I'm concerned about this rug rolling up around the edges. One review said it was thin. Do you have any advice?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 21, 2013
Answer:Although these fiberglass rugs are thin, they do not have a tendency to roll or curl on the edges. The rug can be unrolled when received and laid flat on the floor. It will uncurl and lay flat within a couple of days and should remain flat.

What is the thickness of this Goods of the Woods hearth rug?
By Will M. on March 2, 2016
Answer:Per the manufacturer, the Guardian fiberglass rugs are .079" thick, while all other Guardian rugs are the same thickness. This is rather thin compared to their other hearth rugs that are more like carpet. 1/16" is .0625", 1/8" is .125", so the Guardian at .079" is a little thicker than 1/16". The guardian rugs have a face made of woven fiberglass cloth and the back is a vinyl backing. The manufacturer further advised that the fact they are thin does not indicate the level of protection they offer as "Guardian rugs are the highest protection you can put in front of a fireplace."

Is this rug fire resistant?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 4, 2013
Answer:This item does indeed meet current surface flammability tests and is designed to resist damage to hot embers. In our experience, it typically takes 3 to 5 seconds for contact with a hot ember to result in damage to the surface.
