Electric fires and suites have a number of major benefits over other fuels. Open fires can be inconvenient and messy, this is why so many people around the world appreciate the benefits of using an electric fire.

All Dimplex Optiflame® and Opti-myst fires are 100% efficient at point of use, so no heat is wasted. The ‘flames’ can also be used independently of the heating, so you can enjoy the cosiness of the flames on those dark but mild spring and autumn evenings.

Dimplex electric fires are very simple to install; virtually all fires come complete with a fitted plug and many don’t even require a fireplace! However, if your preference is for a complete fireplace, Dimplex can offer this too with a choice of suites and ready-to-fit surrounds.


Opti-myst – a revolution in electric fire technology.

Using unique state-of-the-art technology, we have created the most realistic flame and smoke effect ever seen in electric fire.The fully 3 dimensional effect uses established ultrasonic technology adapted from commercial applications to create an ultra-fine water mist that is illuminated to create the ‘flames’ and ‘smoke’.

This combined with the Optiglo glowing logs and shimmering ashbed, produced an effect that surpasses all expectations for realism in an electric fire.


Opti-V is our most unbelievable electric flame effect yet. It uses the latest High Definition TV technology to create flames and sparks for a virtual fireplace. The unique design combines ultra-realistic flames with three dimensional LED logos that sporadically spark! There is even the added audio element of crackling logs – completing the illusion of a real fire!


Optiflame® is the world’s most popular electric flame effect, and is used in a wide selection of Dimplex fires. Using unique, patented means, it generates realistic simulated flames from an electric source and creates the illusion of flames emanating from the centre of an enhanced depth fuel bed. This provides a realistic glow that can be enjoyed throughout the whole year.

Dimplex now offers a range of electric fires which caters for designers and architects. They can be the vital ingredient for creating an individual piece of furniture or an eye-catching focal point. View this collection here.
