What type of hearth do I need for my wood burning stove or fire?

What type of hearth do I need for my wood burning stove or fire?

Designed to protect the immediate area surrounding your solid fuel appliance, a hearth is made of a non-combustible material that sits underneath and around the stove. The hearth must be a sufficient size in order that any burning fuel or hot embers do not fall on any combustible materials such as floorboards, carpets or rugs etc. There are many factors to consider on the type of hearth that you need for your home.

Typically, the requirement for a 12mm hearth installation occurs when the room that you wish to install in has no available chimney or fireplace. Homes with a chimney normally have a constructional hearth built in.

Before you make any informed decisions on the type of heating appliance you may need for your home, please visit the heating centre for more information.
