Escea Feature: Heritage Hero or Modern Muse

Heritage Hero or Modern Muse.

The grand height of the DF990 makes it ideal for the high ceilings of a heritage home, but with its minimalist frame that sits flush with the wall, the DF990 also makes for a striking modern installation.  

Escea Feature: Ember Glow

Ember Glow.

The Logs Fuelbed is a highlight of the DF Series – smouldering embers glow underneath stacked logs, adding depth and realism to the fire bed and flame pattern.

Escea Feature: Suitable for Retrofit

Suitable for Retrofit.

These fireplaces have been designed for those who want to replace a traditional open-fronted fireplace with a modern and highly efficient fireplace.  The DF Series gas fires can be installed in a timber-framed cavity, or in a brick chimney using flexi-flue extensions.

Walk into Warmth.

Escea Smart Heat connects your fire to your home network and gives you control of your fireplace from your smartphone. Whether you’re driving home from work on a cold winter’s night, or just relaxing on the couch…the perfect temperature is only a swipe away.

Design Freedom.

Escea’s Powered Direct Vent Flue uses efficient fan technology to heat the room but not the flue. The system also allows the flue to run up, down, and even horizontally - giving you the design flexibility to put your fireplace anywhere.

Escea Feature: Room Sealed Design

Room Sealed Design.

Escea indoor fireplaces are all glass-fronted with power flueing, so the room air and the firebox air do not mix. This not only helps with heat efficiency, it also makes them airtight and safe from fumes. Giving you a dry and healthy home, with complete peace of mind.

Frame your Fire 

Transform your living room with the old-world charm of a traditional fireplace surround, but with all the benefits of a modern gas fire.

Constructed from MDF, the mantel is ready to fix and easy to install. It comes with a white undercoat finish, and requires just a light sand and top coat of paint to create your desired look.

The DF990 and Peter Wolfkamp’s home renovation

Peter Wolfkamp is well known for his handy-work as resident builder on The Block NZ.  When he set out to transform a run-down villa in Auckland’s seaside suburb of Devonport it was with one important goal, to make it everything that Kiwi homes are not – warm, dry and comfortable.

After discovering an original brick fireplace, he engaged Escea to work with him in finding the right fireplace to fit into the existing surround. 

The Huis Project: Why Peter chose the Escea DF990

When it came to choosing a fireplace model, Peter chose the Escea DF990 gas fireplace.

Boasting an extended height, it was perfect for high ceilings found in heritage homes like Peter's. Most importantly, it was retrofittable and fit beautifully into the existing brick fireplace surround he had fallen in love with.
