Clearances and Cavity Measurements


Clearance from Combustible Materials: Mantels should maintain a safe distance from combustible materials. This often includes a minimum clearance from the top and sides of the fireplace opening and surrounding walls.

Clearance from Firebox: The mantel should be positioned at a safe distance above the firebox to prevent overheating.

Floor Clearance: Consider the distance from the bottom of the mantel to the floor, ensuring it complies with safety standards.

Overhead Clearance: If the mantel is installed below a combustible surface (e.g., a wooden beam), ensure sufficient clearance to prevent heat transfer.

Cavity Measurements:

Fireplace Opening Size: Measure the width and height of the fireplace opening accurately to ensure the mantel fits properly.

Depth of the Cavity: Measure the depth of the cavity or alcove where the mantel will be installed. This is important for mantels that sit within a recessed area.

Surrounding Wall Dimensions: Consider the dimensions of the surrounding walls to ensure the mantel complements the space without being too large or small.

Ceiling Height: Measure the height from the floor to the ceiling to ensure the mantel is proportionate to the room.
