How hot does a gas fireplace surround get?
Herein, can a gas fireplace get too hot?
Excess Heat Can Damage The chimney can heat up to a point where it can crack. If your wood fireplace feels hotter than usual, lower the heat emission before damage occurs. Additionally, gas fireplaces that are too hot can cause some cracking in tiles in the fireplace and possibly in the hearth floor.
Similarly, what is code for fireplace surround? The National Fire Code dictates that any combustible material (e.g., wood mantel or similar trim) must be at least six inches from the firebox opening. An additional inch of clearance is needed for every 1/8 inch the combustible material or trim protrudes.
