Ideally suited to contemporary stoves and fires, steel floor plates are designed to be very thin - 1mm in some cases. Steel floor plates can be simply laid ontop of a non-combustible hearth. To satisfy building regulations there needs to be a clear demarcation of the hearth area as well as being a non-combustible material beneath the stove. Steel floor plates are available in different shapes and sizes are available depending the size of your stove/fire and where you are looking to place it.
A steel floor plate is essentially designed to demarcate the heating area around a stove or fire to comply with building regulations. Ideally suited to contemporary stoves and fires, steel floor plates are designed to be very thin - 1mm in some cases.
If you have a stone or tiled floor down where you plan to place your stove then technically you already have a non-combustible material beneath the stove, thus negating the need for a full on construction hearth.
However, building regulations also state that a hearth should be a clear demarcation of the heating area around a fireplace, fire or stove and so simply placing on top of this would not conform. Instead a way around this would be to use a steel floor plate. At around 1-2mm thick these plates won't provide a trip hazard, offers a visual guide to the hearth area, and clearly denotes a visual demarcation of the fireplace, stove heating area in compliance with regulations. Note steel floor plates can only be used in conjunction with stoves that do not raise the hearth temperature above 100°C .
