The distinctive Herringbone pattern fireboxes that adorn palaces and castles throughout Europe are available pre-panelized for Superior Clay Rumford Fireplaces. Real firebricks available in a variety of colors, are laid in the Herringbone pattern and bonded to reinforced concrete forming a 5-inch thick panel. The Herringbone panels are installed by the mason during construction of the fireplace to create a beautiful focal point for any room.
Superior Clay Herringbone pattern fireboxes can be customized by choosing the size of exposed firebrick face by selecting the color or blending of colors or by creating your own variation of patterns. The exposed firebrick face most commonly used is 1.25” x 9”, which creates a thin, elegant coursing with lots of joints.
The 2.5” x 9” or 4.5” x 9” faces offers a bold and less busy appearance. The firebox floor, or hearth, can either be installed by the mason prior to the installation of the Superior Clay pre-panelized Herringbone walls or ordered separately from Superior Clay in the Herringbone pattern.
