The Touchstone Sideline® 50 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 Sideline® 50, 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 Sideline® 50 delivers the beauty of a fireplace without the fire and smokey smell. The Sideline® 50 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 Sideline® 50 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 Sideline® 50, 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.

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 Home Products™ fireplaces simulate are natural enough to have friends and family think you own a traditional wood burning fireplace.
This fireplace has three color changing options (orange, blue, and blue-orange), along with five settings, from a soft ember glow or an intense blaze. The lighting and heating options of this fireplace offers you the ability to customize your atmosphere to your liking. With both its look and performance, Sideline® gives you the total package. Both the heat and flame settings can be operated through a remote control. (Batteries not included)
Now Comes With BOTH Faux Log and Glass Crystals -
Exclusive to All Touchstone Sideline Series Fireplaces
All Sideline® Series Fireplaces now come with BOTH glass crystals and a faux log set. For a contemporary feel, install the glass crystals in your Sideline® Series Fireplace. For a more traditional look, install the faux log set in your Sideline® Series Fireplace. The Sideline® Series Fireplace ships with both options, so you can choose the look that is right for you.
Yes, it does heat your room
What makes the Sideline® 50 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® 50 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 Sideline® 50’s built-in heat timer for up to 7.5 hours.
Mounting and Use
The Sideline® 50 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 Sideline® 50 at least 20” below your ceiling or 12” below your mounted flat screen because of its heating feature.

With a flip of the switch, I have warmth and ambiance
I just wanted to let you know we finally got the electric fireplace installed this week in my new yoga studio. It looks fantastic and was so easy to install. I have attached a picture for you. Feel free to share or use as you choose. And, on top of everything else being so simple, with the flip of a switch I have warmth and ambiance in my studio. Just beautiful!
Great purchase, Sideline 50 80004
Purchased the Onyx Sideline 50 80004 for major remodel. Turned our non-working fireplace into a visually nice and modern look. It was too expensive to clear our chimney and make it up to code to use for a real flame fireplace. We could have gone gas, but decided to go with electric instead. We just wanted a sleek modern look and this certainly did that. Also, our livingroom runs warm all the time, one of the warmest rooms in the house, so we never need heat on in that room. Electrical was the best option to have the flames and no heat output. Only dislike is the faux log, doesn't look like the advertisement photos and doesn't look real. We went with the crystals and it really gives it a modern look. Highly recommend and is at a very good price for what you get.
The unit is awesome. right out of the box 10 minutes to install in recessed opening plugged in and fire it up. great realistic fire that my whole family is enjoying every night.
Nicely realistic, would like color variation.
Still have not installed it, but plugged it in and for an electric fireplace, it looks very realistic. I'd love to see more variations in color is my only critique. The only colors are 3 choices - yellow, blue and half of each. It would be nice to have more variables between full yellow and full blue. Looking for that full beautiful yellow with just a touch of blue for contrast/realism. The half of each is too blue. However, I really do like the look of the flame pattern etc and logs. Nice work.
Awesome Fireplace and fast shipping!
We love our new electric fireplace. The flames look sooo real, very impressed. Thank you!
