This Adjustable 4 in. Fireplace Hood comes with a secure surface mount to ensure the protection of your mantel and hearth trim and surround. This high quality fireplace hood protects your mantel and surround by insulating them against the great heat generated by fires, and can also be used with vent-free gas logs. This hood comes in nine attractive finishes: polished brass, antique brass, satin brass, polished chrome, satin chrome, and matte black.
How is the surface mount attached to the face of the fireplace?
It will be attached to the face of the unit with screws.
Will a 4-inch hood be sufficient to deflect heat from a mantle 2 inches thick and 8 inches above the face? The top of the mantle is about 18 inches above the fireplace and 6 inches wide so would 6 inches be necessary?
Although a 4" hood will work well, a 6" would deflect more.
How thick is the mettle used to make the hood, and is the surface mount hood attached to the face in more than two places?
The thickness is about 24-28 gauge depending on the maker, and yes the surface mount hood is attached in more than two places.
