Lennox Hearth Products Introduces the Merit™ Plus Series Louverless Direct-Vent (MPLDV) Gas Fireplaces - Available Summer 2007

Look of traditional masonry is affordable with new fireplace line

ORANGE, Calif. (May 24, 2007) – Lennox Hearth Products (LHP) introduces the MPLDV, a direct-vent gas fireplace with clean-face louverless design. Part of the Merit™ Series of fireplaces, this latest addition makes louverless options available to a broader market, specifically custom and standard builders.

These new fireplaces have the look and feel of traditional masonry fireplaces and provide both custom and standard builders with affordable louverless choices without compromising installation options or aesthetics.

Unique to this new fireplace line is a 30″ size, which allows for increased installation and spacing flexibility. The line also comes in the standard 35″, 40″ and 45″ sizes. These highly efficient, heater-rated units produce dramatic fire and glow at very low BTUs, saving energy costs without sacrificing flame quality.

“We’ve rounded out our louverless offerings with the addition of the new Merit Plus louverless direct-vent fireplace line,” states Scott Andrunas, director of marketing for LHP. “We can now satisfy any builder’s needs without sacrificing style or narrowing installation capability.”

Merit Plus louverless direct-vent fireplaces boast large, expansive openings for individuals to watch radiant flames on a detailed, realistic log set. Additional accessories that enhance the design capability of the units include a pull-screen front panel kit, paned arch or square louverless StyleView™ door panels, and fixed-screen panel options.

The Merit Plus louverless direct-vent gas 30″ and 40″ fireplaces will be available for purchase July 2007. The 35″ and 45″ sizes will be available August 2007. Images are embedded below.
