I have a wood burning stove and need a stove board. I also have a wood floor and I do not want to scratch it. Are there boards that have a soft backing that won't scratch the floor?

Our Answer:

While we do not offer a board that has a soft backing, there are several ways that the board can be modified to protect the floor. If a board is used that has an R value that meets or exceeds what the stove requires, you can add rubber or felt backing to the underside of the board, before laying it in position. If the board does not meet the required R value for the stove, you must use a noncombustible material beneath the board. One option is the SBI Micore-300 Mineral Fiber Board - Pack of Four. This material not only adds insulating value, but will also protect the floor from damage.
