Dimplex RevillusionTM Technology Wins the Prestigious NAHB Global Innovation Award
January 12, 2017
Orlando, Florida, January 12, 2017 – Dimplex North America is excited and honored to announce that our breakthrough RevillusionTM fireplace technology has been recognized with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Global Innovation Award. Chosen by a panel of independent judges, the winning product embodies the best combination of design, functionality, innovation and usefulness for homebuilders and consumers. “We focus on designing products that add value and simplify installation for homebuilders while enhancing the ambiance and comfort of rooms for homeowners,’ says Jane Bradley, Director of Marketing, ‘so this award is such an important recognition of that goal.
Dimplex has become synonymous for having the most realistic flame in the industry and Revillusion is pushing the category forward again by blurring the lines between electric and combustion fireplaces. Revillusion offers building construction and design professionals the ability to offer their clients luxury as a standard, while achieving the efficiency demands of Net-Zero Construction and regional clean air programs across the nation.
The unique ThruViewTM Design lets you look through the flames to the back of the fireplace, which doubles the visible depth and dramatically changes the overall authenticity. Revillusion Built-in Electric Fireboxes offer unprecedented depth, stunning realism day or night, and customization that allow each individual to tailor the fireplace experience to their unique personality. There is no easier or more versatile way to turn a vision for a custom fireplace into reality, simply frame the firebox, connect the electrical supply and finish. With no combustion, there is no venting or safety clearance to worry about so virtually any surround material or location is possible. The choice to plug in the firebox using the optional plug kit or hardwire to 120 or 240-volt electrical supply can be made based on the installation and heating needs.
“Our hope is that this award encourages builders to take a fresh look at the unique benefits of Dimplex electric fireplaces. There really is no easier and more cost-effective way for homebuilders and renovators to add a dramatic focal point to their projects than with a Dimplex electric fireplace. And the realism of Revillusion is truly astonishing so they can feel confident that their customers will be impressed with the finished product,” says Bradley.
