The Ultimate Wood Burning Fireplace
The Original Arched Fireplace™
The Furnace That Looks Like A Fireplace
Fireplace Xtrordinair (sometimes called the FPX) the “Original
Arched Fireplace”, introduced the trademark product shape of
the parallel arches, the arched viewing area and the parallel arched face over two decades ago. The unique designs
concealing the air intake and heat exchanger, and the
arches have identified Fireplace Xtrordinair to thousands
of discerning homeowners all over North America.
The Elite series by Fireplace Xtrordinair is designed to maintain
the aesthetic appeal of the fireplace while delivering up
to 76,700 BTUs/hour, through a decorative grill built into
the face design, framing the fire and enhancing your home
decor. Other heat-circulating fireplaces require large unsightly
louvers or highly visible vent boxes above the fireplace
opening, sacrificing the traditional hearth look.
Nothing Matches A Real Log Fire
When you enter a home, what’s the one thing that makes you
feel instantly welcomed and relaxed? The cheery crackle and
dancing warm flames of a real log fire on the hearth.
The fireplace has always been the heart of the home. The
mood it inspires sets the stage for all our fondest memories
of romance, family sharing and festive gatherings around
the fireplace. This wonderful ambience is threatened by
society’s need for efficient use of fuel and a cleaner, healthier
The fireplace of old, and most manufactured fireplaces, cannot
meet these demands. Any heat generated by a traditional
fireplace goes up the chimney and not into the home.
The solution is the Fireplace Xtrordinair Elite series of wood
burning fireplaces. This state-of-the-art fireplace design,
available in two different sized models, provides the warmth,
romance and beauty of a traditional hearth without heat loss
and air pollution. Our Elite fireplaces are installed as framed in,
zero clearance fireplaces, and have an enviable overall efficiency
rating up to 73%. Both models are certified by the EPA as a clean
burning, environmentally responsible heating appliance and
qualify for the 2013 Federal Bio-mass Tax Credit.
The Elite series features sleek lines and large glass doors for
an expansive view of the fire. You have the option of a black
painted, nickel plated or hand-hammered Artisan™ face and
door for a dramatic flair. Only Fireplace Xtrordinair
such a uniquely beautiful, versatile look in a high BTU output
No Fireplace Burns As Clean As Fireplace Xtrordinair
A source of heat for your home shouldn’t be a source of
pollution for our environment. Fireplace Xtrordinair utilizes
the latest catalytic technology to reduce emissions by 90%
compared to conventional fireplaces. A catalytic combustor
reduces the temperature at which smoke ignites, causing it
to burn before it leaves the firebox. Unlike most fireplaces,
the Fireplace Xtrordinair Elite series surpasses the EPA’s strict
emissions standards for wood stoves - in fact, emissions are as
low as 2.3 grams of particulates per hour for the Model 36 Elite
and 2.5 grams for the Model 44 Elite!
Positive Pressure Heating System
One of the unique design features of Fireplace
Xtrordinair’s Elite fireplaces is that you can use
fresh air which is drawn from outside the home
for both combustion and heat transfer through a
unique concept called ‘Posi-Pressure’. Posi-Pressure
technology draws outside air into the cavity around
the fireplace, heats it, and circulates it throughout
the home via a quiet, remote blower. The heated
air naturally ‘seeks out’ and penetrates cold spaces,
warming the entire home evenly while ‘sealing’
cracks, leaks and other drafty spots by preventing
cold air infiltration.

Heating capacity and room temperature may vary due to location of
fireplace, degree of insulation, type of fuel and fuel moisture content.

Unmatched Beauty
The Fireplace Xtrordinair Elite series is
designed to meet your architectural
needs by blending with the interior of
your home rather than looking like an
The double door style is a classic, equally
at home in the country or when gracing a
contemporary living room. This fireplace
is flush to the wall, which saves valuable
floor space in a room.
The traditional classic arch design
accommodates standard brick dimensions
without cutting and works equally
well with stone, marble or tile for that
custom touch.
The controls for fan, air adjustment and
damper are subtly incorporated in the face
of the unit itself for easy access.
The standard heat resistant finish for the
doors and face is a rich metallic black.
Your dealer can offer a wide assortment
of decorator paint colors as well.
Upgrade your fireplace with an elegant
brushed nickel face plating. The plated
surface does not require polishing and
will not discolor under normal operation.
The Artisan™ fireplace face design and
craftmanship is reminiscent of the iron
work in the great lodges of Europe and
America. The Artisan is hand-forged
and hammered by master blacksmiths
in Europe. Each fireplace face will bear
unique subtle characteristics from the
hands of its creator, making it a true
work of art in iron. The Artisan in New
Iron paint finish is available as a single
door on the 36 Elite and as double
doors on the 44 Elite fireplaces.
Another beautiful benefit of the Elite
series is the size of the logs the unit can
burn (up to 32” on model 44 Elite). The
large capacity firebox features large doors
that provide a huge unobstructed view of
the beautiful, soothing flames.
Perhaps the most beautiful feature of the
Fireplace Xtrordinair Elite series is its
value. Despite the fact that the Elite line-up
is constructed of superior components
and features, and the performance ratings
are superior to every other certified fireplace, the cost of the installed system
is surprisingly competitive. The reason
is simple, the air cooled chimney system
approved for Fireplace Xtrordinair may
cost 50% less than chimney systems
required on other high heat output
fireplaces. This dramatic breakthrough
is due to the effectiveness of the unique
heat exchange Posi-Pressure system.
This system delivers most of the heat
generated into the home rather than up
the chimney.
Dollar for dollar, you will not find a better,
more cost effective way to efficiently heat
your home with wood!

