Can this panel be used in a wood burning fireplace? If not, do you have any that will work?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on October 21, 2013
No, this panel is only suitable for use inside a gas fireplace. However, we do offer some universal refractory panels that will work for your woodburning fireplace. Please see the following links:
One 24"h x 28"w Panel
Two 24" h x 40"w Panels
These panels are about 3/4" thick and can be cut down to the size you need with a masonry blade or tile saw. They are suitable for use as side, rear and floor panels inside any manufactured woodburning fireplace.

I am converting a wood burning insert to one that uses gas logs only. Is this product OK to line my firebox with? Also, is it satisfactory to use this on the firebox base under the gas logs?
By eFireplaceStore on December 22, 2014
Answer:This product can be used to replace the heavy refractory liners that come standard in a wood burning fireplace, as long as the unit will only be used for gas. A panel can be used on the floor, but care should be taken to place the log grate carefully to prevent crushing the panel. Should the unit be converted back to wood burning duty, the ceramic panels will need to be removed again. Please keep in mind that removing the refractory panels will void the listing of the fireplace.

Can this panel be used in a pellet stove?
By eFireplaceStore on August 18, 2014
Answer:Unfortunately, no. These ceramic panels are designed for use in a gas application only. Exposure to combustion byproducts in a wood burning or gas application will cause them to degrade rapidly.

Is that price per panel and would you use brick on the bottom or could you use the panels?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 4, 2012
Answer:This is indeed a per panel price. This is designed to be used on the walls of the gas fireplace only. The ceramic construction is not strong enough to be used on the floor of the opening.
It would be necessary to use masonry brick, mortar, or metal for the base.
