Welcome to Fireplace City!

Top suppliers of fireplaces & braais in Cape Town, South Africa.
Established in 1996

For nearly 30 years, our family has specialized in customised domestic heating through Closed System, Slow Combustion Fireplaces.

Our large range of fireplaces includes both insert- and free-standing options made of good quality cast iron or boilerplate steel. These fireplaces are primarily wood burners or multifuel. Closed system fireplaces are highly effective in heating homes, as they retain 80% of the heat generated compared to traditional open fireplaces, which experience an 80% heat loss.

Fireplace City boasts the largest range of closed system stoves in South Africa, with all imported fireplaces being CE approved (European standards rating) and are widely in use throughout Europe and England, with proven track records and solid designs.


Our showroom is conveniently located in The Bridge Centre (304 Durban Road, Bellville) where we have been operating since 2011. With a team of experienced professionals - including Wrex (the owner,) Vaughn (our sales manager and technical expert,) and Justine (sales exec and talented blogger) - we have a combined total of over 60 years of experience to assist our very valued clients.

Our signature brands include Saey, Invicta, Fogo Montanha. This variety allows us to cater to the various needs and preferences of every home and new fireplace owner.

It is worth mentioning that Fireplace City only fits 304 stainless steel flue systems, and were the first to do so in Cape Town many years ago. We install the best, or nothing at all!

Our motto remains unchanged:
"We offer the kind of service that we would like to receive ourselves!"

We eagerly await your call so that we can help you find the perfect fireplace for your home!

SOLZAIMA Freestanding Stoves

The Solzaima Tek freestanding units' increased internal combustion temperature is delivered by the vermiculite lined combustion chamber, which allows the wood burning process to be more efficient and clean than many other fireplaces. Their convection sides allow you to position them closer to furniture and walls, which helps you to save space. These units have excellent control of the combustion process and are very efficient while displaying a fuselage full of flame with the large window.

Fireplace City now has its own House Brand of stoves; hand-picked by Wrex himself to compete in the market by opening the door for a more cost effective yet quality European stove. This range bridges the gap between inferior stoves and top end stoves through better bulk buying and favourable country based pricing. The Starkfire brand will always be made up of known European manufacturer's products widely distributed by various branding outfits throughout Europe.

The secret to the efficiency of the Earthfire firepot lies in the thermal capacity of the claybody. The firepot continues to radiate heat into the room even when the fire has burned low and will stay hot for up to two hours after the fire has gone out.
