  1. The starting point for your new Heatmaster open fireplace is picking the location, a spare section of wall space or perhaps an unused corner. After selecting your fireplace, size the opening appropriately conforming to the relevant clearances and erect frame.
  2. Install selected insulated Heatmaster firebox ( 'A' series ) on approved hearth and add flue sections penetrating ceiling.
  3. Enclose framing with plasterboard/gyprock or timber panelling ( we recommend villaboard ) again ensuring approved clearances are maintained. ( sides 25mm, top 100mm & rear 25mm)
  4. Choosing from the vast range of decorative or plain fascias and mantelpieces available, you can complete your fireplace in any style you desire.




Gas fireplaces are available in two styles, the open gas convection boxes or the glass fronted sealed units. Some are available with pebbles, logs or coals and generally the sealed gas fires are the more efficient.

Gas fireplaces are all different in their installation and flueing requirements but all these specifications are listed on the heater pages. If you're not sure, contact us .

The gas fireplaces listed on these pages are all tested and approved for the Australian market and all are flued so you won't have any problems with emissions or unburned gas fumes escaping into your living space.

Some of these gas flame fires are extremely efficient and some not so. You will notice that some companies call their fireplaces 'decorative' or 'ambient'. This means that not a great deal of heat is produced but they are intended more as a visual fireplace and there are some great looking styles available. Check on the relevant gas heater pages as the output or heating capacity will be listed. Most gas fires are available as zero clearance for flexibility of installation.

The gas fire brands we sell are Escea, Lopi, Regency, DaVinci, Kalfire and Ortal 

We know that most of you will want great looks and plenty of heat so there is a good selection here that will meet both criteria and most importantly, they are available at the right price.

The wood heaters represented on these pages are the best quality available in Australia today!

We are constantly researching fireplaces of all descriptions and we are confident that all the wood heaters and gas fires on these pages are the best in their class and will provide long and trouble free service.

The wood heater manufacturers listed here have different style heaters so the following guide will help. The four main styles of wood heaters are :-

  • Freestanding wood heaters.....Morso, Lopi, Regency, Hergom, Invicta, ADF, Clean Air, Jindara, Eureka, Focus, Austroflamm and Heatmaster
  • Inbuilt wood heaters.....Regency, Lopi, Eureka, Heatmaster, Jindara, Hergom and Clean Air
  • 2 door....Only Eureka and Jindara.
  • Zero clearance....Regency, CleanAir, Jindara, Eureka and Heatmaster.
  • Suspended....Focus.

All these styles can be achieved with open fireboxes or the all time favorites, the slow combustion wood heater. All except 2 door of course, which are available only as slow combustion (or wood heater with a sealed door).

Zero clearance wood fires are simply insulated fireboxes that are designed to be 'boxed' into a timber or metal framed surround and triple flued to create the inbuilt fireplace look. Some like the Heatmaster A series insulated fireboxes can also be freestanding.

Almost every fireplace requires some accessories such as a fire screen and fire tools and some just need a good dress up. Have a look through our 'General Information' section for all your fireplace accessories and general fireplace information.

The fireplace accessories section contains everything you may need for your fireplace operation and maintenance. 
Fireplace mantelpieces are available for most applications but please check with us for current status.

Abbey Fireplaces also represent wood fired and electric cookers by Esse and Thermalux

All gas fires should be installed by an accredited tradesman in accordance with local codes if any or to ANSI Z223.1 - 1992 and NFPA 54(88) and the requirements listed in the owners manual.

All wood heater installations should be carried out by a licenced tradesman in accordance with AS 2918.
