LAKEVILLE, Minn., April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Heat & Glo®, the long-established industry leader in design and technology, is extending its expertise in contemporary fireplace design outdoors with the introduction of the Palazzo series.
Available in 48-inch single-sided and see-through models, the Palazzo is a new kind of outdoor fireplace – a linear design with a clean look that provides a modern focal point in an outdoor setting. Finishing materials can go right up to the edge of the firebox opening, providing a frameless design to transform outdoor spaces.
In addition to innovative design, the Palazzo is built to withstand the elements, featuring marine-grade premium stainless steel that will maintain its luster for years to come. The outdoor-rated multi-colored LED lights shine through crushed glass and look great even when the fireplace is off.
The Palazzo also features an industry-first Power Screen that's both safe and easy to use. Unlike traditional outdoor fireplaces that use a mesh curtain or a solid stainless steel cover that can only been used when the fireplace is off, the Palazzo Power Screen operates seamlessly, moving up at the press of a button or disappearing into the wall when not in use. This innovative feature prevents debris from getting into the fireplace and can be closed while the fireplace is in use.
"The Palazzo is a reflection of what we've been hearing from homeowners – that they want to bring their outdoor spaces to life with a sophisticated contemporary look," said Bob Ballard, senior vice president of marketing for Heat & Glo. "The innovative technology and clean linear design provide a huge opportunity for homeowners to extend their living spaces beyond just the four walls of a home."
