    March 12, 2018
    hi. I have a Trueheat HS 36 wood burning fireplace and I had to remove all of the panels (back, sides and bottom) due to wear. I stumbled across this product after reading your answer to a similar question and thought it might be easier to ship the panels if they were already cut to size. Is it possible for you to do this, and do you have a a manual for this fireplace with the dimensions already listed? I can measure it myself, but I do not known that tolerances I should be working with in order to facilitate installation. Any help and guidance would be more than appreciated. Thank you.
    1 Answer
    While we would not have an installation manual to offer for your fireplace as we are not a dealer of products from this particular manufacturer, I'm fairly certain that the installation manual for this particular model is available online for download. Also, we do not cut these panels to order. Instead, these panels may be cut to fit via a circular saw with a masonry blade. I recommend measuring the existing panels as they have already been removed and then marking these exact measurements on the back side of the Hargrove panels prior to cutting with your saw. The panels are quite easily installed via the existing retainer clips that once held your old panels in place.

    I have a Majestic fireplace - the back panel is cracked and so it the bottom. Can these panels be used for the bottom or do you sell replacement panels for Majestic?
    1 Answer
    We do carry Majestic as one of our brands, please let us know your model and we will see if replacements are available. Hargrove panels are universal and can be used for the bottom panel as long as 1" thickness will suffice.

    My back and Hearth panels are badly damaged, side panels are good, I notice in the damaged panel that metal lath was used in the original manufacturing. Are these new panels as strong as my original panels? I don't know the manufacturer but the house was built in 1996.
    1 Answer
    These are a cast refractory cement in about a 1" thickness. They are what is commonly used today as well as in many of the older units dating back to the 1980's.

    Our home has a traditional brick fireplace. It has a huge firebox opening, around 51" wide and 50" high. We want to make it smaller and raise it off the floor. We are thinking about using cinder blocks to raise the fire box and also on the sides to make it narrower. We also want to bring down the top of the firebox about 12". We have the angel iron and will use fire brick on top. Once we get that done, could we use this product to cover everything? We live in south Florida, and plan never to use the fireplace, just want it to look nice. We may put some kind of artificial candle lighting inside the firebox.

    This should indeed be enough material. The panels can be cut with a circular saw using a masonry blade. Unfortunately, we do not offer custom cutting.

    Can the Hargrove refractory panels be used outdoors, where they'll be exposed to the elements? Decades ago my house (I just got it), was built with a large brick barbecue and chimney. Now, the bottom bricks and especially the mortar are deteriorating. So, the new panel would go over a concrete slab. In my area, it doesn't get too cold in the winter. Thank you and have a good day!

    from Columbia, MD asked:

    I have a Superior Model B938. The side walls are metal and the back and bottom have refractory panels. The fireplace was installed when the house was built in 1979. My chimney contractor says that this model came with side panels that did not have refractory panels. My house is under contract for re-sale. Home inspector states that the side walls require refractory panels. Can the Hargrove Replacement Fireplace Refactory Panels be installed in this unit?
    1 Answer
    Your chimney contractor is correct in this case. Many older models of Superior, Heatilator, and Majestic fireplaces did not use refractory panels on the sides. They used either a cast refractory panel or stacked refractory tiles across the back and then a pair of metal shields along the sides. The shields would usually stand forward from the metal chassis behind them, creating an air space for cooling. By the mid-80's, this design was changed to incorporate refractory panels in place of the shields, as they were nicer looking and gave similar insulating properties. I do not recommend retrofitting the refractory panels to a unit that never had them to begin with. Doing so will void the original listing of the fireplace and should a fire result that is traced back to the fireplace or chimney system, the insurance company will likely dispute that fact that the fireplace was altered against manufacturer specifications.

    from Chattanooga, TN asked:
    January 23, 2016
    I have an old Heatilator Mark 123. Instead of brick refractory panels it has metal ones that are stamped to look like brick. Could I replace these panels with yours? Also how do I attach them? My panels are held in with screws, not clamps. Could I drill your panels and attach them with screws?
    1 Answer
    These would not be able to be installed with screws, as this could cause a crack in the panel. You will want to outfit the inside of the unit with clamps purchased from a local hardware store that would hold the panels in place.

