Back Panels and Slips sets are primarily the same as one another and are typically supplied in a variety of natural stone. However back panels often come in one large piece and often feature a pre-cut 16" x 22" hole in them ready at accept a hearth mounted fire. Slip sets are made of three pieces and are used with a chamber by bridging the gap between the inside edge of the surround and the outside edge of the chamber opening.
Ostensibly, there is no difference between back panels and slips, and each is manufactured from high quality natural stone. The only difference being that back panels are a single piece of stone with a 16" x 22" hole pre-cut, ready to accept an insert, whereas slip sets are comprised of three separate panels, two legs and a header (or jamb as its also known), that connect to achieve the same effect.
The function of back panels and slips are to place distance between the inside edge of the fireplace surround and the outer edge of the fire-chamber opening, without leaving an unsightly gap or negative space.
