A hand-pitched volcanic firebrick, North Ankar Firebrick is a sophisticated alternative to manufactured brick. The natural split edge, visible when installed, has a rustic handcrafted finish that is ideal for running bond and herringbone firebox patterning. The reflection of firelight on this textured stone brings warmth, simplicity and timeless beauty, making this stone firebrick an essential design component in your next firebox project.

North Ankar Firebrick comes in standard size and is also available in a slimmer Isoline profile, ideal for prefabricated fireboxes or the re-lining of existing fireboxes, as the firebrick does not need to be trimmed for installation.

Recommended Uses

Firebrick and surrounds, veneer, paving


We recommend using the split edge in areas of extreme heat.

As you'd expect in a natural product, stone does vary in colour and texture, even in the same quarry block. That's what makes stone so unique.
We recommend using the images on our website to initially chose the colour, texture and look you prefer, then talk to us to see our current samples. Mockups are also a great option before making your final decision. We strive to provide a product of the highest quality, but please remember it's stone, not paint. The colour and texture of the next layer in the quarry was defined millions of years ago.
