Steel Protector Plate on mantel?
My mendota DXV35 requires 14" of noncombustible material above the blower for a combustible mantel, UNLESS there is a steel protector plate on the underside of the mantel. I can't find anything about a steel protector plate on the internet, nor did a salesman at Courtland Hearth.
Does anyone know anything about steel protector plates for the underside of a mantel? Where would I purchase one?? Could I create something to be a makeshift mantel protector? Thanks for your help in advance!
