Classic design: lift-up door fireplace


This stylish lift-up door fireplace combines the best of both worlds when it comes to heating up your home

If you love the romance of a real open fire and the cosy warmth and efficiency of
a slow-combustion heater, you’ll love these beautifully designed cast-iron fireboxes from Cheminees Philippe. They are the benchmark when it comes to style, innovation, efficiency and performance in wood heating.

Cheminees Philippe’s advanced engineering technology and commitment to heating excellence appeals to those who desire beautiful, cost-effective heating solutions. Cheminees Philippe’s creative vision in slow-combustion/open fireplace design combines with stylish, uninterrupted lines and panoramic views of the fire.
As the world’s first designer and manufacturer of a lift-up-door fireplace, the company offers a unique dual-opening-door mechanism that provides a lifestyle choice, giving both the advantages of slow-combustion heating or the pleasure of a real open fire.

With the door closed you have the advantage of excellent damper and air control, adjusting the burn rate to create maximum, high-output, economical heating efficiency.
Or, simply slide the door up out of view and revel in the relaxed ambience and romance of an inviting open fire.
