Fireplace mat: protect valuable floors with the fireproof mat
Are you also looking for the right fireplace mat to protect valuable floors around the fireplace? With this article we want to provide you with important information and help in this regard.
Fireplace mat protects from sparks
A fireproof mat is a must when planning to install a fireplace in the living room.
A spark protection mat will protect valuable floors such as parquet, wood or carpet. In the case of tiles as a substrate, no additional protection is necessary. You can ensure protection from sparks and fire by taking structural measures before installing the fireplace. Alternatively, you can use a fireproof mat as a fireplace mat.
Possible measures before the fireplace installation
There are spark arrestor plates made of granite or with elegant sandblasting, slate, stone, made of special safety glass or metal. These are products made of powder-coated steel, brass or sheet metal. The colors are usually rather dark, such as black or gray. This refractory base comes in numerous shapes, such as round arch, semicircle, rectangle, circle, ellipse, segmental arch and more. The size depends on the size of the fireplace and is precisely specified by the fire regulations of each state. As a rule, the minimum dimensions of the firebox opening are 50 cm to the front and 30 cm each to the right and left.
This spark protection plate is attached before the fireplace is installed. This fireplace rug not only protects the floor from sparks, but also from the heat generated by the subfloor and the pressure load of the weight of the fireplace.
In the case of a spark protection plate, it is also recommended to apply a special seal to the floor, so that it is closed. This is handled similarly to a silicone seal in the kitchen and thus prevents dirt and dust from developing underneath the plate. This approach is especially useful with a glass top, as otherwise you may be able to see the dirt underneath the top.
