    Question Fireplace screens

    Do most codes require wood burning fireplaces to have fireplace screens or glass doors?. I know that it is a good idea but would like to know if it is required by code.

    Default Re: Fireplace screens

    And what if screens were not required by applicable codes? You still wouldn't ignore their absence. It's one of those situations where I couldn't care less what the code says - missing screens are a safety issue and need to be installed.
