The elegant VEL140 is the largest landscaped styled fire in the range. The VEL140 is designed to be positioned beautifully into integrated walls or retrofitted into existing chimneys. Like the VEL75 and VEL90 this appliance comes as panoramic but can be transformed to front facing or as a corner appliance.
The VEL75 is a portrait styled inset fire, its ideal for combining with a variety of fireplace mantels to create a truly unique focal point to your living space. The large glass-fronted fire allows an unrestricted view of beautiful flames. To make a real statement, this fire can be transformed into a corner or panoramic appliance.
These stunning appliances are the ultimate home investment and are available in wall mounted or floor standing options. All the appliances will come as panoramic as standard but can be transformed to front facing or corner right and left with the use of a conversion kit which is included in the fire at no extra cost making it one of the most versatile on the market.
Alongside the new appliances we have created a range of new wall mounted and floor standing modular components. The highly versatile elements can be mixed and matched to create a truly bespoke design. From modern to traditional, the fire surrounds are designed to suit a variety of room settings.
Andrew Mulligan Managing Director said “The introduction of the E-Line to the Vision brand was driven by a significant gap in our portfolio and from retailer demand based on the success of the Vision Trimline range. The additions of the VEL75 complement our extensive range of mantels whilst the VEL140 provides a stunning structured landscape appliance.
In addition to the modular furniture the collection now offers a chimney breast kit designed exclusively to fit our VEL90 and VEL140 electric fires. It offers a quick and simple solution to create a Scandinavian style, floating chimney breast. All parts are produced using state of the art machinery to ensure accuracy and quality. The build concept has been cleverly designed to make installation as quick and simple as possible.
John Humphreys Sales Director added “our new modular elements offer the ultimate flexible approach by allowing customers to build their fireplace to their exact specification. Ultimately, you need to experience the range to truly appreciate its qualities. I have personally installed the kit at a number of showrooms and I was amazed with the simplicity and speed of the installation. You can view the range at our showroom at our Head Office in Farnworth or at Grangemouth. If you can’t make it to our showroom you can download our brochure at visionfires.co.uk.”
