Open Air Coziness

It’s a comforting feeling gathering around a campfire under a starry night sky. Being together in the outdoors, the crackling of the flames – the more intense the fire, the closer we are drawn to it. And it comes as no surprise that there is a trend to move the enjoyment of an open-air fire to the convenience of our own gardens and rooftop terraces. Glass-ceramic ensures that safety and coziness are part of the package.

“Outdoors” has become a mega-trend: 79% of humans hear the call of the outdoors. No matter whether it is summer or winter, night or day, or merely always. What would it be like if you could have the feeling of warmth, security and coziness of the indoors in an outdoor atmosphere? What if it could all be found in an outdoor fireplace that offers protection, yet is as open and transparent as nature itself?

It will not be long before it is possible to enjoy a closer view of an outdoor fire. That is because fire viewing panels provide protection from flying sparks, escaping flames and smoke.

Sudden rain or snow and even flying objects pose no threat to the heated panel. Glass-ceramics can withstand the demands of nature due to its mechanical and thermal properties. In fact, it has been certified by Germany’s Technical Control Association (TÜV).
