Replacement Refractory panel
March 3, 2015
Simple process to replace the panel. I pulled the old one out , used it as a template, made the cuts and reinstalled. Helpful hint do not cut this in a closed garage, you will have a dust storm :)

So glad to find this
February 19, 2015
My heart sank when I realized the back panel of my fireplace insert was crumbling. After an on-line search I was very happy to find this product. It was delivered very fast, packaged well and pretty easy to cut and install. I read and followed the instructions for breaking it in and we are once again enjoying a fire in our fireplace!

Good panel for replacement on Marco units
February 9, 2015
If you have a Marco fireplace there are NO replacement panels made as they closed in 1996. Replacing the panel is ridiculously easy except for the actual weight of the panel, they weigh 50 or 60 lbs. and you have to cut it to fit.. Concrete circular saw blades are only a few dollars at home depot. You do NOT need $40 diamond blade. The cheap ones work fine for small job like this. Anyone with circular saw can do it. I had to replace my rear panel and the whole job took about an hour. Any local handyman can do this easily.

Made my insert look like new
February 3, 2015
I bought a replacement refractory panel for my fireplace insert. It arrived quickly and was very well packaged, no issues at all. I read the reviews and instructions carefully and had no problem cutting it to size with my diamond blade circular saw. It installed pretty easy and quick, took a couple of hours for measuring, cutting and installation. I am currently doing the break-in burns as required by the warranty and so far I couldn't be more pleased! It is as good as new!

GREAT PRODUCT
January 23, 2015
Purchased this because the original back panel in my Heatilator was cracked and crumbling. It was easy to remove although a little messy, because I had to break it apart. Being a retired brick & stone mason, I had a diamond blade for my circular saw, so it was not to difficult to cut to fit. Also the original panel was 3/4" thick, and the new panel was 1" thick. Much better in my opinion! If you are a do-it -yourselfer I would highly recommend this product.

Overall good experience.

For the most part I'm satisfied. However one panel was cracked and fell apart when taking out of the package. It broke however, in a spot where the size was workable to where I use it.
Pros:
As advertised and shipped as promised
Cons:
Damaged panel on delivery but was able to make it worked so that there wasn't a delay in installation.

Good panels
January 13, 2015
All the items I ordered came in just fine. The refractory panel was easy to cut to size. The only thing is that no one on Any site looked at mentioned that the original panels sometimes have a notch in the lower edge for the hearth panel to fit into. Folding the sturdy cardboard packaging the panel came in at the crease on one side, I was able to make a sturdy enough right angle surface for my saw to ride on at right angles to the face of the panel to do the back cut of the notch. Just takes careful measurement. The overall size of the panel includes this notch, so if you DON"T make it the whole panel sits on top of the hearth panel and will be too tall, as well as allowing heat from you fire a direct passage to the sides or back metal enclosure.

Great product and customer service
January 7, 2015
We ordered this panel along with 2 other panels. The first two arrived on a freight truck and were in perfect condition. When this panel was shipped from the manufacturer, it wasn't packaged properly so the panel was broken when it arrived. This happened twice with cracks right down the middle. However, the third panel was given extra padding and it arrived in perfect condition.The customer service was excellent in getting the panel replaced. I highly recommend this company for their product as well as the friendly and courteous customer service.
Pros:
Friendly and courteous customer service. Great product that should last for year.
Cons:
Lack of proper packaging to prevent item from being damaged in transit. It took several blades to cut each panel but the results were great.

So glad I purchased this panel!
January 7, 2015
I used this panel to replace the back panel to my insert. I was hesitant to purchase the panel since I was worried I would not be able to cut it to fit. My back panel is wider at the top than bottom and was sloped on both sides to I had to make 5 cuts using a circular saw with masonry blades. I did use 3 cheap masonry blades so someone with better blades may not find it so difficult. I had two ends that split off small pieces when I reached the end of the cut. Probably user error. Maybe I went too fast or too slow or was applying to much pressure. I did cut slightly larger than my measurements since there was some deterioration of the old panel. I installed the panel with little difficulty, lit 6 small fires to cure it and now use it as intended with no problems!

Great Product
January 4, 2015
My fireplace is smaller than this panel but finding one the size I needed turned into a problem, but after reading the info on your website and the ease of being able to cut them to size I decided to try it. When it arrived I had it cut to size and installed in less than 30 min. It is a great product, packaged well and shipping was fast, I had my panel arrive in Arizona in less tan a week.
Pros:
Well packaged to protect the panel. Fast shipping Very easy to cut to size Easy to install Highly recommended
Cons:
Couldn't find any

Fine part so far
December 29, 2014
I needed a replacement back panel for my fireplace. Quick internet search pointed me to the Hargrove Panels. It came very well packaged in sturdy cardboard box, Styrofoam and black foam inserts. The panel is thicker than my original one by about 1/4" to overall of about 1" thick. It does not have a steel reinforcement that would've been nice and hence probably the extra thickness. I had to purchase a diamond-tipped saw blade to cut it to size, and with that it was really easy to cut even at 45 degrees angle. All installed and cured to manufacturer's recommendations. So far so good.
Pros:
Can be cut to size relatively easy. Thick enough and matches overall appearance of my original panel.
Cons:
Does not have a steel reinforcement. Has to go through 24-hour curing cycle.

