    Just purchased the Napoleon npi40 for the house. Hearth is 16 inches..Npi40 requires six inches from front of door. so i need two more lousy inches to pass inspection. What to do? Hearth is flush with hardwood floor too. Can I get a extension or build a two inch extension. Napoleon specs r value= .40 for hearth

    With my stove it was 6" from the front of the stove "Measured from the glass", so you might want to double check that measurement starting from the surface of the door glass out.

    It may not be pretty, but you could get one of the approved stove mats.
    Friend of mine has his P38 sitting on one. I would think you can put it
    right in front of the stove to make up for the 6 inches. I think he bought
    it at Lowes or Home Depot.

    NPS40:
    The heater must be installed on a non-combustible fl oor protector extending the full depth of the heater and extending a
    minimum 6" in front and on either side (minimum .018" thick - 26 gauge).
    The fl oor protector must extend under and 2" beyond each side and rear of a "Tee" (if used).
    NPI40:
    In the case of the NPI40, the fl oor protector must have a R-value of 0.4 hr ft²°F with a minimum of 6 inches from the front.

    im so confused.
