We are a family business.
In 1995, Wrex Trollope started Braais and Fireplace Centre on Durban Road in Bellville, selling open fireplaces and build-in braais. He quickly gained popularity among builders and customers by boldly lighting a fire in a freestanding open fireplace outside his shop at 6am every morning to advertise his presence. In 1999, Wrex set up INFERNO MARKETING cc and moved to a bigger showroom on Durban Road, known as “the little yellow house on the corner,” trading as Falcon Fires. A second Falcon Fires showroom was soon opened in Tableview, managed by Wrex’s eldest daughter, Samantha.
Due to Wrex's strict policy of service excellence, Falcon Fires became the leading supplier of open fireplaces and braais in the Western Cape. Wrex's staff complement grew, and in 2004, Falcon Fires ventured into the closed system fireplace market with the Morso brand, quickly becoming the main agent in the Western Cape. They also expanded their product range to include popular fireplace brands from Europe, such as Hunter, Hase, Austroflamm, and SAEY, which are imported by their sister company, established in 2001.
In 2011, Fireplace City opened a larger showroom at their current premises at The Bridge Centre, 304 Durban Road, Bellville. They have upsized three times since then, and now have a dedicated warehouse staff who work tirelessly to ensure customer satisfaction and promised back-up service. They also established their flue manufacturing facility in 2015.
With 47 combined years of experience and expertise, Fireplace City is run by Wrex (owner extraordinaire), Vaughn (resident technical expert), and Justine (who joined the showroom in 2017 after managing the warehouse logistics for ten years). They now boast an amazing range of imported products available throughout South Africa, including additional brands like Aduro, Solzaima, Fogo Montanha, and Invicta, catering to every need and preference.
Their motto remains, “We offer the kind of service that others find too much trouble.” Contact Fireplace City for more information.
