There is a call from people wanting to have an open fire that looks like a traditional brick fireplace. To build this type of fire to not smoke involves some complexity in building a smoke shelf and chimney of the right proportions.
Our steel damper units come in a range of sizes from 850mm to 1500mm wide. They have all the right sizes and proportions to collect the smoke and push it up the chimney. They are built into the brick chimney directly above the fireplace opening so that they are not visible from the room. This gives the effect of an open brick fireplace without the worry of going the more complex brickwork route.
In addition to the ease of installation, our damper units have an adjustable chimney control designed to maximize heat from the fire- a considerable improvement over a normal brick fireplace. Couple the damper with one of our Basket Grate and Pans, providing a sturdy grate to hold the burning embers and an ash-pan located beneath the grate for easy cleaning of the ashes.
