The Opel Plus series has taken the Opel family of catalytic fireplaces to the next level. EPA certified at 0.7g/hr makes the Opel Plus one of the most advanced and cleanest units available on the market today, yet it still maintains its classic styling. In the past, Popular Science Magazine has recommended the Opel for its efficiency and reduction of emissions. Over the years this technology has only improved and been refined to make the Opel Plus what it is today.
Catalyst Care Tips:
Comfort is our specialty. We customize heat distribution from a wood fireplace throughout the home, including the basement. When the household temperature is tailored for a family at minimal cost and maximum efficiency, we call that the RSF Comfort Advantage.
Note: the central heating option is not available for the Pearl 3600, the Focus 3600 or Focus ST.
Louvers for the Opel
There are many ways you can finish your OPEL C1 fireplace. You can choose to install louvers – with or without the upper louver – louvers are available in various styles (regular black: FO-OPLB; or decorative black (FO-OPLC) or no louvers at all (FO-F3).
Opel Louver Trim
The Opel Louver Trim is a portrait style frame to cover the rough-cut edges of finishing around the opening of the upper louver on an Opel fireplace. It is not intended for use with heavy or thick finishing’s.
Gravity Vent Kit
The gravity vent kit uses natural convection to distribute the heat generated by the fireplace to the same floor and/or floors above the fireplace.
Clean Face FO-F3 + FO-V2/V3 (2X)
The Clean Face Kit is required for clean-face installations (no louvers). It includes plates that cover the louver openings and an air duct that brings air from the home into the fireplace. Gravity vents are required with this option.
Gravity Vent Damper
The Gravity Vent Damper can be installed on a louvered fireplace to add some control to the Gravity Vent (FO-V2).
Gravity Vent Kit – Rectangular
The internal blower kit will increase the circulation of heated air in the room where the fireplace is installed.
Central Heat Blower Kit
The central heat blower kit enables the distribution of heat generated by the fireplace throughout many rooms and different floors using either dedicated ducts or the house central heating ducts.
Central Heating Tee
This Tee allows you to have two Gravity Vents (FO-V2) on your fireplace and still be able to install the Central Heat option (FO-FDHB6-1).
