Stainless Steel Heat Reflectors

Heat reflectors have a long history in Europe and have been in use almost as long as fireplaces themselves! In the old days, Heat reflectors were made of cast iron, but modern “Heat Reflector/Shields” use more efficient materials like 304-alloy stainless steel for better durability and superior heat reflection! How much more heat? How does 20-42% more heat sound?

Stainless steel heat reflectors come in several different sizes to accomodate any fireplace size.

Without a heat reflector, much of the fire's heat is absorbed into the firebox's back wall where it can cause a lot of wear and tear damage.

Heat Reflectors are the next best thing to a wood stove insert for making a room nice and toasty! Besides more heat into the room, there is another HUGE ADDED BENEFIT: Protection for your fireplace! In an unprotected masonry or Prefab firebox heat is absorbed into the firebox bricks or refractory panels, and over time, these components break down and fail due to heat exposure. Fireplace repairs of this nature are often VERY EXPENSIVE.

This damaged firebox could have lasted much longer if it had been protected by a stainless steel heat reflector.

An average Masonry Firebox Rebuild can be over $1000, and a Zero Clearance Refractory Panel Replacement is around $235! Fireplaces with a “Heat Reflector/Shield” protecting them will be exposed to 1/3 less heat, and damage to the fireplace is significantly reduced or stopped. In essence, you’re getting 33% more useful life out of your fireplace and up to 42% more heat projected into your room!!

With the heat reflector installed, the firebox back wall is now exposed to far less damaging heat because up to 42% more heat will be reflected into the room!

Testimonials

Dear A to Z,

We wanted to thank you and tell you that we were impressed by your employees and the work you did at Sunnyside Steakhouse & Lodge (Tahoe City, CA).

To reline our 50+ year old chimney, rebuild the firebox, install a fan on the top of our huge chimney, and refurbish our ornamental chimney cap was a big job.

You and your crew did it professionally, timely, and you were very clean. What we are excited about most is that we (and our guests!!) are enjoying a fire on a night when it would have been virtually impossible to do so because of the wind direction! No more chimney smoke spilling into our lodge! What you’ve done for us is fantastic. Thanks for taking this job even though it was out of your area.

Warm Regards,

~ Jeff Oxandaboure, General Manager & Janet Gregor, Lodge Manager
