The Abbot gas inert by Sierra Flame

The Abbot 36IN – Direct Vent Insert

Just like that little black dress that goes with everything, the Abbott’s direct vent fireplace insert is understated sophistication with a no fuss contemporary design.

With it’s impressive glass viewing area, the Abbot is available in Deluxe and Premiere systems that offer you superior flame and heat control. Each unit comes with the standard black porcelain panels, black reflective glass and a 9 piece rock set. For a more traditional look try the optional ceramic brick panels and log set. Comes standard to run on natural gas but also available for liquid propane use.

The Sierra Flame Advantage

All Sierra Flame units are manufactured with the highest quality parts available, from the smallest component to the 18-20 gauge body and stainless steel burner. Our units are designed for ease of installation and servicing and our focus is on keeping the styles fresh and current. As well, our realistic and exceptionally large flame is a noticeable feature that sets us apart from the competition. Our standard units include upgrades that would be costly add-ons with other suppliers like the remote control, quality fire glass media and decorative rock set. We offer to you a finely tuned selection of units — focusing on quality not quantity and hope that you choose a Sierra Flame fireplace to enjoy for years to come!
