Unmatched Realistic Flame
The true-to-life flame sets Touchstone® electric fireplaces apart from other brands. The flame of The Forte® is so realistic, friends will think it is a gas fireplace and will be cautious about placing their hands near the flame. Energy efficient LED bulbs power the flame. The Forte® Electric Fireplace has 5 flame settings, from a soft ember to a full raging fire which brings the 31" x 17" flame area alive. With a touch of the remote control, you can adjust the flame intensity to match the lighting of your room or your mood. 3 flame colors (orange, blue and orange-blue).
Built in Heater, Designed for Year Round Use
The Forte® Electric Fireplace gives you the beauty and warmth of a fireplace without the open flame, smell or cleanup. This electric fireplace heats up to 400 square feet with 5 flame settings and 2 heat settings (1000W and 1500W). A heat-free setting lets you enjoy the realistic flames of the fireplace in any climate or season.
The Forte® adds supplemental heat to your room. The heating element warms up quickly and creates a cozy setting, especially when used in combination with your home's primary heating source. The heat setting is controllable from the remote control.
Free of distracting buttons and vents, The Forte® Electric Fireplace features a streamlined mounting design for easy installation inside a wall. Mounting is available on the back or sides of the unit. Complete instructions are available in the downloadable manual, or you can call us for installation information at 800-215-1990.
TV Mounting Above the Fireplace
For safe clearance from the heat vents, we recommend mounting The Forte® Electric Fireplace at least 8 inches from the ceiling. When mounting a flat screen television above the electric fireplace, leave at least 8 inches between the fireplace and TV.

Love our inserts!
We have a fireplace that opens up into the living room and the dining room. We bought 2, forte 80006 40” inserts and just love them. They were just a tad short but nothing a little crown molding painted black couldn’t fix. Everyone that comes over goes nuts over them. Great packaging and super easy install!
This fireplace looks as great as an electric fireplace can possibly look I believe. The heater fan is pretty quiet. The design is modern and slick. We built ours into a custom enclosure. Easy to install and operate. Thanks!!
I can’t believe the difference adding a fireplace to my living room has made! It wasn’t that difficult to build it out and and it looks amazing! Everyone that comes over comments on how realistic it is and I love that I can choose if it pumps out heat or not.
I love this unit. It is just the ambiance I was looking for. It makes the room. The look feel and vibe are amazing and love coming home at turning it on and just sitting in the quiet.
Excellent! It would be nice to know that the two small screws holding the glass for shipping don’t need to be reinstalled. There needs to be clearance above the glass to lift lt off the brackets it hangs on.
