Fireplace and Stove Glass Safety
Children, like most of us, are fascinated by fire, and for families with young children,
fireplaces pose a potential safety hazard. Take the time to educate young children
about the dangers of fire and the hot surface temperatures of glass and metal surrounding
the fireplace. If you have an infant or toddler consider installing a fire screen;
make sure it’s tall enough so that children can’t climb over it, and that it’s placed
far enough away so that reaching arms can’t touch the surfaces of the fireplace.
A few precautions such as these will allow everyone in your home to safely enjoy
the comfort and warmth of your new gas fireplace.
