Focus launches the gas Gyrofocus: an icon reinvented
Focus has reinvented fireplace technology with the announcement of the world’s first pivoting gas fire, the gas Gyrofocus – a new patented global innovation. This design meets the highest environmental standards and is the very symbol at the brand’s heart – once again shaking up established codes of design.
Global innovation with a registered patent
This legendary design, originally created over 50 years ago as a wood-burning stove, has a newly patented technology allowing the gas to be brought down through a sealed pipe into the suspended fireplace whilst pivoting 100°. This is a real technological feat and a world first recognised by the filing of a patent.
Simplicity and control at your fingertips
The gas Gyrofocus is practical, easy to maintain and a stress free fire. It is a generous and spectacular fireplace with ceramic logs that perfectly imitate the dancing flames of a real wood fire. The first suspended and pivoting gas fireplace is energy efficient with an output of 13 kW and allows for ease of installation above any type of flooring. The gas Gyrofocus is also equipped with remote control: instant ignition, adjustment of flame and heat intensity, programming for controlled, constant and comfortable heat.
The pleasure of fire in the heart of urban spaces
Odourless and with zero particle emissions, this icon can naturally finds its place in an apartment in any geo-location. Thanks to its ease of use, this sculptural design can be installed in the reception areas of large hotels, restaurants and establishments open to the public as well as private residential projects.
With its advanced technology, the gas Gyrofocus cannot be sold without a preliminary technical survey of the site and its installation must be carried out by official Focus partner-resellers trained in this technology. The model is equipped with a specially designed plate to allow the gas to pass through the pipe. The installation operates on batteries and the burner is controlled with a remote control. Focus has an extensive UK network of trusted partners and resellers.
