    The SidelineĀ®Ā series has become so popular, customers regularly ask about finding a version in a size that fits their decor or room size.

Like all Touchstoneā„¢Ā fireplaces, The SidelineĀ®Ā 40 has the most realistic flame available in an electric smokeless fireplace, and it will leave all your friends nervous about putting their hands up to the glass face.

    The SidelineĀ®Ā 40 is perfect for smaller walls and delivers a built-in look and ambiance that other electric fireplaces can touch. You'll have the look of a real fireplace, built right into your wall without the hassle of having to clean the unit. The SidelineĀ®Ā 40 has 5 flame settings and 2 heat settings, and the fireplace can be operated without the heat, so feel free to use it on a summer evening as well as on the coldest winter nights. All of your required mounting hardware is included, and Touchstoneā„¢Ā support is just a phone call, email or live chat away, in case you need help.

    Realistic Flame

    The heart of Touchstone's electric fireplaces is our exclusive, realistic flame. This flame set is so natural-looking, your friends will be nervous to touch the glass. The SidelineĀ®Ā 40 gives you 5 flame settings, from a quiet ember to a raging blaze, all of which can be controlled from the remote control or from the control panel on the face of the fireplace.Ā 

    Yes, it does heat your room

    Sure it looks great, but the SidelineĀ®Ā 40 will help heat your room. We don't recommend The SidelineĀ®Ā 40 as your primary heat source, but it can help heat a room up to 400 square feet in space with a heater that delivers 5100 BTUs. It's perfect for taking the edge off a cool evening in the fall, or for giving your room a little more cozy warmth on a frosty winter night. The SidelineĀ®Ā 40 can also be operated without heat, but with electric fireplace operational so you can use it on those hot summer nights.
