Heat & Glo®, the long-established industry leader in design and technology, is extending its expertise in modern fireplace design outdoors with the introduction of the Palazzo series.
Available in 48-inch single-sided and see-through models, the Palazzo is a new kind of outdoor fireplace – a linear design with a clean look that provides a modern focal point in an outdoor setting. Finishing materials can go right up to the edge of the firebox opening, providing a frameless design to transform outdoor spaces.
In addition to innovative design, the Palazzo is built to withstand the elements, featuring marine-grade premium stainless steel that will maintain its luster for years to come. The outdoor-rated multi-colored LED lights shine through crushed crystal and can even be used when the fireplace is off.
The Palazzo also features an industry-first remote control-powered screen that’s both safe and easy to use. Unlike traditional outdoor fireplaces that use a manually-operated mesh curtain, the Palazzo screen is seamlessly operated via remote control, moving up at the press of a button or disappearing into the wall when not in use. Further, the remote allows homeowners to open or close the screen, which prevents debris from getting into the fireplace and can be closed while the fireplace is in use, without leaving their seat.
“The Palazzo is a reflection of what we’ve been hearing from homeowners – that they want to bring their outdoor spaces to life with a sophisticated modern look,” said Bob Ballard, senior vice president of marketing for Heat & Glo. “The innovative remote technology and clean modern design provide a huge opportunity for builders to extend their work beyond just the four walls of a home, leading to happier customers and more profitability.”
The Palazzo is expected to be available in summer 2015, with an estimated MSRP starting at $4,999. At the International Builders’ Show, visit booth #C6116 to see the Palazzo in action.
