Astria products are constructed with the utmost care and precision and designs comply with national safety standards. However, personal safety begins with good fire management.
The temperatures of surfaces in and around a fire can become extremely hot during operation. It is essential to monitor traffic around a Astria Fireplace to prevent burns and to protect the overall safety of your home and loved ones.
The Astria Fireplace Safety Guards provide some benefit relative to reducing the severity of a burn or injury against severe burns and injuries by preventing direct contact with the front glass surface of your gas fireplace through the use of a formed mesh screen that stands off from the unit. It is easy to install and is removable. This screen is not decorative but rather a safety device that should be used when children or other at risk populations will be near the fireplace. However, it is not a substitute for following all safety guidelines included in the care and operation manual accompanying your fireplace. Note: Safety Guards may not be available for some older models, which are no longer in production.
Remember, safety is a responsibility with any fire-associated product. Consult your Astria Fireplace dealer for more information and read and understand the information in the Homeowner's Care and Operation Manual that accompanies each appliance. Refer to these tips regularly and review with those in your home to assure careful operation and long-lasting comfort.
