The Hearth Cabinet™ is a ventless fireplace system that burns a patent pending alcohol fuel cartridge. With Hearth Cabinet™, it is possible for any residence or commercial site to feature the warm glow of a real, crackling fire. The ventless fireplaces are said to be 100% safe and eco-friendly. They are available in traditional and contemporary standard modular designs that fit any style surround or mantel. You don’t need a gas line or a chimney and it does not use electricity. There is a real flame but there is no smoke. To light a fire you open the lock on the patent pending safety door, insert the cartridge into the holder and light it with a long match or BBQ lighter. You get a beautiful golden yellow fire without smoke that lasts about two hours. When the fire is out you can recycle the metal cartridge. The system comes with a snuffer plate so you can put the fire out at any time.