Remove and use the existing panels as templates for the new. Use a good masonry blade on a circular saw and be sure to support each side of the cut to avoid any cracking or breaking near the end of the cut.

    Once I cut these Hargrove replacement fireplace refractory panels and install them, do the seams need to be sealed with anything?

    The edges do not need to be sealed. It is actually best to leave the edges as they are in order to allow for some movement that will occur as the result of expansion and contraction.

    1 Answer
    While this is not their original intended purpose, the panels could indeed be cut to fit for this application. The panels are usually held in place by retaining brackets in a prefabricated fireplace, so you will need to use refractory mortar to secure them for a masonry application.

    We have a Superior fireplace model BRF-3875 in our living room. There is a crack only in the back panel of the fireplace and it definitely needs to be replaced. My husband is good at home repairs, so to save money, he wants to do it himself. I found this particular one but we are not sure if it will work. We use the fireplace a lot in the winter time and want it to heat very well. Would these work for what we need to do?
    1 Answer
    The universal Hargrove panels can indeed work for your application. We also sell a single smaller panel if you do not need a set of two. The smaller panel is the Hargrove Replacement Fireplace Refractory Panel - 24 inch X 28 inch. The panels can be easily cut to fit with a tile saw or masonry saw.

    I'm updating a DF36 Marco Fireplace for a customer. Will these panels work? I noted that the originals are 1' thick and these are 3/4". Would that be an issue?
    1 Answer
    It will not be a problem to substitute these panels in place of the originals. The refractories in this model were for appearance purposes, so the decreased thickness will not cause an issue. You may need to bend the retaining brackets inward slightly, in order to compensate for the thinner panels and to hold them against the wall.

    I have a wood burning fireplace with pre-fab walls. I have an estimate to replace the refractory panels, but the estimate indicates 'fiber walls' as a replacement. Are the Hargrove Refractory Panels 'fiber' and are 'fiber' walls safe to use in a wood burning fireplace?
    1 Answer
    The Hargrove panels are made of refractory cement material, which is required for a wood burning fireplace. The ceramic fiber panels can only be used in a gas burning application and will degrade quickly when used in a wood burning fireplace.

    I a have 20 year old Martin Model SB 5400 fireplace. Some of the fire brick facing has come off of the back wall inside of the fireplace. Do you have any ideas on what my options could be?
    4 Answers
    Aside from the universal panels you are currently viewing, the only other option would be to cast a replacement from refractory cement. If you are able to accurately measure the width, height, and thickness of the current panel, a form can be made and castable cement, such as the Rutland Castable Refractory Fireplace Cement, used to fill the form and make a new panel. It is my recommendation to use reinforcement mesh in the center of the panel if it is to be more than 1 inch thick.
    on August 14, 2014
    These replacement refractory panels will work if you make sure you get them larger than your panels. Get the measurements of your panels and order what you need. You'll need a diamond saw blade to cut them to size and shape to fit your fireplace.

    3 Answers
    The Hargrove refractory panels can indeed be utilized to replace the bottom refractory panels on a prefabricated fireplace. If you could advise the manufacturer and model number of your fireplace, I may be able to provide information on a factory replacement panel, instead of a universal cut to fit panel such as the Hargroves.

    on August 6, 2014
    I used this set to replace the back and bottom of my fireplace. I am overall satisfied with the replacement panels. The side panels were still in good shape, so they were reused. Get a masonry cutting blade for your power saw and dust masks and eye protection as cutting generates a LOT of dust. Set up outside well away from your house and use the old panels as templates to mark the panels. Find a cheap but adequate masonry blade as I considered this to be a one-shot job not to be repeated. Just be careful tossing a log on there, as the panels are a bit fragile. There is no reinforcement in the panels, so they will crack if some moderate care is not used. Also the metal liner of the fireplace can pop like the old oil-can bottoms and cause the panels to crack. As long as the gap isn't more than 1/4" (6mm) the heat cannot transfer to the steel liner.

