    Gives requirements for fireguards used with appliances incorporating an open fire, with combination grates, or a closed fire, including room heaters and stoves. Includes the construction and fitting for fireguards used with solid mineral fuel and wood burning appliances installed in a fireplace recess, at floor level, or on a superimposed hearth within 100 mm of floor-level. Can provide domestic cooking and water heating services as well as space heating by means of an open or closed fire. These fireguards are not intended to reduce the risk of fires caused by flying particles, although may give some protection from large particles.
