Classical arched inserts

Posted by Fire 24/07/2016 0 Comment(s)

Based on an original design dating from 1895, the popular fireplace combines both insert and mantel in a single unit. It is, therefore, very easy to install and saves the additional expense of a separate mantel, whilst compact dimensions make it particularly suitable for smaller chimney breasts. The Combination tiled insert is a vailable in traditional matt black and highlight polished versions and can be fitted with an optional gas fire.

 

Originally created around 1880, the Classical Arched insert has become an icon of timeless design that is just as appropriate for 21st Century décor as it was for period homes. The elegant, understated lines can be complemented by either the cleaner look of contemporary mantels or the charming decorative detail of an Adam, Regency or beautiful stone mantel. The Classical Arched Insert is available in three finishes:  traditional matt black, highlight polished and fully polished. A gas fire option is available.

 

Cast relief baffle – the baffle plate to the rear of the fire features an attractive coat of arms motif. When burning solid fuels, this baffle can be closed when the fire is not in use. If a gas fire is fitted, however, regulations require the baffle to be permanently secured in the open position.

The Decorative Arched Insert pre-dates the Classical model by some 30 years, having been designed around the time of the Great Exhibition in 1851. Accordingly, it incorporates elements of Greek and Roman detailing which were frequently adopted as ornamentation, itself a reflection of Britain’s growing sense of grandeur and Empire.

 

Cast relief baffle – the baffle plate to the rear of the fire features an appealing fan-shape motif within an outer linked chain design. When burning solid fuels, this baffle can be closed when the fire is not in use. If a gas fire is fitted, however, regulations require the baffle to be permanently secured in the open position. 

 

Incorporating gentle curves and impressive detailing, the Horseshoe Insert was originally designed circa 1842. Today, Stovax manufactures this model in three distinctive and authentic finishes: traditional matt black, highlight polished and fully polished. It is also available in the original version or with a slightly revised front that accommodates an ashpan cover.

The Hob Grate Insert design in the Stovax Clasic Fireplaces range was originally produced circa 1827, during the reign of George IV (formerly the Prince Regent). The ‘hobs’ either side of the grate were used for small saucepans and kettles, making this fireplace particularly appropriate for dining rooms as well as living rooms.