Saved Me Money
December 4, 2014
After contacting a company in town to buy the back refractory wall, I learned that it was no longer offered. I had to purchase all 3 walls or buy a new fireplace. The salesperson referred me to eFireplace and suggested that I purchase this item and have it cut and installed. The price was perfect, it saved me money and works just as it should. I am thankful the salesperson referred me to this site and product. I would definitely recommend this refractory wall!
Pros:
The price was great compared to my options. It was my only option!! Love it!!!
Cons:
None

November 28, 2014
Great product. I didn't want to leave a review until it was cut, installed, and used for a couple of days. The product is as described. The only thing I would add, is make sure you aren't attached to your saw blade. Cutting just this one piece chewed up an entire blade. So make sure you have a couple masonry blades or use a diamond blade. Other than that, great price, looks great and is working great.

rear refractory panel
October 30, 2014
well worth it! was in contact with another company looking for just a rear panel. Was informed from them that I would need to buy all sides as well since they only make the full unit for Marco fireplaces and would cost 550 dollars but well worth it considering the cost of buying a new fire place. did not even tell me about the blanks that I could cut to size. This product was easy enough to cut with a 4 inch diamond blade on my skill saw, cost of blade was only 7dollars,
Pros:
price, quick delivery and easy to cut with the right tools, would recommend
Cons:
first one delivered was cracked, had to take a picture and send to manufacturer. Did not get the greatest service through emails with the manufacturer. Sent several emails just to see what to do with the old one and when would I expect another one to ship. Didn't like the fact that the customer is responsible for getting rid of the damaged one received but I did make use out of it. Cut it in half and put in front of the one I replaced to prevent the rack from damaging the rear panel overtime (which probably causes 90 percent of refractory damage)

Refractory Panel
May 25, 2014
I was very pleased with the speedy service from this store. I cut the panel with a combination of masonry blades in a skill saw and a diamond blade in a small grinder . I found that the diamond blade was the easier way to go . Less mess and the beveled edges and final fitting were simple to accomplish . I haven't needed the fireplace since I replaced the back panel but I will certainly be purchasing a fireback to protect the panel I just replaced. Satisfied with the service but the product won't get a workout until fall .

Easy to cut with an angle grinder and a stone cutting blade. Heavy, but not too heavy to manage while cutting and manipulate into place. Don't be mislead by the posted delivery time of 10 business days. Mine arrived 4 days after I ordered it.
Pros:
Easy to cut Easy to manipulate into place

Is as Advertised
November 6, 2013
The panel arrived well packed and in excellent condition. I have not installed it yet but upon examination, I see that it can be cut easily with an industrial diamond saw like any tile cutting saw. It is an excellent replacement for the 2000 model Superior fireplace we have even though the color and tile size is different than our model. It will be used as a rear panel and will not show much. The product does come with a rounded side (a radius) so it could be used for a side panel on our model. Other sites have similar products and have a lower price but will then charge $80 for shipping. The all-in-one price is fair.

Good replacement fireplace panel
January 17, 2012
This item worked great as a replacement panel to a cracked back panel in my house. I think the old panel was cracked due to too much heat, and replacing this with 1 solid piece let me more at ease that something wasn't going to catch on fire. Just make sure you have a diamond blade bit for your saw to cut this down to size to fit in your fireplace, and you should be good to go.

Review of refactory panel
January 13, 2011
I found that this panel is a lot larger (thickness) than the one I replaced. It was easy to cut once I found out what to use to cut it. This produce installed with no problem. I replaced only the back panel and after about a month I noticed a slight crack in the panel. I have no idea what might have caused this. At this time the crack is not causing a problem. Overall, I am compleatly satisfied with this product.



By Mort from California on January 1, 2013
This panel works for my replacement needs, but I would like to know if one is offered in a 1-inch thickness.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 2, 2013

Answer:
Unfortunately, no. This is our only universal refractory replacement panel, and it is 3/4" thick. The missing 1/4" will not make a functional difference, and it is still a suitable replacement. You just may need to use a vise grip to modify the retaining bracket to hold it in place.

By Corey from Cincinnati, OH on December 17, 2014
I have a Heatilator Mark 123-3036 wood burning fireplace insert in my house. The back liner has some minor cracks in it that have been patched. Which would be the best option, purchase a new replacement panel such as the Hargrove one on this page or getting a large cast iron fireback until I can get it replaced (and continue to use the fireback)?
By eFireplaceStore on December 17, 2014

Answer:
While ultimately replacing the panel would be ideal, using a fire back will be an excellent way to prolong use of the unit as it stands and will be a great addition to the unit for radiant heat purposes. The fire back will also serve to protect the new liner from excessive heat and log impacts.

By David from FL on July 24, 2014
I need the bottom panel as well. Do you have that?
By eFireplaceStore on July 25, 2014

Answer:
Bottom panels are generally manufacturer specific, due to their taper and the shape of the front ash lip. If you would like to provide the manufacturer name and model number of your fireplace, I will be happy to check availability of the bottom panel.

I have a Marco Model 792768 fireplace insert and I need just the back refractory panel. Do you have just that piece available?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 18, 2014

Answer:
Unfortunately, we do not have access to the original refractory panels for this model of fireplace. However, we do offer universal replacement panels, such as the Hargrove Replacement Fireplace Refractory Panel - 24 inch X 28 inch. The panel can be cut with a tile saw or a circular saw equipped with a masonry blade.

