The size of the back of my fireplace that is visible measures 28" W x 30" H. What size of fireback would you suggest I purchase?
By Will M. on January 26, 2016
Answer:You should choose a fireback that is roughly 2-3" shorter than your rear wall to account for the boot height.

What boot set would I order for this fireback? Since my fireplace curves in toward the back, I need a boot set that won't raise the fireback much.
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 7, 2012
All of our boot sets will raise the height of a fireback to a degree. Our Woodfield Small Boots
would raise the fireback the least - only a couple of inches.
Nevertheless, please note that a boot set is an optional accessory for any fireback. They are not required.

Hello. We recently received this fireback. I wonder if you sell "feet" or something to set the fireback into. What is the advantage of such feet?

I would like to know how thick this fire back is. I would like to know when this fire back is inserted into the safety boots, that it can be purchased separately. How much does that add to the overall height?
By Brennan W. on January 16, 2017
Answer:The fireback is 1" thick. You will gain about 3" of height when the boots are added.

The size of my firebox is 26.5" wide and the back wall slopes forward as it goes up toward the flue. Do the feet that you can purchase allow the backing plate to slope forward?
By eFireplaceStore on June 6, 2016
Answer:The fire back boots we offer do allow a slight forward slope, as long as the fire back is angled while inserting it into the stepped slots within the boots. The forward angle allowed is no more than approximately 5 degrees.
