Glass Hearth Plates Building Regulations-Superficial hearth – Heat Resisitant 12mm Thick Thoughened Glass Stove Floorplates
*Ensure that your chosen stove is suitable for installation onto a 12mm hearth and does not produce a temperature of 100 Degrees Celcius or above.
A typical constructional hearth needs to be 225mm total thickness including a concrete base and decorative top. With the introduction of the 100°C regulation a new definition of hearth was introduced, the superficial hearth. This maintains that stoves projecting a hearth temperature of less than 100°C can be placed onto a combustible floor with a non-combustible material between them with a minimum thickness of 12mm, effectively setting the stove free from the fireplace and allowing you to place it almost anywhere in a room provided it projects less than 100°C downwards, and a 12mm superficial hearth exists between the stove and a combustible floor.
If your stove is freestanding in a room and therefore NOT going into a recess under a chimney, AND the stove is independently certified not to heat the hearth underneath it to more than 100 degrees centigrade (many stoves available), then hearth regulations are very simple as no constructional hearth is required: allowing a minimum 12mm thick non-combustible superimposed hearth straight onto the floor.
In this case the hearth must be a minimum size: 840mm x 840mm. There must also be a minimum 150mm of hearth at each side and rear of the stove and a minimum 225mm in front of the stove door (best practice is 300mm and if the stove is designed to burn with doors open then 300mm is a MUST).
