This Firebacks section is a really fun place to shop for many homeowners. That's because the unique items you'll find here not only serve a definite functional purpose, they're also a fantastic way to make a dramatic statement that creates the fireplace focal point so many homeowners want. Firebacks absorb the heat created by a fireplace or heating appliance and radiate it outward into the home, creating smooth, even heat and protecting the fireplace masonry from some of the direct heat created by the fire. When you look at a fireplace with a Fireback in place, though, you can't help but feel like you're looking at a fireplace the way it was meant to be. All of the drama, all of the practicality, and all of the ease of use are all you can expect from the items you'll find here in the Firebacks section.
