The fireplace below has a Starfire Base Glass with Copper Ruby Red Topper on top and 2 lbs of Ice Ice Ice Topper on top. Here is a glimpse of what it used to look like, yuck! You have to try to understand, we see this transformation everyday and we still don't understand the lure to fake logs, do you? Take a closer look at your fireplace, is there anything nice about it in the daylight?
The Fireplace below belongs to Candice, Jonathan and Rocky (a cute little Yorkie). We converted a plain fireplace to a much more usable and modern fireplace TV entertainment area. Watch the transformation from beginning to end. We topped it with Starfire Base Glass to finish it off. Below is Rocky, just supervising.
We started the metal framing in 16 Gauge steel studs. No wood was used and you should never use wood near a fire.
Below we wrapped the opening with durock, concrete board.
Add a bit of drywall. This was wired for a surround sound and electrical in the left cabinets.
The TV that was used was a DLP (16" deep) and this is how you install a TV that is not a flat screen above your fireplace. In the left cabinets the components were installed and concealed by black glass doors. On the top we installed a set of 6" lights on dimmers to give additional room/ mood lighting.
The two fire tubs below were for the Anaheim Marriott in California. The two stainless steel surrounds were installed into the rock fire pit to conceal the electronic ignitions. They had placed logs on top.
The fireplaces we are about to show you are Sterling Silver Coated panels we have developed. No they are not just mirrors! (try it and let us know what happened). We are now working on a template procedure to send the customer to help us properly fit each panel. The first set of pictures are from David Barron in Southern California.
You can see the flames reflect off of the side and back walls from the sterling silver coated panels.
Well if you ever thought of doing this, we now can! We pride ourselves in being the first in creativity, design, innovation and customer service. Most of our ideas and creations will be copied, but many months later we are at that time are already on our 2nd or 3rd generation product line anyway. Imitation is the highest form of FLATTERY! Thank you, no really Thank you! Our drive is to satisfy the customer with creativity and ingenuity.
The fireplace below is a direct vent fireplace in Arroyo Grande (Pismo Beach, California). We mounted the back and then attached the face. This surround was with out a perimeter of interior glass. We usually border a 2" band of glass all around the inside edge. We use aluminum for this project.
This is the standard black frame for the fireplace. Below you can see the back of the surround attached to the fireplace.
