Fires of Tradition Perth Cast Iron Mantels

Cast Iron has a distinctive quality and strength of character all on its own. Iron mantels were fairly common in the late 1800’s. We have faithfully reproduced one of these, which allows its unique beauty and craftsmanship of the past to live again.
Many of the mantel designs incorporate authentic details and elements that were found in original antiques. We came across our Perth mantel in a salvage yard south of London England. Cast mantels were quite common at the turn of the century, and the material itself has a quality and strength of character all its own. This mantel is the perfect accompaniment to the Windsor front.

All our mantels are designed with some depth to them, which gives any mantel more pleasing lines. However, this requires that the firebox be installed ahead of the drywall, whether they are used with a rebate or a cabinet mantel.

Similar with the hearth- the firebox must be installed at a certain height off the finished floor, in order to allow the hearth to be properly located. Please consult the installation manual for these specifics.

Rebate mantels require that a ‘chase’ be constructed of 2×4’s and drywall to accommodate the depth of the firebox. A cabinet mantel is deep enough to accommodate the firebox, eliminating the need of a chase.

We had a great experience with the technicians at Cosy Comfort Plus - we had some Red Tags that needed sorting and they were able to deal with the issue promptly and professionally. Would certainly recommend.

I had a great experience with Brian from Cozy Comfort from initial phone consultation, followed by in home visit on the same night to ensure right furnace was selected as my old one had quit. Great price was competitive and install performed 1 day later and everything works mint! Will definitely use these guys again.
