Default flooring over concrete and under a woodburning stove

We are thinking of installing this product in our cabin in Canada. How will it handle cold winters?.... This will be placed over a concrete slab in a log cabin. It's purpose is for an entryway and under a woodburning stove. Would any insulation be needed under the tiles? Would a burning stove be safe on it?

Thank you! Julie

Avaire is designed for use in typical residential applications where the temperature is maintained between 32F and 110F. While the individual system components are not damaged by exposure to temperatures outside this range, we have not fully tested the system-level implications of multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

Regarding a wood stove, some stoves would control/limit exposure at the floor to temps below 110F, others would not. There are 100's (1000's?) of stoves on the market, and we don't have specific knowledge of individual stove characteristics. As long as the stove would not cause the tile to reach prolonged temperatures above 110F, Avaire will perform well, and the application will be safe.
