Superior Clay Herringbone Fireboxes

The distinctive Herringbone pattern fireboxes that adorn palaces and castles throughout Europe are available pre-panelized for Superior Clay Rumford Fireplaces. Real firebricks available in a variety of colors, are laid in the Herringbone pattern and bonded to reinforced concrete to form three separate panels.

The exposed firebrick face most commonly used is 1.25” x 9”, which creates a thin, elegant coursing with lots of joints.

The firebox floor or hearth can either be installed by the mason prior to the installation of the Herringbone walls or ordered separately from Superior Clay in the Herringbone pattern.
