The Touchstone Sideline50 Electric Fireplace was designed to meet the needs of contractors and do-it-yourself installers, who are looking for the beauty of a Touchstone fireplace mounted flush to a wall. We received so many calls from installers and contractors looking to mount our popular Onyx in their wall. For all its great benefits, the Onyx's top-placed heat element makes flush mounting impossible.
So here you have the Sideline50, a 50" wide, electric fireplace with the same realistic flames and contemporary black frame of the Onyx, but with a heat element that is placed in front of the frame. The Sideline50 delivers the beauty of a fireplace without the fire and smokey smell. The Sideline50 has 2 heat settings (high and low), and will heat a room up to 400 sq. ft. Also, the fireplace's flame can can be used without the heating feature. The Sideline50 is easy to install and comes with simple and understandable instructions.
The heart of Touchstone's electric fireplaces is the flame itself. We tell our customers the flame will transcend your expectations, and they have yet failed to impress. The flames deliver the same relaxing effect of real flames, without the smell or mess, and it looks great in any room of the house. With the 5 settings offered by the Sideline50, ranging from a dim glow to a full fire blaze, you have the power to adjust the flame intensity based on your desired mood or lighting of the room with the control features on your unit’s remote.

Yes, it does heat your room
What makes the Sideline50 unique is its heating capabilities. It allows you to recess your electric fireplace into the wall while also providing heat through the vent in the front of the unit. The Sideline50 offers two heat settings which quickly add heat to a room up to 400 sq. ft. Please note the heater isn’t designed to be the primary heat source in your room or home. Its designed to warm up a cool evening, or bring the temperature of a room up a few degrees. The visual appeal and heat emitted by your electric fireplace place in addition to your home’s primary heating source will provide you room with a cozy and calming aura. Your electric fireplace’s heat settings can be controlled using the remote or the controls on the front of the unit, and you also have the option of controlling the heat by setting the Sideline50s built-in heat timer for up to 7.5 hours.
Mounting and Use
The Sideline50 electric fireplace wears many hats. Although it is essentially designed for insertion in your wall, it can also be mounted to your wall. Instructions for mounting and install come with the fireplace, and we recommend you follow the simple instructions provided. We do recommend placing your Sideline50 at least 20” below your ceiling or 12” below your mounted flat screen because of its heating feature.

My sideline 50 arrived today. Nicely packed (outside box was banged up but inside box was in great shape. Assembly took 3 minutes max. Turned it on and it looked beautifull for about 3 minutes and abruptly turned off. Manual had instructions for thermal overload, not the issue, wasn't on long enough..

Love the touchstone sideline 50 fireplace! I appreciate the fact that it came with both logs and crystals. We are using the logs but we may change out for the crystals in the summer. Easy to install, beautiful look, and we get nothing but compliments on it in our new home. My parents were very impressed with how the flames look so real. Flames show best at night.

I just received my Touchstone Sideline 50 Electric Fireplace. We removed it from its well packaged box, plugged it in and Wow!! Those were the remarks I heard over and over from my friends. The folks at Touchstonehomeproducts.com hit this one out of the park when it comes to the most realistic flame on the market. This is a full featured electric fireplace with a built in heater to take the chill off the air along with a remote control for multiply flame heights, temperature level and timer. Included are both clear crystals and logs that have a realistic glow. Another benefit is the affordable price and free shipping! Dont hesitate to call their customer service number as they are very helpful to answer questions. I give this Sideline 50 Fireplace 5 Stars!
5Ecstatic about our new fireplace, November 1, 2016

After having some minor issues with the glass upon delivery and some questions, Brian was amazing in answering my questions, shipping out replacement glass and guiding me through everything. The result is that we are ecstatic about our new fireplace and want to thank everyone there. What a great company and amazing customer service. Like most companies, I am sure you get your fair share of complaining customers, but I thought it would be nice to get a true sincere thank you from a happy one. Please pass my thanks along to Brian directly. He was great. Thanks again and looking forward to cozying up by our Sideline fireplace this winter! You know, it does get chilly in South Florida.

Love the fireplace. However I made my opening slightly larger than your online and written instructions. Your measurements are off a bit.. The thickness of the screw heads on top, bottom and each side should be added to your posted width and height.

It's pretty nice. My wife is very happy with it and the flame effects are very nicely done. NOTE: There is an inside toggle switch on the right hand side of the panel that you have to toggle on for the unit. I initially overlooked it, but thankfully Evan from their support called and let me know what the problem was extremely quickly. Very happy customer.

Great electric fireplace. Would highly recommend. Love the glass stone option and the flexibility provided by the front heat exhaust. Looks wonderful wall mounted below our flat screen TV. Puts out more heat than expected and the flame rivals many gas fireplaces.
My only complaint, if you want to call it that, is I had to make/install a 1-1/2 spacer between the wall and the fireplace to accommodate the thickness of the cord and electrical plug. Otherwise it would have been hung at an angle or I would have had to move the electrical outlet to the exact location of the recessed cavity on the back of the fireplace.

My husband installed this fireplace in a couple hours.After installing it in the wall he tried the remote and it did no work. I called the company and they told me that they would send me a new remote and if that did not work they would send out a new unit. I received the remote in three days and now we can enjoy the fireplace. Great customer service

Hi after I receive my unit I figure out the remount control is not working, after I contact the company they send me other remount by mail, but the problem from the unit itself, the technical support was so nice they sent me a new unit for free by mail. and it is working properly .. I like their service
