Cheminees Philippe: the best of both heating worlds


Cheminees Philippe have added 10 new fireplaces to their range this year, with a collection of single, double and triple sided fireplaces, featuring Cheminees Philippe’s signature dual opening design

The dual opening fireplace design allows for both a stunning traditional fireplace offering radiant heat and a wood-burning heater using convection heat to warm up your indoor or outdoor space with just a simple conversion. Glide the door up for real open warmth and ambience. Slide the door back down and it converts to efficient, energy saving, slow combustion heating efficiency and safety.

This year’s models offer the flexibility to create a multitude of stunning hearth designs and have been tested to meet the new Australian standards for efficiency, emissions and safety.

These fireplaces are also a stunning centrepiece for open plan living. The double sided fireplace can be installed on an exterior wall creating the added advantage of being an indoor/outdoor fireplace where both the interior and outdoor, alfresco area benefit from the warmth and ambience of real wood heating.