    In my fireplace my panels seem to be metal and your panels are brick, correct? I have three panels: the sides are 15x18 and the middle is 20x18. Only the middle is cracked; they have the screw clamps at the top of each panel. Do I need to replace all of the panels? What panel or panels would you suggest I buy to replace these?
    7 Answers
    The universal panels we offer are manufactured from refractory concrete. This material is poured into a mold, then stamped with a brick pattern. It is often unnecessary to replace all panels if only a single piece is damaged. However, it varies from unit to unit. The original style of panels may also be available for your fireplace. If you are able to find the manufacturer name and model number of the unit, we can check into this further.
    on May 27, 2014
    There's actually 4 - the bottom too. I had same rear crack; I was only able to make 3 of the 4 panels. I re-used one of the old side pieces. I used a table saw with a masonry wheel to cut it.

    I have an all sheet metal contractor grade bi-fuel fireplace. I technically didn't have to use panels but wanted the brick look and some heat retention. I cut these panels to fit sides and back and made brackets to hold in place. Looks great! If you want the panels to match, then replace all.
    on July 10, 2014
    from Marietta, GA
    Yes, i have fire brick in front of my metal panels. If, at any time, one of the panels is cracked, it would be cost effective to replace all the panels. If not, you would be going back in to it to replace them due to breakdown of metal.
    on July 10, 2014
    from New Orleans, LA
    Are you sure your panels are metal, not just the brackets? These are a composite board similar to cement/concrete that are suitable for a wood burning fireplace. I would think if you replaced the rear panel with composite, then I would also replace the sides to avoid heat refraction. I found them extremely easy to replace, although cutting them was an exercise in patience and determination. You may want to actually remove your existing panel to see if there is any information on the back as to specs needed to replace. This was the easiest part of my fireplace project.
    on July 10, 2014
    from Richmond, TX
    The panels are of a concrete and/or ceramic composition and can replace metal panels. You do not have to replace undamaged panels but given the look of different materials and age of the existing panels, I would recommend that you consider going ahead and replacing all panels.

    from Sevierville, TN
    The panels I have in my fireplace are formed concrete- as sold by this vendor. We ended up returning the ones I ordered from eFireplace Store (at great shipping expense - freight by weight) because my local guy wouldn't cut them down to size. He preferred pre-sized and pre-formed panels. With the new panels, it took him 20 minutes tops to install. To order the exact replacement panels, I contacted the maker of the fireplace- found it on the side of the metal box. There was some wrangling there, as well, because that vendor had sold to another vendor… so the part numbers were different- In the end, buying from eFireplace store was easy and customer service was very helpful, even though I ended up returning their product. I would make sure to differentiate whether you have a wood burning or gas burning fireplace as well- there is a difference in panel thickness and definitely in price- Good luck-

    March 22, 2014
    I live in a house that is about 50 years old. When we bought it we were told the firebox was cracked and it could therefore not be used. When I look at the fireplace it is large 31.5 wide and 20.5 deep. There are no refractory panels- I assume the previous owners removed them but I see no clips, make and model number or anything else. The back has a hole in it the size of a 10 cent piece, and it appears from the coloring that it was this that they made fire in. The back and sides are metal. The fireplace then bends slightly and goes upwards. There is also a grate or vent in the center of the chimney breast. I have a couple of questions- should those fireplace have refractory panels? If so given there are no clips how do I attach it to the existing structure. Could I cement with refractory cement the above product to the back and sides? The fireplace is huge and the focus of the room so I would really like to use it for both aesthetic reasons and reduction of heating costs. Thanks Enid

    Typically, prefabricated fireplaces due require the use of refractory panels to insulate the firebox from the surrounding combustible framing. Due to the age of the home, I would suggest having a professional inspect both the fireplace and the chimney system to ensure that there are no hidden concerns. Additionally, the refractory panels would need to be held in place by clips as the panels will expand and contract under normal heating and cooling of the fireplace. If the panels are joined together, or to the firebox body, they could crack as they expand and contract. Sometimes these clips need to simply be made and riveted into place if they have since been removed or burned away over time.

