    Will this fit a boulevard ventless screen fireplace?
    1 Answer
    This is a surface mount hood, meant to be installed on the surface above your fireplace.  So it will work as a hood that can be surface-mounted above a unit that is anywhere from 28 to 48 inches wide.

    Is this open on the backside where it is against the fireplace?
    1 Answer
    This is a surface-mount hood, so the mounting strip will be behind the hood, where you anchor horizontally into the area above the fireplace opening.

    January 20, 2020
    Can this be mounted to the brick above the fireplace opening? Will it sufficiently deflect heat from ventless gas logs  and a T.V  and sound bar mounted above?
    1 Answer
    This hood may indeed be mounted on the surface above the fireplace opening and a hood like the product in question should always be used with ventless gas logs. If the television is installed above the mantel and the mantel is installed at the proper height above the fireplace opening per the gas log manufacturer's minimum mantel clearance requirements, this hood should protect the television and mantel.

    We have an insert that has started to ruin the mantle above it. The insert already has a hood so this would be in addition to the current hood. Would something like this work? The insert is approximately 4in deep, so this should still stick out 1/2 in. Just not sure if that is enough to protect the mantle above.
    1 Answer
    We apologize, but there is no way for us to know if an additional 1/2" projection will sufficiently protect your mantel. We recommend verifying your model's specific mantel clearance requirements, which should also indicate if such clearances can be reduced by a hood, and, if so, what the projection of the hood should be.

    Instant Customer Appeal
    Was impressed by this product. I ordered for two jobs and each install went smoothly. I really liked the paint finish on these and more importantly my customers did too. Will definitely order this brand again.
    ProsVersatile in that it can easily be installed inside the opening or on the face. Came with all necessary attachment hardware.
    ConsSlight oil residue on installation brackets got on my hands and I inadvertently smudged a little onto the face of the hood on one of them, but I was able to wipe off to customers' satisfaction. All's well that ends well.

    High quality construction
    The product is obviously of high quality and exactly as advertised. On a flush surface, it would be very easy to install. However, I did not want to risk cracking the three-quarter inch thick marble surround so the unit had to be installed directly to the sheet metal of the gas fireplace and inside the perimeter of the surround. This makes the installation a little tricky because the screws have to be inserted and tightened blind when installing inside the surround.

    A few tips: use masking tape on the sheet metal and the unit itself as a template to mark and locate the screws. After drilling the holes use the screws to thread the holes so the screws can be hand started when installing the unit. Once started the screws can be tightened easily by using a small socket in vise grip pliers.

    Looks Good...Hard to Install
    Because of the location of the screws, it is practically impossible to tighten them. They are so high up in the hood that you cannot get a screwdriver up there to tighten them down. However, it works well and deflects the heat away from my mantle. It would be much better if it had a "cool to the touch" finish on the topside. The metal gets very hot.
    ProsLooks good, blends in well.
    ConsHard to install, gets very hot.
