Above RRP is for the single-sided model. Double-sided $10,999. RRP includes the engine and burn media, it does not include flueing. Burn media and flue components need to be ordered separately.
For Rinnai's latest range of premium gas fires, the Linear Collection, Rinnai’s designers took their inspiration from Aotearoa’s unique landscapes. They hand-selected driftwood washed up on our wild West Coast beaches, and stones to match those shaped by our rivers and tides. These were painstakingly recreated as perfectly lifelike ceramics.
Rinnai’s engineers then reinvented gas fire technology so flames burn more realistically and embers glow more brightly. Finally, they captured the flames in frameless panoramic enclosures, leaving next to nothing between you and the flickering warmth. The end result is the all-new Linear gas fire collection from Rinnai.
This beautifully proportioned fire will become the focal point for any room. Its generous one-metre width gives it plenty of presence, as well as plenty of heat to warm your home.
All fires in the Linear Collection are available in both single and double-sided variants.
Suitable for indoor installations only.
Ideal for living rooms and open plan areas. The versatile power flue system makes for easy installation in almost any living space, including bedrooms.
• Upper North Island, up to 118 m²
• Central and Lower North Island, up to 82 m²
• South Island, up to 69 m²
IMPORTANT: Gasfitters and builders
Linear models have adjustable wallboard support rails. The gasfitter will adjust these based on the thickness of the wall lining. It's important the gasfitter gets the wall lining information from the builder. If this is not done the wall lining will not sit flush (if a flush installation) and the cavity can overheat causing the fire to cut out.
BUILDERS: Due to the heat from the fire ensure a 50 mm clearance around the unit, including the rear (if a single-sided model). This information is included in the framing dimension pages of the installation guide. Use this in conjunction with the 'Linear additional wall lining detail' to ensure a successful installation.

The Linear has a 1.5 m cord with a three-pin plug supplied. The power cord passes through a slot in the right-hand side of the appliance.
Flame failure sensing system, pressure relief, overheat safety switch, air temperature sensor, thermal fuse, overcurrent fuse, and spark detector.
The Linear can be operated using the basic infra-red remote, or for more features, such as timers and thermostatic control, using Rinnai's Wi-Fi fireplace controller app available from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Black glass reflector side panels, designed to enhance the flame picture by producing a mirror image of the flames.
Designed to achieve a smooth edge finish without plastering against the fire.
Black powder coated metal panels designed to create a peninsular design on a double-sided model.
Yes. The majority of modern gas fires have electronic ignition and safety components that require electricity. For customers concerned with power outages, there are commercially available battery backup systems. One provider is Helio (www.heliosps.co.nz) who supply systems specifically designed for use with gas space heaters and water heaters.
For flues terminating through the roof there is a requirement for how far the flue terminal needs to be from the building. This clearance is required to ensure products of combustion are cleared adequately. Rinnai recommends the flue cowl should have a 500 mm clearance from any part of the building.
For more information, refer to the installation manual of the gas fireplace you are interested in – available on our website.
With the exception of the Compact 2 model, all Rinnai fires may be suitable to have a TV installed above them. Rinnai fires incorporate a fan that distributes warm air outwards into the room rather than directly upwards, meaning that installation of a TV may be an option.
Please refer to the Specification guide for gas fireplaces for recommended installation clearances. It is the responsibility of the owner to check the TV installation instructions with the TV supplier to verify clearances. Some TV manufacturers have warranty conditions that state a TV is not to be installed above a fireplace. Rinnai does not accept any responsibility for damage to a TV resulting from the use of this information.
This is a fireproofing box that isolates the appliance from combustible materials. For the Linear, Evolve, Symmetry and Arriva models, this is integrated into the design of the fire. For the Neo inbuilt, Ember and Compact gas fires, a zero clearance frame or box needs to be purchased in addition to the fire if the installation requires isolation from combustible materials.
For reliable operation, Rinnai gas fires should be serviced every two years (including inspection of the flue system). If they are in a particularly dusty environment or subject to excess lint (for example dog hair, or where there are newly laid carpets) then annual servicing is recommended.
