MagraHearth’s non-combustible mantels are handcrafted masterpieces that add unique beauty, warmth, and character to any fireplace.
MagraHearth’s non-combustible products can be placed closer to the fireplace and lower than their real wood counterparts. They offer the designer a new tool to solve the “Mantel Clearance” issues arising from the placement of televisions and artwork.
MagraHearth mantels have been meticulously hand crafted to replicate the inherent beauty of age old wood and stone. With the use of patented lightweight concrete, our craftsmen have been able to match the actual beams, siding, and other elements of century old barns and structures around the midwest. All of the wood used to produce MagraHearth mantels has been reclaimed from a 150 year old barn. Our detail, color and non-combustible features create a unique design feature for your hearth.
Cultured Stone products originated in 1962 when brothers Garrett and Floyd Brown of Vallejo, California saw the need for a new kind of building material. The entrepreneurial pair of plasterers developed manufactured stone veneer-a concrete mixture cast in flexible molds and hand-colored with iron oxide pigments to resemble natural stone. Made of lightweight aggregate materials, the veneers were approximately one-quarter the weight of natural stone and easily adhered to most wall surfaces.
The Browns’ small, regional company began selling to dealers in Northern California, but grew quickly as it added new products with broader geographic appeal. Soon, Cultured Stone products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada. Increased sales eventually established Cultured Stone as the undisputed brand leader and preferred name in the MSV category.
