electric Fireplace insert

I an building a TV console with a Electric Fireplace insert (Dimplex 23" DF12309 Electric Log insert).The console will be made of wood. I have 2 concerns: 1) can I use the insert in the console because the information said to use with existing fireplace. and 2) Do I have to use a differnt material and what material in the box where the insert will be?

Thanks for your help:)

Re: electric Fireplace insert

The specs say all parts get hot and that it is designed for an existing fire box. I would say the only safe solution would be a double wall fire box (like a heat-a-lator box.).
