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!
