The Forte Electric Fireplace offers the same recessed-wall install as our popular Sideline Electric Fireplace, but with a narrower and taller flame display at 31" wide x 17" tall, all in a streamlined design. 

Product Highlights

  • Designed with front heating vent so that the unit can be flush mounted into wall
  • Includes logset and crystals
  • Slim frame that features a large fireplace viewing area with life-like LED flames that cannot be rivaled by competitors
  • Heats up to 400 square feet (over 5,000 BTUs)

    Overview

    The Forte 40" wide Electric Fireplace is a uniquely designed electric fireplace by Touchstone that was made to accommodate customers who wanted to see a narrower edition of our Sideline model. Unlike the Onyx® fireplace which is designed to be mounted to your wall, the Forte is designed to be recessed into your wall while also allowing you to use its heating feature. Similar to the Sideline, The Forte heating feature is designed so that the heat is released through the front of the unit. Therefore, recessing The Forte within your wall is not a fire hazard. However, unlike The Sideline®, The Forte is much taller and narrower in size making it the perfect shape for smaller walls.

    Like all Touchstone electric fireplaces, The Forte Electric Fireplace gives you the beauty and warmth of a fireplace without the open flame, smell or cleanup. This electric fireplace heats up to 400 square feet with 5 flame settings and 2 heat settings (1000W and 1500W). A heat-free setting lets you enjoy the realistic flames of the fireplace all year round. Like all Touchstone electric fireplaces, The ForteElectric Fireplace gives you the beauty and warmth of a fireplace without the open flame, smell or cleanup.

    The New Design

    Free of distracting buttons and vents, The Forte Electric Fireplace features a streamlined mounting design for easy installation inside of a wall. Mounting is available on the back or sides of the unit. Simple to operate, the fireplace's heat and flame settings are fully controlled by a hand held remote. The 17-inch high glass display showcases the realistic flames beautifully; while small, unobtrusive heat vents on the glass keep the focus on the fire.

    Unmatched Realistic Flame

    The true-to-life flame sets Touchstone electric fireplaces apart from other brands. The flame of The Forte Electric Fireplace is so realistic, friends will think it is a gas fireplace and will be cautious about placing their hands near the flame. Energy efficient LED bulbs power the flame. The Forte Electric Fireplace has 5 flame settings, from a soft ember to a full raging fire which brings the 31" x 17" flame area alive. With a touch of the remote control, you can adjust the flame intensity to match the lighting of your room or your mood.

    Heat Setting

    It has two heat settings and is designed to add heat to a room up to 400 square feet. The heating element warms up quickly and creates a cozy setting, especially when used in combination with your home's primary heating source. The heat setting is controllable from the remote control. Versatile for use in any season, you can adjust the fireplace settings to enjoy the flame without the heat in warm weather.

    How Does the Forte Electric Fireplace Compare?

    Like The Sideline® Recessed Electric Fireplace, The Forte Electric Fireplace's design allows both recessed wall installation and wall mounted installation. The heat vents for both units are on the front glass displays so that the heating features can be used when recessed into your wall. The Forte Electric Fireplace boasts our tallest flame display, which gives the look of a more intense fire.

    Mounting and Use

    The Forte Electric Fireplace is designed for insertion in your wall. Complete instructions are available in the downloadable manual, or you can call us anytime for installation information at 888-992-1556. Mounting The Forte Electric Fireplace into a recessed position can be accomplished by mounting  using its vertical supports (6 screws). The glass display area is securely held in place by four bracket hooks and two screws. For installation, simply remove this glass cover to access the mounting screw holes. As with all electric fireplaces, Touchstone recommends placement of The Forte Electric Fireplace at least 12 inches below your ceiling. In some instances, customers have placed The Forte Electric Fireplace under a wall mounted, flat screen television. When mounted below a TV, we recommend mounting the fireplace at least 12 inches below bottom of the TV.

        Satisfied

        We ordered the Touchstone Forte model and it was delivered earlier than expected. Installation of insert into wall was smooth and easy. We were very satisfied with look and operation of this device.

        Great product but a couple of ideas

        Flames are very realistic, however since the room we put it in has a lot of windows, I would’ve appreciated the ability to make the flames even brighter. I also wish they included a faux log insert. I took the one from our old electric fireplace and added some lava rocks at either end which looks quite good. We just don’t prefer the modern look of white rocks or glass. I love how shallow the unit is and that the heat comes out the front. If they made my two modifications I would give it 10 stars. Still very happy with my purchase and would recommend. Works great if you want realistic fireplace dimensions like I do so I can add a cast stone mantel and hearth. Perfect for Florida where I rarely use a heater.
