Planning Information
Preplanning an installation is very important to ensure
safety and to save time and money. An installer must
predetermine where a fireplace will be set and how the
chimney system will be run.
Mounting The Fireplace
1. A flat combustible surface.
2. A raised wooden platform.
3. A concrete block or other solid object placed beneath each of the four (4) corners of the fireplace.
The fireplace must be spaced 1/2 inch from a combustible back wall and 1/2 inch from a combustible
side wall or support. (Fig. 20, Page 14)

Fig. 7 Installed lengths of chimney sections.
Determine how the chimney will be run, length of run
and chimney components required to complete the
job. (Fig. 6) Never install a chimney below minimum
heights.
In planning a chimney system, it is important to know:
1. The height of a chimney is measured from the
hearth to the exit point on the termination.
Major U.S. building codes specify a minimum chimney
height above the roof top. The “Ten Foot Rule” is a fire
safety rule and not a draft rule. To ensure proper draft,
it is recommended that you always meet or exceed the
“Ten Foot Rule,” especially when installing a termination on a high pitch roof. (Fig. 8)
The key points of the "Ten Foot Rule" are:
1. If the horizontal distance from the center of the
chimney to the peak of the roof is 10 feet or less,
the top of the chimney must be at least 2 feet above
the peak of the roof, but never less than 3 feet in
height above the highest point where it passes
through the roof.
2. If a horizontal distance from the center of the
chimney to the peak of the roof is more than 10 feet,
a chimney height reference point is established that
is on the surface of the roof a distance of 10 feet
from the center of the chimney in a horizontal plane.
The top of the chimney must be at least 2 feet
above the reference point, but never less than 3 feet
in height above the highest point where it passes
through the roof.

Chimney Supports
The chimney system is supported by the fireplace for
vertical chimney heights less than 30 feet above the
hearth. Chimney supports are required if the vertical
height exceeds 30 feet with SK8 chimneys or 20 feet
with 3-wall chimneys. Locate chimney supports at
ceiling holes or other structural framing at 30 foot
(SK8) or 20 foot (3-wall) heights. Spacing between
chimney supports must not exceed 30 feet(SK8) or 20
foot (3-wall). Use Chimney Support Model SKCS8.
(Note: the SKCS8 can not be mounted directly to
the fireplace.) Support provided by elbow straps
fulfills the support requirement only if they are spaced
as previously described. (A chimney support is 2¹⁄₂"
long when installed.)
Angled chimney runs require a support every six (6)
feet in addition to the elbow straps. Chimney supports
are used for this function. (Fig. 9)
Chase Installation
A chase is a vertical box-like structure which encloses
the fireplace and/or chimney. Chases are typically
built on the outside of the house with fireplace opening
cut into the outer wall of a room. (Fig. 5, Page 5)
If you need help in determining fireplace location or
how the chimney system should be run, contact your
Vermont Castings, Majestic Products dealer for
assistance.
Installation
■ 1. Insulating Fireplace Enclosure
For Cold Climates
If you live in a cold climate, it is not required but
highly recommended that you insulate fireplace enclosure to eliminate cold air penetration
as much as possible.
Insulate base of fireplace with a non-combustible insulation rated for a minimum of 300
degrees F. Insulating is very important for
outside wall installations over a concrete slab. If
fireplace is installed on a platform, insulation
should be placed on top of the platform before
fireplace is set. (Fig. 10)
When a fireplace is installed in a chase or on a
outside wall, enclosure should be treated like
any outside wall in a home. Insulation should be
installed on the inside wall as well as the
outside wall(s). In a chase, it is also a good idea
to install a firestop at the first ceiling level above
the fireplace and enclose the chase with
sheeting material. Insulation may then be
installed above sheeting material to assure the
space around the fireplace is totally protected.
(Fig. 5)
When installing the chimney, DO NOT caulk
between outer pipe and firestop. It is vital that
some air be allowed to flow through this very
thin gap.
CAUTION: WHEN INSTALLING A FIREPLACE IN AN INSULATED ENCLOSURE, BE
SURE ALL REQUIRED AIR SPACES ARE
MAINTAINED. (Fig. 20, Page 14)

■ 2. Framing
Option For Circulating Models Only —
Framing can be constructed before or after the fireplace is set in place, however, most installers build the
frame before setting the fireplace.
Frame fireplace with 2 X 4 lumber or heavier materials.
Refer to framing dimensions in Figures 1, 2, 3 or 4 for
basic fireplace specifications.
Note: Framing should be positioned to accommodate
wall covering and fireplace facing material.
■ 3. Installing Electrical Wire
(for Circulator Models)
If a circulating fireplace is to be installed, run the 120
VAC, 60 Hz wiring to the left side of installation.
Wiring must be completed before the fireplace is
secured and finish material applied.
Remove the cover plate and electrical knock-out on
the lower left side of the fireplace and set aside. Follow
the instructions on Page 10 for proper wiring and
installation of the EB1.
If the fan kit is not being installed with the fireplace, it
is highly recommended that 120 VAC supply be made
available since someone may elect to install a blower
at a later date.

