About Gas Coals


We've often been asked the question, "What makes a Real Flame gas coal firebasket better than a gas log fireplace?" In other words, "Why should I pay more for a Real Flame gas coal firebasket when I can get a gas log fireplace for less?"

The answer is simple - Real Flame firebaskets are the pinnacle of luxury fireplace design. Our firebaskets are unmatched in both style and quality. You will not find a more elegant and stylish gas fireplace anywhere in the world.

Real Flame gas coal firebaskets operate under the same principles as gas log fireplace sets. They provide the same amount of heat, are easy to operate, are cost efficient, environmentally friendly and are maintenance-free. However, that is where the similarities end.

The true benefit of a Real Flame firebasket lies in its beauty and elegance. This is evident both when the flame is turned on and when it is off. Hand-crafted by skilled European artisans, our firebaskets are unique and elegant decorative pieces that quickly become the centerpiece of your room, serving as a gathering place for family and friends. You can choose from many beautiful styles, individually crafted in polished brass, steel or iron.

The beauty of the flame mirrors the beauty of the firebasket. The coals for a Real Flame firebasket are 2" x 2" chunks of 100% spun ceramic fiber, bound together with a heat refractory pigment. This ensures that the coals will retain their size and color and will never require replacement. Since the coals are individual pieces, they can be arranged within the firebasket to form varying flame patterns to suit your mood and create the ambiance you desire.

If you're seeking beauty and elegance for your fireplace, in addition to form and function, then look no further - Homefires has a Real Flame gas coal firebasket that will meet your needs and your budget.
