The Sideline40 allows you to change the heat, flame intensity and color using your electric fireplace remote. Not only does the Sideline provide your space a relaxing glow, but it can also be customized to your liking.

The Sideline series has become so popular, customers regularly ask about finding a version in a size that fits their decor or room size. Touchstones response to everyone's request, The Sideline 40. The Sideline 40 has a ventless design, with an opening on the face of the fireplace delivering the heat. Like all Touchstone fireplaces, The Sideline 40 has the most realistic flame available in an electric smokeless fireplace, and it will leave all your friends nervous about putting their hands up to the glass face.

The Sideline 40 is perfect for smaller walls, and delivers a built-in look and ambiance that other electric fireplaces can touch. You'll have the look of a real fireplace, built right into your wall without the hassle of having to clean the unit. The Sideline 40 has 5 flame settings and 2 heat settings, and the fireplace can be operated without the heat, so feel free to use it on a summer evening as well as on the coldest winter nights. All of your required mounting hardware is included, and Touchstone support is just a phone call, email or live chat away, in case you need help.

Realistic Flame

The heart of Touchstone's electric fireplaces is our exclusive, realistic flame. This flameset is so natural-looking, your friends will be nervous to touch the glass. The Sideline 40 gives you 5 flame settings, from a quiet ember to a raging blaze, all of which can be controlled from the remote control or from the control panel on the face of the fireplace.

Yes, it does heat your room

Sure it looks great, but the Sideline 40 will help heat your room. We don't recommend The Sideline 40 as your primary heat source, but it can help heat a room up to 400 square feet in space with a heater that delivers 5100 BTUs. It's perfect for taking the edge off a cool evening in the fall, or for giving your room a little more cozy warmth on a frosty winter night. The Sideline 40 can also be operated without heat, but with electric fireplace operational so you can use it on those hot summer nights.

Multiple flame colors

To create the cozy atmosphere of a traditional fireplace, this electronic unit emits authentic-looking flames that emulate a real fire. The flames that Touchstone Home Products fireplaces simulate are natural enough to have friends and family think you own a traditional wood burning fireplace.
This fireplace has three color changing options (orange, blue, and blue-orange), along with five settings, from a soft ember glow or an intense blaze. The lighting and heating options of this fireplace offers you the ability to customize your atmosphere to your liking. With both its look and performance, Sideline gives you the total package. Both the heat and flame settings can be operated through a remote control. (Batteries not included)
