What Is a Ready to Finish Enclosure?
Enclosures are a pre-fabricated form that provides the complete structure minus the final cladding.
At the core of an enclosure is a steel framework that sets the basic shape and dimensions. This rigid steel structure is covered with pre-cut panels that either bolt or screw on to the frame.
The Hardie Board panels are a cement board product of silica sand, cellulose fibers, and cement. It is extremely durable, long-lasting, and an ideal surface to finish with stone, veneer, or stucco to match the surroundings.
When fully assembled, you have a complete fire pit structure with the ventilation void at its center; ventilation holes are pre-cut, and vent covers are included with the enclosure.
