Our fireplace hearths can be made to any size or shape from tiles or stone
We have the most varied range of hearths that you can find anywhere.
We can offer fireplace hearths made in a large range of natural and man-made marbles.
The large sheets of marble that the hearths are made from are usually only 20mm thick.
A standard hearth is usually 50mm high (2 inches).
The hearths are made up from a large slab on top with 'up-stands' bonded to the edges either flush with the edges or set back slightly (called boxed and lipped).
The most frequently used marble is Carrara sourced from the Alpi Apuane in Italy. It is a white background with varying degrees of grey veining that goes well with Victorian style fireplaces. For Art Deco fireplaces a much wider range of marbles were used.
Normally the top slab of marble will have a simple chamfer on its top edge but we can machine various finishes such as a full 'bullnose' (ie fully radiused) or an ogee curved edge.
The front edge corners of the hearth can also be machined to various shapes from radiused corners to a full curved front. Shaping a hearth like this, even simply chamfering the corners, can save a surprising amount of floor space in smaller rooms.
Hearths are also available in mixed materials such as the Salome marble and Italian black slate border shown in the picture.
boxed & lipped
Hollow hearths like this are fine for gas or electric fires. If the hearth is for use with solid fuels which burn hotter we would cut and slab them. This will allow for the expansion to the central areas of the hearth that a solid fuel fire will create. We split the hearth in a neat line before it splits itself!
The hearth is split into three or more sections and then stuck back together and the hollow space on the underside of the hearth is filled with a lightweight and insulating concrete mix.

Natural marbles with a grain or striation will usually be rejoined so that the strata are continuous.