Can these panels be used in an existing steel fire box that is bent after a chimney fire?

By Don from Kankakee , IL on January 6, 2015
Where would I find the make and model of my fireplace?
By Chris C. on January 6, 2015

Answer:
Most commonly, manufacturers will place the rating plate relatively close to the opening of the fireplace. I would check just above the refractory panels on either the left or right hand side directly behind the screens, or possibly even above the screens just inside the opening of the fireplace. The plate will be attached to the chassis of the fireplace with rivets, or simply adhered to the unit.
By Kelley from Charlotte, NC on January 6, 2015

Answer:
I found the make and model of my fireplace on the inside plate inside the fireplace. However, the replacement refractory panel I used was somewhat generic and fits many different makes/models. I measured the panel that I needed to replace and called the store to make sure it would work.
By Tom from Jasper, GA on January 6, 2015

Answer:
We went by the size needed and removed the old rear cracked piece and cut the new one to fit including beveling the ends for a tight fit, then sealed with a mortar caulking with a caulk gun.
By Matt from CA on January 6, 2015

Answer:
I actually was not able to find the make and model of my fireplace (30 year old unit) - instead I just measured the size and thickness of the current ceramic panel and ensured that I had a fit (i.e. my panel was smaller than the replacement). Then I removed the existing panel when the replacement appeared and cut the new one to the exact size of the old one.

It worked fine. All you need is a skill saw and a ceramic blade.
By Bill from Chicago, IL on January 6, 2015

Answer:
I have a Heatilator and the model number is on a plate on the front right side. As long as the panel you are buying is at least as big as the one you are replacing you should be fine. I bought a paver brick cutting blade for my circular saw and it cut the material easily. I took the back panel out which is what I was replacing. I then cut the new piece down to an exact size. It fit well even though the new panel was a quarter inch thicker. Be sure to follow the curing instructions before building a large fire.
By Tom from Saugus, CA on January 6, 2015

Answer:
Good luck if you are in a tract home. I searched high and low for mine but to no avail. I ended up taking the basic measurements and then I bought these. They worked very well after performing some simple cuts to get the perfect fit. The panels are surprisingly heavy but they cut well with a masonry blade. These panels are really nice products.
By Sonja from FL on January 7, 2015

Answer:
My handyman just measured the existing one and ordered the closest match to our cracked piece. He had to trim a little but all in all it worked nicely. It's not a perfect match but a little soot will solve that. We chose the heavier material for wood burning.
By JoAnn from FL on January 7, 2015

Answer:
I have a fireplace insert. The make and model numbers are located on a small metal plate on the left front frame behind the edge of the glass door. I have to use a flashlight to actually read the numbers. I hope this helps.
By Diana from GA on January 7, 2015

Answer:
Ours is located on the metal frame of the fireplace in the front upper left corner. As you can see from the picture, it was hard to read. We replaced all the panels due to deterioration over the years and the fireplace works great! I hope this helps.
By Scott from AL on January 7, 2015

Answer:
It should be on a tag or sticker on one of the inside metal panels.
By Lowell from Lexington, SC on January 7, 2015

Answer:
Mine is a Heatilator Fireplace and the model number is at the top left of the firebox.
By Randy from Chicago, IL on January 7, 2015

Answer:
My Majestic fireplace has a metal nameplate in the upper right hand corner of the black cross-piece in the front. It has all the details of the fireplace, but related to this universal fit product, you don't need the make and model. The piece comes oversized with one side tapered so you can cut it down to fit either a side or the back refractory panel of almost any model. I used it to replace the back panel but sliding the two side panels forward an inch or so and then lifting it out the front. I kept one side of the taper the same and the other side I cut it at a taper with a tile saw I got from a "discount/chinamade" tool place and 4" diamond blade for about $50 total (tool and blade). I created a taper by putting a 2x4 on the panel and run the blade at an angle. It worked great but made an enormous amount of dust. I highly recommend doing this outside away from anything you don't want dusty. After installing it, it fit perfect and matches the sides almost perfectly. I hope this helps answer your question.

By Kevin from Hampton, NH on December 6, 2013
I have a pre-fab zero clearance metal fireplace unit and need to repair wear and tear to the unit. Can I utilize these refractory panels to do such a job? It is a wood burning unit.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 6, 2013

Answer:
These panels are indeed the correct product to use to reline a wood burning prefab box. They can be cut to size by using a tile saw or a circular saw equipped with a masonry blade.

By Robert from Cartersville, GA on March 3, 2014
What is this product made out of? Is it vermiculite or recycled brick on lathe?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 4, 2014

Answer:
These panels are made out of a silicate and aluminum based refractory cement. They are cast as a solid panel with the brick pattern stamped into the mold as the product is curing.

By Jack from Chicago, Illinois on December 18, 2011
Can these panels be cut to fit as replacements of other manufacturer's refractory panels that are no longer available?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on December 19, 2011

Answer:
Absolutely. You would simply need a circular saw with a masonry blade to cut these panels to the appropriate size.

