Covering Your Fireplace During the Warmer Months

Covering your fireplace during the warmer months with a clear barrier is important when it comes to childproofing your home.  Little one’s love going up to the fireplace to inspect this “little cave,” and to see what they can find to put in their mouths.

Choking and poisonous debris

Fireplaces always have dust, bits and pieces of wood/charcoal and other debris, and Gas Fireplaces have stones and other fire toppings that are hazardous in terms of choking and may even be poisonous.

Sharp corners and edges, as well as protruding objects are a hazard.

Bees and Wasps

Often during months when the fireplace is not in use, bees and wasps like to make their hives and nests in the fireplace chimney/vent, so listen out for that buzzing sound before your little one gets hurt. Please get rid of the nest in a responsible manner by find a specialist remover in your area.

THE SOLUTION – refer to photos below:

Measure the area to cover and order a panel of clear Polycarbonate to fit snug.  For a temporary installation buy self-adhesive Velcro from your nearest haberdashery and mount to the fireplace. Buy enough Velcro to secure it properly right around.

IMPORTANT Disclaimer:  The clear Polycarbonate Panels are NOT FLAME RESISTANT and are only intended for use at times when the fireplace is NOT IN USE or for a fireplace that NEVER gets used.  Childproof Fire Screens (Seen at the start of this article) take up unnecessary space during warmer months, and this is why I came up with this solution.
