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 they are again at the center of the hearth and home.
 

Efficiency

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. Cast iron firebacks, usually about 5/8" thick, store heat while the fireplace is burning and radiate it back into the room even after the fire goes out.  A good cast iron fireback can improve the heating efficiency of a fireplace by up to 50%

Stainless steel firebacks can either have a matte finish or a highly polished finish.  Stainless steel firebacks with either finish work by reflecting heat into the room.  Stainless steel ones do not store as much heat as the cast iron ones. 

By sending light and heat from the fire out into the room, a fireback is a noticeable improvement to the hearth.
 

Masonry Protection

A cast iron fireback is still the best way to protect a fire box'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 damage to the back wall. 
 

Aesthetics

As a sculptural accent in the natural focal point of a home, a fireback lends visual warmth and interest to a hearth whether it's alight with a roaring fire or lit by soft candlelight.  Even when the fire is not lit, firebacks fill in the "empty black hole."

Early firebacks (15th Century) were made in sand forms with decorations like coats of arms, religious themes, mythological subjects, and foods.  Joan of Arc's home in Domremy had one with a cross and fleur de lis pattern.

The mirror-polished stainless steel firebacks are often selected as least as much for their visual properties as for their heating properties.

Serving as a mirror, they double the firelight. When used with candles in fireplace candelabra, they make six candles have the visual impact of a dozen!

Increasingly, firebacks are used on the wall behind a range, or in other decorative ways, in parts of a home other than the fireplace.
 

Fireback Stands or FeetSaf-T-Boots for Firebacks by Pennsylvania Firebacks

While firebacks can simply be leaned against the back wall of your fireplace, their stands serve three purposes:

  • They secure the fireback in position. If firebacks are used where there is frequent vibration (such as in homes near railroad tracks, subways or highways) or there is exposure to earthquakes, stands are highly recommended.
     
  • They position the fireback at grate and firewood level instead of at the level of the firebox floor.  Thus positioned, more heat is radiated or reflected into the room and more of the fireback is visible.
     
  • They hold the fireback at the best angle for your fireplace.  If the back wall of your fireplace angles toward the room, you will definitely want to use stands. 
     

Care and Maintenance

Cast iron firebacks need little care as long as they are not exposed to moisture.  If you ever feel the need to freshen them up, use a black spray paint specifically designed to withstand high temperatures.

The cleaning of a stainless steel fireback is as convenient as it is easy.  Simply use a bit of cold ash from the bottom of your fireplace and a paper towel to shine them.
