The following information has been provided by Regency Fireplace Products…
“Changes are coming as of January 1, 2015 for ALL hearth industry manufacturers to be required to provide a third party test laboratory approved safety barrier with all gas fireplaces/stoves/inserts. According to the standard, manufacturers can no longer manufacturer glass front fireplaces/stoves/inserts without the safety barrier as of December 31, 2014.”
View the video below for more information and to get a glimpse at what the protective screen is going to look like.
What this means for our customers… if you like the clean face glass – you MUST order one before December 31st, 2014 otherwise after that you will have to have the protective screen. This is affecting all fireplace manufacturers and all gas (and propane) models.
