Exploring the technology

Providing the beauty of a real fire with the simplicity of electric, our Optimyst range opens up a world of potential for projects of any size. It’s the perfect solution that balances beauty, style and safety. Optimyst has been specially developed for design installations, appealing to designers, developers and end-users.

Optimyst 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 a convincing 3D illusion of flames and smoke.

The Optimyst range offers incredible versatility in design. Individual cassettes can be arranged together to create a fire as large as the project demands. This freedom grants a huge variety of options regarding size and shape and our experts at Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation can help you to develop the perfect feature for your project.

Fire & Ice

How do you create the warmth of a Christmas fire in a Magical Ice Kingdom without melting the stage? By using the Optimyst Cassette 500.

More than 200 awe-inspiring sculptures, created from 500 tonnes of ice and snow, filled Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland arctic environment that was kept at -10° C. The temperature was necessary to maintain the integrity of the ice sculptures, but the designers enhanced the visit with audio and theatrical lighting.

To operate successfully in such extreme conditions, Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation’s R&D team created a specially adapted version of the Optimyst 500 cassette for the challenge that the creators of the Winter Wonderland’s Magic Ice Kingdom faced.

“We were delighted to be working with Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation at the Magical Ice Kingdom. The Optimyst fires were a great addition and truly impressed our visitors across the festive season.”

Stephen Flint Wood, director, PWR Events.
