About cast iron Firebacks

In the distant past, the smooth cast iron firebacks were placed vertically in the hearth and they were visible on the kitchen side. This allowed especially to heat in addition to the next room.

The bottom of the fireplace are intended to be placed on the ground to send heat back to the room but also to protect masonry bricks from the heat of the fireplace. They are now because of their simplicity also laid on the vertical part of the hearth we call them simple plates. These firebacks are also designed to be placed in the bottom or on the sides of a barbecue grill .


The firebacks can also be used as a griddle for cooking.

We have different dimensions with thickness that guarantee the fire resistance.


It is recommended not to extinguish the fire with water or any other liquid product as this will cause a thermal shock and the melting will not support it.

It is also advisable not to clamp (tighten) the cast iron firebaks as the size varies with changes in temperature.
