    Fireplace Smoke Guards

    Using fireplace smoke guards can help improve your hearth experience tremendously. Wood fireplaces produce smoke as a matter of course; use our wide product selection to ensure this smoke is directed away from your room and, instead, filtered through your chimney, protecting your air quality and your hearth leisure. Easy installation is, similarly, a matter of course with these advanced options. The guards install, quite simply, in the top of the fireplace opening, reducing the hassle involved from the first moments they're in your hands. Diversity is, also, an inherent quality of these products; you'll find a variety of widths available, making locating your ideal match a simple, often, easily satisfied requirement.

    Are fireplace smoke guards needed if you do not burn wood in a gas fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Smoke guards would only be needed in masonry installations where smoke rollout is experienced due to the fireplace being over-sized for the chimney diameter.

    I have a fireplace with an opening that's 36" wide and 30.5" tall. The flue at the top of my chimney isn't very large, maybe 4" x 8". The chimney is on an exterior wall of my house. What would be the recommended size smoke guard? Could I get by with a 4" guard or should I go bigger?
    1 Answer
    Your fireplace opening is severely over-sized for the flue. For every 10 square inches of opening, you should have 1 square inch of flue. For an opening of this size, you would need a 10.5" x 10.5" flue. Using an 8" smoke guard would decrease your opening size to requiring only a 9" diameter flue, which will still be slightly over-sized for your flue that equates to just over 5.5".

    What is your recommendation for figuring out the correct size of the fireplace smoke guard? I am trying to decide between the 6 inch and 8 inch.
    1 Answer
    Ideally, your fireplace opening will be a 10 to 1 ratio for ideal draft, meaning that for every 10 square inches of fireplace opening, there will be 1 square inch of flue. You will need to figure the total area of the fireplace opening and know the area of your flue tiles in order to verify which shelf will bring you closer to the 10 to 1 ratio. If you are unable to measure your flue tiles, there is a test that can be performed with a piece of plywood or scrap metal. Using a piece that is as wide as your fireplace and 8 inches tall, build a fire and bring the fireplace up to temperature. Hold the piece of wood or metal so that the top 6 inches of the fireplace is covered. If the fireplace stops smoking, the 6 inch smoke guard will work. If you must drop the piece to 8 inches to stop the smoking, the larger shelf will be needed.

    My fireplace opening is 42" Wide by 29.5" High. How do I decide if I need a 4" or 6" smoke guard?
    1 Answer
    The size of the smoke guard will depend on the size of your flue tiles that are venting the fireplace. Ideally, your fireplace will have a 10:1 opening to flue ratio, meaning for every 10 square inches of fireplace opening, there will be 1 square inch of flue opening. The dimensions of your chimney flue will need to be known in order to figure which smoke guard is needed.

    Do you carry smoke guards for wood stove inserts?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, no. Wood stove inserts are typically operated with the doors closed, so smoke guards for them are not very common.

    How do I know what size smoke guard I need?
    1 Answer
    The size of the smokeguard that is needed will depend on the size of your fireplace opening and the size of the chimney flue. The fireplace opening and flue should have a 10 to 1 ratio to one another. Meaning, for every 10 square inches of fireplace opening, there should be 1 square inch of flue size. Based on that math, you should figure exactly how much the opening will be sized down using each guard.

    How do I decide which width of smoke guard I need to purchase?
    1 Answer
    Ideally, your fireplace will have a 10 to 1 opening to flue ratio. That is to say, your fireplace flue will have 1 square inch of area to every 10 square inches of opening size. If you know the size of your flue, you can use that to determine how big your opening would need to be to get to that 10 to 1 ratio. You can then determine which size smoke shelf would size down your opening to get to that correct ratio.

    How do I install a 4" smoke guard with a glass door fireplace?
    1 Answer
    In most cases, there will be enough of a brick ledge behind the doors to allow the guard to be anchored. However, you will likely need to remove the door surround in order to mount the smoke guard. Removing the doors will allow access to either side of the surround and will provide the ability to anchor the shelf into position. You can then re-install the door assembly.
