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).

The Ecosmart VB2 Bio Ethanol burner has been designed to to be easily integrated into an existing fireplace, the minimalist design allows you to convert a traditional styled fireplace into a clean burning bio-ethanol suite. As ethanol produces no smoke the VB2 burner doesn’t require a chimney or flue making it the perfect alternative for homes that require the look and feel of a real flame.

The VB2 has a 2 litre capacity and will provide 2.5kW of heat, a little more than an electric heater, for approximately 6 hours. Finished in a stylish black the VB2 has been designed to blend in with any existing fireplace. The dual purpose lid provided with the Vb2 enables you to safely extinguish the fire by simply placing the lid on top of the flame and also provides a cover for when the burner is not in use, preventing any dust or muck falling into the tank leaving the Vb2 clean and safe to use all year round.

The adjustable feet of the Ecosmart VB2 allows the burner to be lifted or lowered to the correct height to suit any fireplace grill. The VB2 comes with a fire lighter, 5L jerry can and lighting rod included and optional black charcoal fuel can be purchased to use around the bio ethanol burner to provide a more realistic look.
