Empire VFSL30FP70 Boulevard SL Vent-Free Low-Profile Linear Fireplace

This unique clean-burning fireplace features an elegant linear burner mounted between a matte-finished black full panel at the rear and a short tempered-glass deflector panel at the front.  Aided by multiple reflections through the glass in front, the Boulevard SL creates high-definition contrast between the flames and the black panel.  With its clean lines and muted black finish, the Boulevard SL represents the last word in contemporary styling.

Designed to add drama and ambiance to any room, the vent-free Boulevard SL can serve as an effective zone heater when needed, and uses room air for combustion and delivers 99.9% of the available heat energy directly to the room. Rated at 14,000 BTUs for Natural Gas and 12,000 BTUs for Propane, the Boulevard SL easily maintains a comfortable temperature for up to 417 square feet. This vent-free system is equipped with a state-of-art safety pilot burner to turn off gas to the system if the flame is extinguished, plus an Oxygen Depletion Sensor to continuously monitor CO2 levels. A fine mesh screen across the front protects against accidentally touching the flames. The 10,000 BTUs version is ideal for bedrooms (where allowed by code).

Every Boulevard SL includes an electronic intermittent ignition system that eliminates the standing pilot to help you save energy and money. An included battery back-up allows the unit to operate during a power outage. The fireplace ships with an on/off wall switch to mount outside the fireplace or upgrade to an optional wall thermostat, remote control thermostat, or even a programmable remote.

Sized to fit in a stud wall, the Boulevard SL conceals its valve and control module below the burner. Openings in the casing let you route the gas supply from below, the side, or the back.

Includes:

  • Non-combustible Board (for full or partially recessed installation)
  • On-Off Wall Switch with 10-ft Extension Wire
  • Battery Backup with 10-ft Extension Wire
  • Fine Mesh Barrier Screen

Three installation options allow for the most versatility: 

Recessed Installation
At just 5 1/2 inches deep the Boulevard SL is the first vent-free fireplace that can install fully in a 2 x 6 stud-framed wall. Add tile right up to the rectangular opening to create a stunningly beautiful, amazingly efficient clean-face fireplace.  The optional trim kit finishes the opening and adjusts for different depths of tile or stone. Recessed installation requires installing the included non-combustible material above and to the sides  of the fireplace, and tile or stone to the fireplace opening. The optional trim kit hides tile edges, and adjusts from 1/2 to 1 inch. ( Narrow Trim (DFSL30PBL) is not required for the fully recessed installation, but helps dress out the fireplace opening. Adjusts from 1/2 to 1 inch depth)

Partially Recessed Installation
In a 2 x 4 framed wall, the Boulevard SL can install, partially in the wall and finish with one of two fronts. Partially recessed installation requires installing included non-combustible material above fireplace, and a Mitered Decorative Front (DFSL30MBL).
 
Surface-Mount Installation
With the available fireplace wrap, the Boulevard SL can be hung like framed art on any wall – including brick, stone, or conventional drywall – and finished with a decorative front. Surface-Mount installation requires a Mitered Decorative Front (DFSL30MBL) and a Fireplace Wrap (DCSL30BL).
