If you need help finding the correct type of glass for your stove or fireplace, please follow through the questions below or give us a call and our knowledgeable support team will help you.
1ST: DO YOU HAVE A FIREPLACE OR A WOOD STOVE?
If you know the answer to that question then move on down. If you're not sure then let's take a look at each one.
Most fireplaces have 2 or more doors on the front. As for wood stoves, they typically have just one door. Most wood stoves seal at the door with a fire-gasket, a fiberglass material that makes an air tight seal when the door is closed. There are wood stoves that have two doors also but they will have a rope gasket seal.
There are also fireplace inserts, which are similar to wood stoves that slide into a masonry fireplace. The idea of an insert is to make the old fireplace as efficient as possible while still providing a beautiful view of the fire. So, an air tight, efficient, firebox is slid into or "inserted" into your existing fireplace.
2ND: WHAT KIND OF GLASS IS CURRENTLY IN YOUR WOOD STOVE OR FIREPLACE?
We are going to assume that the original manufacturer glass is in the unit. When the original glass broke, did it break in a million little pieces or did it break in larger "chunks" of glass?
If the glass broke in a million pieces then it is tempered glass. Tempered glass is typically found in fireplaces, and should NEVER, EVER be used as wood stove replacement glass.
If the glass just cracked, or broke out in bigger chunks then it is known as a glass-ceramic. These products are commonly known as PyroCeram® (not Pyroceran), Robax or Neoceram - just different brand names for the same type of product. On this site we use the term PyroCeram®. The product we sell on this site, PyroCeram®, is made by Corning. The thickness of Pyroceram is 3/16", the most commonly used type of glass for Wood stove replacement glass. This glass also comes in a 1/8" thickness, but that is usually used in smaller space
