Can I put my TV above a bioethanol fireplace?

We recommend leaving at least 45cm between the television and the fireplace if you’re installing a TV above a bioethanol fireplace. And while bioethanol fireplaces don’t get as hot as traditional wood or coal burners, they still give off plenty of heat, which could damage a TV if hung too close.

Closed-top bioethanol fireplaces

For the safest installation, choose a bioethanol fireplace with a closed top, such as our wall-mounted Marlow range, which adds a stylish, contemporary aesthetic to any room. Alternatively, select one of our wood-burner-style freestanding fireplaces, such as the Hampton or Malvern, for a more traditional finish to your living space. 

Keep wires and cables clear of your bioethanol fireplace

When finalising your TV installation project, keep all electrical wires and leads away from your bioethanol fireplace because the housing gets very hot, which could easily cause cords to overheat, creating a fire hazard. 

Bioethanol is smoke-free

Bioethanol fuel doesn't create smoke, ash, or soot when burnt. This means a bioethanol fireplace under a TV poses no smoke risk to your equipment.
