On a late spring evening in Pennsylvania, our customer kept an eye on her Breeo® to be doubly sure the DeckProtect would be fully effective in protecting her new TimberTech® deck. The Breeo is the 24" Luxeve. The outside diameter of the Breeo including the feet is 33". By placing the feet just inside the corners, she could fit the Breeo on a 30" DeckProtect square. The question was whether the sides of the Breeo would radiate heat to the decking just outside the DeckProtect. So to be safe, she placed extra pieces of TimberTech® next to the sides of the DeckProtect. Capped composite decking can soften at temperatures as low as 176 degrees Fahrenheit. Her findings are quoted below. We don't know if the results would be different on a hot summer day, but do most folks really want to use a fire pit on hot day?
