In 2015, new safety standards were implemented that stated all glass-fronted fireplaces must include a safety barrier that is not to exceed 174° F. Fireplace manufacturers, like European Home, responded with discrete mesh safety screens that instantly protected people from hot glass surfaces. Of course, innovation never sleeps, and the Glass Safety Barrier was invented soon thereafter. Instead of a screen mesh, the safety screen became a second pane of glass. This technique is especially effective for multiple-sided models and commercial installations as you can maintain the clean, glass on glass, corners that make these products truly unique.
Below we have picked out all of our glass-fronted, direct vent, fireplaces that feature the Glass Safety Barrier as an option.
