Why You Should Choose A Non-Combustible Mantel
Non-combustible mantels have recently grown in popularity. They are so popular because more and more people have begun to put televisions above their fireplace.
In fact, if a mantel is not installed above a fireplace, the television is very likely to melt due to too much heat from the fireplace.
By using a non-combustible mantel, these block heat better then just simple wooden mantels. However, we recommend not to have candles on the mantel.
So, what is a non-combustible mantel? These mantels are made of durable fiberglass reinforced concrete. Due to the non-combustible nature of this material, it can be used where many real wood mantels cannot. Due to this, they have a reduced clearance.
