Schiedel Chimney Systems - It's Definitely Not A Fire Pit!
Outdoor living enthusiasts can enjoy entertaining to their hearts’ content with the new Garden Fireplace from leading chimney manufacturer, Schiedel Chimney Systems.
The Fireplace is formed from natural pumice, which is sourced from the Hekla Volcano in Iceland, before being processed and then delivered in a complete packaged solution.
Versatile and stylish, the Garden Fireplace creates a stunning central focus for any outdoor living space while keeping smoke at bay, making it the ideal solution to alfresco living, dining and heating; a trend which is set to thrive this summer despite the unpredictable British weather!
It can be freestanding, raised or built against all wall which, along with its relatively small footprint, makes it perfect for even the tiniest of gardens. The addition of a barbeque grill allows this stylish fireplace to double up as an outdoor kitchen.
Part of Schiedel’s Isokern range, the Garden Fireplace is constructed of naturally lightweight yet highly insulating pumice, making it easy to assemble and providing all the insulation needed to take the chill out of those cool summer evenings.

“Creating dedicated spaces for cooking, eating and entertaining is a key trend amongst homeowners wishing to reap the health benefits of the great outdoors, while at the same time maximising their usable space,” said David Wright, Residential Sales and Marketing Manager at Schiedel Chimney Systems.
“With its highly insulated firebox, cooking facilities and sleek rendered finish, the Isokern Garden Fireplace really is a must-have feature for gardens large or small, bringing the comfort of the inside, out.”
Garden spaces hold hidden potential, beyond the traditional plastic furniture and vegetable patch they can be transformed into versatile cooking, eating and entertaining spaces that blur the lines between indoors and out, adding extra footprint and potentially increasing the value of a property by up to 20% - well worth doing whether it’s a step on the ladder or your ‘forever home’.
Central to this is the garden fire, a welcoming focal point that extends the life of your outdoor living space long after the nights draw in.