By Steve from Eldersburg, MD on July 27, 2014
I need to replace the two side, one back and one bottom refractory on my Heatilator NA-42. I guess I will also need the clips. Can you help me?
By eFireplaceStore on July 28, 2014

Answer:
We offer the universal Hargrove panels that you are viewing now, but we are unable to procure the Heatilator panels and clips. Heatilator is one of the Hearth and Home brands of fireplace, which are not sold online. Factory parts can only be obtained through a local Heatiltor dealer. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
By Robert from 27540 on July 28, 2014

Answer:
Hi Steve,
If I lived closer I would come help you with the swap.

The panels are very easy to replace. Typically, the brackets which hold the panels in place are rarely in need of replacement, however, please check your to be certain prior to ordering the new panels. The panels may need to be cut, which is easily done with a mason blade on a saw or grinder.

I hope that this helps.

One last thing, please be sure to cure the new panels with several small fires prior to having a larger fire as this will allow the panels to fully harden and dry which results in a longer lasting product.

Best,
Robert

By Tyler M. on October 27, 2014

Answer:
While these panels can indeed be cut to fit inside a manufactured woodburning fireplace, they are only available with 3/4" thickness.
By Cynthia from Evans, GA on October 28, 2014

Answer:
Yes, it can be cut to size. We used a wet tile cutter successfully. It looked very good when we were done. This is a great product.
By Chuck from Conway, SC on October 28, 2014

Answer:
yes, it comes in 1/2" thickness and can be easily cut with a small 4 1/2" disc grinder with a mason wheel on it. always remember to measure twice and cut once as to not cut it too small. if cutting for a back panel, make sure to use the beveled side for one side and bevel the other side after you cut it to full measurement size of width and height...

What do you use to cut this refractory panel?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 8, 2011

Answer:
A masonry saw would be most appropriate for cutting these refractory panels.

By Mario from Austin, TX on January 11, 2015
How thick is this refractory panel?
By eFireplaceStore on January 12, 2015

Answer:
This product has a nominal thickness of 1 inch.
By Josh from AL on January 12, 2015

Answer:
This is 1 inch thick.
By Bill from Chicago, IL on January 12, 2015

Answer:
This piece is 1 inch thick. This panel was a bit thicker than the original one but ,with a paver brick blade on my circular saw, I trimmed it down to fit the corners just fine.
By Wayne from Lewisville, NC on January 12, 2015

Answer:
These panels are 1 inch thick. I had to shim my panel with some pieces I cut off so it would fit in a 2 inch gap in my fireplace. This panel works great.
By Ian G from NY on January 12, 2015

Answer:
It's about 1" thick and it cut pretty easily with a diamond saw.
By Jay from NC on January 12, 2015

Answer:
It is 1" thick. I had to cut it with a circular saw with a stone cutting blade. It cut very nicely.
By Dean from TX on January 12, 2015

Answer:
It's about 3/4 - 1" thick and it works great. It radiates the heat out into the room better than the old one. One drawback is the cutting to fit (if needed).
By Hank from NJ on January 13, 2015

Answer:
This panel is one inch thick.

By Susan from Fletcher, NC on November 8, 2011
We would like to put ventless gas log in our fireplace, but we painted the inside of our fireplace and we are not sure what to do, we did not use heat resistant paint any suggestions. Should we put in fireplace panels?

By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 9, 2011

Answer:
You may install these panels to cover the interior walls of your fireplace. However, a cheaper option may be to sand off the existing paint and go back with High Temp rated paint. Please follow the below link to see one of our options.

When I line my fireplace with these panels, how do I seal joints?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 9, 2011

Answer:
Generally, no mortar is required to seal these panels. You would simply cut them to overlap as they are installed.

By Mike from NJ on August 24, 2014
Unfortunately, i have a Howard System True Heat Firebox, and the back and bottom panels measure 1 1/2" thick. Will these panels work even though the thickness is not there or am i going to have to pour a cast in place piece?
By eFireplaceStore on August 25, 2014

Answer:
It has been some time since I have come across this brand, but I do recall that the unit relies on the thickness of the liners to properly insulate the area above and behind the unit. As such, damaged liners will indeed require that a form be made, using the old liners as a template. You can then custom cast replacements from refractory cement, such as the Rutland Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement - 25 Pound Tub.

By Peggy from St Augustine, FL on December 13, 2014
Can I use this panel for the floor of my fireplace? I need it for the back and the floor. Also, how do I install this? Is there an adhesive that is needed?
By eFireplaceStore on December 15, 2014

Answer:
If the panel will be large enough at the leading edge, it can indeed be used as a floor panel. We can also special order the hearth panel for many units, as long as you are able to provide the manufacturer name and model number of the unit. In most models, the side panels are held in place with retaining brackets along the top edge of each section. Removing those panels allows you to tilt the back panel forward and remove it. With the sides and back removed, you can then slide the bottom panel rearward from under the front retaining lip and then lift it from the base of the unit.

By Paul Dunphy from Newport OREGON on December 19, 2011
Our Heatilator Model A36C / GR18 is only 2 years old, but the rear firebrick panel has deteriorated through. The panel above, Hargrove - would that be a suitable replacement? Mentioned that it can be cut to fit. I have diamond tile/masonary blades to cut - would that work?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 19, 2011

Answer:
You can most certainly utilize this panel as a replacement and it can indeed be cut with a masonry saw. Please be sure to check the thickness of the current panel, as this replacement will need to occupy the same channel the current model sits in. This panel is 3/4" thick.