• Turn off circuit breaker before wiring models.
Once fireplace is secured, complete wiring the fan
kit. Remove knockout in the center of the back of
the EB1 and install listed cable clamps. Feed
electrical wire through listed cable clamp leaving
approximately six (6) inches of wire exposed
through the EB1. Secure listed cable clamp to the
wire.
Attach white wire from power source to one (1)
wire of receptacle and secure with nut. Attach
black wire from power source to the other wire of
receptacle and secure with nut.Be sure nuts are
secured tightly.
Secure EB1 assembly to inside of electrical box
coverplate using two screws. Attach cover to face
of the EB1 while being careful to position excess
wire completely within the EB1, then attach
coverplate to fireplace.
Install Fan Kit Assembly
Refer to optional Model FK12 fan kit assembly
installation instructions for field installation.
■ 4. Chimney Set-up
Since you have already preplanned the chimney run,
you should know exactly how the installation is to be
accomplished — how much pipe is required, the
number of elbows, if any, and type of termination to
be used.
CAUTION: REPORT TO YOUR DEALERS ANY
PARTS DAMAGED IN SHIPMENT, SPECIFICALLY
CHECK THE END CONNECTION OF CHIMNEY
SECTIONS AND ELBOWS.
Note: Fireplaces may use Vermont Castings, Majestic Products model SK8, or Model S (three wall)
chimney systems. The SR/SC Series Fireplace will
accept the SK8 chimney system as is; but a TWABR
adapter collar is required when using the Model S
(triple wall) chimney system. The installation procedure described in this manual applies only to the
SK8 system. Either chimney system may be used,
but may not be mixed.

Majestic Fireplaces® SR/SC Series
Straight-Up Chimney Installation
To mark the centerline of the flue, put the fireplace in
final position and measure out from the wall: 9¹⁄₄
inches. Mark a spot on the ceiling directly above the
fireplace. Draw a line parallel to the back wall through
this mark. (Fig. 11)
Using a plumb bob positioned directly over center
point of fireplace flue collar, mark the ceiling to establish the chimney center point. (Fig. 11)
Offset Installation
In order to clear an obstruction, it may be necessary to
offset chimney from vertical. This is accomplished by
using Majestic elbows. Use the 30˚ Offset Elbow table
on Page 6 to determine proper offset and parts
required.
Each offset requires two (2) elbows. The second
elbow is equipped with support straps. It is very
important to install the second elbow in each offset as
close to the ceiling or support as possible so that the
elbow straps can be secured to framing members to
help support the weight of the chimney.
Determine offset distance of your chimney arrangement from centerline of fireplace to centerline of
chimney where it is to pass through ceiling.
Locate center point of the chimney on ceiling as
though a straight up chimney arrangement is to be
used. Measure your offset dimension from straight up
chimney center point on ceiling.
Ceiling Chimney Hole/
Possible Obstructions
The size of the hole in ceiling will vary with the angle at
which the chimney passes through ceiling.
CHIMNEY CENTERLINE
Drive a nail up through ceiling at marked chimney
center point. Go to floor above and see where hole
will be cut. Check to see where existing ceiling joists
and other possible obstructions are located...i.e.
wiring, plumbing etc... If necessary, re-position chimney and/or fireplace to avoid obstructions.

