    My fireplace is 38" wide. Can I use this unit to protect our wood mantel if the hood would be mounted on brick?
    1 Answer
    This product is exclusively for Empire products as it mounts to the inside of the opening. Empire does make an adjustable universal option that is available. A hood is a great way to help keep heat away from combustible materials.

    My brick fireplace is 40 3/8" wide. Will this hood fit? The brick is 3-1/2" wide so the mounting hardware would need to fit that as well.

    1 Answer

    Can this also be used to protect a TV above the fireplace?
    1 Answer
    A fireplace hood can definitely help to deflect the heat away from an item above the fireplace opening. It is also suggested to install a mantel. Please note that some electronics' warranties are void if placed above a heating appliance. Please consult your manual or manufacturer.
