Pennsylvania Firebacks is one of the leading manufacturers in their industry. Firebacks - The Art of Warming
In earlier times, the well appointed fireplace was never considered complete unless it included
a cast iron fireback. Today, the fireback's usefulness and charm have been rediscovered and are
again at the center of the hearth and home.
Positioned against the back wall of a fireplace, a fireback protects the masonry of the back wall
and radiates the heat of the fire forward. By reflecting light and heat from the fire out into the room,
a fireback is a noticeable improvement to the hearth. This warmth is gained whether a fireback is
used with wood fires or gas logs.
A cast iron fireback is still the best way to protect a hearth's back wall from decay. Despite advances in technology, the harsh rays of the fire render even modern refractory material vulnerable to damage and the likelihood of expensive repairs. A fireback will effectively prevent any further damage to the back wall.
As a sculptural accent in what is usually the natural focal point of a home, a fireback lends visual warmth and interest to a hearth whether it's with a roaring fire or by soft candlelight.
