Acucraft Fireplaces created this gorgeous Custom Peninsula Gas Fireplace for the new Davidoff Cigar lounge in Ridgewood, NJ.
This fireplace was designed with side viewing of 78″ wide x 30″ tall, the front viewing area is 28″ wide x 30″ tall.
It is fully customized with the following options:
72″ Long Burner which creates a Tall Lazy Flame
Designed and fabricated to be dropped through a small skylight by disassembling the fireplace into three pieces (top, left & bottom) upon delivery:

Acucraft’s patent-pending glass cooling system (additional information below)
Custom Heat Relief System which was designed to provide heat to the room when the thermostat called for heat, and expelled the heat outside when the room did not need additional heat. This was done by an auto damper wired directly to the Honeywell thermostat. The space was equipped with heavy ventilation by the customer to ensure up to 20 guests could enjoy their cigars without lingering smoke and enjoy a comfortable temperature.
Porcelain reflective panels were placed on the back and around the burner
Bronze & copper glass media
This fireplace’s output is up to 85,000 BTU depending on the desired height of the flame, and is easily controlled through an on/off wall switch.

Acucraft Fireplaces – Custom 72″ Burner
The photos below & to the right showcase one of the testing phases done by Acucraft with all of our fireplaces to ensure we capture the type of flame requested by the client. You can see how the burner produces tall lazy flames.
Acucraft’s patent-pending glass cooling system is the go-to option for many of our clients. This system forces cooler air from outside into the air channel between glass panes to keep the average glass temperature to 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
The image below diagrams how our glass cooling system works.
Acucraft’s Patent-Pending Glass Cooling System
The blue arrows represent the glass cooling intake air which is taken from outside, passes between the glass panes keeping them at a touchable temperature but warming that cool air up which can then be transferred back into the space or vented outside (orange arrows).
The yellow arrows represent the combustion air intake which takes air from outside, flows through the fireplace, heats up, and creates a draft which pushes the vented gas to the outside (red arrows).
These two systems work together to maintain a safer, cooler glass temperature as well as providing you with optional additional heat to your space.

Custom 4-Sided Open Gas Fireplace by Acucraft – Atlas Holdings LLC Corporate Office – Greenwich, CT
Acucraft Fireplaces partnered with Pavarini North East Construction Co., Inc. and HLW International to create this beautiful Custom 4- Sided Open Gas Fireplace for Atlas Holdings LLC in Greenwich, CT. The customer wanted a custom fireplace with a tall, yellow, lazy flame that would be warm & inviting and fit in a more modern space within their corporate office.
The client did an amazing job with the rendering they provided Acucraft (pictured left). Renderings are a great place to start bringing your vision to life.
After reviewing the client’s initial rendering Acucraft presented different
options and landed on the final drawing of the hood & based displayed below:

Based on the specifications from the client, Acucraft engineered the base, hood and flue to this fireplace by including a:
Fully suspended hood, wrapped in black clad, from the ceiling & supported entirely by the roof of the building
Dual Flue System, due to the open area between the base & the hood, to ensure complete frontal velocity
2 power vents & 2 dampers connected to an automated damper control system
This custom fireplace was designed to be placed in cement and surrounded by seating. The picture below also showcases the openness and height as well as the brilliance of the flame created.

Acucraft Fireplaces is proud to announce our newest wood fireplace series, The Unity! The Unity is a clean face wood burning fireplace that unifies modern aesthetic or more rustic settings with the benefits of high-tech wood burning fireplaces. The clean and flexible fireplace series is revolutionary in the wood burning industry, combining top performance with a minimal, no-nonsense design.
With the introduction of The Unity Series, Acucraft Fireplaces is giving architects, designers, contractors, and homeowners a clean face fireplace with controllable heat output. Air is pulled from a room of your choice, circulated around the firebox, and pushed to almost any room in your home. If you are not looking for heat beyond the radiant heat produced by the fireplace, the air can be released outside instead.
The Unity Wood Burning Series is available in the following sizes: 36, 44, 48. All sizes are available single-sided or see-through and with rectangular or arched fronts. Single door or double door options available. See-through models can be configured for Indoor/Outdoor applications.

Acucraft partnered with the Architecture + Design, Carlson Restaurants team to develop a gas fire pit for their TGIF restaurant chain. Acucraft enjoys working with customers to co-design unique fire features.
The architects came to us asking for a 4′ long custom burner, assuming they would need to provide everything else. Their initial plans, as well as their TGIF concept store, can be seen below.

We shared with the architects that we could provide the custom burner with ignition system or we could provide them with a complete gas fire pit. Rather than having 5-6 different groups working on small parts, Acucraft Fireplaces was able to design, manufacture, and deliver a complete fire pit. Carlson selected Acucraft to provide the complete gas fire pit to achieve a consistent look worldwide and to greatly reduce the number of trades involved. This decision simplified the process, sped up delivery time, and decreased cost significantly.
After reviewing the architects’ initial drawings and concept store, Acucraft presented multiple design options.

At Acucraft Fireplaces, we work directly with the customer. We take the time to understand your concept and initial idea, a critical step in any design project. Our design process is one of discussion, a conversation with our customers, that takes your initial idea and evolves it into a unique, safe, and beautiful fire feature.
The fire pit Acucraft has developed for TGI Friday’s is being installed in restaurants around the country, where store managers are already seeing “50% more walk-in traffic when the fire pits are burning”.
Acucraft test burns every fire pit and fireplace before being shipped to the customer. The two fire pits below (right) just entered testing today and will then be on their way to Texas.
" My wife and I purchased our Acucraft Z-Max 5 years ago. We built our 3500 sq ft house ourselves. We installed R-33 in the roof system and R-19 in the walls with 1/2 log siding. We intended for the fireplace to be a supplemental heat source. After our first few fires using the blowers the Max heated our entire house, even with the 26' ceilings! Not only is the fireplace a great heat source, it's also very efficient. We usually have 20 to 30 fires a month with good seasoned hardwood that burn all night. I clean the interior after each burn. There is less than a 2 gal. Bucket full of ashes! Great engineering! "
