The Sideline® series has become so popular, customers regularly ask about finding a version in a size that fits their decor or room size. Touchstones response to everyone's request, The Sideline® 40. The Sideline® 40 has a ventless design, with an opening on the face of the fireplace delivering the heat. Like all Touchstone™ fireplaces, The Sideline® 40 has the most realistic flame available in an electric smokeless fireplace, and it will leave all your friends nervous about putting their hands up to the glass face.
The Sideline® 40 is perfect for smaller walls and delivers a built-in look and ambiance that other electric fireplaces can touch. You'll have the look of a real fireplace, built right into your wall without the hassle of having to clean the unit. The Sideline® 40 has 5 flame settings and 2 heat settings, and the fireplace can be operated without the heat, so feel free to use it on a summer evening as well as on the coldest winter nights. All of your required mounting hardware is included, and Touchstone™ support is just a phone call, email or live chat away, in case you need help.
The heart of Touchstone's electric fireplaces is our exclusive, realistic flame. This flame set is so natural-looking, your friends will be nervous to touch the glass. The Sideline® 40 gives you 5 flame settings, from a quiet ember to a raging blaze, all of which can be controlled from the remote control or from the control panel on the face of the fireplace.
Yes, it does heat your room
Sure it looks great, but the Sideline® 40 will help heat your room. We don't recommend The Sideline® 40 as your primary heat source, but it can help heat a room up to 400 square feet in space with a heater that delivers 5100 BTUs. It's perfect for taking the edge off a cool evening in the fall, or for giving your room a little more cozy warmth on a frosty winter night. The Sideline® 40 can also be operated without heat, but with electric fireplace operational so you can use it on those hot summer nights.
Multiple flame colors
To create the cozy atmosphere of a traditional fireplace, this electronic unit emits authentic-looking flames that emulate a real fire. The flames that Touchstone Home Products™ fireplaces create are natural enough to have friends and family think you own a traditional wood burning fireplace.
This fireplace has three color-changing options (orange, blue, and blue-orange), along with five settings, from a soft ember glow or an intense blaze. The lighting and heating options of this fireplace offer you the ability to customize your atmosphere to your liking. With both its look and performance, Sideline® gives you the total package. Both the heat and flame settings can be operated through a remote control. (Batteries not included)
