With FMI's new Masonry Series of wood burning fireplaces and accessories, builders and contractors can offer homebuyers a traditional masonry hearth presentation with the low cost, ease and speed of installation of a factory-built fireplace. Once the firebox is in place, contractors will find installation of the firebrick liner a snap. The patent-pending "Snap Lock" system consists of labeled templates allowing for easy placement of pre-cut and labeled bricks. The kit comes with hi-temp mortar to grout the finished fireplace with no metal showing. The series is available in 36", 42" and 50" width fireplaces and a choice of traditional stacked brick or herringbone brick patterns.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Doing a chimney job and want to do it safely without a lot of fuss? Sky Hooks are the answer. Using the heavy steel hooks capable of holding over 500 pounds, one person can rig a chimney to be repaired in about 15 minutes. There's no longer a need to use pipe scaffolding, and by walking on the ladder rungs, there's no reason to ever walk on the roof, lessening the risk of injury to the user and the roof itself. There are no parts to lose, as everything is welded together; plus, users now have a safe place to put tools and materials. Two hooks and two brackets cost about the same as a good ladder — use them once, and they pay for themselves. For more information, call (877) 759-3232 or visit www.skyhooksinc.com.
