Fireplace Inserts and fireplace combinations are often mistaken, if you are building a traditional fireplace with a hearth and surround then you need a Fireplace Insert and not a combination. Fireplace Inserts are designed to be fitted with a surround and typically require a chimney breast to be installed into.
A fireplace insert is essentially the heart of the fire, usually made of cast iron, they include the grate itself and some form of decorative arch. The difference between an insert and a combination is essentially that an insert will require a surround whereas combinations come include a surround as part of a single entity. Naturally, fireplace inserts will require a chimney breast, unless you intend to install them for purely decorative purposes, in which case they can be placed into a cavity or false chimney breast. The same can be done if you intend to use your insert with an electric kit.
Cast iron inserts were a fixture in homes of the traditional architectural periods such as Victorian, Federation and Edwardian and distinguished by their period specific decorative features. Originally inserts were used as the primary source of heat and included an integrated grate to burn solid fuels such as timber or coal. Inserts are still a popular choice in new and renovated homes built in the classic styles, where decorative gas burners are usually fitted to recreate the original live fire effect.
Available as part of our mix-and-match selection, here you can choose from a range of cast-iron inserts to suit your taste and home. Fascias are often used in conjunction with a mantelpiece or surround. They contribute the first layer of decorative effect and by distancing the mantle or surround from the fireplace opening help to proportion the fireplace suite.
