There is nothing like the warmth of a fireplace to bring family and friends together.

Fireplace surfaces, in particular the glass viewing window, can reach temperatures of over 500°F at full capacity, and will remain hot for a short period of time after the fireplace is turned off. Contact with the hot glass can cause severe burns. Close adult supervision is required when there are young children, or at-risk individuals in the house.

A Valor Barrier Screen is recommended at all times and is included with all Valor fireplaces.
