from NY asked:
December 18, 2016
I purchased a fire resistant rug. Are there any other concerns about health issues or toxic chemicals?
Our rugs are flame resistant by virtue of their construction and the material used to weave them (wool, olefin, etc). There are no chemical flame retardants used on our rugs.
on December 19, 2016
There are currently no known issues related to hearth rugs as they are simply meant to protect combustible surfaces underneath from coals and embers.

I have a Pleasant Hearth LP stove sitting on laminate wood flooring. Could I use this to sit the stove on, since the manufacturer said it has to sit on something non-flammable? Or, do you carry something else that would work? Thank you.
While these rugs could not be used, as they are only fire-resistant, laminate flooring is typically acceptable to use under a gas stove. I would contact the manufacturer for details.

Our fireplace curves out, so the hearth rug needs to be scooped (like a big U) against the brick hearth. Picture a quarter-moon turned so the rounded side sits on the floor and the curved side hugs the brick hearth. We need a hearth rug that fits. Please advise.
Unfortunately, we do not carry a rug in this style. We apologize for any inconvenience.

from St. Marys, GA asked:
October 20, 2016
Would these rugs be suitable to place under a metal fire pit on a wooden deck? The pit sits on metal legs that will be elevated on 6" patio pavers and the portion holding the logs/embers will clear the deck by about a foot and a half. We just want to ensure the integrity of our newly constructed deck by taking a precaution against stray embers/sparks.
Unfortunately, we do not carry a rug that would be suitable for sitting under a firepit.

from Clayton, DE asked:
October 7, 2016
I am looking for a fireproof hearth rug, 18 inches by 36 inches. Which is ideal?
Please note that our hearth rugs are fire resistant, not fireproof. If a hot ember falls onto one of these rugs, the rug will not burn, but the rug will be damaged by the ember itself, while also protecting the surface below. I am unable to find a rug in an exact 18" x 36."

from Armonk, NY asked:
June 14, 2016
Are all Hearth Rugs by definition non-combustible? Is there a certain material that I should be looking for? Wool?
Hearth rugs will not be considered noncombustible, but most all of the rugs we offer will be considered flame retardant and will prevent an ember from damaging the floor underneath as this is their design. If you are looking for the best material to look for while searching for a hearth rug, I would strongly consider Olefin as this will provide the best appearance and protection of your floor.
from Old Saybrook, CT asked:
April 11, 2016
Do any rugs protect against sparks from fireplaces?
The hearth rugs that we carry are designed to protect a combustible floor from sparks by sacrificing themselves when contact with a large spark or ember is made. The Olefin and fiberglass rugs are by far the most durable we offer.
on April 12, 2016
from Belfast, ME asked:
January 12, 2016
Will a fire resistant hearth rug protect the floor from excessive heat?
Only Type 2 Hearth Boards & Stove Boards
will provide thermal protection. If you have product literature calling for type 2 protection for both thermal and ember protection, a rug will not be sufficient.

from Cincinnati, OH asked:
December 30, 2015
What is the most flame resistant hearth rug that you sell?
Just about all of the hearth rugs we carry meet FF1-70 Surface Flammability Test requirements, but any of the rugs which are listed as "Guardian" are made from fiberglass making them extremely flame resistant.
on December 31, 2015
from Barrie, ONT asked:
December 28, 2015
Are there hearth rugs that are heat resistant or fire retardant?
The rugs are fire retardant. If an ember lands upon a rug comprised of anything other than wool, it will essentially melt the fibers causing a hard black spot on the rug, but the rug will not burn. The wool rugs will also not burn, but when wool fibers come into contact with an ember, they will not leave a black spot or mark. The fibers will simply turn to ash, but there will be a spot left in the tuft of the rug where the fibers will be shorter than the rest.
If your installation is calling for something heat resistant, you may be in need of a Hearth or Stove Board.

from PA asked:
November 16, 2015
I am looking for a flame resistant rug to place in front of our fireplace. Doesn't the material Olefin found in your heart rugs melt? Would that harm the floor underneath them?
Olefin will act as a sacrificial fiber in the event of contact with a hot ember, however the breakdown of the fiber forms a hard spot that prevents further damage. The backer on the rug is also very flame retardant, preventing burn through.

