New Be Modern Models

Alcazar Radiant Slimline Gas Fire

Alcazar Slimline Gas Fire

The Alcazar open fronted gas fire gives an open-hearted welcome, in minutes you can achieve that shimmering ember stage of burn which takes hours with a carefully tended conventional open fire. Just as quickly, the radiant heat swells forth from the flames and coal bed. Should it get a little too warm, one touch of the slide control lowers the heat and flames to a serene level. Pictured here with Design trim and fret in Brass, the Alcazar is also available in 'Cast' trim with an array of optional finishes.

Be Modern Vortex Deepline Gas Fire

Be Modern Vortex Gas Fire

The Be Modern Vortex is a deepline fire made specifically for brick and pre-fabricated chimney types. This is more than a practical consideration, it means that the fire bed stretches further back and extends the flame vista.

The fascinating natural variation of intense flame endlessly captivates your attention. Generating over 3kW of heat, the Vortex has the power to make a substantial improvement to your comfort.

Velocity Deepline Inset Gas Fire

Be Modern Velocity

The Be Modern Velocity is the hottest open fronted fire in the new Be Modern Gas Fire Collection. That’s because the radiant heat from the deep coal bed is supplemented by a convection system.

This cleverly draws in room temperature air via an inlet at the base of the fret, passes it through a heat exchanger and expels it as super-heated air over the canopy back into the room. This technology not only boosts the heat output to 3.8kW but also the efficiency to 62%. If you love the open fronted look the Velocity is the investment to make.

Be Modern Imperium Inset Gas Fire

Be Modern Imperium Gas Fire

The Be Modern Imperium's heat permeable glass panel concentrates the radiant heat into the room without sucking in cooler air. The result is a whopping 87% high-efficiency rating with consequent lower running costs.

Maximum efficiency, great heat output of 3.4kW to fill the room and the same choice of styles as our open fronted fires.

Titanium Deepline Inset Gas Fire

Be Modern Titanium Cast Brass Fire

The Be Modern Titanium is the most generous of the new Be Modern Gas Fire Collection in terms of it's 4.5kW heat output - plus it's deeper fuel bed provides an array of glowing and warming flames.

It is also the most economical to run. This is because the glass front throws an enormous amount of heat into the room achieving an impressive 89% efficiency rating.


Some of this new range boast efficiency ratings over 85% making them less expensive to run than older gas fires. Options are available for pre-cast flues and Class 1 & 2 Chimneys. Let Direct Fireplaces staff help you choose your perfect new Be Modern gas fire.

Safety Built In

Be Modern have been manufacturing high-quality fires and fireplaces for over 50 years. Their fires are rigorously tested to ISO standards, have safety features including a flame failure device and an oxygen depletion sensor and are all covered by a five-year manufacturer's warranty for your piece of mind.

Be Modern's Flame failure device cuts off the gas supply if the flame goes out during operation and the oxygen depletion sensor closes the gas supply if the oxygen level in the room is too low or if it detects a blockage in the chimney.
