Floating cabinet mounted wood fireplace, is it possible?

3 months ago

Hi, just wanting opinions (preferably backed up with some experience) of whether it would be plausible to mount an enclosed wood burning fireplace onto a floating timber tv cabinet?
I’ve looked into it a bit and know that the section under the fire itself would have to be a non combustible material of appropriate thickness, in accordance with Solid Fuel Regulations. What I’m more interested in though is whether the timber studs the cabinet would be mounted to could support that much weight, as the fire we want is approximately 180kg, plus 10-20kg of wood, plus say 80-120kg for the cabinet itself.

I’ve put together a quick photoshop to better show what we’re hoping to achieve.
