The story of Fire Heart Refract S.A. [Pty] Ltd™ has grown out of the necessity for the upkeep and beautifying of closed combustion stoves and general heating appliances made from mild steel and cast iron. Once Fire Heart Refract S.A. [Pty] Ltd™ products are taken up by the customer, the longevity of cast iron and steel is measured not in years but decades.

More and more people are turning to closed combustion stoves and gas heating. With this being the new and more effective source of heating; safety and secure installations of these units are essential. 


The need for fireproofing has sky-rocketed and continues to grow. Services and other refractory products need to be developed and sourced as the consumers do not all have an understanding of the safety aspects and maintenance surrounding these appliances within their use. So we have developed products with specific abilities and attributes, perfect for the intention to preserve, beautify and protect.

There is a great need for refractory products to support heating and energy.

Please contact us to further discuss how we can help you with your refractory needs.


Even though your cast iron or steel stoves are state-of-the-art technology, nothing can escape the natural elements. Here, we step in and provide products that will assist in the protection against heat, oxidization, and condensation, thereby extending the lifespan of your fireplace and other heating appliances dramatically.
