At Cumbrian Stone we can produce a wide range of fire surrounds to suit your requirements. Because each stone we make is cut to order, we are able to dress and carve each fire surround we produce to our customers’ exact sizes and requirements.
Each surround is cut to size before being hand dressed by our masons. Unlike imported surrounds, this gives us full control over the finished product we produce ensuring that our customers are satisfied with the end result every time.
In order to begin designing your ideal fireplace Cumbrian Stone needs the following information:
A – Overall Surround Height
B – Overall Surround Length
C – Overall Surround Depth
D – Maximum Hearth Length
E – Maximum Hearth Depth
F – Maximum Opening Height
G – Maximum Opening Width
Along with details of the style of surround you are looking for, these sizes will allow us to put together proposals for your fire surround that you can then double check with your builder prior to ordering.
A sandstone hearth is a popular choice for a fire surround. At Cumbrian Stone we manufacture our hearth stones at 50mm thick as standard, however this can be increased if necessary to suit your surround. The measurements Cumbrian Stone normally require to manufacture your sandstone hearth are as follows:
A standard hearth can be cut in either one or two sections depending on your requirements, and usually includes a small pencil chamfer to the front three edges of the front hearth. A more detailed profile can be added to the front edges at an additional cost.
