What are Fireplace Brick Panels?

Fireplace brick panels are a great way to add aesthetic value and functionality to your fireplace. They are made from our brick slips, in our UK factory and sent directly to you. The benefits of using fireplace brick panels include:

  • They provide an attractive design element that will enhance the look of any fireplace chamber in your home.
  • They help protect the hearth from damage caused by heat or wear and tear over time.
  • They offer additional insulation for better energy efficiency when compared with other types of fireplace panels that don’t have these protective barriers installed around them (like those made out of wood).

How to Install Fireplace Brick Panels

  • Tools and Materials
  • Fireplace brick panels (obviously)
  • Our SlipFix Adhesive either Cartridges or using our bagged adhesive.
  • Level
  • Tape measure or ruler

Once you have your panels, it is important to make sure the fireplace chamber is clean, free from dust and that there is no loose debris which can effect the bond of the adhesive.

Once it is clean we recommend using our Brick Slip primer, to create a seal and perfect surface for the brick slips to adhere too.

Once this is all clean, the next step is to measure again to ensure your panels fit, if they do not and need adjustments cut them down to size using an angle grinder with a stone blade. Always cut the edge that is going to be at the back of the fireplace chamber as you do not want the cut on display.

Now that you have these cut in place, your fireplace chamber is all clean and sealed its time to get fixing. We recommend applying the adhesive using a tiling trowel to both the wall and the back of the panel. Once this is done you can then simply place it against the wall ensuring the bond is strong.

Now you have done this for all 3 sides of your fireplace chamber, allow it to dry fully for 24 hours. Give them a clean using just water and a hardwire brush. We then recommend sealing your Fireplace Brick Panels using our sealer to protect against staining.
