The Dimplex Cassette 500 is one of the newest in the range of bespoke Opti-myst fires. The bespoke range are aimed at architects, builders and bespoke fireplace designers. At just over 500mm wide the Dimplex Cassette 500 differs from the Cassette 400 or 600 in more than size. It can be used to connect other Cassette 500’s or 1000’s together. This allows for added customisation of the length of fire you want to create. It can also be plumbed into your main water supply meaning that you don’t have to worry about filling up the water tank. The Dimplex Cassette 500 series also benefits from the addition of a glowing LED log bed.
It comes as standard with a remote that controls flame intensity/vapour release as well switching the flame effect on or off. The Dimplex Cassette 500 costs twice as much as the Cassette 400 so advice from your local retailer on which is more suited to you may be a good idea.
