Fire Backs

 

The intense heat of the wood fires can cause bricks at the backs of fireplaces to crumble. One of the first uses of cast iron was to make cast iron firebacks to prevent this from occurring. Another advantage is that firebacks reflect heat back into the room. Emblems, crests, initials, or brands can be cast onto the firebacks. We cast firebacks in ductile iron, which reduces the chances of the fireback from cracking.
