What is a setback or buffer that is referred to when seperating the firebox from the mantle?

Our Answer:

Fireboxes require a clearance from the edges of surrounding mantel legs and shelf. Clearances from the surrounding combustible material and how far the material can project from the wall will depend on how far back the firebox is set into the wall. Additional clearances must be observed when installing the unit into a cabinet mantel. It is common to require 3/4 to 1 inch of space for this type of installation.
