Twin-Star Develops 3D Flame Effect Technology

Twin-Star International is now offering its patent pending three-dimensional flame effect through a range of its electric stove, firebox and wall hanging units.

The 3D technology builds on Twin-Star initiatives including the development of Spectrafire and Spectrafire Plus customizable flame effects. The Spectrafire technologies can provide various effects from a gentle flickering flame to a roaring fire in multiple colors, cycle speeds and brightness with the touch of a button, the company said. The new 3D flame effect is an effort to advance a next generation of realistic electric fireplace flames, the company noted.

To create the effect, Twin-Star uses LED illumination and positions the flames in front and behind the log set to generate the look of a real wood-burning fireplace.

“Our 3D flame effect represents the next generation of realistic electric fireplace flames, offering the most lifelike LED flame technology available at or near the same cost as conventional electric fireplace inserts,” said Marc Sculler, Twin-Star co-president.