By Matt from Houston, TX on July 12, 2014
Can you send me the dimensions of the individual brick for this panel?
By eFireplaceStore on July 14, 2014

Answer:
The stamped brick pattern used in this panel measures 3 inches tall by 8 inches in width.

Answer:
They are 7.25 x 2.50

Answer:
8" x 2.5"

Answer:
The individual bricks measure 7.5 inches by 2.25 inches

By Joyce from Port O'Connor, TX on December 13, 2014
Does some type of glue or mortar need to be used when replacing the back refractory panel of a fireplace?
By Tyler M. on December 15, 2014

Answer:
No adhesive needs to be used as the heat will cause the panel to expand and crack if installed in such a manner. The panel(s) should be installed using retaining clips inside the manufactured firebox.

By Luis from CO on February 2, 2014
Can I use this in a wood burning fire place?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 3, 2014

Answer:
This panel is indeed the correct product to use in a wood burning application. It can be cut with a tile saw or a circular saw equipped with a masonry blade.

By Wayne from Marietta, Georgia on January 21, 2013
I currently have a Martin fireplace (installed 12/82) which has been bought out by Monneson and they don't carry any Martin parts. I need the lower left refractory section which is 15" x 13" and appears to be 2" thick in some areas and about 1" in other areas ( I didn't want to remove panels yet to find out the exact thickness). Do you have panels that can be cut to size and have that thickness? Also If I am not able to locate and purchase new panels, what are the chances that a fireplace repair tech can acquire and install this? Also if I am out of luck and need a new firebox (42"w x 24" H x18" deep, which all these measurements are approximate), Can you give me any idea of some ballpark figure as to how much money this would cost to have installed? Thanks for any advice you can give me!
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 22, 2013

Answer:
The Hargrove brand of panel you are viewing is currently the only universal style of refractory panel that we offer. The panel is 3/4 of an inch thick, so it would not suit your needs well. It is possible that a dealer or technician may still have liner parts for this unit, but given the age of the unit, it will be difficult to say. It is often necessary to custom cast replacement panels for these older units, using refractory cement.

If you do choose to replace the unit with a similar model, total cost of the unit and installation will depend largely on labor costs in your area and the cost of the unit you end up purchasing.

By Tammy from Kennesaw, GA on October 5, 2014
My refractory panel has cracks. Can I put a fire back in front of it instead of replacing the panel itself?

By eFireplaceStore on October 6, 2014

Answer:
Because the refractory panels are largely for appearance purposes, you can indeed place a fireback in front of the cracked panel, if you do not wish to replace the panel right away.

By James from San Antonio, TX on March 3, 2015
What is the best way to secure these new refractory panels to my older ones?
By Chris C. on March 4, 2015

Answer:
When replacing the refractory panels in prefabricated fireplaces with these Hargrove panels, the existing panels are first removed, and the Hargrove panels take the place of the previous panels. You should locate a "Z" shaped clip holding the existing panels in place.

By Maurice from Vallejo, CA on November 19, 2014
Does this product come in a 3/4 inch thickness?
By eFireplaceStore on November 20, 2014

Answer:
Unfortunately, this item is no longer available in a 3/4 inch version. The manufacturer recently thickened the panels to 1 inch to cut down on breakage and the 3/4 inch version was discontinued. I apologize for the inconvenience.

By Kevin from Allentown, PA on November 17, 2014
I have a cracked back panel that is 20 inches high and 24 inches wide. Will this Hargrove panel work as a replacement? Also, my side and bottom panels are not cracked but should I go ahead and replace them all?
By Tyler M. on November 17, 2014

Answer:
If the crack is more than a hairline fracture, then yes, we recommend a replacement and this panel is suitable for such a purpose. Please note that this panel is about one inch thick and will need to be cut to size on site.
By Jerry from Columbia, TN on November 17, 2014

Answer:
The back panel you are replacing was the same size that I had to replace. It will work fine with your side panels as I did not have to replace mine. When you get the new panel, follow the instructions on curing and it should last many years to come
By Ralph from Macon, GA on November 17, 2014

Answer:
I had the same problem and this panel works very well. My side panels did not need replacing. Be sure to 'season' the new panel with several small fires.
By Neal from Birmingham, AL on November 18, 2014

Answer:
It should work. The ends of my panel were beveled so make sure you cut the new panel the exact shape of the old panel. I would only replace panels that are cracked.
By Yas from OH on November 18, 2014

Answer:
The same thing happened to me. You don't need to replace the side panels but you'll need to get the refractory back properly sized and cut. I hope this helps.
By Tom from Ballground, GA on November 18, 2014

Answer:
Our homeowner has the same cracked rear panel, we are only replacing the rear, either by removing the old panel if possible or overlaying the bad panel with the new panel. We plan to cut the new panel with a concrete saw blade to fit either way and secure it with a heat resistant caulk or sealant.
I hope this answers your question.
By Natalie from Columbia, SC on November 18, 2014

Answer:
Yes, this will work. We ordered the exact same one. You only need to replace the one panel that is cracked.
By Erik from NYC, NY on November 18, 2014

Answer:
Usually, just the back and bottom panels need replacement but replacing them all at once looks a lot better.
By Jo Ann from FL on November 18, 2014

