    Safety is the most important concern when installing a stove or any other heating appliance. With a HomeSaver Mantel Heat Shield you can dramatically reduce the clearances required for both stovepipe and unlisted stoves. And that gives you the flexibility to place your stove where you want it, not just where it will fit.
    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Trish from MD on October 26, 2014
    Our mantel is about 76 inches long and 4 inches thick. Does this heat shield work for most mantels? Is there room for air to circulate?

    By eFireplaceStore on October 27, 2014

    This does indeed work for most mantels with a flat underside and it can be cut to fit for various depths. There are indeed spacers that are included to maintain air space between the shield and the mantel bottom.

    By Betty Causey from Arcadia, LA on January 19, 2012
    From the photo off this product I cannot tell where it is installed. I recently put gas logs in my fireplace and installed a heat deflector hood. However, the wood mantle still gets too hot.
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 19, 2012

    This item is designed to be installed on the underside of a mantel. It can be trimmed to fit, if necessary. Please see the inset picture on this page.

    By Beverly from High Point, NC on October 22, 2013
    Is this mantel shield adjustable? If not, what is its length?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 22, 2013

    This shield is rigid and measures 47 inches in width. It is designed to be cut down if a narrower width is required.

    By Chris from Lakeville MA on August 24, 2015
    It is possible to cut this HomeSaver mantel heat shield? As you can see, I need to cover the center mantle beam support. If I can't trim this heat shield, is there anything else that you would suggest I use?
    By Will M. on August 25, 2015

    You can most certainly cut this item to suit your needs.

    By George Glenn from Raleigh, NC on January 10, 2017
    Does this item come with mounting hardware?
    By Chaz on January 10, 2017

    This Mantel Heat Shield does include mounting hardware.

    By Dave Miller from Franklin TN on December 17, 2011
    I have my TV on my fire place mantle. I have a gas fire place. Any good way of deflecting the heat so I can use the fireplace without melting my TV? The area around the fire place box is granite - mantle is wood.
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 19, 2011

    Generally, it is best to use a fireplace hood to deflect the heat from the mantel and/or T.V. You may view an example here:

    Elite Adjustable 6 Inch Fireplace Hood with Surface Mount

    This model is designed to mount to the facing, just above the opening of the fireplace and deflect heat further into the room.

    By Skip from Venice, FL on December 12, 2014
    Can this heat shield be cut shorter? My opening is 33 inches.
    By eFireplaceStore on December 12, 2014

    This shield can indeed be cut down to smaller dimensions if needed.

    By Carolyn from Clemmons, NC on June 14, 2013
    Where does the HomeSaver Mantel Heat Shield attach? Can it be attached with my stone surround?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on June 14, 2013

    This mantel shield is designed to mount directly to the underside of your mantel. Hardware including ceramic spacers will be shipped along with this shield.

    By Ted Moujlton from Mt. Vernon, TX on November 20, 2011
    I don't have a mantel...TV is mounted about 15 in. above top of fireplace...fireplace is ventless...heat goes straight up and causes the TV bottom to become extremely hot....I need something about four to five inches wide to divert heat out into room....would need about a one inch lip on the back to screw to the fireplace....the fireplace opening is 35 in. please...
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 21, 2011

    I highly recommend using a hood to deflect the heat from the fireplace around the t.v. An item such as this model would be ideal:

    Elite Adjustable 6 Inch Fireplace Hood with Surface Mount

    This hood can be mounted directly to the face of the fireplace and help to keep not only the t.v., but any other combustible material above the fireplace from getting too hot.

    By Hector from Dallas. Tx on January 9, 2012
    I have an outdoor wood burning fireplace made of all stone. How or what can I install on it to get more heat directed out instead of straight up the chimney?

    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 10, 2012

    While this item is not what you need, you may be interested in purchasing a fireback to put in your fireplace. These will radiate heat back out of the fireplace. Please see this link for our selection of firebacks:

    By Doug from Buchanan Dam, Texas on December 7, 2011
    My fireplace mantel is only 8 1/4" deep and the lip on the front of the mantel is a nominal 1/2" below the "flat underside" of the mantel. Would you suggest that I modify your shield to fit my situation with jigsaw?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 8, 2011

    This shield can certainly be trimmed to fit your application. I would however, recommend the use of a stationary band saw over a jig saw, as this would give better results.

    You could then place the cut end against the mantel to make it less noticeable.

    By Doug from Buchanan Dam, Texas on December 7, 2011
    Does the 2.75" angled lip install against the stone wall of a fireplace below the mantel or is it meant to protect the "front side" of the mantel? Can the angled lip be "shortened" if it is deeper than the depth of the underside of the mantel and the decorative wood front?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 8, 2011

    The angled lip on this shield is meant to protrude out and up along the front of the mantel.

