Radiant Fireback in a Zero-Clearance fireplace
Heat from each fire you burn places a lot of strain on your rear refractory panel. In the event that your rear panel starts to crack, you still have time before this crack gets larger. We recommend patching refractory panels with cement patching and installing a radiant fireback to assist in further cracking of the panel. Not only will this repair be less expensive, it will also provide a higher efficiency of heat output with the radiant fireback reflecting more of the heat back into the home. With only sheet metal behind your refractory panels, protecting these panels is of the highest priority when it comes to resisting high temperatures during a fire. Keep your home and your family safe.
Radiant Fireback in an open masonry fireplace
Approximately 80% of the heat in a firebox gets absorbed in the rear firewall causing heat damage to even the best built masonry fireplace. When installed in conjunction with a professional repair of a rear firewall a fireback can virtually stop this kind of damage. Constructed of 14 gauge, 304-alloy stainless steel, the lightweight radiant fireback will effectively reflect heat back into your room at a fraction of the cost of a traditional cast iron fireback. With open fireplaces being less efficient than a fireplace insert, anything to increase this inefficiency is high recommended! Multiple sizes are available to fit your fireplace.