Answer:
I only replaced the back panel since it was the only one cracked (due to pushing wood against it). The side panels had no cracks and were not "weather worn" even though they are 24 years old. The bottom panel had hairline cracks. I cured the new panel with several small fires and have had no issues even though I have moved up to larger fires. I am very happy with this product!
By Stan from Cozad, NE on November 18, 2014

Answer:
I'm not sure how thick your back panel is but this product should be fine. As for replacing all of the panels but it shouldn't be necessary. I have only used the panel for a few weeks as my bottom panel and seems to be working well. it is easy to cut to shape with a concrete saw.
By Lowell from Lexington, SC on November 18, 2014

Answer:
This panel should work just fine. I tried replacing just my back panel when the side ones looked OK but they fell apart when I took them out. I don't know the age of your panels but if the back one needs replacing, I would go ahead and replace the sides as well.
By Dave from Kansas City, MO on November 18, 2014

Answer:
Yes, I believe this panel will work for you. You will need to cut the new panel to size with a concrete saw or a concrete blade on a circular saw.
It takes a little time but it can be done.

By Ron from Fort Washington, MD on October 24, 2013
I'm replacing a panel 20" x 18". What panels do you have closest to this size?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 24, 2013

Answer:
If it is a refractory cement panel from a wood burning fireplace, the Hargrove panel you are currently viewing is the closest size we have. It can be cut down with a masonry saw or tile saw.

By Ron from Fort Washington, MD on October 24, 2013
I'm replacing a panel 20" x 18". What panels do you have closest to this size?

By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on October 24, 2013

Answer:
This is indeed the closest replacement refractory panel to that size that we carry. This panel is 3/4" thick and can be cut to your needed 20" x 18" size with a masonry blade.

By Emmet from Blacksburg, VA on December 21, 2011
Is this price for a set of 2 - 24 inch x 28 inch panels?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 22, 2011

Answer:
No, this price is for one 24" x 28" panel. We offer these panels in one 24" x 28" panel on this page and also in a set of two 24" x 40" panels, which you can find here:

Hargrove Replacement Fireplace Refractory Panels - 24 inch X 40 inch - Set of 2

By Dave from NY on January 17, 2014
What kind of saw is required to cut these panels?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 20, 2014

Answer:
Either a tile saw or a circular saw equipped with a masonry blade can be used to cut the panels. The latter of the two is the better option.

By Patty from Rapidan, VA on November 9, 2013
Can this be used in a wood burning fireplace? I just moved into a home with a wood burning fireplace. The fireplace has never been used but was missing the side panel. This looks like the closest match that I have seen so far. Can I also get it in a smaller size? I only need one. I noticed that they come in a set of two.
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on November 11, 2013

Answer:
Yes, this panel is suitable for use inside any manufactured woodburning fireplace. This is the smallest such panel we sell, and it can be cut to the size you need with a tile saw or any masonry blade.

By Lewis from Sacramento, CA on December 13, 2013
What is the brick imprint measurement and color?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on December 13, 2013

Answer:
The bricks on this panel measure approximately 2" x 6" and they are gray in color.

By Sara from Riverside, IA on February 10, 2015
Would this refractory panel work in a Superior fireplace?
By eFireplaceStore on February 10, 2015

Answer:
This panel can indeed be used as a universal replacement for a Superior wood burning fireplace. It would need to be cut to fit with a circular saw equipped with a masonry saw blade.

By Michael from FL on December 23, 2013
I had a home inspection done. The inspector noted that there is a cracked brick liner panel in the back of the firebox that needs to be replaced. What would you suggest to be the most cost-effective repair as I am selling this home?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on December 23, 2013

Answer:
Cracks in refractory panels that are larger than 1/8" necessitate a replacement refractory panel or brick. If you have a small crack, you may use fireplace mortar or the SaverSystems Crack and Joint Filler. If your panels need to be replaced, we do offer some universal refractory panels that will work for your woodburning fireplace. Please see the following links:

One 24"h x 28"w Panel

Two 24" h x 40"w Panels

These panels are about 3/4" thick and can be cut down to the size you need with a masonry blade or tile saw. They are suitable for use as side, rear and floor panels inside any manufactured woodburning fireplace.

By Alan from Cherry Log, GA on December 28, 2014
Can I use one of these panels to replace the bottom panel of my fireplace that is starting to crack and chip apart? i have used one of these to replace the backside panel before but not the bottom one.
By eFireplaceStore on December 29, 2014

Answer:
While it has a brick pattern that is normally not seen on a bottom hearth panel, there is no reason why you cannot use this universal replacement as a bottom panel.
By Tom from Brighton, MI on December 29, 2014

Answer:
All of the panels in my unit are the same thickness, so yes.
By Ian from NY on December 29, 2014

Answer:
I am not sure. I also used this for my back panel. The only problem I could see is the relative thickness and strength when compared to a reinforced panel. My guess is is that it will work but it might not last as long as the original panel did.
By Dean from TX on December 29, 2014

Answer:
I don't know why not. Other than size, the composite material seams to be the same, at least in my fireplace and the bottom panel on mine isn't textured with the brick look.

By Donna from North Conway, NH on November 14, 2014
If my current fireplace wall is 2 inches thick, would a one inch refractory panel suffice or should I put two back to back?

By eFireplaceStore on November 14, 2014

Answer:
In the event of a thicker refractory panel such as this, you can use a single 1 inch panel and then shim behind it with cut scraps. In most installations there will be extra material that can serve as spacers for behind the panel.

