Want a Masonry Style Fireplace but don't like the cost? We have the solution for you.
Isokern is a newer product to the hearth industry. Their modular systems have lightweight components and are less expensive to install than traditional masonry fireplaces. Unlike metal boxes or concrete systems, they are built to last.
The average masonry fireplace, that includes the labor of a mason, costs on average $40,000. Whereas an isokern unit can cost anywhere between $8,000 - $10,000. It also saves time on installation and cost on labor as the box can sit directly on a wood subfloor in most applications, and in the remaining a firelite stand can be added. Another great feature is that it usually can be installed in less than two days!
Their pumice material ships directly to their manufacturing facility in Chesapeake, Virgina after being extracted form Iceland’s Mt. Hekla Volcano. With their GreenTech Solution, all Isokern wood burning fireplaces are EPA Phase II qualified and are tested and listed to the highest standards in the United States and Canada. You can also get these units in gas to provide another style of look.
Another first, their FireLite Application enables architects, builders and designers to specify a wood burning masonry fireplace system in projects that couldn’t include one in the past. Using their Metal Stand in the Fire-Lite Application, both the Isokern Magnum and Standard Series can be placed directly on a combustible floor or be recessed into any combustible floor system as an approved, listed application with detailed plans available. They are even great for outdoor applications!
