Fireplace Surround Rebate

Understanding the fireplace rebate you require is essential in ensuring your fireplace/fire will fit your required application. The dimension you need to work out is the depth needed to fully recess you fire against your flat wall or in your chimney recess. If the fireplace is being fitted against a flat wall then the full depth of the fire needs to be recessed within the fire surround. However, if the fire surround is being fitted against a chimney then the depth of the fire can be recessed within the cavity of the chimney.

Diagram of fireplace rebate

The rebate is the distance from the back of the wall to the front of the back panel. Deeper rebates allow the back panel to be brought forward, creating a void between the panel and the wall. Deep rebates are popular where inset electric fires, or flueless gas fires are to be installed onto flat walls.

To work out the fire recess, you subtract the rebate by 20mm to accommodate the thickness of the panel. Therefore 100mm rebate gives you 80mm fire recess depth (100mm - 20mm for the back panel).

Hearth Material

  • Granite Hearth

    Granite for Gas & Electric use:

    Made from a single slab of highly polished granite approximately 20mm think which is sat on 30mm risers. As standard they are 15” in depth.
  • Slabbed Hearth

    Granite for Solid Fuel (real fire) use:

    Usually referred to as split and slabbed or cut and slabbed. These hearths are made from highly polished granite sections to allow for expansion and contraction from the heat. They are filled underneath with a lightweight cement mix which helps dissipate the heat throughout the hearth. Without this heat dissipation the hearth would be put under a great amount of pressure which ultimately causes the hearth to crack. As standard they are 15” in depth.
  • Tiled Hearth

    Tiled Hearth

    Tiled hearths are a very traditional form of hearth. They are made from 6” x 6” tiles. As with the granite hearths for solid fuel these hearths are filled underneath with a lightweight cement mix. As standard they are 15” in depth.
  • Slate Hearth


    These hearths are the same as the “Granite for Gas & Electric” use hearths with the standard 15” depth and only suitable for gas or electric.
  • Limestone Hearth


    These hearths are the same as the “Granite for Gas & Electric” use hearths with the standard 15” depth and only suitable for gas or electric.
