system, which includes a variable flame-height remote control with integral thermostat.
Finish your fireplace installation with one of Empire’s two distinctive decorative fronts. The ultra-clean frameless tempered glass front features rounded and polished edges and a silk screened black border. With its minimally visible hardware, the glass pane “floats” in front of the fireplace.
For a more traditional look, choose the simple, elegant black metal frame with glass panel. This four-sided frame, with its 1 3/4-inch depth, provides the perfect transition to drywall, tile, or other material.
Installed as an insert, your Loft system will require the three-sided decorative surround. Like the four-sided frame, this surround measures 1 3/4-inch deep and makes a clean transition from an existing fireplace. To help conceal a large hearth opening, Empire also offers a 48 x 36-inch shroud, for use in conjunction with the decorative surround.
