Fireplace Safety

The dedicated professionals at Valor Fireplaces are united in their commitment to safety.

There is nothing like a warm fireplace to bring family and friends together.

Fireplace Surfaces, in particular the glass viewing window, are extremely hot during operation (over 500°F at full capacity) and will remain hot for a period of time after the fireplace is turned off. Contact with the hot glass can cause severe burns. Close adult supervision is required if there are young children, or at-risk individuals in the house.

Included with the purchase of any Valor fireplace, a Valor Barrier Screen is recommended at all times.
