- 3rd - What kind of heat does your unit put out? Is it a gas unit, using natural gas or propane? A wood burner that is just for looks? Or an air tight wood burner that produces over 600 degrees?
If it is a gas unit, then it typically uses tempered glass. Although gas units do put out heat, the top end of the heat against the glass is less then 400 degrees. The tempered glass in these units is usually of a clear tint.
If you have a masonry fireplace, a fireplace built in the home with brick and mortar, they can have a set of fireplace doors applied to the opening. These types of fireplaces are not very efficient and do not generate heat much higher than 400 degrees, at least not for any extended period of time. The glass in these types of door systems are typically tempered.
If you have an air tight wood stove or insert. These units can generate up to 1200 degrees and are very efficient. The glass in these units must be Pyroceram. Using any other type of glass will cause the glass to fail and could cause a home fire. Pyroceram glass has an amber tint in color.
If you have a high efficiency fireplace. This is a fire place that is not air tight, but has an adjustable damper that allows you to control and slow down the fire to burn more efficiently and generate more heat. These units generally supply heat in the 600-1000 degree temperature range and need to use Pyroceram glass.
-Lastly- If your not sure about any of the above, there are still a couple of ways to find out. Look in your owners manual. It should tell you what type of glass was supplied.
Contact the company that you got the fireplace or wood stove from. They should be aware of the different types glass and can advise you. Or just sent us an
Email and give us as much information as you can. Brand name, size, wood or gas, and take a picture and attach it. We have seen most of the types out there and should be able to tell you what you need.
Still not sure? Then replace it with Pyroceram. This will cover all the bases. It is able to be used in all the applications that we have covered. Order Here. Hopefully this answers your question "where can I find wood stove glass", or "where can I find fireplace glass".
