Please note that this panel kit will only work with Empire's Tahoe Deluxe 36" models and will not work with any other manufactured fireplace or in any other application. While the installation of these panels is quite simple if you have this fireplace, the kit will arrive in set measurements and may not be cut. To answer your question, these panels are much more lightweight when compared to the much thicker, refractory cement panels used with wood burning fireplaces. These panels are purely decorative.
