• How are your stone chimneys made?

Production of these fireplaces starts with a frame of wood. On this wooden frame different stones are stuck in a layer after which the chimney gets its shape. In this way we get a real stone fireplace with all the advantages of real natural stone, but with much less material and much less kilos.

The stones can be left fairly rough; unpolished. The stones can also be polished nicely smooth (matte-shiny); polished

All fireplaces are made by hand from natural stone. Each one is completely unique with natural imperfections. These natural stone fireplaces have a vintage, weathered appearance.

• What is composite stone?

Composite stone is a mixture of grinded stone with synthetic resin. This creates a structure of sandstone with characteristic unevenness/bumps. Through the use of the artificial resin, the weight remains relatively low.

• How do I install a Xaralyn fireplace?

Our Xaralyn fireplaces are delivered as one piece. While the matching fireplace insert will be delivered in a separate package, which can be easily assembled. You can install the wall fireplaces by using the manual section “on the wall”. For all fireplaces (wall-models or freestanding models) no further assembly is required.

• How do I clean a natural stone fireplace?

We offer both polished and unpolished natural stone (fossil stone) fireplaces. A polished fireplace is smooth and slightly shiny, and is best cleaned with a dry soft cloth or, when needed, with a slightly damp cloth. An unpolished version of the fireplace has a rough structure with an unique appearance, which has the tendency to rapidly absorb liquids. So make sure to remove any liquid spills on your fireplace immediately. This can easily be removed using a soft and dry cloth. 

• How do I clean my STAINLESS STEEL fireplace?

• What is MDF?

MDF is a mixture of finely grind wood fibres with synthetic resin glue, which is then compressed. Xaralyn provides MDF-fireplaces with a quality coat of paint for a nice, smooth look.

• What is fossil stone?

Fossil Stone is a unique natural stone type corresponding to rough or polished marble which we have attached to a wooden surface. This creates the feel and look of real marble, yet it is relatively light weight making it possible to move the Fossil Stone fireplace around easily. Fossil Stone is a natural product, thus there may be small colour-and/or structural abnormalities in the material. As a result, every fireplace has its own unique character. Xaralyn offers a range from polished (smooth and shiny) to unpolished versions (rough structure and some difference in appearance) of the stone.

• How is a Xaralyn fireplace delivered?

Our Xaralyn fireplaces are delivered as one piece. While the matching fireplace insert will be delivered in a separate package. 

• Can you combine every fireplace with every fireplace insert?

The Xaralyn collection offers many combination possibilities, which allows you to fully customize your own fireplace. Please check out the possible combinations per fireplace on our collection page. Clicking on the fireplace of choice will give you an overview of the possible inserts.  

• How do I clean a composite stone fireplace?

• Can stainless steel rust?

Stainless steel is not a 100% free of rust. The emergence of rust or corrosion is caused by contact with polluted air, aggressive substances or cleaning agents. You can treat stainlessteel by means of specially developed products for protection on a long-term basis.
