Fireplace and Stove Glass Safety

Each year, millions of people enjoy the warmth, comfort and ambiance of their hearth products during the heating season. Caution should be taken, however, when operating fireplaces and stoves, for the glass panels and other surfaces can become extremely hot due to the high efficiency of the products.

The temperature of a glass panel in particular can increase within a few minutes of ignition of the appliance and can remain hot long after the product is turned off. Touching the fireplace or stove glass can lead to significant burn injuries.

CAUTION NEEDS TO BE USED AROUND ALL HEATING APPLIANCES (SPACE HEATERS, WOOD AND PELLET FIRED PRODUCTS) AS THEY CAN CAUSE BURNS WHEN TOUCHED DURING OR AFTER OPERATION.
