2. Locating Fireplace & Chimney
Location of the fireplace and chimney will affect performance.
• Install within the warm airspace enclosed by the building
envelope. This helps to produce more draft, especially
during lighting and die-down of the fire.
• Penetrate the highest part of the roof. This minimizes
the effects of wind loading.
• Locate termination cap away from trees, adjacent
structures, uneven roof lines and other obstructions.
• Minimize the use of chimney offsets.
• Consider the fireplace location relative to floor and ceiling
and attic joists.
• Take into consideration the termination requirements in
Sections 5 and 6.
Recommended Location:
• Above peak
• Install the outside air kit with the intake facing prevailing
winds during the heating season.
• Ensure adequate outdoor air for all combustion
appliances and exhaust equipment.
• Ensure furnace and air conditioning return vents are not
located in the immediate vicinity of the fireplace.
• Avoid installing the fireplace near doors, walkways or
small isolated spaces.
• Recessed lighting should be a “sealed can” design.
• Attic hatches weather stripped or sealed.
• Attic mounted duct work and air handler joints and seams
taped or sealed.
Recommended Location:
• Above peak
• Inside heated space
Marginal Location:
• Below peak
Marginal Location:
• Wind loading possible
Location NOT recommended:
• Not the highest point of the roof
• Wind loading possible
Recommended:
• Insulated exterior chase
in cooler climates
Location NOT recommended:
• Too close to tree
• Below adjacent structure
• Lower roof line
• Avoid outside wall

C.Construct the Chase
Round Termination Cap
A chase is a vertical boxlike structure built to enclose the
fireplace and/or its vent system. Vertical chimneys that
run on the outside of a building must be installed inside a
chase.
Storm Collar
Metal Chase Top
Ceiling
Firestop
In cold climates, Hearth & Home Technologies recommends that the chase be well insulated using batt type
insulation between the joists.
Construction of the chase may vary with the type of building. These instructions are not substitutes for the requirements of local building codes. Local building codes MUST
be checked.
False Ceiling
Chases should be constructed in the manner of all outside
walls of the home to prevent cold air drafting problems.
The chase should not break the outside building envelope
in any manner. All outer walls need to be insulated.
Tabs
Holes and other openings should be caulked with high
temperature caulk or stuffed with unfaced fiber glass
insulation.
Warning! You must install false ceilings and ceiling firestops at each floor of the chase or every 10 ft
(3.05 m) to control spread of fire.
Warning! Risk of Fire! Do not seal area between fire
stop opening and chimney pipe except where they enter
the attic or leave the warm air envelope of the home (use
600° F sealant).
• The chase is constructed using framing materials much
the same as the walls in your home. A variety of siding
materials may be used including brick, stone, veneer
brick, or standard siding materials.
• In constructing the chase, several factors must be
considered:
- Maintain a 2 in. (51 mm) air space around the
chimney.
- The chase top must be constructed of noncombustible material.
- In cold climates, a firestop spacer and attic insulation
shield should be installed in an insulated false ceiling
at the 8 ft. (2438 mm) level above the fireplace
assembly. This reduces heat loss through the chase.
- In cold climates, the walls of the chase should be
insulated to the level of the false ceiling as shown in
Figure 3.4. This will help reduce heat loss from the
home around the fireplace.

outside walls
of the chase
Ceiling
Firestop
Insulation
Building codes require false ceiling and ceiling firestops/
attic shields at each floor of the chase or every 10 ft (3048
mm) of clear space to control spread of fire.
Walls, ceiling, base plate and cantilever floor at the first
level of the chase should be insulated (see Figure 3.4.)
Vapor and air infiltration barriers should be installed in the
chase as per regional codes for the rest of the home. Additionally, Hearth & Home Technologies recommends that
the inside surfaces be drywalled and taped (or the use of
an equivalent method) for maximum air tightness.

