Interior Design Media
Ortal offers a wide selection of interior design media for you to stylize and personalize your Ortal fireplace. Standard media options are included with the fireplace, and upgraded media options are available at an additional cost. Upgraded media options are marked below with an asterisk (*).
Interior media from other manufacturers can be used, but if you decide to do so, please ensure that the materials are authorized for use in gas, direct vent fireplaces. Regardless of the media source and type, our media placement guidelines must be followed. Click “read more” for media placement guidelines.
Pilot: Maintain 2” radius clearance from pilot. The area around the pilot must be free from obstruction or the pilot will not ignite properly.
Burner/Grill: Cover up to 80% of the burner and grill’s surface area, not more. It is OK to cover less, but not more.
Ceramic Glass Panel: Maintain minimum clearance of ¼” from media to glass panel. The media is not to touch the glass panel(s).
Size: If using aftermarket media (i.e. glass pebbles, small “woodchips”), make sure that pieces are ½” or more in diameter.
Logs (Branches, logs, other similar decoration): If ORTAL branches or others, when stacking them vertically (i.e. like a tee pee), be sure to avoid catching the top of the flame, the yellow area of the flame (usually the highest point) as that can create soot.
Glass: When using glass, maximum thickness layer is 1”.
Layout: Choose placement of media that fits the desired aesthetic and design (i.e. height, spacing between pieces, overlap, etc.), but be sure to adhere to the above guidelines for proper fireplace operation. Do not lay in media in one pile. Make sure that materials are spread out to maintain proper appearance and function of the flame.
LOGS & BRANCHES
Natural looking firewood replicates a variety of trees from near and far.
Displayed over charcoal and bark, crafted logs complete an authentic fire scene.
Watch for hours as flames dance on a bed of sparkling glass in colors to highlight a room’s design details. Enhanced with dramatic internal lighting, glass media exhibits stunning effects.
BRICKS & PANELS
From classical raw clay to modern industrial,brick adds character to any fire. Although easy to install, Ortal panels make it look like you laid each row brick by brick.
