    * Please Note: The optional conversion kit FSD-LVSTI is required to reconfigure this fireplace from single-sided to see-thru presentations. Please see Accessories tab above to purchase the conversion kit (sold separately.)

    *Also Note: This item is a vent free appliance and installation of it may be prohibited in your jurisdiction. Customers are responsible for checking local codes and regulations prior to purchase.

    *Also Note: This model is a direct replacement to the previously available FMI Paris Lights 43" Linear Vent-Free Fireplace LVF43NR.

    Making a beautiful installation even when not in use, the Superior 43" natural gas vent free fireplace features a bed of translucent embers that glow and sparkle from halogen lights beneath, creating a welcoming and soothing ambiance that perfectly fits the elegant flame jets.

    An optional adaptor kit (sold separately) transforms this fireplace from its factory-built single-sided configuration to a see-thru model that's perfect for any setting. All fireplace controls are concealed, too, meaning this beautiful fireplace is completely elegant in every situation.

    You may wish to also install this helpful optional accessory from the drop down menu: the LV43DS Linear Vent Free Draft Shield. The unit allows you to limit the amount of draft that the fireplace pulls by providing a buffer that securely attaches to the bottom of the fireplace opening. The shield is glass, so your view of the fire is not obscured. The shield kit includes all necessary hardware-the glass panel, screws, and brackets. Instructions are also included.

    What are the framing dimensions? Can it be installed directly on the floor?
    1 Answer
    Yes, this fireplace can be installed directly on the floor, and the bottom of the fireplace opening would be just over 7" from the bottom of the unit. The framing dimensions required for this model are as follows: 53.25" wide, 38" high and 17.5" deep. I have attached a diagram showing these framing dimensions as well.

    from Collierville, TN asked:
    November 17, 2017
    Does this fireplace have a glass front?
    1 Answer
    Vent free units do not have glass fronts, as this is how they obtain air needed for combustion.

    from Papillion, NE asked:
    September 24, 2017
    Can this unit be installed in an outside wall, so it can be viewed from the inside and out?
    1 Answer
    No, this model can only be used as an indoor-indoor see-thru two-sided fireplace when the see-thru conversion kit is added. However, we do offer one similar linear vent-free gas fireplace that does allow for such an indoor-outdoor configuration. Please see the Monessen Artisan Vent-Free Linear Fireplace.

    June 16, 2017
    Are you aware of any retrofitting options that can actually add a vent to it to exhaust some of the heat?
    1 Answer
    There are no retro-fitting options, but you could add a surface mount canopy hood or a mantel between the TV and opening of the fireplace to reduce the heat to your electronics.

    David
    from Jackson, OH asked:
    April 7, 2017
    We are looking to install this fireplace with a drywall look entirely surrounding the fireplace. Can we install the provided cement board then drywall over the cement board? Or, does the cement board have to have something else, such as tile or stone, on it?
    1 Answer
    The cement board is provided because that distance above the fireplace needs to be constructed with non-combustible material. Sheetrock is considered a combustible material and can not be placed in that area above. You can sheet rock only from the area where the cement board stops and above.

    David
    from Jackson, OH asked:
    April 6, 2017

    You must install the included cement board at the top and sides of this fireplace as shown on page 8 of the installation manual.

    Can this unit be installed in an exterior Ramada? The structure is 22' square with permanent roofing, but no walls on three sides. The unit would be installed into a stucco wall, be fully covered, and never be exposed to the elements.

    Richard Borst
    from Occala, Florida asked:
    January 18, 2017
    Can I hook this unit up to a small BBQ sized propane tank, or do I need the large in-ground tank?
    1 Answer
    Any indoor gas burning system should be supplied with a minimum 100 pound tank, but both the tank and gas pipe diameter needed for operating any gas hearth system we offer should be determined by a locally licensed plumber or gas fitter as these requirements will vary based on both local and national fuel gas codes.

    David
    from Boston, MA asked:
    September 30, 2014
    Does this fireplace require air from the outside? Does this fireplace include a blower? What are the dimensions (43" W x ?H x ?D) for both the fireplace and outside trim?
    1 Answer
    This unit does not require external combustion air, however it must be installed into a room that meets the volume requirements. These requirements are outlined in the manual. Because this is a smooth face model, it does not have provisions for a blower. The physical opening on this unit is 16 inches tall by 43 inches wide. The framing dimensions are 53 1/4 inches wide, 38 inches tall, and 15 1/4 inches deep. The optional decorative trims measure 58 5/8" wide x 30 9/16" tall x 1 1/8" deep.

    A nice looking firebox that is well built...
    The box came well packaged and for the most part pretty simple basic install. Quality of the metal and painting is strong. While my guess is I just got one that had a very very very small leak in the installed gas lines. it created some extra work and stress to figure out. It appeared to be a clear mistake and poor quality control where a line had a small kink. ...a very small kink and very very small leak. My guess is it did not leak when they tested but with shipping it worked loose a bit. Anyway I would still for sure say YES to this product. Other... the remote has too many buttons on it for other models where this model needs a very simple on off for flame and light... with the vary levels... but again understand the universal remote. And finally while I have not adjusted yet or tried the out of the box flame variance from high to low is more minimal than you might wish for but again there for sure is a difference and maybe it is just the way it is. Again I would buy the product again. This was my first install of this firebox and you learn and assume things that you don't know. Truth is if there was a better video or ratings/reviews or pics to see online before Purchase I would have had less assuming and more knowing.

    The fireplace arrived in a timely manner. It was packaged well and relatively easy to install. They anticipated every possible installation challenge with clear instructions.
    ProsIt heats two rooms (with conversion package) at one time and is visually stunning; you are able to look into the other room. Great price.

    Very Cool Looking Fireplace
    We just had this fireplace installed in our new construction by our builder. It hasn't been connected yet to the gas lines so we greatly anticipate its ambiance. Up to this point, I can give a 5-star for the aesthetics and for the speed it was delivered. I will return to give my overall thoughts on the whole fireplace experience in a couple of months. Thanks.
