The Passage is a ceramic fiber, direct-vent, see-through gas fireplace that features an eye-catching masonry style arch on each side, says the manufacturer. It is clean faced, which allows finishing products to be brought right up to the opening. The patent-pending electric ember bed, which operates with the fire on or off, offers a dramatic glowing appearance, states the company. Other features include the patented Flame-Out-Of-Log technology, input of 28,000 Btuh, and a sealed combustion chamber that works in a negative-pressure situation with no cold drafts. Options include brushed copper doors and remote control.
