GCUF/GRUF SERIES VENT FREE GAS FIREBOX

The GRUF/GCUF series fireboxes provide the option to choose a louvered design or a radiant, clean face design. Choose from a selection of firebrick options and accessories for a fireplace perfectly suited to your tastes. 

The G(C/R)UF series of vent free fireboxes from Monessen offers flexibility with 3 sizes - 32, 36, and 42 inches - and the option of circulating or radiant design to suit your requirements perfectly.

Available with your choice of firebrick as well as a range of optional accessories, the G(C/R)UF series is easy to incorporate into your design requirements.

It has all the features that you certainly need in order to suit all of your preferences quickly and conveniently. It is also available along with your choice of firebrick including the range of other optional accessories. Among the key features of this item includes zero clearance design for straightforward installation and convenience while doing so.

A Monessen vent free firebox is the perfect way to display and operate your Monessen vent free log set. While our log sets can be utilized in an existing approved wood-burning fireplace (converted with a gas line), if your home does not already have an existing fireplace, a vent free firebox is an economical way to add a fireplace to your home. Installed in either your wall or a free-standing cabinet, a vent free firebox is simply the metal combustion chamber of a traditional fireplace system, without the log set and engine. You then add the vent free log set (with engine) of your choice to complete it.

Monessen offers one of the most diverse lineups of vent free gas fireboxes available, making it easy to find the right look for your home. Enjoy beautiful flames, excellent heating, and a customized look with the addition of your choice of Monessen log sets.

Because vent-free fireboxes and log sets are designed to be installed and operated without a chimney, flue, or vent, they can be installed in locations in your home where it would be impossible or cost-prohibitive to install a vented fireplace. They provide the most economical installation, only requiring a connection to a gas line.

Monessen vent free fireboxes allow for zero clearance installation, which means they may be installed flush against any combustible surface such as drywall or wood. This gives you added flexibility and helps save installation dollars when deciding where to install your fireplace, whether on an interior or exterior wall. (It is important to remember that the appliance should be sized to fit the area in which it is to be installed and must meet any additional regional or local requirements.

Monessen offers a large selection of vent-free log sets (sold separately) that are a perfect complement to your new fireplace. 

GCUF/GRUF Series Vent Free Circulating Gas Fireboxes are available in 32", 36", and 42" sizes with Refractory & Cottage Clay Firebrick standard.

                    • Researched and ordered my fireplace from US FIreplace Store. Pricing was a fair value however, the customer service was EXCELLENT! I had an issue with the direct vent venting. I called US Fireplace and the correct items were sent out the next day AND Janessa stayed on top of my return authorization and sent me the permissions and documents I needed to return the incorrect item and no cost to me, including return shipping. Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and my fireplace looks and operates flawlessly. I am glad that I selected US FIreplace to source my direct vent fireplace. Thank you for the great service.

                    • I had placed an order, through Lowe's Home Improvement, for an Electric Firebox: Revillusion RBF42. Ordered 1st part of January. Was told I would have it in 3 weeks. When checking to see is it came in, was told it was delayed to 3/15. Was then told is was delayed until 4/25. Waited until 4/27 to check on it. Was then told it was now delayed until August. This firebox was going in a new Sun Room addition. I could not get my final inspection until the Firebox was installed. I went on line and googled for this same product. US Fireplace Store web site was given to me. This was on a Saturday. I call and reached a very nice man. Explain what I was look for. He checked and told me they had 30 of them in stock. I almost fell out of my chair. I clarified with him the product I was wanting. I ask how soon could I get it. He told me it would ship today. Again, was amazed. It arrived on the following Monday. What a pleasure and a relief working with US Fireplace Store and their employees. Exceed my expectations.

                    • Great prices, quick delivery and fast hassle free services on the issue I encountered. I had purchased an electric fireplace unit that would not fit into the existing fireplace space. With one email I was able to get the wrong fireplace refunded and picked up at my home at no extra cost and the new one I purchased and delivered free of charge. Great company.
