Reflective Fireback shown behind grate
Our steel Reflective Firebacks will maximize the heating potential of your fireplace. These robust units with their large surface area will heat up quickly and bounce even more heat back into your home. Firebacks also act as a heat shield to protect your fireplace's back wall against fatigue. The use of a fireback is required in all types of factory built and or metal fireplaces to limit heat transfer when using the vertical Wall of Fire grate. A fireback should also be used in any masonry fireplace if the integrity of the fireplace's construction is unknown.
Our fire backs are not cast iron, they are made from heavy steel which will not shatter or crack over time like many cast fire backs tend to do.
to see how these firebacks are installed in a typical fireplace.
Our firebacks are 15½" high with permanently attached feet that extend forward 1¾" in length. This is the case for all of the firebacks listed on this page with the exception of the T-HDRF-5 and the T-HDRF-6 firebacks. These two models are 20" tall and have enlarged feet that extend forward 2¼" in length.
Our reflective firebacks are offered in three thicknesses:
Standard Duty 1/2" - Heavy Duty 3/4" - Super Duty 1"
The 1/2" firebacks are our most economical heat reflectors and are suitable for light to moderate fireplace use. A popular choice for pre-fab fireplaces.
The 3/4" firebacks are good all-purpose reflectors suitable for more frequent use. The greater mass of these units will throw back more heat while offering increased durability.
The 1" firebacks are extremely durable and designed for prolonged/constant use. More steel means more stored and returned heat, and of course, higher quality. These thicker units will soak up and reflect energy from the fire like a "heat flywheel". Later, after the fire has simmered down for the night, these super thick firebacks will continue to return their stored heat back into your home.

Product appearance and finish:
The fireback you receive may either be black (painted) or bare steel. This will be the case until we exhaust our stock of painted firebacks. Afterwards, all firebacks will be bare steel and have a metallic finish. We are doing this because the paint burns off during the first fire and has proven itself to be completely unnecessary.
1" thick firebacks as well as some of the larger 3/4" backs may be too heavy for pre-fab fireplaces to safely support, they are intended for use in full masonry fireplaces only.
Be sure that the fireback you purchase is no wider than the back wall of your fireplace. Also check to make sure that the back wall of your fireplace is tall enough to fit the fire back. Firebacks are intended to rest against the existing back wall of your fireplace (this is what supports the fireback and keeps it from falling over backwards.) Any other placement of this product will result in a dangerous situation. If you don't understand this or have questions, speak with us before placing any orders. Call 1-800-274-7364.
The back wall of my fireplace curves in at about 10 or 12 inches up, Do I have to use the shorter economy fireback?
Unless your fireplace is extremely shallow, the reflective fireback is okay to use. Once you have the reflector in place, it should be standing perfectly vertical. There will be a small space behind the fireback at the floor level (usually an inch or two.) It is a good idea to place a small stone in that gap on either side of the fireback so that the base of the unit can't be pushed backwards against the wall. Click
A word of caution:
Our reflective firebacks are quite heavy. Some weigh up to and even exceed 100 lbs. Please have a helper assist you when placing one of these units in your fireplace to avoid back strain.
