Twin Cities Fireplace Company Introduces New Fireplace Installation Material
All Seasons Fireplace now carries Skamotec 225 as a building board to use around fireplaces
By: All Seasons Fireplace
With Skamotec 225, adding a home fireplace is much easier. Intended for interior, non-load bearing wall applications, the new building board eliminates the need for wood or steel frame construction. Skamotec is 50 percent lighter than other non-combustible boards on the market today, making it easy to handle and install. Building fireplace enclosures is easily done using common wood working tools and fasteners to cut, shape and combine the material, while leaving scarce amounts of excess material. Construction time is greatly reduced, helping homeowners save on labor costs.
Even more important than the ease of installation is the added safety Skamotec 225 provides. Classified in the United States and Canada as a non-combustible material, Skamotec has a high heat resistance with an R-value of 2.38 per inch and compressive strength of 406 lbs./sq inch. The most impressive fact is that this building material is able to withstand temperatures up to 1832 degrees Fahrenheit!
All homeowners want peace of mind when installing a fireplace, and Skamotec offers that. It provides excellent thermal protection and resistance to fire. With Skamotec as the frame, the fireplace surround can be completed with stone, brick, tile or other material of the homeowner's choice. The Skamotec 225 boards also resist cracks, eliminating the need for costly repairs around the fireplace down the road. Another positive aspect of the material is that it's non-toxic and landfill friendly. So, if the time comes to ever remove the material, homeowners can rest assured that it won't be harming the environment.
All Seasons Fireplace recently designed a wall structure around a European Home fireplace in their showroom using Skamotec 225. The entire job took two workers just three hours. They are excited to see what their builders will continue to do with this material. For homeowners wanting to install a fireplace, this is a great option to use for the framework.
All Seasons Fireplace sells and installs fireplaces, fireplace inserts, freestanding stoves, outdoor fireplaces and more. The company has been helping the Twin Cities metro with all their fireplace needs for more than 10 years.
