The Quadrafire Edge 60 pellet fireplace is designed for homes where no fireplace existed before. Similar to a fireplace insert, but larger, the Edge 60 can be fitted almost anywhere in the house that allows for venting.
Either a false chimney breast can be built into the room, which does not have to extend to the ceiling, or what's called a 'chase' can be built onto the outside of the house to fit the fireplace flush with an internal wall. Think of both these solutions as a kind of cupboard specially built to house this pellet fireplace.
Venting can then proceed as normal for a pellet stove. When building a chase, some thought should be given to access for vent cleaning and maintenance.
To provide access for cleaning and maintenance, the Quadrafire Edge 60 is fitted with rails that allow the fireplace to slide out of its enclosure.
It has the 'auto clean' firepot, (see below), and a decorative cast iron fireback. It will also run on twelve volt supply if a power outage occurs, using the optional battery cable.
Available with four different decorative fronts, and optional colour schemes, the Edge 60 has a large viewing window and a 120 pound hopper - big enough to heat for up to seven days without refilling.
The Quadrafire Edge 60 is a powerful unit, capable of 60,000 btu.'s and will heat at least 2,400 square feet of living space. It will burn standard or premium grade pellets, shelled corn, wheat and black sunflower seeds. The type of fuel being used is set using the wall thermostat supplied as standard