Warning! Risk of Fire! You must maintain a minimum
2 in. (51 mm) air space clearance to insulation and other
materials surrounding the chimney system.
• Insulation and other materials must be firmly secured to
prevent accidental contact with chimney system.
• The chase must be properly blocked to prevent blown
insulation or other combustibles from entering and
making contact with fireplace or chimney.
• Failure to prevent contact between insulation or other
materials and chimney system may cause overheating
and fire.
Three examples of chase applications are shown in Figure 3.5.
1. Fireplace and chimney enclosed in an exterior chase.
2. Chimney offset through exterior wall and enclosed in chase.
3. Chase constructed on roof.
All outside walls should be insulated.

D.Frame the Fireplace
Notice: Hearth extension design must be determined
before installation of fireplace.
If the fireplace is placed on the floor the maximum height
of a finished raised hearth is 5-3/4”, if you want a higher
raised hearth the fireplace must be placed on a platform.
NOTICE: Wiring for fans must be done before framed
enclosure is completed. If using a Heat Zone Kit, it
also must be installed before enclosure is complete.
The 7100FP Fireplace will fit a framed opening height of
46-1/4 in. (1174 mm) tall and 42-1/4 in. (1073 mm) wide.
WARNING! Risk of Fire! Comply with all minimum clearances specified.
• A minimum 1/2 in. (13 mm) air clearance must be
maintained at the back and 1 in. (25 mm) to the sides
of the fireplace assembly.
• Chimney sections at any level require a 2 in. (51 mm)
minimum air space clearance between the framing and
chimney section.
► E. Secure and Level the Fireplace
This fireplace may be placed on either a combustible or
noncombustible continuous flat surface. Follow the instructions for framing in Section 3. Slide the fireplace into
position. Be sure to provide the minimum 1 in. air clearance at the sides and 1/2 in. at the back of the fireplace.
The fireplace should be positioned so the face of the noncombustible material on the fireplace will be flush with the
face of the drywall on the walls. See Figure 3.6.
Level the fireplace and shim as necessary. Secure the
fireplace (using the pallet mounting brackets located on
either side of the fireplace) to the subfloor.
Warning! Risk of Fire! Prevent contact with sagging,
loose insulation.
• DO NOT install against vapor barriers or exposed
insulation.
• Secure insulation and vapor barriers.
• Provide minimum air space clearances at the sides and
back of the fireplace assembly as outlined in Section 3.
Warning! Risk of Fire! You must comply with all
minimum air space clearances to combustibles. Do NOT
pack required air spaces with insulation or other materials.
Figure 3.3 shows a typical framing (using 2 x 4 lumber)
of the fireplace, assuming combustible materials are
used. All required clearances to combustibles around the
fireplace must be adhered to. See Figure 3.2. Any framing
across the top of the fireplace must be above the level of
the top standoffs. (No recess above standoffs.)
The finished cavity depth must be no less than 24 in.
(610 mm) from the finished backwall to the outside of front
wall framing. Framing must extend straight up all the way

H.Outside Air Kit
An outside air kit must be used for combustion. Hearth &
Home Technologies recommends you utilize the shortest
duct run to optimize the performance of the outside air
kit. The outside air inlet hood should be positioned in a
manner that will not allow snow, leaves, etc. to block the
inlet. In some installations the air duct may need to be run
vertically. In such an installation, a 3 ft (914 mm) height
difference must be maintained from the top of the uppermost chimney section to the outside air inlet hood.
Refer to Figures 3.10 and 3.11 when placing the outside
air inlet hood.
The outside air kit is installed on the right hand side of the
fireplace. See Figure 3.12 for handle location/operation.
• Cut a 6 in. (152 mm) hole in outside wall to accommodate
air piping.
• Use 6 in. (152 mm) metal flex or rigid piping (not supplied)
to directly connect outside air to fireplace intake. Insulate
the pipe to prevent frost condensation.
• Use the supplied outside air inlet hood.
• Seal between the wall and the pipe with silicone to
prevent moisture penetration and air leaks.
• Seal between the outside air inlet hood and the house
with silicone to prevent air infiltration.
Caution! Risk of Fire or Asphyxiation! Do not draw
outside combustion air from wall, floor or ceiling cavity, or
enclosed spaces such as an attic or garage.
• Do not place outside air inlet hood close to exhaust
vents or chimneys. Fumes or odor could be drawn into
the room through the fireplace.
• Locate outside air inlet hood to prevent blockage from
leaves, snow/ice, or other debris. Blockages could cause
combustion air starvation.
Caution! Risk of Cuts/Abrasions. Wear protective
gloves and safety glasses during installation. Sheet metal
edges are sharp.

