Fireplace Hearths

 

A Fireplace hearth is a fire-resistant area placed around a fire.

The Decorative Hearth sits over the constructional hearth. This hearth is usually made from stone, slate or ceramic tiles.

Polished Granite Hearths
Unslabbed Granite hearths are not suitable for use with solid fuels as the intense heat generated may cause cracking

What Hearth Shapes are Available?

The standard hearth shape is rectangular (a flat back hearth). These flat back hearths are for use when the fireplace opening is level or just in front of the wall line (the front of the chimney breast).

Kicks
Kicks or tongues accomodate fireplaces where the fireplace opening steps back behing the wall line of the chimney breast.

Cut Outs
A cut out is required when the fireplace system is fixed in the floor and is forward of the wall line
e.g. Baxi Burnall and similar systems.

Back Hearths
if you have a large open fireplace or "Inglenook Fireplace" we can supply a separate Back Hearth with our stone hearths or incorporate it into a one piece tiled hearth as long as the size is reasonable.

Fireplace Hearth Sizes

There are strict regulations governing the size of a fireplace hearth.

For a Gas Fire the Hearth must be 15 inches in front of the flame and 2" thick.
For Solid Fuel Fires the Hearth can be flush with the floor and less than 15 inches deep provided there is a fixed fender, otherwise it must be 15 inches in front of the fire.
For a Solid Fuel Stove the Hearth must be at least 12 inches in front of the opening door of the stove.

Once the regulations are complied with the size and shape of your hearth is down to aesthetics.

If you have exposed floorboards then the hearth should fully cover the constructional hearth to avoid seeing the concrete. If your fireplace has a mantel then the hearth size will vary depending on whether the mantel stands on the hearth or the hearth sits between the mantel legs

Our Standard Sizes
A Standard Size Hearth is 54 inches x 15 inches x2 inches thick
with or without a kick (a tongue extending back) but all other sizes are available.

Individual Hearth Tiles
Individual Hearth Tiles are available in various finishes and shapes.