By Buddy from Tallahasse, Florida on March 12, 2012
Can these panels be used to replace the bottom panel?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on March 12, 2012

Answer:
Yes. The panels can be used as sides, rear or floor panels.

By wayne hopkins from Georgia on October 12, 2012
Will the above replacement panel fit in my Heatilator EL36 fireplace?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 12, 2012

Answer:
While this panel will not match the other panels in your Heatilator model, it a universal panel, and it can be cut to fit properly. This is accomplished with a masonry or tile saw. Installation involves simply putting this panel into place by utilizing the retaining clips of your current fireplace. Also, please note that this panel is 3/4" thick.

By Tom from Jamestown TN on September 5, 2012
I just bought a house with a fireplace but someone has removed the inside panel. I have looked inside and out for manufacturer information but none can be found. This is a wood burning fireplace. Could you advise which kit could be used for replacement of panels?

By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on September 5, 2012

Answer:
One last place you can look for manufacturer information is the upper right-hand corner of the fireplace opening, behind the screen curtain. This is often the data plate location on pre-fab fireplaces.

However, if make and model cannot be found, I would recommend our 24"x40" panels. These would give you enough material to cut out the sizes you need for your fireplace.

By Steve Samford from Canyon Lake Texaas on January 13, 2012
What color are these panels ?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 13, 2012

Answer:
These panels are light gray in color.

By Darren from Georgia on December 27, 2011
Someone had questioned the use of the replacement panel and the answer remarked about a "Channel" the new one would fit into. Where is this channel located that the panel will fit into?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 27, 2011

Answer:
These are universal panels designed to replace refractory panels in woodburning fireplaces. Most manufactured units will have clips that hold the panels in place. As these panels come either as one 24" H x 28" W panel (like on this page) or as two 24" H x 40" W panels (see this page), you will need to cut them down to the size you need with a tile saw or a masonry blade.


By Lori Ulichney from Barberton, OH on August 2, 2012
We have a Superior KR-38-3 unit with a cracked back panel. Would this panel fit our model? Would we able to install it ourselves? Can we purchase only the back panel or do we need to replace them all?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 2, 2012

Answer:
This panel is intended for applications such as this. It is a universal panel, so it would most likely need to be cut to fit properly. If you have access to a tile or masonry saw, you should be able to cut this panel to size. Installation of the panel is usually very simple and requires that you remove a couple of metal retaining brackets.

It is not necessary to replace all the panels in the fireplace, unless you would prefer to. Before purchasing, please verify that the slot in the bottom of the fireplace is at least 3/4" deep, as this replacement panel is also 3/4" thick and will need to fit into the corresponding slot.

By Christina Whitecotton from Jenks, Oklahoma on March 16, 2012
I need 2 side panels and a back panel for my fireplace. The fireplace no. is AL 86225, model no. GR 41, EL 36 and I am also needing a 8" round T-cap to help stop down draft when the when blows.

Can you assist me?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 16, 2012

Answer:
I will be happy to assist you. In order to verify if we carry the correct panels for your needs, I will need to know the manufacturer of the fireplace. Is this a wood burning or gas burning model.

Lastly, what is the outside diameter of the chimney pipe. This will make a difference on which cap is needed for your application. Please advise when you are able to.

By Mike from NY on January 19, 2015
I'm trying to fit my existing refractory panels into my existing fireplace. Could you tell me what the measurements are for the simulated mortar joints from center to center, top to bottom, and left to right so I know if your panel matches mine?


By eFireplaceStore on January 20, 2015

Answer:
The actual bricks used in the pattern for this panel measure 3 inches high and 8 inches in length. From center to center of each mortar joint is approximately 3 1/2 inches tall and 8 1/2 inches wide.
By Brad from College Station, TX on January 21, 2015

Answer:
My center was 20.5" X 16". Left and right was 15. 1/8 x 16" with a notch cut out of the top. Buy plenty of proper blades to cut them as you will go through them quickly. Maybe wetting the panels would help but I didn't do that. Also, buy a tube of mortar cement. You may not get a tight fitting joint and can use the cement to fill in the joint.

By Steve from Neenach, CA on August 17, 2014
I have a Martin SC36M fireplace and have a rear panel that needs to be replaced. Will this work for that application?

By eFireplaceStore on August 18, 2014

Answer:
This panel can indeed be used as a replacement for most applications. The slight difference in thickness will usually not be an issue, however you should check to see exactly where the bottom of the back panel sits currently. Some panels sit within a groove that is only so wide. If the groove is too narrow, you may have to bevel cut the bottom of the panel to allow it to fit properly. The cut can be made with the same masonry or tile blade that is used to cut the panel to the dimensions needed to replace the original.
By Robert from Holly Springs, NC on August 22, 2014

Answer:
Hi, While I am not familiar with your specific model, I do know that these panels will work for the back, the sides or the bottom and can be cut to fit if needed.

Hope this helps. :)
By Robert from Holly Springs, NC on August 22, 2014

Answer:
Sorry, I forgot to address your concern with thickness. The replacement panles are 1/2" thick.

