Which slot is the heat shield supposed to be placed in?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 17, 2011
Answer:The support legs that come with this fire back have numerous slots cut into them that allow you to position the fire back at different angles.
Any of the slots can be used and it is personal preference as to what angle you would like the fire back to be placed.

What is the minimum possible distance from the real wall of the fireplace to the fire back when put in the 90 degree position? I'm also curious about this dimension for the 15"x 15" as well as the 20"x 20" and 18"x 16".

Answer:Per our distributor, when this fire back is placed in the fully upright position, the mounting feet will extend approximately 2.5 inches further back. This extra length is necessary for stability of the fire back. This measurement would be the same for all versions of the Copperfield fire backs.

I'm looking for something that's about 12 x 24 in size to protect my refrigerator from the heat coming from my stove. Do you have something?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on April 23, 2013
Answer:We do not sell any items intended for this purpose. Firebacks such as this item would radiate the heat back toward the stove. We recommend contacting a local machine shop or sheet metal fabricator to have a heat shield fabricated to dimensions suitable for your refrigerator.

Where are your 3 sided versions of this fireplace?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 10, 2011
Answer:At this time, we do not carry a product that has a full three sides. We do carry a few models of decorative gas log surrounds that have two short sides that are used to stand the surround in the back of the fireplace, but not a model with three equal length sides.

I have a gas pipe that lights my wood burning fireplace. What type of feet would i need to work with the fireback?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 16, 2012
Answer:This fireback comes with legs with several slots, allowing you to adjust the angle of the fireback. The slotted support legs provide possible 65°, 75°, and 90° angles for the fireback, so you can customize your application to account for your log lighter.

Would this work for a wood stove? If not, is there anything you would suggest?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 12, 2011
Answer:Every model of fire back that we currently carry has been designed for installation into a traditional, open faced fireplace. The temperatures achieved by a closed combustion wood stove would damage a fire back, even a stainless model such as this one. Please advise what you mean to accomplish by using the fire back. We may have another option.
