Cast Iron Inserts & Combination Casts

Cast Iron Inserts

A cast iron insert is a decorative plate with complimentary front bars that incorporates a fire and comes in the form of an arched insert or a tiled insert. Many have the opportunity to burn several types of fuel

such as wood, coal, gas or electric. With the exception of the efficiency plus range and any chrome finishes, all of the inserts featured in this brochure are suitable for burning multi fuel (wood, coal), however polished and highlighted products may tarnish. When burning solid

fuel it is recommended that you choose a black finish.

 

When choosing a tiled insert it’s possible for you to select any tile set from our range. Also incorporated into this section are cast iron fascia's. These don’t feature the full depth of an insert and are combined with an inset gas fire, either open or glass fronted for extra efficiency.

& solid fuel along with traditional style tiled inserts

Fascia Cast Inserts

                                                                                         Are becoming increasingly popular to give a traditional look within a modern marble fireplace. As they come with a standard cut out, they can also take either an open inset fire, HE glass fronted fire or even a realistic 3D electric fire with matching cast iron fascia & fret. this makes them a better option than using a traditional burner tray which are very inefficient.

Combination Casts

 

As the name suggests, a combination fireplace (or combi) is a cast iron centre piece that combines many aspects of a traditional fireplace in one package. All you need to choose is your preferred fuel type and add a hearth.


All combination models have the option of solid fuel or gas, but we also offer the option of electric fires in selected models.

 

As with other cast iron products, all are suitable for burning solid fuel, however polished and highlighted products may tarnish. When burning solid fuel it is recommended that you choose a black finish.

Important Information

Important Information


All the cast iron products are delivered with a protective, oil-based coating on polished surfaces. This should be cleaned off during installation. It is recommended that a spray-type oil is applied from time to time in order to avoid surface rust appearing. Ensure that the room in which the cast iron product is being installed is thoroughly dry. For example recently plastered walls cause high levels of moisture in the atmosphere and, as a result, rust is likely to occur. Under no circumstances should a water-based cleaner or polish be used to clean cast iron products.


When using ceramic fuel beds, ensure that these do not touch any of the polished surfaces as this will help to minimise the possibility of thermal discolouration. High temperature paint is used on the black and graphite products where fires will burn. This paint will eventually burn off. A proprietary, high temperature paint can be used to re-coat your fireplace. Such paint is available from your retailer. Its your responsibility to burn smoke free fuels if you live in a smoke free zone. There are some very high temperature burning fuels which can cause damage to any fireplace.


Please refer to the Solid Fuel Association (www.solidfuel.co.uk) recommendations and use an approved coal merchant as your supplier. No responsibility can be accepted if high temperature fuels have been used or if there is excessive draft. If in doubt we recommend the use of a clay fire back. Clean ash away regularly as a build up beneath the fire will cause the grate to burn out quickly. The grate is a consumable part of your fire and will need replacing from time to time, depending on the frequency and burning temperature of your fires.

All of our marble, limestone or wood surrounds can be made to measure and selected with the majority of the cast inserts to create your own personal style to compliment whatever scheme you have in mind for your home.

 

Not all materials are compatible with all fuel types though so ask for details if you are unsure.
