Featuring clean lines, a muted black finish, and an elegant linear burner, the Empire Boulevard SL Ventless Gas Fireplace is just what you need to add sophisticated drama to your modern living space! The linear burner is placed between a tempered glass front and rear matte black panel for high-definition contrast and a striking flame presentation. A fine mesh screen barrier covers the front to protect against accidental contact with the fire, keeping you and your loved ones safe.
The Empire Boulevard SL Ventless Gas Fireplace features an electronic intermittent pilot ignition system, an On/Off wall switch, and battery back-up for convenient use during power outages. Upgrade from the On/Off switch to a wall thermostat, remote control thermostat, or programmable remote control. The electronic intermittent pilot ignition includes a state-of-the-art safety pilot system, which will shut off the gas supply if the flame ever goes out, along with an Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) to continuously monitor the CO2 levels in the room. The ODS will shut off the fireplace if the oxygen supply dips below the safe threshold.
The Boulevard SL is sized to fit into a stud-framed wall and conceals its valve and control module below the burner. Openings in the casing allow you to route the gas supply below, through the side, or out the back of the fireplace. Three installation options - recessed, partially recessed, and surface-mount - give you the flexibility to choose the location that best fits your space and desired aesthetic.
Recessed Installation: With only a 5.5-inch depth, the Boulevard SL can be fully installed in a 2 x 6 stud-framed wall. You can place tile or stone up to the rectangular opening to create a beautiful, clean-faced look. The optional trim kit finishes the opening, hiding the tile or stone edges, and adjusts from 1/2 to 1-inch depths. Recessed installations require installing the included non-combustible material above and to the sides of the fireplace, and tile or stone up to the fireplace opening.
Partially Recessed Installation: The Boulevard SL can be installed partially in a 2 x 4 stud-framed wall and finished with one of two fronts. Partially recessed installations require installing the included non-combustible material above the fireplace and a Mitered Decorative Front.
Surface-Mount Installation: Hang the Boulevard SL like a framed picture on any wall – including brick, stone, or conventional drywall – and finish it with a decorative front. Surface-Mount installation requires a Mitered Decorative Front and Fireplace Wrap.
