Here at Suffolk Stoves, we have partnered with Capital Fireplaces and Farmington Fireplaces to bring you some wonderful fireplace designs. In the showroom we have seven designs (five from Capital, and two from Farmington) to look at, as well as a traditional inglenook style fireplace. We can also provide many different types of hearth material, as well as chambers to fill out the inside of the fireplace. These fireplaces are perfect for woodburning or gas stoves because they are made of a non-combustible material. If you were to go for something simpler, we can also supply Capital Fireplaces’ own Geocast Beams. They come in sizes of 48″ or 54″, and two colours; Dark Oak & Light Oak. These beams look very authentic and can give you the impression of wood without the restrictions.

Please see below for some images, and also for some frequently asked questions.

What is a Mantel?

A mantel comprises the legs, ‘header or frieze’ and shelf. Mantels are compatible with a range of interiors (referred to as inserts, back panels or chambers). The Capital collection of cast iron, steel, brick and ceramic inserts have been designed to compliment all the Capital Fireplace mantels.

What is a Fireplace Suite?

A Fireplace Suite is a complete package made up of a Fireplace, Hearth and a back panel. There are a range of complimentary Gas & Electric fires to choose from including a range of convector fires that are the most efficient gas fires available to buy. Fireplace Suites are generally smaller in size than Fireplace Mantels.

Does the type of chimney I have determine the fireplace I can buy?

Yes. Older houses (pre 1960) generally have “Class 1” chimney’s which are larger and can accommodate most types of Fireplaces. However, their internal condition must be checked as they can sometimes deteriorate and may have to be lined. Newer houses can contain a variety of chimney systems, or possibly none at all. In these circumstances you will need to check with us to see which types of Fireplaces and fuel can be used.

Will my chosen fireplace fit into my home?

This process can be complex. Firstly you must see if you have a working chimney. Secondly you will need to measure the width of the chimney breast to ensure your chosen product is not too wide. Thirdly, you need to establish the size of your “fire chamber” to determine if the product you have selected will fit into the space available. Some products in the brochures require different site conditions, especially where gas is to be used as the fuel source. We recommend you have one of our expert fitters pay you a site visit, that way they will be able to establish what options are open to you.

Can I select different combinations of components from those pictured?

Yes. There are many more possibilities available. To get a good idea of what is possible in your situation, we would suggest having one of our expert fitters carry out a survey on your home (free of charge).

Can I install the fireplace myself?

Fireplace installation is both complex and potentially dangerous. We strongly advise that you only use accredited installers who possess the necessary qualifications. We are able to advise you on all aspects of safe installation, and have all the necessary qualifications to install any fireplaces for you.