    It would be difficult to shorten the lip, given the radius that has been applied to it. If the shield needs to be shortened, your only option would be to trim it on the straight, back end of the shield.

    By Terry from Dallas, Texas on June 3, 2014
    What are the thermal properties of the shield? Is it UL listed / rated? I want to know if there is a maximum temperature specification, and would this ever warp?
    By eFireplaceStore on June 4, 2014

    Per the manufacturer, this product does not carry a UL listing. It has been tested to 550 degrees without warping, but is designed purely as a supplemental guard to prevent discoloration or cracking of a wooden mantel.

    By Tom Audley from Olathe, KS on October 11, 2012
    My fireplace is 36 inches wide. Do I need the 47 inch heat shield, or can I use the 42 inch shield?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 11, 2012

    The 42" model will indeed be suitable for use with your 36" opening.

    By Andy from Oklahoma on December 2, 2016
    I have an outside gas fireplace the does not have a chimney. I wondered if you had another option for a shield that would redirect the hot air more into the space, to get more heat to the people.
    By Brennan W. on December 2, 2016

    Unfortunately, we do not have a hood that is meant for use outdoors. You will likely need to have one custom fabricated with stainless steel.

    By Debbie from CA on May 18, 2017
    If my fireplace mantel is getting too hot, as the fireplace was put in many years ago, how can a metal shield protect it? Won't that just get hot and then, in the case of the mantel, even hotter?
    By Will M. on May 18, 2017

    The mantel shield is spaced out from the mantel surface with spacers, so the mantel shield may get quite hot, but the gap between the metal and combustible metal will reduce any heat transferred to the mantel greatly.

    By Don from Chicago on October 19, 2011
    The fireplace mantle heat shield shown looks as though it must be attached to a mantle. I need to delfect gas logs heat from sending too much heat to outside wall. We have a tapestry (framed) on that wall and do not want the heat to destroy it. Would this CPF-4110 item benefit us in our problem?

    By Simon H. on October 19, 2011

    You are correct - our CPF-54110 is indeed designed to be mounted to the underside of a mantel to protect it from the rising heat of your fireplace. Is your tapestry hung directly above the fireplace, thereby above the mantel? If so, I think your mantel would be doing the most work in protecting your tapestry. It is acting similar to a fireplace hood. It forces the heat out and away from the wall (and your tapestry) above it. Our CPF-54110 would definitely help protect your mantel from the heat of the fireplace but I do not believe that it will help your mantel protect your tapestry. Unless, of course, you mount it in such a way that allows it to protrude forward from the mantel; effectively making your mantel deeper and forcing the heat out further from your tapestry.

    By ray from Orlando, FL on December 30, 2012
    Do you have this heat shield in a 42-inch wide model, or can you cut this one?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 31, 2012

    This shield can certainly be trimmed to fit your application. We recommend using a stationary band saw to do this.

    By wilson langton from feurabush,n.y. on September 11, 2012
    I have a Quadrafire 5100 wood insert. The top of the insert to the bottom of the mantle measures 20 inches. I used my old stove for over 20 years with no problems, but with the new stove the mantle gets a little hotter. Will this heat shield help?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on September 11, 2012

    Yes, this item is ideal to ease your concern about the heat on the mantel.

    By Jody from Utah on March 7, 2016
    Our mantel is about 10.25 inches deep. There would be a very small gap at the back of the shield. Is that ok? Do you have any suggestions if you see this as a concern?
    By Will M. on March 8, 2016

    The installation of this heat shield will not serve as a corrective action for a mantel installed at the incorrect height above a fireplace opening and will only prevent cracks and discoloration of an existing wood mantel. As such, the portion of the mantel that is uncovered may discolor and I would recommend purchasing a section or sections of 24 gauge galvanized sheet metal locally to fasten to the back of the shield with screws. You may use a can of Thurmalox Low-Sheen Black Paint - 12 oz. Spray Can - 42100 to match the color of the heat shield after the sheet metal is cut and attached.

    By David from Clarksville, TN on January 17, 2013
    I have a 36" firebox with painted wood above as well as decorative wooden post on each side. The paint is starting to bubble just above the firebox so I need a 36" heat shield to screw directly to the firebox. Do you have a 36" model that screws directly to the firebox?

    When we purchased our new fireplace the store never said anything about having to place the mantle 26" above the fireplace. That would have placed it about ceiling level. This item allowed us to place it much lower.

    Does the job

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    My mantel is narrow at the bottom and slopes up so I had to reinforce the shield with two pieces of aluminum angle and drill new holes for the front. It fits perfect now and protects the mantel.
    simple and economical
    a little flimsy in the middle and not that attractive
