Our firebrick sets are special refractory firebricks, they are resistant to heat and will only ever break from impact.
The firebricks in our Alpine wood heaters are important:
- They protect the steel from oxidation and rusting, ensuring your Alpine wood heater will last for many years.
- They radiate heat throughout the firebox once the fire has begun to die out.
- They reflect and focus heat inwards, increasing the heat.
These bricks are a consumable component to your heater, we recommend replacing your firebrick set once the bricks are completely crumbling apart. However, if you do accidently crack a brick, you can use the ash with a bit of water or cement to put into the crack. This should set and help keep the brick together.
We offer 2 different sets of Firebricks – one for our Kosciusko Heater and Stirling Heater.
