This screen is a very low quality unit. I guess I should have known better, considering the price. One of the cross pieces fell off in the packaging as it was not welded properly. Be aware that the measurements reflect the actual size of the screen flat open. It is not the size of the firebox opening. So if you have a 36" opening, this will be too narrow when folded enough to stand, to cover the opening. It is a nice design, just not a very well built product.
This product is not worth purchasing. It is made from a very low quality metal and is very fragile. Please note that this tri-fold does not fit standard fireplaces as it the description states. Measure before you buy. If you get as a gift, be sure to save the receipt and return it within 90 days. I tried at 92 days, was denied a return, and am stuck with a piece of junk.
I have received so many compliments on this stove! It looks like quality, even though it's made of plastic. You can't tell that it's plastic unless you actually touch it. The flame is realistic and it gives off great heat.
The only assembly required is screwing on the legs, which takes less than 10 minutes.
I did a lot of research on electric wood stoves prior to buying this one and I am very happy with my purchase!
I purchased this stove about 2 yrs ago and I love it. I have a 900sq ft apt. This heats the entire place. Except for having guests last year, I have not used the ceiling heat in my apt because the stove does such a wonderful job. Depending on the weather, I turn it on about 2hrs before going to bed and my apt stays nice & toasty all night. I highly recommend this stove.
