What is the purpose of a Refractory panel?

Refractory panels reflect heat, generated from the fire, back into the room. Most factory built and 0 clearance fireplace manufacturers require replacement of refractory panels when a dime can be inserted into the crack or when the surface of the refractory panel has deteriorated more than ¼” from the original surface. Fireside Chimney Supply offers diamond cutting blades for DIY cut to fit refractory panels in 5 different sizes and brick patterns.

Refractory Panel Curing Process

Important:
This process must be followed or you risk the chance of cracking your new refractory panels.

1) Once your refractory panel is received, store for 24 hours at room temperature.

2) Refractory panel can be cut to fit with concrete saw blades and installed at this point.  Allow an additional 24 hours with no fires

3) Light six small curing fires allowing the refractory panel to cool after each fire.  A curing fire consists of lighting a small bundle of kindling or cutting a Dura-Flame log into six pieces for the six fires. Burn each fire for 1/2 an hour.

The small curing fires are required in order to dry the moisture in the refractory panels. You do not want to heat the moisture. Once this is accomplished you can have normal fires.

NOTE:
Due to the nature and fragility of freshly made refractory panels a representative must be present to accept delivery and inspect for damage. A signature will be required. Any additional freight charges due to missed appointments will be at the expense of the homeowner. If damage occurs in shipment the package must be refused and returned to Fireside Chimney Supply before the driver leaves. Fireside Chimney Supply will not be responsible for damage to the product once shipment has been delivered.
