Multiple flame colors
To create the cozy atmosphere of a traditional fireplace, this electronic unit emits authentic-looking flames that emulate a real fire. The flames that Touchstone® fireplaces create are natural enough to have friends and family think you own a traditional wood burning fireplace.
This fireplace has 60 color combinations, allowing you to set just the right mood. The lighting and heating options of this fireplace offer you the ability to customize your atmosphere to your liking. With both its look and performance, the Sideline Elite® gives you the total package. Both the heat and flame settings can be operated through a remote control. (Batteries not included)
Yes, it does heat your room
What makes the Sideline Elite® Electric Fireplace 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 Sideline Elite 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. It's 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 your 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 up the Sideline Elite’s built-in heat timer.
Mounting and Use
The versatile Sideline Elite® Electric Fireplace offers two installation options. Although it is essentially designed for insertion in your wall, it can also be mounted on your wall. Instructions for mounting and install come with the fireplace, and we recommend you follow the simple instructions provided. We recommend placing your Sideline Elite 50 at least 8” below your ceiling or 8” below your mounted flat screen TV because of its heating feature.

- Dual mode operates with or without heat for only flame effect

This fireplace exceeded my expectations. Very high quality product. Packaging was great. Arrived undamaged. Realistic flames with good heat output. We have it recessed into a wall we built out from another wall and it looks fantastic.
Haven’t installed yet, but I’ve tested it and seems to work just fine! Love the flame pattern and colors. Wife likes the heater function so that’s a big plus. Looking forward to the final install.
Sideline Elite 50”
Amazing product. Shipping to Canada was super fast. The flame/ media options are excellent. Heat is pretty good as well.
Very happy with this fireplace. The item arrived fast after order (2-3 days). We did the install yesterday and looks perfect. Enough heat and we are content with the options. We have non-working remote, called customer service and replacement will be sent soon.
I am a custom woodworker and I have been building fireplace surrounds for years. After my wife and I moved into our new home, I knew that I wanted to get something that was top of the line for our own home! I love how this model doesn’t have a wide frame to it. That was the selling point! I now suggest these products to my clients, the quality is incredible!
