Fostering welcoming, safe spaces with flame

The sight of an open fire is acknowledged to have a positive psychological impact on the human brain, helping to lower blood pressure and improving levels of comfort and satisfaction. Such impacts are ideal in any healthcare setting, where stress levels can be high for patients, staff and visitors alike.

But real flame is challenging to use in these applications due to health and safety regulations and practicality concerns. This is where electric flame technology really adds value.
