Skamol Panels provide high insulation value and thermal shock resistance. They have been tested and are approved by Omni Labs for installation as a replacement for refractory panels in factory-built fireplaces. These panels measure 1″ X 24″ X 39 5/8″ and can be cut or drilledas needed. Unlike ceramic refractory panels, Skamolex panels can be cut with ordinary wood-working tools and produce little or no dusting. They can be easily drilled, or a router used if a gas line for a gas log lighter or gas log set is desired.
Note: Panels will expand and contract as temperatures inside the fireplace increase or decrease. It is important to incorporate a necessary allotment when installing new panels. Follow the installation instructions when measuring and cutting the panels.
Skamol Panels have been in use in Europe for some time and are free from asbestos. They are tested for asbestos twice; once at the manufacturing plant under strict regulations and once before they are shipped overseas. Because of the unique location that the materials are mined from, you wont find any panels exactly like the Skamol Panels. Easy to cut, easy to install makes for quicker, cleaner installations that are much easier on your back!
