AJ Steel-Backed Surrounds provide the extra strength and rigidity needed for oversized surrounds. Steel framing and AJ’s dual alignment system ensures that the surround stays straight and square. When the wall around the fireplace is not straight, flat, or both, the Steel Backed surround is the only solution. The surround will provide a flat, even appearance. 

Please Note: Care must be taken to not force the surround to conform to the uneven wall by over-tightening fasteners.
