This wall mount electric fireplace offers the classic size of a fireplace without a reflective glass front, resembling a wood-burning fireplace with the convenience of an electric fireplace.

As part of the renowned Sideline Electric Fireplace collection, the Forte Steel Mesh Screen model includes easy flush mount installation, a built-in heater, and realistic 3-color LED flames.

The Forte Steel showcases a lifelike flame display that rivals a gas burning fireplace. Powered by energy-efficient LED bulbs, it creates a relaxing ambiance. The cool-to-touch metal screen front adds an extra layer of safety.

The Forte Steel Mesh Screen Electric Fireplace provides supplemental warmth for rooms up to 400 square feet. The built-in 5000 BTU heater offers high and low heat settings for your comfort.

The Forte Steel comes with both glass crystals and a faux log set, allowing you to personalize the style.

The Forte Steel is designed for wall mount installation and provides mounting options on the back or sides. Straightforward installation instructions are included.

Maintain a minimum clearance of 8 inches between the Forte Steel Electric Fireplace and the ceiling or a mounted flat-screen television for safety.

Simple, easy-to-follow installation and mounting instructions are included.

We recommend placing your Forte Steel at least 8 inches below your ceiling or 8 inches below your mounted flat screen television for safe clearance from the heater.
