Frequently Asked Questions

What is a rebate mantel?

All of our mantels are offered in a shallower, more common rebate depth. These require framing and drywall in order to hide the depth of the firebox itself. These are generally mandatory where the vent cannot be run out the back wall, but must be run up and out. 

What is a cabinet mantel?

Our wood mantels are offered in a cabinet depth, easing installation in a wider range of applications. Cabinet mantels eliminate the extra installation process because of their greater depth, but must be installed on an exterior wall above grade.

What is Jurastone?

Jurastone is a sculpted, true marble with a premium textured finish. This gives the mantel a graceful presence not realized using man made materials such as cement or cast stone. The Jurastone finish is a complicated finish that moves through a kiln 3 times. The final process involves hand honing the surface to achieve the final texture.

What is the ‘highlighted finish that is available on cast iron?

Highlighting involves painting the casting first, then polishing the raised portions to a pewter colour. By burnishing these finely detailed surface designs, the casing has a lovingly restored feel about it that plays with the light reflected of its surface.
