Real Flame 5950E Chateau Corner Electric Fireplace, Small, Dark Walnut


The sophisticated indoor Real Flame 5950E Chateau Corner Electric Fireplace is designed to work without the need for ventilation. The device burns isopropyl alcohol to generate heat. The firebox contains 1400 watt heater has a rating of more than 4700 BTU/Hr.  The fireplace construction has 9 panels with 3 panel supports. The materials used for construction are solid wood and veneered Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF). You can plug in the fireplace to a standard power outlet of 110-120 volts. The main heating components are the firebox and the mantel. The supporting elements are the screen kit and remote control. The finishing is dark walnut.

Real Flame 59050E Mantel Design

  • Base Panel: – The base panel provides support for the other mounted panels. Te extension of the panel from the front part to the rear holds the entire fireplace conduction.
  • Side Panels: – The two side panels (left and right) provide support to the top mounted panels of the fireplace. Their rectangular structure extends from the bottom panel till the top panels.
  • Front Panels: – The three front panels provide strength and stability to the side panels apart from protecting the firebox‘s mantel and screen kit.
  • Other panels: – The Real Flame 5950E other panels at the top center, top corner, central and support for the panels. The architecture of the entire fireplace is designed for easy assembly and disassembly. This kind of design makes the fireplace easily portable.
  • The Mantel: – The assembly of the panels and supports make the construction of the mantel. The Real Flame 5950E assembly kit comes with short and long Allen screws, L-brackets, washers and Allen wrenches. You can assemble the mantle by following the instruction manual. This is a simple process since the steps are clearly explained with the help of images and part names to be assembled.
  • Material Strength: – The combination of solid wood and Veneer MDF makes the mantel and the construction very strong. The surface retains its blemish less property for many years under harsh climatic conditions. The material has high resistance factor to thermal expansion and compression. It can withstand humidity and heat without degenerating. The combination of veneer with the MDF makes the material appear like genuine wood. The painting on the MDF material retains its brightness and freshness for many years. The material has a tensile strength of 18MPa which is higher than normal wood. The construction can withstand the high volume of heat generated by the Firebox. The high value of thermal shock resistance makes the construction durable and reliable when the firebox is working at its highest heating capacity. The high sheer modulus property of wood protects the construction from deformation due to heat from the firebox. The processing and pressing of the MDF enhances the thermal properties for expansion, specific heat and conductivity. The interior mantel design ensures that the maximum of net heat generated by the firebox is directed into the room in which the fireplace is placed. Hence the loss of heat is very low in the Real Flame 5950E model.

Real Flame 59050E Firebox Design

The firebox of the Real Flame 5950E has a dimension of 8.5” depth X 19.9 “height X 23.6” width. The heat output is 4780 BTU/Hr. Powered by the 1400 Watt heater the firebox works at the most optimized efficiency level. This could be sufficient for a 150 square feet living room with 8 feet ceiling height.

  • Power Consumption: – The energy efficient rating given by the UL standards is for the low volume of power consumption per hour to generate and maintain the 4780BTU per Hour. This is achieved by the heat retention property of the firebox interiors. Once the heating element reaches the highest point, the power consumption gets optimized till the temperature drops below the standard level. Then the power consumption resumes. This is one property which makes the system energy efficient.
  • Thermal Transfer: – The heat transfer rate of the firebox is consistently maintained at the value you fix using the remote control. The material shielding provided at the exteriors of the firebox prevents the heat from escaping into the interiors of the fireplace. This kind of insulation enhances the working efficiency considerably. The thermal radiation into the room remains consistent. The unique thermal sensor can vary the radiation rate depending on the room temperature you wish to preserve. The ratio of thermal transfer within the interior of the firebox and the thermal radiation is based on the thermal retention. The efficient metal used in the firebox ensures maximum heat retention over extended time. Hence the system is able to work at the peak levels with optimized power consumption. The initial time interval between the turning on of the fireplace and the attainment of maximum heat is also very less. Since the system is vent less you don’t need to provide any external ventilation. This is another method of retaining the room temperature at optimum levels of warmth and heat.
  • Screen Kit: – The screen kit is useful for protecting your children from getting into physical contact with the firebox and the mantel. The unique design of the screen also enhances the aesthetic appearance of the fireplace.

Real Flame 59050E UL Listing

The 1-UL listed Real Flame 59050E conforms to the safety and performance standards of the underwriter Laboratory. The construction and assembly of the mantel along with the exterior body is certified for high strength and functionality.

  • Safety: – The safety standards of UL guidelines for the fireplace safety include the certification of the individual components. All the Real Flame 59050E components are practically tested and certified for structural and functional stability. It applies to the panels, spare parts, assembly wrenches, L-bolts and the Allen screws as well as the fire box.
  • Fuel: – The isopropyl alcohol used in the Real Flame 59050E fireplace can be safely replaced through standard ducts once the stock is exhausted. The container is safely stacked within the interior of the firebox making it safe from accidental spills and fire accidents.

  • Efficiency Parameters: – Fuel efficiency is the basic parameter to be considered while buying the electric fireplace. The Real Flame Chateau Corner Gel Fireplace generates the hat from the central part of the firebox which spreads uniformly and consistently within your room. Once the temperature reaches a specific value (as fixed by you) the heating element temporarily stops working. The excess of heat accumulated within the interiors of the firebox keeps getting emanated into the room at constant rate. This combines with the heat absorbed by the room air molecules and the room temperature is maintained at the designated levels. Once the temperature drops to the minimum threshold level, the heating element gets turned on again. The cycle continues until you are using the system. This will help in maintaining the required temperature levels without many fluctuations.
  • Durability Parameters: – Preventive maintenance can help in increasing the durability of the fireplace considerably. The Real Flame Chateau Corner Gel Fireplace needs minimum maintenance.

The efficient utilization of the fuel by the system makes it highly energy efficient in nature. The ratio of the energy sued for burning the fuel and the volume of energy released in the form of heat into the room is always in multiples of the former. Hence the fireplace is considered to be among the most feasible systems you can find online.
  • Heating Quality: – The Home Electric Fireplace, w/38″ Mantle has a double heating element combination with multiple wattage capacity. The 750 watt heating element is stated to be the standby support for the higher capacity heater with 1500 watts. When the optimum temperature is reached during the heating process, the main heating element transfers the control to the supporting element which continues to function. The heat stored within the firebox and the 750Watt heater continue to supply the heat required to keep the room in warm/hot conditions. Once the temperature reaches the specific lower value the system triggers the functioning of the main heater once again. This sort of functionality is known to act as the energy efficiency factor as well as the power saving factor. The overall design of the fireplace can balance the heating ambience levels within the living room. The level to which the ambience is controlled depends on the temperature adjustments you make in the control panel. The control panel design takes care of avoiding the overheating of the twin heating elements. The automated power cut off system can determine the exact value of the external temperature.
