Heat and fire may spark up in front of a fireplace or wood stove. With Stove Boards made by The HY-C Company, also known as a hearth extender, will help protect the floor from heat and sparks in front of your fireplace or wood stove. They are constructed of an embossed printed steel that is over 1/2" thick with a specially formulated fiber board that is non-combustible. HY-C also manufacturers a wall spacer installation kit that allows all UL-Lined Stove Boards to be used as wall shields. This Spacer Kit is UL1618 Type 2 tested and will provide 1" of airspace between the wall and the stove board and also reduces the clearance between the stove and the wall.
