Baby Brick Firebacks take time to build, Assembled with fire-clay mortar are very impressive and well worth the extra build time required.
We have a limited supply of bricks, old stock (Multi-coloured) that will attract a further discount depending on quantity required (Please contact for further information, Installation in Scotland and Delivery to Highlands and Islands, please supply postcode.) customer collection can be arranged (Falkirk or Leeds).
We supply two special kinds of baby brick, one with a round nose and the other with one side straight and side at an angle (bevelled). The round nosed (bullnosed) bricks are for near the surround.
The straight side of both bricks is used for building the straight part of the back and sides and the angled side is used for building the forward sloping part of the back, emulating moulded clay fire-backs.
The brickwork must be bonded and should be built with fireclay with the joints pointed and as narrow as possible 1-3mm. This can be done by using half bricks (bull nosed) to commence the first three rows of each of the two side-cheeks. The hearth bricks should be set at 90 degree to the fireplace opening. Thereafter the Baby Bricks should be angled so that the completed brickwork finishes level with the inside edge of the basket at the back. (See Drawing).
