Ideally suited to new builds or extensions a built-in fire is usually placed in situ first and then a false chimney breast/wall is built around the fire leaving typically only the glass and a minimal frame visible as opposed to cassette fires that utilise an existing wall/chimney, making a hole and sliding a fire into it. Our built-in fire collection includes solid fuel, gas, electric and bio fires in a variety of different shapes and sizes.
A built-in fire is ideal for new builds or for space dividing an existing interior, with a false chimney constructed around it leaving minimal glass and frame showing. Technically, built-in fires could be fitted into an existing fireplace, but it would be an appreciable amount of work to retrofit it.
Built-in fires are also typically larger than cassettes fires, and are best suited to larger interior spaces; this range of fires is particularly perfect for homes without a chimney, allowing you to construct a false chimney breast around the fire itself and change the dynamic of your room.
Many built-in fires need to have chimney ventilation above and below the firebox which helps to keep the chimney cool and allows natural convection to occur. We are often asked the difference between a cassette fire and a built-in fire, at Fireplace Products we define a built-in fire as a fire that you place in situ and build a wall around it.
This range of fire can technically be installed into existing fireplaces but often a lot of building work is required to achieve this, whereas cassette fires can be usually be easily fitted into an existing fireplace opening with minimal building work required.
