Heat recovery unit

The heat recovery unit or heat extractor distributes the heat generated by your open fireplace in all rooms of the house. You will gain in comfort and save energy.

Its operating principle is basic: it recovers warm air to diffuse it. The result is optimized chimney performance, improved interior comfort, and great energy savings. The open hearth heat recuperator, called a blower, is very easy to install, unlike the closed hearth recuperator, (like an insert or wood stove), which requires a little more work.

The basic principle for a chimney air heat recuperator consists in the fact that the room air will be sucked in by a ventilation system and will be conveyed to the heating element, placed in the center of the fireplace hearth, via a flexible sheath. Once the desired temperature is achieved, the air will be forced into the room through vents located around your chimney.

This recuperator, identical to the model 6070 E, is supplied with a steel box fixed on the floor plate. It thus settles in the chimney as easily as a hearth plate. Two possibilities of air intake, either by grid at the front of the caisson (ambient air) or by sleeve under the caisson (outside air).

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.


We realize all the dimensions of smooth and basic chimney fireback or chimney plates that you would need with also the possibility of recessing.

Our cast iron floor plates are painted black, be aware that the painting will not hold after a first exposure to fire and this paint for purpose only purpose to be presentable for sale.


We can deliver on all France and in all countries. We have a large stock of cast iron firebacks, do not hesitate to contact us for any request.