from WA asked:
July 20, 2015
I'm looking for a fireproof 1/2 round rug to place beside my hearth. What would you recommend?
from Paradise, CA asked:
May 1, 2015
Since these rugs will be put on top of a carpet, shouldn't I use a non-skid pad? I don't want the hearth rug to move around on top of the carpet.
The non-skid pad will indeed keep the rug from moving around on your carpet.

from Sperry, OK asked:
March 2, 2015
Do you know of a flame retardant mat that can be placed on the hearth to catch sparks and small embers that fly out between the screen? I am not looking for a hearth rug in particular.
While not explicitly produced for that purpose, we do carry several sizes of protective grill mats that may be used in such an application. Another option would be a black stove board such as the Hy-C 36-inch x 36-inch Type 2 UL1618 Black Stove Board

I am looking for a hearth rug that I can trim to fit my round front stone hearth. It will be there to protect the carpet in front of the stone hearth. The stone is the color of cement and the carpet is tan. Hearth is 4 feet wide. What would you suggest?
from Westminster, CO asked:
October 27, 2014
The house that I am buying has no hearth at all but it does have a wood fireplace insert with a screen. There's some tile around the wall but the floor below is new, laminate flooring. Do you have a rug that you would recommend? I'm concerned that if an ember flies out onto the rug, it'll burn a hole into it. What would you suggest?
The hearth rugs are handy to guard against the occasional stray ember or spark, but you will likely want to go with a more permanent solution to protect the floor. I recommend constructing a tile hearth extension, using cement board as a backer and a ceramic tile of your choosing.

from Erie, PA asked:
August 27, 2014
My insurance company is requiring a "UL tested" fire retardant mat in front of my fireplace insert. How do I know if what I'm buying is UL approved?
While many of the rugs we carry meet CPSC FF 1-70 flammability tests, they are not UL Listed. The average cost of an accessory hearth rug simply does not outweigh the high cost of having the product tested by a listing agency, so most manufacturers will not submit the product for review. Typically, hearth extenders are UL listed and carry an R value, but they are usually only used in conjunction with a wood stove.
on August 27, 2014
from NE asked:
August 17, 2014
Are these hearth rugs fireproof?
These rugs are indeed fire retardant. If an ember lands upon a rug comprised of anything other than wool, it will essentially melt the fibers causing a hard black spot on the rug, but the rug will not burn. The wool rugs will also not burn, but when wool fibers come into contact with an ember, they will not leave a black spot or mark. The fibers will simply turn to ash, but there will be a spot left in the tuft of the rug where the fibers will be shorter than the rest.

from Vancouver asked:
January 27, 2014
I need a fireproof hearth rug, preferably the most fireproof you offer. Which type is best or has the highest "anti-fire" rating?
By far, Olefin is the most flame resistant and durable product we offer for hearth rugs. By searching our site using the term "Olefin", you will find a list of products that are made out of this naturally fire resistant fiber.

I am needing a rug to go in front of an outdoor fireplace that is on a deck. I need it to be fire resistant but also water proof. Do you have any that are both?
from Altoona, PA asked:
November 20, 2013
I'm trying to locate a fire resistant rug for the front of a hearth. I would like to find one that also has some insulated properties as the pergo floor gets fairly warm under the current hearth rug we are using. Approximate size would be 2-3 feet by 4-5 feet and square. We have a prefabricated hearth that has angled corners in the front. So finding a rug of that shape is impossible. So we're opting for rectangular. Can you help?
from New York asked:
November 8, 2013
What does fire retardant hearth rugs mean? Does it melt if a log drops on it? What fibers would not be damaged if a hot log fell on it or sparks fell on it?
By the disclaimer, "fire retardant" this rug will comply to fire standards that dictate the rugs fibers will not smolder for more than 3 inches in any direction where contact with a burning coal or log is made. As such, it is a definite that the rug will be damaged if a hot enough coal or log is dropped upon the rug, but the rug is designed to prevent damage to the surface beneath it.

from Evansville, IN asked:
October 17, 2013
What happens to these hearth rugs when an ember pops out onto them? Are they fire proof, resistant, or just retardant?
The results will vary, based on the exact material of rug that is used. Olefin is by far the most resistant to embers, but all the rugs are labeled as fire "resistant". The rugs are designed to smolder, rather than burn through completely.
