Evolution of the BIS

In the early 80’s the controlled combustion wood stove was a new phenomenon experiencing unprecedented demand, so much so that manufacturers struggled to keep up. Consumer acceptance was at an all-time high for wood-burning as they strived to reduce home heating costs and became more independent from conventional heating systems.

As consumers visited retail showrooms they wanted all the features of the new wood stove technology but many expressed the desire to have it as a built–in fireplace. This was something that was not available at the time.

Recognizing the market demand, we introduced the first BIS in 1984. BIS simply stood for “BUILT-IN STOVE.” There was one model and three door finishes. With the development of the BIS, a new high-efficiency fireplace category was born and became the fastest growing fireplace category by percentage. The BIS brand continued to evolve with additional models, a variety of sizes and more options like the Gravity Kit and the Forced Air Heating Kit which allows you move heat and enjoy the warmth in up to three other rooms.

30 years after creating the high-efficiency wood-burning fireplace category, we continue to be the market leader today offering a size to fit your need, limitless décor possibilities, high quality manufacturing, and total flexibility to heat additional living areas of your home.

I am in my 40th year in the Hearth Industry and am proud to have been involved with the BIS collection in its first 30 years on the market. In my mind there is no finer wood-burning fireplace available today. It has stood the test of time.

EPA Glass Door

SOLID DOOR CONSTRUCTION

Ceramic glass is used in all of our doors for added safety and optimum heat transfer. The door frames and hinges are made of 100% steel and the handles are cool to the touch.


FORCED AIR KIT

Share the warmth. The optional forced air kit allows heat to be passed to three additional rooms. With the forced air kit, heat can be transferred through the central heat duct of the furnace or even to rooms on a lower floor.

TEXTURED PANELS

All of our BIS Fireplaces come standard with textured white refractory panels, either in a stacked or herringbone pattern . Our refractory panels are crafted to look like real site-built masonry brick and will complement any style.
