Glen Dimplex Opti Myst Flame Effect

Dimplex Opti myst Flame Effect

Designers on the lookout for the latest cutting-edge additions have been quick to recognise the impact that a visually striking fire centrepiece can have on buildings yet many remain reluctant to install an open fire or a wood burning stove. In a commercial setting it can throw up a myriad of health and safety concerns, whilst some fuels are subject to the Clean Air Act, putting restrictions on what you can burn.

Luckily, thanks to the continued development of electric flame and smoke effects, designers can now create the illusion of fire in their lobby, bar or even bedrooms. There is no fuss, no safety concerns and no heat - so it can be used all year round, without creating overheated spaces that rather than being welcoming actually serve to drive guests away. The Dimplex Opti-myst effect employs unique state-of-the-art, patented technology, creating the world’s most realistic 3D electric flame and smoke effect. An ultra-fine water mist is created using ultrasonic technology and as the vapour rises up through the log-effect fuel bed, the light reflects against the water creating a highly convincing yet cool, illusion of flames and smoke. The result is an appearance so authentic that it is regularly mistaken for true flames and smoke.
