If you're in the market for an electric stove but you're concerned about how realistic the flame effect might be then the Dimplex Fortrose is well worth a look at. This stove is fitted with an ultra-realistic 3D smoke and fire effect know as opti-myst. This incredibly realistic flame effect is created using cold water vapour giving you the warm ambience of a flickering real fire.

This wood burner style electric stove features a traditional double door design giving the impression of a classic stove but with modern electric functionality. Immerse yourself in the captivating flame effect by opening the two doors for an even clearer view of the LED flames and with the hand painted log fuel bed you can enjoy even more realism. With the Dimplex Fortose electric stove there is no requirement for a flue or gas connection, this stylish opti-myst fire is freestanding so it can be placed anywhere from a traditional fireplace opening to a conservatory so long as the 1.8m cable can reach a plug socket.

One of the standout features of this electric fire is the heat output, it offers a choice of 1kW or 2kW of heat when you need a quick burst of warmth, alternatively the flames and smoke effect can be operated without heat making it an all year round appliance. The fan heater can be thermostatic controlled by using the remote handset this means that you can set the fire to produce heat when the room drops to a certain temperature. Overall, the Dimplex Fortrose electric fire is the perfect centrepiece for a living space in need of an efficient heat source, with the Fortrose you'll create a cosy and inviting atmosphere that you and your family will never want to leave.

Delivery Information:
Your goods will usually be delivered on a 10-tonne vehicle (about the size of a bin wagon). If there is likely to be a problem with access please contact us in advance of placing your order. Examples of areas we cannot deliver to are long or gravelled drives, areas inside walled cities with height restrictions, narrow lanes, grassed lawns, steep drives, narrow gateways or up/down steps. We may be able to make alternative delivery arrangements if you contact us in advance.
With our standard delivery service, there will be one driver, we suggest you have at least one other person with you to assist. The driver will move the goods to the nearest accessible wheel point depending on access. Unfortunately due to insurance and health and safety issues, the driver is not permitted to move the goods inside your property but can wheel them into a garage. 
We advise that you check the goods while the driver is still there. The driver is obliged to wait for up to 10 minutes, (for palletised goods only) whilst you unpack and check the goods. If the driver refuses to wait then please mark the goods as damaged on the delivery note, so you are covered for all eventualities. If you have checked the goods and they are found to be damaged, please mark this clearly on the delivery note and contact our offices straight away.
If you are unavailable when your goods are delivered on your pre-booked delivery date, then re-delivery charges will apply. If you are unavailable when smaller packaged goods (eg. Stove Glass) are delivered, the courier company will leave a note, explaining how to re-arrange delivery for a more convenient time.
