With the Premium 42-inch B-Vent fireplace, you can enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of our renowned Slope Glaze Burner. This industry-standard burner creates captivating flames by utilizing ceramic glazed pellets that gracefully tumble and swirl the gas, resulting in a lifelike and flickering fire display. Van Buren fireplaces are designed with matte black slat louvers (excluding flush front models) and operable curtain screens, ensuring both elegance and practicality.
Our B-Vent fireplace boasts hem-bent seams, which not only enhance the overall aesthetic but also provide a superior seal. By eliminating the need for numerous screws and fasteners, we have achieved a lighter and more robust construction, simplifying the installation process.
