Seaside apartments select DRU Scenic fires to match scenic views
Chapman Sands is an exclusive development of 8 modern apartments on the seafront at fashionable Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex. Built by local company, Elmore Contractors, the apartments offer a comfortable lifestyle with luxurious kitchens, bathrooms and the very latest audio-visual appliances.
It was not possible to construct chimneys in the property due to sound restrictions, but the solution came in the form of balanced flue gas fires from DRU. The DRU Scenic Slimline fire has been chosen in order to create the illusion of a real fire, complete with replica chimney and realistic log fire.
Like all DRU gas fires, Scenic Slimline is glass-fronted and operated by remote control. It has a heat output of 5 kW, enough to heat a larger than average living room. The 3 sided log fire display fills the room with a warm and comfortable glow. And because the fire is room sealed, drawing air from outside the building for combustion, it is both healthy and efficient.
DRU produces a range of over 30 different fires. As well as balanced flue models, there are conventional flue gas fires that can be fitted to a standard chimney, electric fires, fireplace suites and traditional wood and coal burning stoves. They are available from a national network of exclusive fireplace retailers.
Commenting on the choice of DRU Fires, Elmore’s technical director, Nick Elmore said:
All of the appliances fitted in these apartments are of a luxury standard and the DRU Scenic fires are no exception. We chose them because they perfectly complimented the design of the accommodation and, because of the balanced flue system, made the installation technically possible.
