Lufthansa Technik presents Fireless Fireplace

Full-scale design study for VIP & Private Aircraft exhibited

At the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE 2015) in Geneva, Switzerland, Lufthansa Technik has been presenting its design study of a Fireless Fireplace for VIP & Executive Jets for the first time. The design of the Fireless Fireplace can be adapted to each customer’s taste.

A New Level of Cosiness

Many private customers wish to have an interior in the aircraft which is as cozy their living room at home. Until now, an open fireplace has been one of the “no-go’s” on board an aircraft, due to safety regulations. Meeting the certification requirements from the authorities, Lufthansa Technik’s new fireless fireplace looks and sounds like a real fireplace and gives passengers a warm feeling while traveling at cruising altitude.

Realistic Simulation of Fire

The fireless fireplace uses a technology, which simulates a fire by illuminating water mist combined with an illuminated imitation of burning wood. This creates a very realistic 3-D impression of a real fire, while the “flame” is cold. Heat, sound and the intensity of the flame can be adjusted by a remote control. The fireless fireplace weighs around 30 kg excluding the surrounding interior design. Power consumption is up to 1300 W.
