    Does this item sit in the fireplace on its own? Also, what needs to be done to properly install this fireback?
    1 Answer
    This fireback can be used in the fireplace on its own by carefully leaning it against the back wall. If your fireplace grate does not have rear tines that prevent logs from rolling off or your back fireplace wall slopes forward significantly, you may consider using the Pennsylvania Firebacks Small Pair of Fireback Saf-T Boots. These will stabilize the fireback and prevent it from falling over in the event of a log impact. They will also allow the fireback to stand upright, as opposed to tilting against the back wall.

    from Trenton, NJ asked:
    July 5, 2014
    What is the best way to clean cast iron such as this piece? Is it ok to highlight aspects of the design, and what coating should be used? Polyurethane? It is not going in a fireplace, I want it for decorative use.
    1 Answer
    If you are using this fireback for decorative purposes only, you can indeed seal the detail of the casting with high quality polyurethane. The fireback can be cleaned with a cast iron restoration product that does not have any added pigmentation. We offer stove polishes of various sorts, but they are made to apply a grey or black pigment to the cast iron that they are applied to. You would likely benefit from using a cleaner that is intended for cast iron cookware, as it would not apply any pigmentation.

    Alice
    from Plainfield, MA asked:
    January 29, 2014
    How much height will the support boots add to the fireback? Also, how far from the back wall will the boots bring the bottom of the fireback?
    1 Answer
    While it depends on the exact model purchases, as thicknesses of the firebacks vary slightly, the boots generally raise the fireback by 1 to 1 1/2 inches. The Boots will hold the fireback approximately 2 inches forward from the back wall.

    A beautiful piece!
    It's a beautiful piece and perfect for the armchair astronomer, like me. It does boost heat output from my old, inefficient fireplace but the rest of the time it's just plain nice to look at.

    Long Lasting
    This product not only fits my theme, but also adds a home-like atmosphere to my living room. The sturdiness of this product causes me to think that it will last a while.

    Not Naked Any More
    I'm so used to seeing my fireback now that I've had it inserted into my fireplace for a while and am so happy with it that when I see fireplaces without firebacks, I think they look naked. Where we live we burn a fire at least half the year, and this fireback has held up well. I really like the look of it when the flames reflect off of it. But most importantly it keeps the back wall cool while putting more heat into the room where we need it. It continues to put out the heat even after the fire burns down because it's a very substantial piece of cast iron. I showed it to my neighbor and now he's ordering one too!
