The Ambiance Elegance® Wood Fireplaces are the best there is. The Elegance® 36 offers an exclusive combination of aesthetics and technology. For instance, Soapstone has no equal for heat management. It absorbs 15% more heat than firebrick and radiates heat 5 times more than firebrick. This increased efficiency is also the most beautiful to look at inside the firebox. It feels and looks rich!
