Flames/Fire Effects

Can I put a fireplace screen in front?

Yes. Many people will put a traditional fireplace screen in front of our fireplace for a variety of reasons. First of all, it makes a modern electric fireplace look more realistic because an actual wood combustion fireplace would have a screen in front of it to prevent burning embers from going into your room. It’s also great for keeping small children and pets out of the fireplace which will add to the safety of the unit. It also helps to minimize the reflection you might see off of the glass at certain angles.

Overall, putting a fireplace screen in front of the fireplace will improve the look and keep the fireplace safe from small children who may get curious and play with the fireplace which a screen should discourage.
