Conventional flue gas fires (aka ‘open combustion’) make use of a chimney to draw fresh air and expel waste.
Traditional open-fronted fires also draw from the surrounding room to aid convection and circulation. Such arrangements are becoming increasingly rare, however, as the majority of modern conventional flue gas fires are glass-fronted.
This is because a fire protected by the
