    Overview

    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.

    Realistic Flame

    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)

    Now Comes With both Faux Log and Glass Crystals -
    Exclusive to All Touchstone Sideline Series Fireplaces

    The Sideline® Series Fireplaces now come with both glass crystals and a faux log set. For a contemporary feel, install the glass crystals in The Sideline® Series Fireplace. For a more traditional look, install the faux log set in The Sideline® Series Fireplace. The Sideline® Series Fireplace ships with both options, so you can choose the look that is right for you.

    Mounting and Use

    The Sideline® 40 electric is designed for recessed placement in your wall, but it can be hung on the wall as well. Instructions for mounting and install come with the fireplace, and we recommend you follow the simple instructions provided. We do recommend placing The Sideline® 40 at least 20" below your ceiling or 12" below your mounted flat screen because of its heating feature.

    Product Features

    • 2 heat settings (high and low)
    • Designed for recessed mounting in wall
    • Remote control for heat and flame setting (batteries not included)
    • Dual mode operates with or without heat for only flame effect
    • Built-in timer mode for shut off in 30 minutes to 7.5 hours.

    Fancy

    It works like it should. It's not very realistic but still a good ambience.

    Great Product!

    My wife and I are very pleased with this product. We spent a lot of time looking for fireplaces and just couldnt find one we liked enough that wasn't gas. I happened to run across this one while searching for ideas on building a bumpout in our wall and sure am glad I did. Shipping was very quick and the follow up from customer service was great.

    It’s not a real fire so...

    Easy to install. The flames are realistic. The only thing I am uneasy about is there is a slight humming/rattling when the heater is on ? Also the heater is not that powerful.

    • 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.
