    When an insert says "approved for prefab"- other than being of a size that accommodates a prefab- what makes these inserts DIFFERENT from those that don't have the "approved for prefab" mark on them?


    They have been designed and tested so as to not place excess radiant heat on surfaces in or around the pre-fab units. Pre-fab fireplaces are installed into wood framing, which could ignite if the fireplace is used improperly or if an unapproved inseert or stove is installled.
