Soapstone Masonry Heaters
Soapstone masonry heaters provide comfortable and efficient radiant heating that lasts for hours even after the fire has died. Soapstone’s thermal qualities, allow it to act as a battery, absorbing, retaining, and radiating heat.
Please contact us for more information on this very unique product—we can recommend the right masonry heater based on your home size and heating needs.
Special mineral properties make soapstone firebricks ideal for lining fireplaces. Soapstone can withstand temperature extremes without cracking, and firebricks are so dense that they absorb heat—then radiate slowly for hours, providing warmth and improving your fireplace’s efficiency.
We offer soapstone firebricks in three sizes:
- 9″ x 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
- 9″ x 4 1/2″ x 1 1/4″
- 9″ x 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″
Benefits of Masonry Heaters
Soapstone masonry heaters are beautiful, but also provide efficient heating technology not found in standard woodstoves. Unlike traditional fireplaces, which emit blistering, short-lived convection heat in close proximity, soapstone stores and releases heat slowly. The heat released feels like the warmth of afternoon light in a sunroom.
