Our Commitment to Safety

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.

Tips for Safe Operation

  • Always read and follow the instructions for the safe use and maintenance of your Astria Fireplace.
  • Surfaces on fireplaces, stoves and inserts get EXTREMELY HOT!
  • The glass on the front of a fireplace reaches EXTREMELY HIGH temperatures and can cause severe burns if touched.
  • Surfaces around the fire—especially glass doors or panels—can stay very hot for long periods of time after operation has ended. Be aware that surfaces may stay warm from a lit pilot light, even if the product is not operating.
  • Never leave young children or pets alone when operating a Astria Fireplace.
  • Educate your family about fire safety before you begin operating a new Astria Fireplace.
  • Use a firescreen (if applicable) for added safety.
  • Always keep a hearth product remote away from small children.

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.
