Quick Overview:

Cast Iron Fire Backs

With the range of traditional cast iron firebacks/fireplates available there is something for everyone to fit the smaller fireplace chambers through to the larger inglenook.

Sizes range from 405mm (16") wide to the 1065mm (42") wide 'Large Royal Oak' fireback, probably the largest fireback now available within the UK.

Please note that the larger firebacks are particularly heavy, therefore in the interests of Health & Safety we recommend 2/3 people are used to lift or move them.

Cast Iron Fire Backs


Most of the firebacks are copies of originals castings, some of which date back to the seventeenth century, and are ideal for those trying to maintain the historical charm of the old inglenook.

The thickness of our firebacks vary from 1/2" to 2" according to size. All firebacks are painted in black. To install simply lean the firebacks against the rear of the fireplace. Some firebacks are still hand moulded and cast in much the same way as they have been for generations.

Apart from the aesthetic value, firebacks prevent scorching of the rear brickwork and help to radiate heat - a point worth remembering when installing a gas log or coal effect fire as they are equally effective with this type of appliance as with the traditional log or coal fire.
