Contraflow Masonry Heater Core Kit
The Contraflow has been the predominant masonry heater design for decades in
North America. Also called the Finnish fireplace or Finnish stove, the
contraflow has been the Model T of masonry heater designs in North America.
Typical Contraflow kits have some refractory parts where brick-by-brick building
would be time consuming. With our modular blocks, however, we are able to ship
you the entire Contraflow heater core on just a couple of pallets. No need to run
to the brickyard for firebrick, or spend hours setting hundreds of firebricks.
The entire unit can be easily built within 4-6 hours using our modular tongue &
groove, interlocking system.
Bake ovens are a popular feature of many of our cores, and the Contraflow heater
is no exception. If you prefer to cook while the heater is in operation, choose our
white oven option. If you can wait until the fire is out and prefer an improved
fire viewing experience, choose our black oven option, where the flame runs right
through the oven, enhancing your viewing experience while still allowing you
to cook delicious pizzas, breads, and meats after the fire has burned out.
The kit includes cast core block modules, cast iron and
ceramic-glass loading door, two cast iron cleanout doors, chimney damper,
refractory clay mortar mix, insulation board where needed, and
construction and owners manuals.
The kit ships on two pallets.
