Patent
Basic Holdings | Date: 2017-02-01

An artificial fireplace comprising a housing (2) having an optical element comprising a dichroic mirror, a first fuel bed portion and a second separate fuel bed portion, the first and second fuel bed portions being angularly offset from one another within the housing, the optical element being configured to selectively combine the first and second fuel bed portions to create a virtual fuel bed.


Apparatus for producing an optical effect includes a screen comprising at least one electroluminescent material and associated electrodes for exciting the electroluminescent material to emit light. The electrodes are locally excitable so that the regions of the electroluminescent material generally in the shape of flames may be excited. In an alternative form, or additionally, the screen comprises a material of variable opacity such as a liquid crystal polymer or a suspended particle device, gain, electrodes are locally excitable to locally change the opacity of the screen. The screen is locally illuminated to provide the impression of flames.

A wall mounted fan heater comprising safety elements including a thermal cut-out which is co-operable with a water impervious barrier which minimises the possibility of splashing water coming into contact with the at least one of the thermal cut out.


Patent
Basic Holdings | Date: 2011-11-23

The disclosure relates to simulated flame effect fires which include an apertured bed, such as a simulated fuel bed, a vapour generating means such as an ultrasonic transducer and means for providing a rising current of air to carry the vapour through the apertured bed. Light sources are provided below the fuel bed to provide localised illumination.

Provided is an electronic display panel for installation on devices subject to temperature fluctuations, the panel comprising a controller configured to deactivate the display panel when the temperature of the display panel is outside a preferred operational temperature range of the display panel.


Patent
Basic Holdings | Date: 2014-11-14

A simulated flame effect fire comprising a liquid reservoir for containing liquid; at least one wick having a portion thereof configured for contact with the liquid; a heating element arranged relative to another portion of the at least one wick for evaporating liquid in the wick, thereby generating vapor; a light source arranged relative to the at least one wick for illuminating the vapor from the wick to generate simulated flame effects; and a fuel bed located such that the generated simulated flame effects appear to originate from the fuel bed.