    Do you have exact size replacement fierplace panels? I need a 24 inch wide by 20 inch height. My fireplace model has been discontinued.
    1 Answer
    We're sorry, but our universal panel options are made large so the owner can cut to any size needed. If you do not have the manufacturer or model information of your fireplace, then we can offer universal replacement panels. We carry options for both woodburning fireplaces and gas fireplaces. If you have a woodburning fireplace (or a fireplace that originally burned wood but now burns gas), 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. If you have a fireplace that is only listed to burn gas (vent-free, direct vent or B-vent), please see these universal panel options: El Dorado Decorative Brick Firebox Panel Seville Decorative Brick Firebox Panel Florence Decorative Brick Firebox Panel Each of these panels measure 22.5" wide by 19.5" high and they are 1/2" thick. They can be cut to the size(s) you need.

    January 18, 2014
    I have an old Trueheat TBU36. We installed this new when we built our home in 1990. The Refractory Panels on the left & right are still in good shape, but the back and bottom have bad cracks. Since the fireplace originally carried a 25 year warranty and it has been 24 years already, does it make sense to replace only the cracked panels or should I replace them all? I'm afraid the others will crack before long. Although almost all the comments I have read say they need to replace only back & bottom. My second question is by the time I purchase this set and add the additional 24 x 28 panel to cover the fourth panel wouldn't it make more sense to just purchase a complete new unit? I can see how replacing the refractory panels is fairly simple, but would it be a major undertaking to take out the old unit, replace with a new one and install new vent pipe?
    1 Answer
    As long as the side panels are intact and do not have any signs of severe cracking, it may indeed be possible to replace the back and bottom panels only. Typically, a full panel replacement is only done on an older unit if you are looking for a fresh, uniform look. You are correct that replacing the entire unit may be a better option, given the age of the unit and cost of replacements. The unit uses the same SK8 chimney system that many new Majestic and Monessen units use now. If the chimney system is in good shape, you could replace the unit only and use the same chimney. After checking with the manufacturer, the back and bottom panels are still available for this model of fireplace. The parts would have to be cast and shipped out to you. If you would like to place an order, I can contact you via phone to do so.

    I have received my order from you and I am wondering if someone could explain to me how to remove the old bottom refractory panel on my Superior fireplace model SGR384. Do I have to remove the glass doors? How would I do that? Can you assist me with this?
    1 Answer
    While we are not a dealer of the Superior brand of fireplaces, I can say that similar brands that we carry do indeed require the removal of the glass doors to replace the bottom refractory panels. The upper door pins are usually spring loaded, allowing you to pull the pins downward and tilt the doors out of the way. You can then remove the front refractory rail at the bottom of the fireplace. Removing the rail should allow you to pull the bottom refractory out of position.

    My fireplace has fire brick. It was a gas fireplace and now it is woodburning. The sides (back and bottom) do not come out. Can I put the panels over the old fire brick?
    1 Answer
    It is possible to place the universal brick panels over the existing panels, however there should be a way to remove the old panels. There are usually retaining brackets that are located at the top of each side panel that holds them in place. Removing those brackets will allow the side panels to lean over and be removed. This will then allow the rear panel to be pulled forward.

    Solved My Problem!
    Our chimneysweep said our fireplace wasn't safe to use, as the back and bottom panels were cracked beyond repair. He quoted me $700 for the repair and told me he couldn't actually do the repair for TWO months.... so after searching online I found these replacement panels. They arrived in just over a week, delivery was perfect! No damage what so ever. I spent $15 on a diamond blade for my circular saw and I was in business. The blade made clean cuts. It was loud & dusty & sparks flew, but installation went without a hitch and the fireplace looks brand new. I highly recommend these panels.

