We would like to insert this model into our existing brick gas burning fireplace. I want to cover all the brick with Sheetrock for a smooth and modern look. Is it going to be safe to have Sheetrock instead of a tile around the frame of the insert?

Our Answer:

Per the manufacturer, this unit is not rated to come in to direct contact with any combustible materials. This would rule out the use of any type of paper faced sheetrock. It would be necessary to use some sort of material, such as tile, stone, or concrete board to surround the unit.
