Pre-manufactured fireplaces are where the unit or firebox can be placed almost directly against combustible materials like wood, walls in a smaller enclosure.

Townhomes, condos are full of them...

Sam has zero clerance and tolerance with people just lookie and no buying....

One of the new and modern type of fireplaces that can go in very tight places because they are so well insulated.

One of my favorite features in many new and remodel homes! As Sam Shueh says, these are gas fireplaces that are self contained, needing little additional construction other than venting flue.

I can only guess...it's a fireplace that doesn't need any clearance around it, because it's not going to catch anything on fire.

My house in Florida had an electric fireplace.  It really was more for ambience than anything else.
