A friend who just had a new Rais wood stove professionally installed used a piece of 3/8 inch tempered glass as a floor pad. It met all the right dimensions and only cost $69. She found what looked like a similar 1/2 inch piece from Moreso for $500, but went with the Home Depot one. Does 3/8 inch tempered glass meet Type 1 specifications? Do all stoves need at least .84 R value in the hearth pad? If this works, its a great cost saving option for folks who only need Type 1 pads.
