Orion 48 See Thru Linear Gas Fireplace
Design Without Limitations
The Genesis Series have invested an immense amount of time tackling the issue of how to eliminate the need for a safety screen while still providing the safety we all desire. Additionally, they wanted the owner complete freedom to express themselves across all types of mediums.
What if you could create a fireplace wall that invokes your personality of style and freedom, the choice of textures and form that doesn’t require limited options of fireproof materials and internal design restrictions?
This was no easy feat.
With each objective comes immense design challenges that add additional base cost and construction expense. Some of the designs out there require extensive heat venting, heat dumps and intake and exhaust louvers which detract from the overall appearance.
Genesis challenged their designers to think outside the box while keeping it all within the box. They took away all the competition lines that were out there and asked them to start from the beginning.
And…the Genesis series was born.

Us vs. Them
With a lot of the competition fireplaces, they need to create an escape for the heat to vent out. To do this they leave a gap at the top of the fireplace wall or create a crown to hide the opening.
You don’t need a gap.
Your wall will not have any intake or exhaust louvers to break up the look.
No Heat Dump
There are no vents required behind the wall of the fireplace to dump the built-up heat. This will require less construction material and labour cost.
Because everything is contained within the firebox you can drywall right up to the fireplace. No special concrete board or metal studs.
Intake and Exhaust Louvers mounted below and above the fireplace
Heat Dump pipes to dissipate the heat.
Ceiling gap or gable to dissipate trapped heat from inside the walls.
