Normal size base – 3 1/4″ wide x 2 1/4″ high
High base – 3 1/2″ wide x 3″ high

Uprights, collars and turnings

Uprights can be in various sizes (5/8″ to 1″) and are square, round or twisted.
In addition, for brass, we offer roped and reeded uprights.
Collars in brass, copper, bronze or steel, usually fitted at base of the upright. Turnings usually centrally mounted.


Normally 7″ wide, but can be made to the width required and covered in leather in the colour of your choice, plain or deep buttoned. Seats are also upholstered in fabrics supplied by either the customer. Decorative studding, piping etc. as required.

Infill plates

If there is to be a gap between the inside of the fender base and the hearthstone we will fit an infill plate and attach it to the base to protect
the carpet or floor from sparks and hot ashes.

Spark guards

Brass or steel guards can be fitted to the inside of the seats to protect the leather or fabric from the heat of the fire.

Surface finish

All fenders are treated with clear lacquer at no extra cost to provide protection against tarnishing. Please use non-abrasive polish on this surface. Normally only a duster is required.


Please note there is no protection for damage by steel heel caps or sharp objects.
