A Fireback greatly improves the appearance of an Open Fire. However it offers much more than being an attractive feature. The heavy black cast iron fire back absorbs heat from the open fire that would normally be lost through the adjacent wall or up the chimney and re-radiates this heat back into the room. Also bear in mind that a Fireback is almost everlasting which means it is an excellent investment for any home with an open fire.