Looks Like A Fireplace, Heats Like A Furnace
There has never been a fireplace made
that compares to Fireplace Xtrordinair in
all the performance categories, efficiency,
emissions and BTU output. One of the
most critical of all performance characteristics of any heating appliance is the
“overall efficiency”. This important data
tells you how much of the energy generated by combustion is turned into useful
heat. The Fireplace Xtrordinair Model 36
Elite is rated by the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in Oregon as
having 73%. This is the highest rating ever
achieved by a wood burning fireplace, in
fact much higher than most E. P. A. certified wood stoves.
How The Fireplace
Xtrordinair Works
An additional boost to the primary fire is
achieved by air inlets (3) near the base of the
huge firebox. This combined air entry allows
for aggressive and easy to light fires.
There are two EPA approved methods
for reducing emissions in certified wood
burning appliances, one being non-catalytic High-Tech design, the other using
catalytic combustors. Because of the very
large firebox size the 36 and 44 Elite fireplaces feature catalytic technology. The
catalytic combustor (4) is a ceramic honeycombed block that is coated with a
mixture of palladium and platinum.
Grams Per Hour
The huge size of the refractory lined (5)
firebox (4.3 cubic feet on model 44 Elite
& 3.7 on the model 36 Elite), combines
a large fuel load with the burn characteristics of the catalytic combustor for
longer, more efficient burn times than
those found in any High-Tech stove or

A catalytic by-pass
mechanism (6) is designed
to prevent smoke spillage during refueling
and allows for quick, effortless firestarting
by allowing a direct unobstructed path for
the flue gases during start-up.
The heavy baffle plates (7) increase the
time the unburned gases stay in the firebox, allowing them, when mixed with
fresh oxygen prior to entering the catalytic combustor, to increase efficiency
and lower emissions.

A single air control (1) regulates the burn
rate of the fireplace. As the fresh air is
directed to the primary combustion zone
of the fire, it is drawn evenly across the
glass by a sophisticated air wash. (2) This
air wash is designed to help keep the glass
clean during higher operating settings.
The combustor is designed to ignite any
unburned volatile gases that would otherwise pass up the chimney as smoke. The
catalyst in the combustor actually lowers
the temperature at which gases burn, thus
allowing the appliance to burn efficiently
over the complete operating range.
(8) The variable speed blower control
allows you to adjust the amount of heated air circulation into your home.
(11) The blower microswitch instantly turns off the blower
system when you open the doors to
prevent smoke-back into the room.
(12) The log retainer allows you the
ability to load a large amount of wood
without it rolling back out.

Highest BTU Output of
Any Phase II Certified Fireplace
The Fireplace Xtrordinair Elite series of wood burning fireplaces is one of
the cleanest burning and the highest BTU output appliances ever certified
by the EPA.
The Posi-Pressure System
Fresh outside air is drawn through a remote, quiet 388 cfm blower (13) to
pressurize the house, and provide outside air for combustion. A washable
air filter (14) keeps incoming air clean. The barometric damper (15) prevents cold air transfer into the heat chamber when your fireplace is not in
use. Outside air is circulated around the entire firebox (16) for maximum
heat transfer before being directed through the decorative face outlets to
pressurize your home with fresh heated air. The finish face (17) is removable
and comes from the factory either nickel plated or with a black paint finish.
Check with your dealer for custom paint colors they may offer.

Children like most of us, are fascinated by fire, and for families with young children
fireplaces pose a potential safety hazard. Take the time to educate young children about
the dangers of fire and the hot surface temperatures of glass and metal surrounding the
fireplace. If you have an infant or toddler consider installing a fire screen; make sure it’s
tall enough so that children can’t climb over it, and that it’s placed far enough away so
that reaching arms can’t touch the surfaces of the fireplace. A few precautions such as
these will allow everyone in your home to safely enjoy the comfort and warmth of your
new wood fireplace.
