Easy Installation | Installation Video coming soon!

Classic Stone Mantel material is lightweight, ensuring that preparation for and installation are much easier and less costly than traditional solid stone mantels. Special wall and floor reinforcement is not necessary. In most case installation of mantel components (facing panel [1 or 3 pieces], 2 legs, 1 shelf) can be done with construction adhesive.

Fire Resistance and Clearance

These mantels are fire resistant and allow for zero clearance from combustible material (no space required between firebox and this mantel material or surround facing), making these ideal for any mantel installation including wood and gas fireplaces.