B.Offsets/Returns
• Use an offset/return to bypass overhead obstructions.
• An offset and return can be used as a single entity or separated by chimney section(s).
Warning! Risk of Fire! Do not use offset/returns greater than 30°. Chimney draft will be restricted and could cause
overheating and fire. Secure offsets with screws ( not to exceed 1/2” / 13 mm in length) Secure returns with strapping.
Straight chimney sections may be secured with screws. Keep chimney sections from separating or twisting.
• Measure the shift needed to avoid the overhead obstruction. Refer to dimension A in Figure 5.2.
• Find the appropriate A dimension listed in Table 5.3. The B dimension coinciding with the A dimension measurement in
Table 5.3 represents the required vertical clearance needed to complete the offset/return.
• Read across the chart to find the number of chimney sections/model numbers needed between the offset and return.
Example:
A
Your “A” dimension from Figure 5.2 is 14-1/2 in. (368
mm). Using Table 5.3 the dimension closest to, but not
less than 14-1/2 in. (368 mm) is 14-1/2 in. (368 mm) using a 30° offset/return.
B
Figure 5.2 Chimney Offset/Return
You determine from the table that you need 34-1/8 in.
(867 mm) (Dimension “B”) between the offset and return.

B.Assemble Chimney Sections
Use only those components described in this manual.
Substitute or damaged chimney components could impair
safe operation and cause overheating and fire.
Attach either a straight chimney section or an offset to
the top of the fireplace (depending on your installation
requirement). Chimney sections are locked together by
pushing downward until the top section meets the stop
bead on the lower section.
The inner flue is placed to the inside of the flue section
below it. The outer casing is placed outside the outer casing of the chimney section below it. See Figure 6.2.
Notice: Chimney sections cannot be disassembled once
locked together. Plan ahead!
• Lock chimney sections and/or offsets/returns together by
pushing downward until the top section meets the stop
bead on the lower section.
• Pull on the top section to make sure it is fully engaged
and will not separate.
• You may use #6 or #8 sheet metal screws no longer than
1/2 in. (13 mm) to fasten chimney sections together. Do
NOT penetrate inner flue.
Warning! Risk of Fire! You MUST use screws (provided) to fasten offset/returns to chimney sections to
keep the chimney parts from twisting. Failure to do so
could cause fire.
• Fasten offset/returns to chimney sections. Insert the
screws (provided) through the predrilled holes. Do NOT
penetrate inner flue.
• Secure chimney returns with hanger straps provided;
fasten to studs or joists.
• Vertical straight runs of chimney must be supported every
35 ft (10.7 m).
C.Install Chimney Air kit (CAK4A)
NOTICE: Chimney Air Kit, Part CAK4A is required when
using the SL-300 Pipe Series. Detailed instructions are
supplied with the kit. If using the Dura-Plus System (must
be 8 in./203 mm in diameter), the starter ring that came
with the fireplace must be removed and replaced with the
Dura-Plus Base Plate. The CAK4A is not required with a
Dura-Plus System.
• Install the chimney pipe first.
• Hand bend the tabs in position before placing on the
fireplace.
• Place the box on top of the fireplace around the chimney
pipe, push both pieces together and secure with screws
provided.
• Use the pre-punched holes in the tabs as guides and
drill holes through the fireplace top.
• Secure the CAK4A in place. See Figure 6.3.
• Seal around the kit at the flue and at the top of the can
with caulk. See Figure 6.3.

