    Where can I buy the hood mentioned in the installation data? IAW technical data sheet it is required where there is 8 Inches clear space to the combustible mantle? Also are there multiple lengths available? I have an existing mantle screen and glass doors and it is 40 1/2 inches wide. Are the hoods IL listed?
    1 Answer
    You may use the Empire 28 to 48 Inch Adjustable Fireplace Hood. These items are not necessarily tested extensively to get UL listing as they are meant to redirect heat.

    Is 28” between the bottom of a TV and the top of a gas insert fireplace sufficient to avoid damage to a TV using a real wood fireplace mantel over the fireplace?
    1 Answer
    The mantle clearances will be located in the installation/owners manual and are specific to each individual fireplace.

    Does the mantel function as a heat guard? Our wall above the fireplace gets hot and we are trying to add a TV above our fireplace 

    1 Answer
    If a mantel is installed to the proper clearances around and above a fireplace, it can serve to help shield a television above it, yes.  However, we would strongly recommend recessing the television into the wall.

    Can I use a wooden mantel over a woodstove placed in an alcove?
    1 Answer
    Not over a freestanding wood stove, no.  But, if you are referring to an enclosed, built-in stove, that may be possible, depending on the specific model's framing and clearance requirements, particularly the mantel clearances.

    Where would you measure a 48" mantel?  At the very top and widest or at the bottom?
    1 Answer
    A mantel shelf is typically sized by the full length of the shelf on top.  A three-sided mantel is typically sized by the interior opening width (inside leg to inside leg).

    Do you have a black metal fireplace surround for a Superior DRL6500 that would work with a floating fireplace? It currently has a custom stainless steel we would like to replace.

    1 Answer
    While a surround matching this description is available, this fireplace has to be framed in a certain way for use with this surround. Since your fireplace is already installed with a locally-fabricated surround, the fireplace would have to be removed and re-framed to accept the surround in question.

    What exactly is included in a fireplace mantel and surround kit? Is the stone include?                                                 
    1 Answer
    No, stone/noncombustible facing is never included with a mantel - the mantel itself consists of either just the shelf (if it is a mantel shelf) or legs, breast board and shelf (if it is a full fireplace mantel).

    Do you make custom mantel shelves made to fit 69-5/16" at the bottom?

    1 Answer
    We do not offer any custom mantel shelves and do not have any mantel shelves that have a bottom measurement exactly 69 5/16" wide, but we do have non-tapered 72" wide mantel shelves.

    I have a flag stone fireplace that has an uneven surface surrounding my fireplace insert.  How hard will it be to install a full surround mantel?

    1 Answer
    Without a flat surface, it may indeed be challenging to install a full surround. You will likely need something custom-made on-site to accommodate your application.

    WE are trying to place a large tv over a gas fireplace. For the fit, we may need a mantel that is not 48"high. What is the lowest height mantel that would be appropriate with a gas fireplace?
    1 Answer
    The answer will vary per the mantel clearances outlined in the installation manual for your gas fireplace. Based on shelf depth (or projection), the mantel shelf may only come to a certain point above the fireplace. To answer this question, we would have to know the make and model number of your gas fireplace, but I would recommend considering a mantel shelf and not a full mantel surround with legs on either side as this option will allow you the ability to install the mantel shelf at the minimum height above the fireplace (based on shelf depth).

    I have a free standing ventless propane fireplace with a mantel that has been used for many years with no issues and was serviced by a propane supplier. Last year, a noticeable amount of black residue appeared on the face of the mantle; this has been serviced again and the black residue continues to appear. What could be the cause?
    1 Answer
    You will want to make sure that your logs are arranged in the exact way the manufacturer recommends, as this is one of the leading causes of soot creation.

    Your mantels show measurements for height, width and depth and I assume that the height and width are outside measurements but what does the depth refer to?
    1 Answer
    The depth measurement is usually referring directly to the mantel shelf. Some mantels will also show a leg depth, if the mantel uses vertical side legs.

    from Des Moines, IA asked:
    February 12, 2015
    What are the minimum required clearances for a wood surround and mantel applied to the brick face of a conventional masonry fireplace? Where would I find these figures including allowable projection of the legs and mantels?
    1 Answer
    Per the IRC, the guidelines are to have at least 6 inches of noncombustible veneer between the top and sides of the fireplace opening to the nearest combustible mantel legs or breast board. The legs do not have a projection limitation but between 6 and 12 inches above the fireplace, the breastboard can only project 3/4 of an inch. At the 12 inch mark, the mantel can project further, with no projection limitations.

    Which side does the gas line need to come into on a model CFX32? Does it need to come in through the left side or right and how far up from the floor does it need to be made?
    1 Answer
    Per the manufacturer, the gas line is ideally routed from the left side on this unit and the knockout is approximately 3 inches from the base.
