The Touchstone™ Sideline® Steel Electric Fireplace takes all the features of our popular Sideline® glass faced fireplace, but brings it to you in a matte black steel face design, ideal for more traditional room settings. In place of the glass face of the standard Sideline®, the Sideline® Steel offers a black steel frame, with the heating element and log set behind a classic fireplace screen, lending to its more classic look. It's ideal for dens, basements or any room where a standard fireplace is being replaced or was never installed.
The Touchstone™ Sideline® Steel Electric Fireplace was designed to meet the needs of contractors and do-it-yourself installers, who are looking for the realistic flame of a Touchstone™ fireplace mounted flush to a wall. By eliminating the glass surface, the design lends itself to less modern installations.
Like standard Sidelines, the heating element is in the front of the fireplace, so the flame and heat vent are situated near each other. Add the metal fire screen to the 5100 BTUs of heat, and you have a dramatically realistic flame set, all with no smoky smell or mess of a real fireplace. The Sideline® Steel has 2 heat settings (high and low) and add complementary heat to a room up to 400 sq. ft. Also, the fireplace's flame can be used without the heating feature. The Sideline® Steel 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 go beyond your expectations, and the feedback we receive confirms it. 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® Steel, 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
The Sideline® Steel features a 5000 BTU heating element, allowing you to recess your electric fireplace into the wall while also providing heat through the vent in the front of the unit. The Sideline® Steel offers two heat settings, which are quick to add heat to a room up to 400 sq. ft. The classic fireplace look of the Sideline® Steel along with the heating element will immediately change your room. Your electric fireplaces 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® Steel built-in heat timer for up to 7.5 hours.

Very nice indeed! The heater helps take the edge of a sometimes cool room. The fireplace is very attractive, such a pleasant addition to our home. We enjoy it so much we’re contemplating adding another one in our master bedroom.
I purchased this last fall after searching for an affordable, but more lifelike quality electric fireplace. I chose this fireplace from Touchstone and I LOVE it!! I had many questions before buying and the people at Touchstone were great! I did replace the log insert with a driftwood insert from another company and also purchased river rocks to line the bottom. It is mounted directly on the wall inside a wood surround with metal finishes on the side. It is everything I wanted for the design of my space!
I recently purchased a fireplace from Touchstone, but haven not had a chance to install it yet. So far he buying experience has been great.. The website was user friendly. The customer service was excellent. The product shipped quickly. I'll have to post an update once I have the fireplace installed.
We have been through a lot, my husband decided to finish our basement during the middle of the pandemic. We originally bought a fireplace from Wayfair, that unfortunately did not fit in the frame. I ordered another one from Wayfair - I paid overnight shipping and it took 1 month of waiting. While waiting for the one we ordered in Wayfair, my husband was researching online and he came across Touchstone- we decided to order from Touchstone and we received it in 4 days. Excellent service!
This is literally the first review I’ve ever taken the time to do. I shopped around online and looked at many reviews. The reviews for Touchstone were great and it was because of their customer service. I found the same fireplace I wanted somewhere else for a little cheaper, but I decided to buy direct just in case I had any issues. Right out of the gate I could really they cared about their customer service with the follow up. The fireplace arrived, I took it out of the box and I had a mark where the styrofoam had gotten wet and adhered to the face of it. I let customer service know and they resolved it right away. I’m happy with the way it looks and extremely happy with the customer service. I highly recommend this company.
