BURNTECH See-Through Fireplace

Tradition combined with elegance, the Burntech See-Through Fireplace captures the same ambiance and beauty that has warmed homes for over 100 years.


The lightweight modular masonry construction makes installation fast and easy. Flexibility in design allows the customer freedom of choice for installation on either a concrete foundation or on wood framing**.  The BURNTECH See-Through Fireplace is designed for both indoor and outdoor use and can be fueled by either wood or gas. Typical installations can be completed in less than 1 day.

The ability to finish off your Burntech Fireplace system with genuine firebrick and patterns of your choosing is what makes Burntech the #1 choice for Contractors, Architechts and Homeowners.  In order to speed up the installation process we offer Burntech Firebrick Liner kits (sold separately) available in herringbone and standard runningbond.


As with all Burntech fireplaces, the Burntech See-Through is covered by our Lifetime Limited Warranty*.
