An Introduction to FDC Fireplaces
Posted on 10 September 2018
FDC Fireplaces were established in 1997. They have now grown to become one of the leading trade distributors of fireplaces, and all related products in the South of England. FDC (UK) Ltd is based near Salisbury and holds comprehensive stocks of our entire product range within 20,000 ft of warehousing.
The FDC fireplace range caters for all tastes and budgets and all of their products are designed by us here in the UK. Recently the company invested in a new design suite that includes the latest 3D design software. This enables FDC to resize any fireplace in their range and produce a 3D image for the customer, allowing the customer to see how the fireplace will look, before it is chosen and fitted into your home. Alternatively, if you cannot find what you're looking for, let FDC know, and they can design for you a completely bespoke fireplace.
FDC are committed to only supplying their product range through a carefully selected network of retail showrooms, those which are knowledgeable of FDC's product and those that can offer the end user a complete and professional service.
Here at Stovesworld Cardiff we are proud to announce that we are stockists of the well respected FDC fireplaces and accompanying products.
About FDC Products
Encompassing Limestone, Marble, Timber, Cast Iron, Granite Slate, Gas, Electric and solid fuel appliances. FDC has over 1000 product lines in stock and endeavour to deliver all orders received within 10 working days. FDC's ethos has been instilled into all their suppliers that product quality is paramount, this gives you, the customer, piece of mind when purchasing an FDC Fireplace.
The sale of fireplaces on the internet is now a common practice, however, FDC feels that in some cases this can undermine the role of the independent fireplace showroom, and hence have adopted the following policy:
"We will not supply any customer who does not have a bona fide retail showroom which has a selection of our products on display. We will only deliver our product to the showroom address unless an alternative delivery address has been requested and authorised by FDC themselves. Should any of our customers choose to sell our product via their own web site, we will supply goods but, will not deliver to alternative addresses".
FDC provide a large variety of fireplaces made from a vast amount of Natural occurring materials, these include;
Natural Marble Fireplaces
The FDC range of marble fireplaces are hand crafted by skilled tradesmen. They use a selection of natural materials when constructing these fireplaces, in hope that every customer finds a fireplace to suit all tastes and decor. The natural marble range of fireplaces are constructed using three materials of contrasting colours. The hard wearing Black Granite, the Egyptian creme and the natural crystalline marble of the Venetian white.
The Micromarble range of fireplaces are constructed from a man-made material which comprises 5% resin and 95% marble powder mixed with a pigment colouring. Although this ensures consistent pattern and colouring, variation can occur from photographs, printed material and any showroom displays.
FDC Timber surrounds & shelves are all hand made in the UK. The pine surrounds are available in an antique wax or unfinished suitable, for a finish of your own choice. The majority of the solid oak surrounds are available in the natural light oak but, the Belfast is also available in a brown Oak finish.
The FDC range of Timber surrounds provides you the customer, or stockist with a range of designs and natural finishes to complete your fireplace. Whether it is to frame your stove installation or the surround to a cast iron arch, the timber products bring a welcoming natural warmth to your home.
Natural Stone Fireplaces & Surrounds
FDC natural stone fireplaces are made from specially selected stone. Every fireplace is hand-finished and dry-built before packing, thus ensuring each piece fits together perfectly. Due to the natural variations in the stone colouring and veining, every FDC natural stone fireplace is unique. A fireplace is the living heart of any home and an FDC stone fireplace will become the focal point of your home for many years to come.
