You’ve chosen the perfect mantel & surround – why not design your fireplace using the dove gray beauty of Soapstone bricks instead of fire clay bricks?

Soapstone bricks’ special mineral properties make it ideal for lining fireplaces. Soapstone is a refractory material: it can withstand high temperatures without cracking.

It is also extremely dense and has a high thermal capacity, so it holds heat and radiates it slowly for hours, improving fireplace efficiency.

But perhaps the best thing is the look: a soft gray firebrick with natural veining & texture. It is a real upgrade to ordinary fire clay brick.  And after all, what part of a fireplace do you look at most: the firebox! Soapstone bricks will make a beautiful back drop to your next fire.
