    Optional Accessories:

    Rigid Firescreen

    The Rigid Firescreen allows you to burn wood in the fireplace insert with the door open just like an old-time fireplace. Hear the crackle of the wood, watch the flames dance around in the firebox and relax around the wood insert on a cold winter's night. The Rigid Firescreen is easy to install and easy to remove when you are ready to load more wood. The fireplace insert should not be burning with the door open without the firescreen.

    130CFM Blower with Variable Speed Control (Thermodisc included)

    Add the optional 130 CFM blower to enhance the overall heating performance of the stove. The blower comes with a thermodisc that will turn the blower on when the stove gets up to temperature and will also turn the blower off once the stove has cooled down. You will not have to worry about hearing the blower, the fan is extremely quiet.
