Twin-Star International™ Receives Women’s Choice Award®

Honors Duraflame™ brand as America’s most recommended Indoor Fireplaces

Delray Beach, Florida, July 22, 2014 –Twin-Star International, an award-winning home furnishings manufacturer of quality furniture, thermoelectric wine coolers and electric heaters, has been named a recipient of the 2014 Women’s Choice Award. Women across America have identified the company’s Duraflame brand of indoor fireplace heaters as one most recommended to other female consumers.

This designation is based on surveys of tens of thousands of women sent to WomenCertified Inc., the leading advocate for female consumers, assisting women when leveraging their buying power as they make decisions choosing a brand or service to purchase for herself or her family.

Duraflame Powerheat indoor fireplace heaters, available in a variety of styles and finishes, utilize up to six quartz InfraRed heating elements that provide efficient heat distribution and can quickly warm rooms up to 1,000 square feet. With a lifetime operation of over 20,000 hours, they produce a healthier heat by retaining higher levels of oxygen and moisture in the air over standard heating elements.  The heating elements stay cool to the touch so they are safe to use around children and pets.

Twin-Star International has manufactured Duraflame products since 2009. The complete range of electrical heating products include more than 30 styles of ceramic desktop heaters, ceramic oscillating tower heaters, dual quartz tower heaters, milk house heaters, oil filled heaters, parabolic heaters, micathermic heaters, electric stoves, in-fireplace inserts and infra-quartz radiant heaters.  They are available for purchase at home furnishings and electronics retailers across the country.

Robert Cohen, president and chief executive officer of Twin-Star International stated, “We are proud to accept the 2014 Women’s Choice Award for our Indoor Fireplaces.  We appreciate the confidence of women trusting our Duraflame products and recommending them to others.  We continue to strive to enrich and enhance lives by providing products that are safe, efficient, and durable.”
