Keep It Clear
These heating stoves reach extremely high temperatures while in using and during cool-down. Keep clothing, furniture, papers and other combustibles away.
Secure Safety Barrier
Ensure that a safety screen is securely in place when your solid fuel stove is in using to reduce the risk of potential burns. A protective safety screen is necessary to prevent skin from coming into contact with the hot glass, greatly reducing the risk of serious burns. The screen should not be removed or altered in any way.
Carefully supervise children during and after fireplace operation. The glass and metal surrounding your fireplace will reach extreme temperatures during operation and remain hot for a period of time after your product has been shut off. Always supervise and keep children a safe distance away to prevent accidental contact with the glass.
