DRU Fires launches two new electric models for 2008
DRU Fires, the Netherlands-based manufacturer of contemporary domestic fires, has announced two new electric models for 2008.
Metro 80e frameless electric fire
The Metro 80e is an electric version of the Metro, one of the best selling DRU gas fires. It is a frameless, ‘hole-in-the-wall’ contemporary fire designed to fit either a standard or false chimney breast. It is glass-fronted, operated by remote control, and has an adjustable heat output of 2 kW, enough to heat an average sized living room.
An important feature of all DRU electric fires is the unique, realistic flame picture, generated by LED technology. With the Metro 80e there are 16 different flame height settings and up to 100,000 flame pattern variations, so the fire appears to be constantly changing. In addition, there is a deep, glowing fire bed with a choice of natural twigs or white pebbles.
The Metro 80e flame picture has an electricity consumption of just 15 watts, less than an average light bulb! Unlike ordinary electric fires, there is no need to change the bulbs periodically, as the flames are electronically produced. This makes it one of the most economical as well as attractive electric fires that are available.
The Metro 80e is being featured in a special advertising campaign in national consumer magazines from January to March 2008. All customers that buy the fire from an approved DRU dealer during this time will also be given a free MP4 Digital Player.
Jura wall-mounted electric fire
Jura is a new electric fire with a glass front and sleek alu-metallic frame. As well as being easy to install into a standard chimney breast, it can also be mounted onto any cavity or stud wall, making it the most versatile fire in the DRU Electric Collection.
Jura also features the exclusive DRU LED flame picture, has an optional 2 kW heat output, and is operated by remote control.
Metro 80e and Jura are fine additions to the DRU Electric Collection. Both fires will be available from mid January 2008.
