The Matrix wood insert defines the new standards for contemporary look and performance. This appliance looks like a fireplace, but has all the advantages of an insert. It’s faceplate and blower assembly were developed to allow a flush finish with the masonry fireplace. The blower assembly (90 CFM) is equipped with a heat sensor and a switch that can be set to automatic, manual or OFF position.

Cast iron was selected as the material of choice for this clean and modern unit. Installation into larger openings is facilitated by the use of an optional sheet metal backing plate. This wonderful insert will surely become the focal point of the room.

Note that in order to install the optional projection kit AC01323, one of the optional faceplate backing plate kit AC01322 or AC01332 must be purchased separately to secure the projection kit to it.
