Fireplace coating

Choose the Fireplace coating

The thermocamels are closed, watertight fireplaces, with a cast iron body and ceramic glass door; the result is usually a closed hearth, which in the room shows only a few flames; To make the environment more beautiful and pleasant, you need to choose a thermocamain coating, which is placed on the walls around the fireplace mouth. These covers are made of different material; the most typical and classic are wood and bricks, but they are found in various kinds of stone, steel, cast iron and majolica; There are also old, sculpted materials available on the market that can simply be attached to the wall and fixed with stucco.

The choice depends strongly on the style in which your fire is positioned: if the room is modern, a thin metal edge will be perfect; if instead the room is rustic, then wood or stone will help make it a “country house” style.

How to coat a thermocam

Basically, the fireplace coating is simply fixed on the three sides of the wall in contact with the hearth; can be glued to the wall, leaving it intact, but in some cases this structure is slightly recessed, so as to protect the outer wall from the heat emitted by the fire.

The materials to be glued, with stucco or other material, can be laid even after installing the chimney, while the embedded ones are laid at the same time with the hearth, so that the masonry works are done at the same time. There are also modular elements in steel or other metal that can be attached to the outer edge of the chimney, simply with some work of DIY. More often, coatings require a mason’s work, because it may be necessary to adapt them to hole measurements. Usually fire resistant materials are used, so they can last for many decades

Corner thermocouple coating

Corner fireplaces are used when you want to place a large hearth or when you need to pass the chimney off the wall, crossing any flats placed on the upper floors. These chimneys therefore tend to be larger than those on the wall; and even the outer cover is more demanding than the hearth is placed diagonally or positioned parallel to the wall. For these reasons, the corner thermocouple coating generally tends to be very light, to avoid making the fireplace the most precious item in the room.

For modern-style fireplaces, much steel or cast iron is used, which, thanks to their ductility, can be used in thin strips to be placed around the hearth. Very interesting in this case also stone, granite or marble, which can also be used to create a small bench in front of the corner fireplace.

Costs heat-coat coatings

The cost of the Fireplace coating is commensurate with the size of the fireplace and the type of material used; in fact, you choose a fine material for smaller chimneys, and prefer rustic or cheap materials for very large fireplaces; but clearly everything depends on your needs and your pockets: in fact, it may cost as much as the fireplace, or even much more. The cheapest ones are metal, iron or steel, because the raw material is less expensive at the start, or even modeled with plasterboard; wood is another interesting material, but the price depends largely on the chosen essence, which is then treated and cut to fit the fireplace.

Most expensive shells are those in stone, marble, or granite, which can even reach a few thousand euros for a medium sized fireplace; if you know a good marmist, you can think of contacting him to make you cover up, and make him sit. The most expensive fireplaces are vintage, marble or tiled, and design ones.
