My church recently purchased property to build a larger sanctuary. We
are seeking ways to make the lobby more inviting to people staying and
talking with each other. A fireplace seems to be a great way to
However, it occured to me that there can be some things that need to
be addressed in an enviroment with a lot of children. I suspect an
open fire would allow for a curious kid to throw stuff into it to see
how it burns. This may be OK on a wood fire, but not in a gas fire
using fake logs.
I imagine there are companies that specialize on fireplace for non-
home enviroments. Places like ski lodges. They should be familiar with
these kinds of issues.
Can anyone recommend such a company?