    First Timer Install
    I researched, I asked questions here on the web site, got the answers I needed, so I ordered this 2 pack of Refractory Panels. The order was filled within a day and on my way. efireplacestore sent various emails keeping me informed of the delivery process. FedEx called for the delivery appointment, driver was great, backed his tractor right in my driveway ( which they do NOT have to do, since this is a curbside delivery), we unloaded the very well packaged skid right into the bed of my pick-up! ( The weight on the shipping ticket was right at 200 lbs. ) Our fireplace insert was very simple to disassemble, laid out the old Hearth onto one panel and traced it, same with the 2nd panel to do the back. I used a circular saw, with a carbon blade ( available at any home improvement store ), It WILL get dusty when you cut the panel, so wear some type of mask/bandana when cutting. Reassemble in reverse (Hearth/Back Panel/Side Panels ).
    Pros1. efireplacestore was quick to answer any emailed questions 2. delivery process was smooth and simple 3. product is heavy/durable 4. with a little research, YOU CAN DO THIS!
    ConsWhen cutting, makes alot of dust, please use a mask or bandana......that's it!

    hargrove universal replacement panels
    The Hargrove Universal Replacement Panels are the ultimate choice for replacing your damaged panels. These panels are great for those, including myself, who do not have the make and model of their fire place. They are fitted by cutting with a masonry blade on a circular saw. There is a lot of dust, so I recommend safety glasses and a dust mask. The panels cut easily. The shipping packaging is good. BE SURE TO INSPECT THEM PRIOR TO ACCEPTANCE.

    Quality Refractory Panels, fast ship
    These panels were ordered to replace old cracked panels in a Majestic fireplace unit. They were shipped very quickly and came well packaged; wrapped in plastic and thick cardboard sheets between each one, strapped upright on a very sturdy pallet. Delivery personnel were very gracious to unload them from the tractor trailer (no loading deck). The panels are exactly as described and were expertly cut by my son using the old panels as a template and utilizing a grinder with a diamond disk. They fit perfectly into the fireplace and the entire thing looks like a new unit. No fire has been set in the fireplace as of yet but there are instructions for curing the panels and that needs to be done to insure good service from the panels.
    ProsExactly as described. Shipped quickly and securely. Cut to size easily using proper tools. Looks great in the fireplace.

    Fireplace refractory panels
    Everything worked out great! Got the panels within one week from ordering, measured, cut and replaced with a help from a friend, and got brand new looking fireplace. Hargrow pannels seem much more durable and substantial then the original pannels I had in the fireplace. All in all, by going the self installing route I have saved 1K, and as a bonus, I had enough of the pannel material to refurbish the base.
    ConsThe panels are hard to cut and definitely require use of a protective glasses and a breathing mask. There is a tones of a fine cement dust, so cut away from the house.

    Our order arrived very quickly and the way they packaged the 2 panels there was little risk of shipping damage. The manufacturer of our fireplace insert went out of business years ago so after a few hours of research this product was the best/cheapest choice. Glad we went with this product and company, would highly recommend buying if you are in the market. Install is quite simple with even rudimentary skills. Be sure to follow the break in advice they have listed here for these panels.

    Looks Great
    I needed to replace the bottom and rear firebrick liner or refractory on my old Temco Woodburning Fireplace.Temco no longer exists so I found this on line and ordered it. It arrived no problem and I hired a chimney cleaning company for $350 to install it as they had to cut the panels to fit my fireplace and its a messy job that I didn't want to deal with. I was a little worried that the panel would look different than the existing refractory but the approx. 2"x8" size of brick matched great and the cement grey color also worked well. I also was concerned about that the new panels may be too thick to fit in place of the old but the 3/4" fit perfectly. In fact these panels seem much stronger than the old. I am very happy with the outcome.

    Just What We Needed!
    We have a Marco fireplace, which is no longer in business, so finding firebrick panels we thought would be impossible. These worked perfectly! You get two panels, which we needed two, so one we used on the back (and have enough left to do a side if ever needed) and it pretty much took a full panel to do the bottom. They are fragile but we bought a blade for our SKIL saw to cut them. Had no problem or breakage. May seem a little $$$ but worth it. We use our fireplace daily during the Winter months. The panels aren't as thick as the Marco panels and they don't have the wire mesh embedded. We'll see how they hold up.
    ProsPrompt delivery. Packaging prevented any breakage. Easy to cut (with the right blade). Did the complete removal and install in 2 hours max. This store is very good with sending emails regarding information to let you know everything about their shipping, being prepared for delivery and how the panels are to be treated. That info is valuable.

