Masport Steel Floor Protectors are designed for free standing fires where minimum floor protection is required as per AS/NZS 2918:2001, in order to protect the floor from heat and any embers that may fall during fuelling operation. There are specific floor protectors for parallel and corner installation.


The location of wood fire and the floor protector/hearth must comply with local council and building regulations.

The steel floor protector along with wood fire should be installed in accordance with the minimum clearances to combustibles indicated in Masport specification sheet that comes with the wood fire pack.

Some councils in New Zealand require the wood fire and the floor protector to be secured to prevent shifting in the event of an earthquake. Installer will have to drill suitable holes, at an appropriated location on the floor protector.

Guidelines for installation

Prepare the flat surface where the floor protector will be positioned. Masport steel protectors can be used directly on wooden or carpet floors.

Overall sizes of all the Masport floor protectors are slightly bigger than the minimum required. This gives some flexibility in positioning of the fire on to the floor protector.

Use thick rags, a protective blanket or suitable protective material to avoid scratches on the powder coated surface whilst moving the wood fire into correct position and marking the seismic restraint holes.

Please note that the distances given in this table are for guidance only, assuming the floor protector is flush with the rear or side combustible walls. Ensure the Masport Double Flue Heat Shield is used where required as per specification sheet.

Before drilling the seismic restraint holes, make sure that the rear clearance, side clearance and front clearance from glass is maintained as per Masport specification sheet.
