I’m not sure if this is the proper forum for this but.
A friend of mine asked on another forum.
I’m in the process of designing a candle holder for my wife for Christmas (shhhhh) and am curious if there’s a rule of thumb regarding the distance of the candle flame to the wood? I’ve seen sconces and such and I haven’t heard of any issues with these. I’d like to make her something that can accommodate both tea lights and larger candles.
I contacted the local fire dept. They told me there is no code for candle clearance, just be very careful with open flames and perhaps try some testing on my own. I see alot of candle sconces with minimal clearance.
What say you about safe clearance for an open candle flame?