    DIY refractory panels
    Panels were exactly as described. Shipping and delivery was quick. The freight company arrived when they said they would and the panels were very securely attached to a pallet. No damage at all during shipment. The panels were very easy to install...Just lay the old panel on top, trace the shape and cut with a circular saw with a masonry blade. I removed the old panels and had the new ones installed within about an hour. Just be sure to do your cutting outside away from the house. Like all masonry projects, there is a good deal of dust when you cut. I recommend the panels and this store to anyone looking to save some money and get a quality product.

    Hargrove Replacement Fireplace Refractory Panels
    The rear refractory panel in my zero-clearance fireplace sustained normal wear and tear damage due to years of fireplace use. After scouring the internet for a replacement panel for this particular fireplace, I discovered that the fireplace manufacturer of my fireplace had gone out a business. This is not uncommon for older fireplaces. I checked around in my town and couldn't find any fireplace store who had replacement panels. I asked the chimney sweep who cleans my chimney and he told me that needed to get replacement panels and that he would cut and install them for me. My fireplace has a back, two side, and a floor panel. Four total panels. I only had damage to the back panel. After surfing the internet I stumbled across what I thought was the best deal for these replacement panels at e-Fireplace I sent them a few emails and made a call or two and decided that the best deal for me was to order their 24X40 set of 2 panels. I planned to have my chimney sweep guy cut what I needed for this job and save the leftovers for any future replacement. There's free shipping on the set of 2 panels, which is a "significant" savings on the cost. I ordered the panels and it took about 2-3 weeks to receive them. That seemed a bit long, but I suppose they make the panels once they're ordered. The panels arrived in an 18 wheeler truck, so plan to have an 18 wheeler in your driveway, or if that won't work as it didn't for me (I live very rural and up a long narrow driveway), be prepared to have the driver meet you somewhere, and bring your pickup truck. The panels were expertly packed on a pallet. As packed, they're pretty heavy. Be careful once they arrive because these panels are fragile. They will break. Take the damaged panels out of your fireplace and use them as your cutting template. The old panels are probably held in with clips. Mine were. It took my fireplace guy about 15 minutes to do the entire operation. He used a "diamond blade" on his saw to cut the panels. It worked good. Do NOT use a standard saw blade. Once installed, don't light a full fire to your fireplace. New panels must first cure and expand to the heat gently before they're completely ready for a fire. This takes about three hours. I used one of those match-lit logs you can buy at any Walmart. They don't produce extensive heat, they burn for about three hours, and they're easy to monitor. Once that part's complete, fire away. I'd also be careful not to over burn the first time. In other words, keep your wood OFF the panels and don't light a bonfire to your fireplace. All in all I'm very happy about these panels. The folks will replace them if they arrive damaged, and mine refract the heat as designed and has been durable up to now. We've been using the fireplace daily for about a month since we had the back panel installed, with no deficiencies noted. I suppose the only downside to buying refractory replacements is the cost. They're not inexpensive, but they're worth the expense if you rely on your fireplace to provide heat during the winter months. I rate and these panels with an "A" and would not hesitate to recommend this product to a friend. Good luck!
    ProsEase of cutting, the customer service I received from, free shipping
    ConsCost. Seems high when you compare it to buying a $250 TV. Go figure, but they're expensive everywhere.

    Great value, great service
    I had 2 bad panels so I opted for the set of 2 24 x 40 panels. To my surprise they were shipped by truck and not FedEx or UPS. The way they were wrapped and palleted made it so that nothing could be stacked on top of them so damage is almost impossible. The trucking service called my cell phone to let me know they were coming. "A WEEK EARLIER THAN ESTIMATED" which was fantastic. And to top it all off. I got 3 panels cut out of the 2 pieces,both sides and a back . And still have enough left over to make 1 more if anything happens.I priced in stores and they are really expensive so if you don't mind cutting them you save a lot.
    ProsEasy to cut "if you don't mind spending $24.00 on a diamond blade. $300.00 cheaper than buying precut. Trucked instead of using OOPS or FEDERAL DISTRESS. Plenty of product to do the job right.
