Keeper of the flames
The new design includes all the advantages of a real fire are preserved without the risk of sparks flying thanks to the ingenious frameless sliding glass window that fits seamlessly into the hearth. This allows for a perfect view of the wood burning fire with its flickering flames, all with the added benefit of energy efficiency.
The new Glazed GYROFOCUS is compliant with all new legislation concerning wood-burning appliances coming into force early in 2022. However, FOCUS has been pushing boundaries since 2015; it has implemented the strictest regulations complying to the highest environmental levels including a four-star 4 Stelle rating in Italian environmental regulations, one of the most demanding in the world.
Despite the product challenging conventional approaches in fireplace design, the new innovation remains extremely straightforward to use. Thanks to the regulation of the air supply at the base of the opening, it is very easy to adjust the power of the fire and choose low or high intensity options. A key positioned on the duct also helps conserve the fireplace’s energy and maintain heat in the room.
More than 12 months of research and development, alongside extensive testing, were necessary to develop the Glazed GYROFOCUS whilst ensuring the original design remained intact, including its ability to pivot at 360°. FOCUS continues to impress with its technical prowess in converting its designs to newest and most advanced standards while respecting the aesthetics of its models.
The GYROFOCUS is a prestigious design created in 1968, which has become an international classic and the symbol of the brand. This model is taught in a school of architecture and was voted La Cosa Più Bella Del Mondo (the most beautiful design in the world) by Italians. It was exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The glazed GYROFOCUS now completes the GYROFOCUS collection of wood, gas and outdoor models.
