Old fashioned Quarry floor tiles are cheap. Does anyone think these would be suitable?


At that price could buy half a dozen and test a mock up.

quarry tiles normally about 6mm thick compared to the depth of a fire brick or a reclaimed red, would expect it to crack if not bedded well

seen quarry tiles used on a hearth but no that I can recall in a firebox

reclaimed red bricks don’t need to be best quality as not n show
