I have brass fireplace and do not want to remove them. Is this Elite Canopy fireplace hood for use with track mount fireplaces the right item for me? Is there an alternative?

You may install a surface mount hood
over your fireplace doors if you do not want to interfere with the operation of the doors. If you have a glass enclosure, we also offer a Glass Enclosure Fireplace Hood,
which is specifically designed to slip behind the glass enclosure and give a more integral look.

What are Track Mount Fireplaces? I do not know if I have one.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 9, 2011
The "track mount" refers to the screen track that is built into many manufactured fireplaces. If you have a metal firebox, it will most likely have a channel built into the top of the box that allows the screen panels to slide back and forth.
This type of hood would mount into that screen track. The only disadvantage to this is that the pull screen could no longer be utilized. If this is not an option, you may want to consider a surface mount hood, which can be attached above the fireplace instead. You can view our adjustable model here:
