Cambridge, Ontario --- Consumers seeking to pair the tranquil, peaceful atmosphere that a fireplace provides with modern décor will be delighted with Dimplex North America's unique glass ember bed firebox. The company has introduced a number of fireboxes with glass ember beds in a variety of sizes. The units represent contemporary alternatives to the traditional log-inspired versions, yet offer the same tranquil ambiance in the form of their soothing warmth and captivating flame. The fireboxes are available in a wide selection of mantel styles and media console designs to ensure that every consumer will find the model that best suits their style and décor needs.

The unique glass ember bed firebox features the same Dimplex patented life-like flame effect as the realistic log style, but with one dramatic difference. Rather than logs and a flickering ember bed, these contemporary fireboxes use a luminous bed of crushed glass to provide a striking, refreshing alternative to tradition. The ember bed is made from layers of asymmetrical sized glass pieces which are silvered on one side. These pieces are illuminated from below and refract and reflect the light, resulting in a warm glow that is both contemporary and enchanting.

A glass ember bed firebox makes a statement in any room, serving as a perfect focal point or accent. Whether featured as part of a media console, a mantel, or a space-saving wall mount unit, the unique glowing glass ember bed adds a warm, sophisticated element to any modern space. All units are supplied with a handy remote control for chair-side convenience.

Just like an actual fire, these innovative fireboxes are not only attractive, but are functional as well. Any one of them can take the chill off a room with its powerful fan-forced electric heater and can play a role in a zone heating strategy to save on home heating costs. Unlike a combustion fire, users can enjoy the magic of dancing flames with or without the heat so the fireplace can be used even on warm days or in warmer climates.

Because Dimplex electric fireplaces require no complicated installation, piping or venting, they can be installed anywhere, and the glass ember bed firebox is no exception. It's ideal for use wherever a dramatic focal point or comforting accent is desired. This versatility means that even apartment and condominium dwellers can easily add the soothing warmth and sophistication of this firebox to enhance their décor.

Consumers will also appreciate the ease of use and efficiency that these fireboxes provide. Their safe, clean electric operation means that they are easy on the environment with their small carbon footprint. These units plug into any standard 120V household outlet. Operation of the firebox is very economical; average operating costs are approximately three cents per hour with the flame operating without heat and approximately eight cents per hour with the heater running.

The glass ember bed fireboxes can be seen on display at Dimplex Booth #4074 at the HPB Expo at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah on March 3 - 5, 2011.
