Escea DX High Efficiency Multiroom Fireplaces (Gas)

Barry Stewart Gas & Plumbing Ltd

The DX Fire represents the most sophisticated, ultra-wide fireplace on the market between its hi-tech features, design flexibility and simplistic beauty. It is available in two sizes the DX1500 and the DX1000.

The dramatic width of the flame pattern becomes an even more spectacular statement with Escea’s double sided see-through fireplace option. The DX captures up to 90% of the available heat and returns it back into every corner of the room via Escea’s Multiroom Technology. Some of this heat can even be ducted into the hallway or into other rooms in the home, making the DX a whisper-quiet and environmentally conscious home heating choice.

Our unique Multiroom Technology pushes the warmth of the fireplace to the farthest reaches of a room, boosting the efficiency and heat output of the DX Series fireplaces.

The ducts transport the heated air from the fire through the ceiling or floor ducts to the outlets located either within the same room or throughout the house. The Heat Ducting system is so flexible that the fireplace can be placed almost anywhere, offering unlimited installation options.


The EW5000 adds a dramatic focal point to any outdoor entertaining area, while its large cooking surface allows you to enjoy BBQ cooking the way it was meant to be done.

For long life, Escea constructed the firebox of high quality 4mm thick steel. This outdoor barbecue fire needs to be enclosed in non-combustible masonry, stone, concrete or brickwork. Escea can provide a ready-to-build steel frame enclosure (KSE) which can be finished with a suitable fireproof material of your choice.

The EW5000 outdoor wood fire can be installed with or without the Stainless Steel Ferro fascia. The fascia-less look gives a more traditional option and can be installed flush or recessed into your non-combustible fire surround.

The DF model fireplace is available to two sizes, the DF700 and DF960.

With the Direct Vent Power Flue Technology this fire can be installed into a timber framed cavity for a more modern look in a new build home.

This more compact fire is designed to retrofit into existing fire cavities in an older house, and they look equally good with the fire surrounds or the old style mantlepiece.


Outdoor Gas Fireplace

The EF5000 is a great fire when situated outside the home on a patio or deck when entertaining guests or just relaxing with a good book.

It has a zero-clearance rating and can be installed into either a masonry or a timber framed cavity and comes with an electronic ignition feature.

This fire does not require a flue because it is an open fronted fire and you have the choice of either a stainless-steel fascia or a volcanic black fascia to suit your décor.
