The Isokern fire chest range is cast using lightweight, highly insulating pumice. The components interlock like pieces of a three dimensional jigsaw to form a sturdy, robust fireplace recess and gather. The joints are sealed using lip glue jointing compound. Starting from a suitable foundation and constructional hearth, assembly of the complete fire chest and gather could take less than one hour.
The range includes fire chests with fire openings from 500 to 1250mm wide. Each fire chest is packed on a pallet with detailed assembly instructions .The fire chest is load bearing and will carry up to 2600kg of chimney above, although you may exceed this weight with the use of additional lintels.
