For your double-sided fireplace, no gas logs offer greater durability, versatility, or a better look than R. H. Peterson. My favorite styles are the Split Oak Designer Plus gas log set, Charred Oak gas logs, or American Oak logs. There are many other great choices, but these three look and perform the best. For a see-through fireplace, you won't find better choices.

The Best Gas Logs for a Double-Sided Fireplace (or, See-Through Fireplace)

February 10th, 2017

See-through fireplaces offer unique challenges when outfitting them with gas logs. First, you have to have the right kind of burner. The typical burner for see-through gas log fireplaces is rectangular, not trapezoidal. Also, it has three burner tubes producing a much higher BTU rating. And of course you have to have logs to suit. Front and rear logs are normally different - with these sets they are the same. They also have more detailing applied, usually the rear logs don't need as much intricacy. Manufacturers make standard gas logs to look great from one side. But, they need to design "see-through" log sets to look great from any angle.

You have the same choices of control and gas with see-through or double-sided fireplaces as with any gas fireplace. Many people like electronic ignition with a remote-controlled flame. You can also choose the simple match-light option. You'll have to measure your fireplace dimensions to see what kind of burner you can fit.

Then it's time to choose the right gas logs. As I mentioned in my previous blog post about realistic gas logs, choose a wood look to match your surroundings. The great news is that R. H. Peterson makes all types of looks. One of the log sets I suggest is the Split Oak Designer Plus. This log set is hand painted with intricate detail to make it look just like freshly cut logs every time you fire it up. My customers agree, Charred Oak and American Oak are beautifully crafted gas logs and make great options, too.

You also have the option of making a glass fire or other modern alternative in your see-through fireplace. Using a variant of the G45 gas burner, you can have Fyre Glass, Diamond Nuggets, River Rock or Geometric Shapes in your double-sided Fireplace. So you have plenty of options.

Give me a call with your dimensions and the type of control you're thinking about. I can talk you through your options. Then, I'll help you choose the best burner and gas logs for your double-sided fireplace. My number here is 1-800-201-1193 x 137. I'll get you the best deal, too.
