UK Building Regulations set out strict safety requirements for hearths for solid fuel stoves. Most woodburners require a full 5" hearth (including sub-base and raised decorative hearth), as the high levels of heat below the stove could easily become a fire hazard without adequate insulation from flammable materials such as wooden joists. However many manufacturers now produce stoves which produce less than 100°c heat at the hearth, allowing for installation onto a 12mm hearth without needing a sub-base. Our selection of 12mm glass floor plates has been specially developed for use with wood burning stoves, and are ideal for creating a modern look.
