1. Fireplace measurements
If you want to clad the entire fireplace with one or more plates, you will need to take the measurements of your fireplace by drawing the perimeter of your fireplace in pencil on a sheet of paper.
2. The walls
The thickness of the slabs varies from 0.8 to 1.4mm depending on the size, but they are all resistant and durable in contact with fire.
You can choose between smooth, grooved or decorated slabs.
3. Wall height
The appropriate height is that which covers the flame of the firebox, which is normally 50/60 cm.
Obviously, in order to achieve a pleasing visual effect, you must choose a slab with a height appropriate to the height of the fireplace.
4. The base
The cast-iron base not only provides greater efficiency but also gives the fireplace a new, clean and tidy look.
Drawing the plan of your fire floor and dimensioning it in every detail is the most important step.
If the base is shaped, we recommend you send a drawing complete with measurements, a cardboard or wooden template.
If there is a hole for the grate and ash tray, you will need to indicate the correct position and size or model of the grate.
5. The ash grid
The grate can be fitted either as a supplement to the cast iron cladding or as a replacement on fireplaces or stoves that have a provision.
The size of the grate should have a few mm of play in relation to the size of the housing.
If there is no seat to position the grate, we can fit support brackets to the underside of the cast iron base.
The grate can be combined with an ash drawer.
TIPS: The cast iron plates expand by 1 cm per mt in contact with heat.
In order to avoid compressions that create cracks, we recommend that you order the products taking this reduction into account or, when ordering, specify that the dimensions are without tolerance.
