Two Sided Bioethanol Fireplace Double Sided Fire Designs

There are a very limited number of two sided bio ethanol fireplace designs available to buy “off the shelf”. The ones that are currently available are shown below, these include different sizes of bioethanol burner tray and and widths. As can be seen from the product images the unit is supplied as a complete package that is built around. This makes designing, building and finishing the final bioethanol fireplace design easier to plan. In most cases you will build a combination of brick and stud walling around the unit to complete the final look of a double sided fireplace. Installing double sided fires is a great way to divide a large living space creating a feature fireplace between two rooms.

Double sided bioethanol fireplaces, or two sided fires as they are also known are popular in large contemporary properties and are often seen in commercial properties like hotels, bars and restaurants. This makes the fire a big feature in the room. You may have seen similar designs to this in many TV programs and Movies where there is a contemporary room design, fairly large and there is a fireplace centrally located with a dancing ribbon of flame. See the image below for a typical installation of a double sided fireplace.


Ensure that you read the manufacturers instructions on how to build the stud wall around the unit to ensure it has the required clearances and is built from the correct materials.

About Two Sided Bio Ethanol Fireplaces

With a two sided bioethanol fireplace design, sometimes referred to as a double sided bioethanol fire, you are able to view the bioethanol burner insert from two different sides of either a dividing wall or a column within a room.

As can be seen from the image, these two sided bioethanol fires are supplied as a unit that would have a false wall type construction built around. The choice of materials etc for this is very important as they should comply to the existing building regulations for fire retardancy and clearance to combustible materials. Depending on the current situation on site it may be also possible to build in the unit across two rooms.

The example in the image shows the outer metal casing, or enclosure and the bioethanol burner unit in situ. This unit also has glass screens. This is an important consideration on a 2-sided fireplace as air can blow from side to side affecting the flame. A disturbed flame may be a fire risk but will also mean the fuel burns faster. In some two sided ethanol fires one side is completely glass with access from the other side. This eliminates the air movement issue but can also be a way to isolate how the heat is transmitted.

Bespoke and Custom Designs.

There are limited, off the shelf, two sided bio ethanol fires that can be bought online. Most are custom made. A two sided bioethanol fireplace can be a great addition to a contemporary room setting. Personally, I have designed many two sided bioethanol and gas fireplaces which have been installed in both domestic and commercial properties around the world. Today, I only work on major projects. If you have a requirement for a one off fireplace contact me with your plans.

There are many standard bioethanol burners, including the higher specification, remote control bioethanol burners, and these can be combined with one of many single and double sided standard enclosures or with a completely custom made enclosure. This could be for indoor or outdoor use, but mainly these are large contemporary bio fires that are best suited to large living rooms or for use in commercial properties like a Hotel lobby. Some companies sell just the standard ethanol burner trays however this then presents a number of problems to the buyer like how it will be installed safely and how it is presented in a final bioethanol fireplace design.

The bioethanol burner must then be used in a fireplace opening that is designed so that it is safe and ensure clearances to combustible materials. If the budget is significant, and the project is realistic, it is best to engage a company who can take the whole project forward from design to installation.  Some of the bioethanol burners on the market are sold as standard products but there are other companies who will offer a full bespoke design service working with an architect and installer to provide a custom made, one off, bespoke ethanol fireplace. This is where I may be able to help.

Why Change to a BioEthanol Fireplace?

There are number of positives to look at when considering your next fireplace purchase. Buying a Gas, Electric or Wood Burning fireplace from a retailer may involve complicated installation work that can be costly and, especially in the case of wood there are issues over storage of the fuel and the mess caused by the ash. Also, apart from the electric fire, a gas or wood burning fire will need a chimney, something that a lot of modern houses do not have. Did you know that bioethanol flueless fire designs do not need a chimney or flue system to be used? This means they are perfect for new, modern homes. They are also a great solution for older homes that have a faulty chimney that needs to be repaired. Or you may be looking to block up or remove an existing chimney to reduce your heating bills. Either way, flueless bioethanol fireplaces are a great, cost effective heating solution for a room where secondary heat is required. They are also good for the environment, unlike burning gas or coal. That is why it is best to look at the options and guides that are shown on the website before making a decision on your next fireplace purchase. Choose a flueless fire, or if you like a, no chimney fire, that uses clean burning bioethanol fuel.