By Andrew from Jackson, TN on February 13, 2014
I noticed in your description of both 42440 and 42428 panels neither one recommends usage for the bottom panel. What panel would you recommend for a bottom panel?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 13, 2014

Answer:
Unfortunately, we do not have a universal panel that is specifically designed for use as a bottom panel. It is possible to use one of the 24 by 40 panels for this purpose or a custom panel can be cast using castable mortar. The old panel would need to be used as a template. A wooden form can be built, based on those measurements, and a product such as the AW Perkins Castable Refractory Cement - 50 lb. Tub could be used.

By Mike from Atlanta, GA on August 18, 2014
What are the dimensions of each of the imprinted bricks in this pattern?

By eFireplaceStore on August 19, 2014

Answer:
The brick pattern used for this pattern is the fairly common 3 inch by 8 inch size.
By Robert from Holly Springs, NC on August 22, 2014

Answer:
Hi Mike, I am not sure about the dimensions of the bricks themselves, however, I do know that the panel can be cut at top and bottom to ensure that the brick pattern on your panels will line up with the brick patten on the new panel. Any slight variation will certainly go un-noticed.

By Becky from Peterman, AL on January 26, 2015
Are these panels safe for wood-burning fireplaces?
By Tyler M. on January 26, 2015

Answer:
Yes, these replacement panels are suitable for use within any manufactured woodburning fireplace.

By Ronald from Dallas, TX on September 16, 2014
On your Hargrove Replacement Fireplace Refractory Panel, 24 inch by 28 inch, if it is such a way that the pattern looks like the bricks are laying horizontal, which side is 24 inches and which is 28?
By eFireplaceStore on September 16, 2014

Answer:
The 24 inch measurement is the height of the panel, measured perpendicular to the horizontal courses of brick. The 28 inch measurement is the width, measured parallel to the horizontal courses of brick.

By Kamy from Los Angeles, California on December 9, 2013
Does this panel have a mesh wiring inside for reinforcement to protect against breaking? Does this have to be cured?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 10, 2013

Answer:
This product uses a high quality silica casting that negates the need for additional reinforcement. As such, the manufacturer does not add mesh to the panels. Curing instructions can be found in the downloadable link on the item page.

By D.K. from Beaumont, Texas on December 9, 2013
I have a Martin Fireplace that was installed in 1974. I need replacement parts for both sides, the back and bottom. Do you sell anything I can use to repair my fireplace?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on December 10, 2013

Answer:
Unfortunately, we do not have the manufacturer-specific panel that you are looking for, but we do offer some universal refractory panels that will work for your woodburning fireplace. This item is suitable for your needs, but we also have it available in a much more cost-effective set of 2: links:

Two 24" h x 40"w Panels

These panels are about 3/4" thick and can be cut down to the size you need with a masonry blade or tile saw. They are suitable for use as side, rear and floor panels inside any manufactured woodburning fireplace.

By Mark from PA on January 28, 2014
I'm looking to purchase the 24-28 refractory replacement panel but my existing cracked back panel is 1inch thick. Do you offer such a size or can I get away with 3/4 inch?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on January 28, 2014

Answer:
This is our only universal refractory panel option and it is indeed suitable for use inside any manufactured woodburning fireplace.

By Linda from Fayetteville, NC on November 15, 2014
Hello I was interested in a fireplace refractory panel replacement. The one we just took out is 19.5 by 29.5 and one inch thick. Will this Hargove replacement panel work for me?
By Tyler M. on November 17, 2014

Answer:
Unfortunately, no, as this panel is only 28" wide. Our best option for you is the set of two Hargrove panels, although it may be more than you need:

Two 24" h x 40"w Panels
By Jo Ann from FL on November 17, 2014

Answer:
I was worried about that same issue. I measured the panel upon receipt and it was closer to 7/8" and the edges met almost perfectly when installed. I was expecting to have to compensate for 1/4" difference!

Can this product be used to replace the top panel in a gas fireplace?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 15, 2011

Answer:
While it would be OK to use this as a panel in your gas fireplace, it is not recommended. You would be better finding a ceramic fiber panel to use, which would weight significantly less and would be less cumbersome to hold in place. With this panel, you would need to use a high-temperature adhesive for the ceiling of your firebox and clips on each edge of the panel to hold it in place. This panel is 3/4" thick and can be cut with a masonry blade to the size you need.

What exactly is the curing process for a newly installed Hargrove panel?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 8, 2013

Answer:
To keep the unit from cracking, it is best to burn at least 2-3 small fires for 1 hour at a time. The fires should be kept to only kindling and 1-2 small logs that will burn down within the 1 hour time frame. This allows any remaining moisture to slowly evaporate from the panel, without causing it to dry out too quickly, leading to crack formation. After these small initial fires, the unit can once again be used as normal.

I live in a mobile home and I noticed that my fireplace panels are cracked and need to be replaced. I need to replace the side, back, and bottom panels. Would these refractory panels work as a replacement?
By Brennan W. on March 2, 2015

Answer:
They would indeed work for your unit. They will simply need to be cut down to size using a standard circular saw with a masonry blade.

I need new fireplace refractory panels for my fireplace. The fireplace number is G-975124, the brand is Superior, and the model number is B-I038. It looks like I need the back and bottom panels. The sides are covered with a metal plate. Do you carry the type of panel I need?
By Kevin E. on December 3, 2014

Answer:
Thank you for your patience. Unfortunately, there are no model specific replacements still available for your Superior fireplace. As this is the case, your best bet would be to purchase one of our universal panels which are designed to be cut down to size.
