Steel – Artisan Bronze

Steel – Artisan Bronze


The Ember Defender steel hearth pad is available in black, which is slightly textured and the same on both sides. The Ember Defender is also available with an Artisan finish, done by lightly grinding the steel and applying heat to one side. When complete, a clear powder coat is applied to both sides. The result is one side will have more of a Bronze/Blue color, and the other will have more of a Blue/Bronze color. No two will ever be the same.

We build our Ember Defenders with heavy gauge steel (10 gauge) to prevent bowing, a common issue, in addition to curling, that occurs with cheaper hearth pads. We also powder coat both sides. If your hearth pad does arrive with a scratch, it can be flipped over to what we hope will be a flawless finish.

Many customers move to this hearth pad, as it is easy to get along within your home. Since it is only 1/8" thick, it is not a trip hazard, especially for an installation that may require your hearth pad to extend into a natural walkway. This is also helpful if your home has family members in a wheelchair or using a walker.

This is a Type 1 (Ember Protection Only) product and will not work if your stove requires the hearth pad to provide thermal protection. Fortunately, more and more stove manufacturers are building products that require Ember Protection.
