HearthCabinet designs a completely self contained metal cabinet with insulation in the top, sides and back of each unit. There is a top-hinged door with a welded screen and keyed lock on each unit.
The fuel cartridge is patented and single-use (no refilling). The fuel cartridge sits inside the metal cabinet in a patented cartridge holder that keeps the cartridge upright and unable to tip or spill.
Our Motto: Safety, Safety, and More Safety™.
Safety is our most important concern.
HearthCabinet is the safest fireplace in the world, in our view.
Because the fire is behind our patented Locked Safety Screen™.
You can see the fire through the screen, but once you close the lock the fire is 100% secure.
No one, including guests or children, can get to the fire.
And — our system uses patented Safety Gel Cartridges™ for fuel. Just drop one in and light it.
Other systems require you to store liquid alcohol in your house and then pour it into the fireplace.
The combination of our Locked Safety Screen™ and our Safety Gel Cartridges™ produces the safest fireplace system in the world.
That is why we are the only ventless fireplace system approved by the New York City Fire Department and the New York City Building Department that we are aware of.
No other ethanol or alcohol fireplace can make that claim.

HearthCabinet Ventless Fireplaces use proprietary nontoxic, isopropyl alcohol gel fuel cartridges. The fuel is similar to a hospital-grade hand-sanitizer, rubbing alcohol, or chafing dish fuel.
The alcohol gel fuel cartridges are single-use and pre-filled so there is never any pouring of fuel.
Light the cartridges by removing the rubber stopper on the top of the cartridge and light the exposed gel fuel with a long butane lighter.
HearthCabinet Ventless Fireplaces can be installed in minutes by sliding the fireplace into a prepared opening or space and secured with four (4) screws through the base of the firebox. See product spec sheets on individual website product pages for specific installation requirements.
