    from New jersey asked:
    February 2, 2018
    Can I cut the heat sheild to 26 inches to fit my fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Yes, this is 24 gauge steel that can be modified. You will have to redrill your mounting holes as well and will probably want to use a hi-temp black paint to finish off the cut edges.

    This shield is 47" X10". The top of my fire place is 53" and my mantel width is 7.5". Does eFireplace have a shield for me?
    1 Answer
    We do not have a shield this size, but you can have one locally made out of galvanized steel with hi-temp black paint.

    My mantle is 15 1/2 inches; how can I protect it from the heat?
    1 Answer
    A mantel this deep would likely need a heat shield custom made. Unfortunately, this is not something we offer. One could be cut from a piece of 22 gauge sheet metal and mounted to the underside of the mantel with an air gap.

    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

    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.
    1 Answer
    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.

    from Utah asked:
    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

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

    from MD asked:
    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

    from Dallas, Texas asked:
    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

    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?

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

    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.

    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?
    1 Answer
    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: Fireplace Firebacks

    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.
    1 Answer
    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.

    from Buchanan Dam, Texas asked:
    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

    from Buchanan Dam, Texas asked:
    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?
    1 Answer
    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.

    from Mt. Vernon, TX asked:
    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...
    1 Answer
    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.

    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.
    By David from knoxville on December 16, 2011
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Does the job
    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.
    Prossimple and economical
    Consa little flimsy in the middle and not that attractive
