CAUTION: THESE GLASS DOORS ARE
LISTED ONLY FOR USE WITH THE SUPERIOR FIREPLACE OR APPLIANCE MODELS
SHOWN. USE ON ANY OTHER FIREPLACE
OR APPLIANCE MAY CONSTITUTE A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD.
• Avoid building extremely large fires as the
tempered glass could become damaged.
CLEANING
NEVER CLEAN THE GLASS WHEN THE DOORS
ARE HOT. DO NOT USE AMMONIA OR ANY
AMMONIA BASED GLASS OR HOUSEHOLD
CLEANER TO CLEAN THE GLASS OR THE DOOR
FRAME. AN AMMONIA BASED CLEANER WILL
DAMAGE THE FINISH.
Remove dirt and grime from the doors using a
clean dampened towel followed by wiping with
a dry towel. To remove stubborn stains from
the doors, use a mild soap solution and towel to
gently scrub away stain. Take care not to scratch
the glass surface. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
IMPORTANT
• Use fireplace tools carefully to avoid striking
the glass.
Bottom

Channel
• Keep wire mesh screens closed during fireplace use.
• The fireplace flue damper must remain open
until fire is completely out.
Pivot
Point
• Assure wood and embers are well within the
confines of the grate area and well away from
the glass doors.
Figure 10
• Keep glass doors closed at night when retiring to minimize the loss of heated room air up
the vent.
CAUTION: THE CORNER FIREPLACE OR APPLIANCE SHOULD ONLY BE OPERATED WITH
THE BI-FOLD GLASS DOORS FULLY OPEN OR
FULLY CLOSED (FIGURE 12 ).
End Panel
Tempered glass will break into small particles if
it should shatter unexpectedly. If the glass
breaks, particles of extremely hot glass could
be discharged into the surrounding environment, thereby creating a risk of personal injury
or fire. Observation of the above operating
precautions and instructions will reduce the
risk of personal injury or fire.
Extreme temperature changes can cause breakage — do not build a hot fire and close the
doors if the doors are cold.
If the tempered glass pane becomes scratched
or chipped, it creates a weakness in the glass
which can cause the glass to break when heated.
Replace the pane of glass by contacting your
nearest LHP Distributor. For the name of your
nearest distributor contact:

ADJUSTMENT FOR DOOR ALIGNMENT
The doors are properly adjusted when the top
door trim is in a straight, level line and the gap
between the doors is even at the top and
bottom. If adjustments are required, grasp the
door handle and loosen the lower door hinge
pin using a 3/8" open end wrench*. Slide the
door panel on the hinge pin until the gap
between the upper door trim and upper frame
is even. Retighten the lower door hinge pin*.
Repeat this procedure for the opposite door if
needed.
These glass doors utilize tempered glass
which is designed for use with high temperatures but can unexpectedly shatter. DO NOT
SIT CLOSE TO THE GLASS.