though a non-combustible hearth extension is required.
If fireplace is to be elevated above the floor, a “Z”
shaped metal safety strip must be fabricated and used
to protect combustible surfaces in front of the fireplace.
This “Z” shaped safety strip is not provided but must
be fabricated of metal with each horizontal leg at least
1¹⁄₂ inches wide and equal in length to the metals strips
provided with the fireplace.
An outside air kit is installed in all SR/SC Series
Fireplaces. If desired, or if local codes mandate the
use of an air kit, then an AK-MST is required to
complete the installation (from air kit to the outdoors).
If the outside air kit is to be used, the AK-MST MUST
be installed BEFORE the fireplace is enclosed. Refer
to the AK-MST instructions for field installation.
■ 6. Installing The Chimney System
Start by attaching the first chimney section to the collar
on top of the fireplace.
Install the pipe as pictured in Figure 16. When you
get a good lock, you will hear the pipe clearly snap
together. Once sections are snap-locked in place, it is
extremely difficult to get them apart. Make sure the
pipe is firmly snapped and locked together as each
pipe section is mounted.
When installing elbows, only outer pipe will snap- lock.
Middle pipes simply slide into position. Be sure to
always attach straps on upper elbow to a structural
framing member. (Fig. 17)
11
Majestic Fireplaces® SR/SC Series
Continue installing the pipe as required until pipe is
installed up through the ceiling. At this point, you must
install a firestop spacer.

Hole sizes listed in Figure 13 for angled firestop
spacers provide minimum required air space to chimney pipe for ceiling thickness up to eight (8) inches.
When combined thickness of ceiling material, ceiling
joists and flooring material exceeds eight (8) inches,
adjustments must be made in framing to assure that
minimum air spaces to chimney are maintained.

chimney. A chimney support is 2¹⁄₂" long when installed. Consider this dimension when determining
how many straight chimney sections are needed.
Note: Chimney supports are generally used in long
runs in a chase installation.
Additional Ceilings
If you encounter additional ceilings, repeat same steps
required for first ceiling installation. See firestop
illustration on Figure 18, Page 12.
Penetrating the Roof
Run pipe to roofline. Since chimney system must be
vented to the out-of-doors, you must use an approved
Vermont Castings, Majestic Products termination.
If a chase is used, refer to the installation manual
provided with the termination cap.

chimney top installation instructions are horizontal
dimensions; therefore, the hole size must be marked
on the roof accordingly.
Cover the opening of the installed chimney so debris
cannot get into the system.
Cut and frame the hole. It is good practice to use
framing lumber that is the same size as the rafters.
Install the frame securely because the chimney top
and flashing anchored to the frame must be able to
withstand heavy winds.
Install Remainder of Chimney Sections
Since you have already preplanned the height of your
termination according to the Ten Foot Rule, continue to
install pipe to the predetermined height.
Check the chimney top installation instructions for
details on how high above the roof top the chimney
sections (all pipes) should extend.
Cut and Frame Roof Hole
Size of roof hole varies with the type of chimney
termination installed. Refer to installation instructions
provided with Vermont Castings, Majestic Products
chimney termination to find correct size of roof hole.
There must be a 1¹⁄₂ inch air space between outermost
portion of chimney sections and any adjacent combustible surfaces. (Combustible surfaces include burnable
materials such as: ceiling members, joists, flooring,
combustible insulation and roof structures.)

local building codes for minimum clearance from top of
fireplace opening to bottom of mantel shelf.
All joints (top, bottom and sides) where wall or decorative facing material meets fireplace surround must be
completely sealed with a non-combustible material.
(Figs. 21 and 22)
Note: No side wall protection is required for fireplaces
installed at 45 degrees to two (2) side walls (corner

■ 9. Hearth Installation
A hearth extension is required to protect a combustible
floor in front of the fireplace. Refer to Figure 23 for
minimum dimensions and mounting detail.
Alternate noncombustible materials may be used
providing the (total) thermal resistance (Rt value) of
the alternate material employed is greater than or
equal to R = 1.09. Thermal resistance (R) or thermal
conductivity (K), may be obtained from manufacturer
of the material. Factors are related by the formula K =
1/R.
Note: Hearth Extension must not cover the air
inlet opening of a fireplace.
The hearth extension described in Figure 23 must be a
durable non-combustible material with a minimum
(total) Rt value of 1.09; see Figure 24 for examples.
The overall height (above a combustible floor), depth
and width must be as indicated, with the extension
centered to the fireplace opening.
T = given thickness
R = thermal resistance for a given thickness (T)
K = thermal conductivity
The top of insulation must be covered with a noncombustible decorative covering or a piece of .018”
minimum sheet metal, to protect hearth extension
material. (Fig. 23)
Noncombustible material with a lower R value may be
used, provided thickness of material is sufficiently
greater to maintain an equivalent (total) thermal
resistance (Rt).
Secure the hearth extension to the floor to prevent
shifting, using trim molding or other similar means at
three (3) outer edges. Seal crack between the fireplace hearth and hearth extension with a non-combustible material. (Figs. 23 and 25)
