If you're looking for contemporary style and a minimal flame with a maximum impact, a linear fireplace will be a perfect fit. With a linear burner that gives the appearance of a short, wide swath of flame, and a low rectangular viewing area gives these units a more modern look and clean appearance. The majority of these fireplace are direct vent, but there are also several vent free models. Besides a more modern styling than traditional fireplaces, linear fireplaces offer the opportunity to create a more customized look. With options like fire glass, stones and even decorative log sets with some units, you'll be able to more closely match for your home's decor and your style.

What is max. width you offer in linear units for LP gas? Looking for min. 60" to 72" width. Also looking for a frame-less front design.

The unit does not require a decorative surround and uses a minimal frame to surround the glass.

In reference to the FMI Paris Lights 43" Linear Vent-Free Fireplace: Can you set it back in the wall 6 inches and surround the opening with concrete board?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on January 2, 2014
A framed enclosure may indeed be built for the Paris Lights model, and, as long as all clearances are met, you can indeed use concrete board to extend the opening out from your wall. Please see page 10 of the owner's manual for an illustrated example of a framed enclosure with the proper framing dimensions listed, which account for the clearances needed.

What is the minimum distance from the top of the opening to a tv above my fireplace?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 11, 2014
This distance is very specific to the fireplace in question, but 2 1/2 feet is usually the minimum.
