Economy fireback shown behind grate
Our steel economy firebacks are a cheaper alternative to our high quality reflective firebacks. They shield the lower portion of your fireplace's back wall from excessive ember heat. This is the area where most fireplaces become damaged after several years of steady use. A fireback is usually an optional component in correctly built masonry fireplaces however, firebacks are required in all pre-fabricated, condominium style, and metal units when using a Wall of Fire grate. All economy firebacks are made from 3/8" thick shatter-proof steel and are 10" tall. Fireback feet are permanently attached.
Custom sizes are available. Call 1-800-274-7364 for details.
Be sure that the fireback you purchase is no wider than the back wall of your fireplace to ensure compatibility.
A fireback should NOT be used as a substitute for repair to a badly damaged fireplace back wall. Have your fireplace inspected by a professional mason or chimney sweep every year to check for any integrity issues. Never use a fireplace that is not in good or safe working order.
