The MPLDV, a direct-vent gas fireplace with clean-face louverless design, is part of the Merit™ Plus Series of fireplaces. According to the company, the fireplaces have the look and feel of traditional masonry fireplaces. Unique to this new line is a 30-inch size that allows for increased installation and spacing flexibility. The line also comes in the standard 35-, 40-, and 45-inch sizes. The direct-vent fireplaces feature large, expansive openings for individuals to watch radiant flames on a detailed, realistic log set. Additional accessories include a pull-screen front panel kit, paned arch or square louverless StyleView™ door panels, and fixed-screen panel options.
