    The perfect size for a build out fireplace accent wall, the Forte® Electric Fireplace offers a traditional fireplace size with care-free coziness. This 40-inch wide electric fireplace includes all the top rated features of the Touchstone® Sideline Electric Fireplace Series, including a realistic LED flame display, built in heater and cool to the touch front. The Forte® is about 5 inches taller than the Sideline model.

    Simple to operate, the fireplace's heat and flame settings are fully controlled by a handheld remote. The 17-inch high glass display showcases the realistic flames beautifully; while small, unobtrusive heat vents on the glass keep the focus on the fire.

    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. 

    Easy Installation

    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!

    Love It!!!!!

    Experience was super easy, affordable, and came without any issues. We had it for a year before we installed it and my husband as the contractor needed to be able to take it out etc & adjust as needed, no issues -easy for him. It is perfect for a bedroom or finished basement or basically anywhere.. will definitely buy another when we finish our basement rec room! Awesome, love it!!

    Touchstone Forte

    We purchased a Touchstone Forte, as we were hoping for a more traditional look. I have purchased Touchstone fireplaces in the past & was impressed by the visual flame quality. We were not disappointed with this unit. Absolutely LOVE IT! Fast shipping and well packaged. Highly recommend Touchstone for your next fireplace project!
