The world pioneer of the Water Vapor Technoligy, the Opti-Myst cassettes uses ultrasonic technology to create the world’s most realistic flame effect, with an ultra-fine water mist that mimics flame and smoke. As the mist rises through the logs warm light is emitted which reflects against the water, creating an incredibly realistic 3D illusion of flames and smoke which is commonly mistaken for the real thing.

The magic of
Water Vapor flames
A water vapor fireplace is an electric fireplace that uses cold water vapor and LEDs to create a realistic flame illusion. This new technology is completely safe, does not generate carbon monoxide and is a green alternative to any other type of fireplaces (wood, gas, ethanol, etc.).
Unlike traditional fireplaces mentioned above, there are no installation constraints, no finishing material constraints, no clearances, permit construction, glass, venting/chimney required.
Rad-Flame fireplaces are 100% safe for You and the Environment!
YOU WILL BELIEVE IT'S A REAL FIRE
HOW ELECTRICITY AND WATER, TWO SUCH OPPOSITES,
CAN CREATE THE ILLUSION OF FLAME?
These types of fireplaces run on water and electricity, which sets them apart from the rest of electric fireplaces. The water-powered electric fireplace creates the captivating illusion of a flame that looks incredibly authentic and compelling.
These fireplaces use an ultrasonic transducer which generates a cool mist. It consists of a ceramic disc vibrating at ultrasonic frequencies. These vibrations create water droplets which reflect the light produced by the LEDs. As a result, they create an amazingly realistic artificial flame illusion.
DO WATER VAPOR FIREPLACES CREATE MOISTURE/CONDENSATION?
It should be noted that the ultra-fine water vapor (a few microns) is immediately absorbed by the ambient air. Steam does not condense or create moisture on adjacent walls, it is often referred to as dry steam. This technical system produces cold flames that are so realistic that it is virtually impossible to tell them apart from traditional flames!
ADVANTAGES OF WATER VAPOR FIREPLACES
First of all, we can say that the safety of 3D water vapor fireplaces is total. Indeed, the flames are cold and therefore without any danger. It is therefore the home of choice for places open to the public (fireplace for hotels, restaurants, shops, etc.). It is also the best fireplace alternative for the apartments in the buildings which do not accept any hot flames in their safety regulations. But it is also the fireplace for families with children who do not wish to take any risks with the fire.
EASY TO INSTALL / NO CONSTRAINTS
Secondly, we must mention the simplicity of installation, use and maintenance of a 3D insert. This fireplace is unconstrained, it only consumes tap water. This is a very important advantage when you think about the difficulties of sourcing fossil fuels. On the other hand, it is a modern fireplace equipped with high-tech controls: remote control, buttons on the device, etc.
We can really talk about an ecological fireplace in every sense of the word. First, because it only uses water. And secondly, because a 3D fireplace does not produce harmful combustion gases. It does not emit unpleasant odors and no carbon monoxide and other dangerous polluting combustion residues. The water vapor fireplace also has a slightly humidifying effect, which is beneficial for breathing comfort when the rooms are too dry by heating.
Of course, the purchase price of a water vapor fireplace remains comparable to traditional fireplaces. However, it should be understood that the cost of use is practically zero. It is a huge difference, that makes the water vapor fireplace the most economical device when it comes to annual cost price. We no longer hesitate to use our fireplace and create a warm atmosphere as much as we want...