D.Secure Offset/Return
When offsets and returns are joined to straight pipe sections, they must be locked into position with the screws
provided* (outer only), using the predrilled holes. To prevent gravity from pulling the chimney sections apart, the
returns and the chimney stabilizers have hanger straps for
securing these parts to joists or rafters. See Figure 6.5.
* Use # 6 or # 8 sheet metal screw, or larger, no longer
than 1/2 in. (13 mm).

E. Install Ceiling Firestops
Caution! Risk of Fire! Ceiling firestops must be used
whenever the chimney penetrates a ceiling/floor.
Warning! Risk of Fire! Do NOT seal area between
firestop opening and chimney pipe except where they enter the attic or leave the warm air envelope of the home
(use 600° F sealant).
• Chase construction requires ceiling firestops at each
floor or every 10 ft. (3.05 m) of clear space.
• The ceiling firestop slows spread of fire and reduces
cold air infiltration.
• Install a ceiling firestop whenever chimney penetrates
ceiling/floor.
• Mark and cut an opening in ceiling as shown in Figure 6.6.
• Frame the opening with the same size lumber used in
the ceiling joists.
• Nail the ceiling firestop to the bottom of the ceiling joists
when there is a room above.
• Use an attic insulation shield if the ceiling is insulated.
The ceiling firestop may then be attached above or below
the joists.

F. Install Attic Insulation Shield
Warning! Risk of Fire! You MUST install an attic insulation shield when there is any possibility of insulation or
other combustible material coming into contact with the
chimney.
Insert three
screws
• Do NOT pack insulation between the chimney and the
attic insulation shield.
• Failure to keep insulation and other materials away from
chimney pipe could cause fire.
• Do NOT offset chimney inside insulation shield.
Tabs bent 90°
Installation of a ceiling firestop is required:
• Refer to Figures 6.7, 6.8, 6.9.
• Roll the shield (around the chimney if already installed).
The three holes on each side will match up (large holes
on top).
• Insert three screws into the matching holes to form a
tube.
• Bend the tabs on the bottom of the tube inward to 90° to
maintain chimney air space (refer to Figure 6.8).
• Rest the insulation shield on the ceiling firestop below.
• Bend the tabs at the top of the shield inward to 90° to
maintain the 2 in. (51 mm) air space from the chimney.

• Metal is preferred, although any material stiff enough to
hold back the insulation can be used.
Warning! Risk of Fire! Use of cardboard or other
materials that can deflect under humidity or other environmental conditions is not recommended.
• The shield or barrier must be tall enough to extend
above the insulation and prevent blown-in insulation from
spilling into the cavity.
• Maintain specified air spaces around chimney.
• Check instructions and local codes for further details.
Double-check the Chimney Assembly
Continue assembling the chimney sections up through
the ceiling firestops as needed. While doing so, be
aware of the height and unsupported chimney length
limitations given under Section 5.
Check each section by pulling up slightly from the top
to ensure proper engagement before installing the succeeding sections. If they have been connected correctly, they will not disengage when tested.

A cardboard template of the front is printed on the outside
of the shipping box. Cut out the template along the outside of the line for use in your installation. A metal template (see catalog) is available for more durable continued use, remaining accurate over time. Both measure 1/8
in. (3 mm) larger all the way around than the actual front.
Use a wet or dry towel or a soft brush to remove any dust
or dirt from the non-combustible facing material.
Note: This 1/8 in. of the non-combustible material must
be painted or the red will be visible.
1. Stone, Brick Finish
Tools Required: 1/8 in. Allen wrench.
• Remove the doors on the fireplace (if installed).
• Remove the screws from the fascia and remove fascia
from the fireplace (if installed). Save the screws. Store
the fascia in a safe, protected area to prevent scratching
or other damage.
• Install the template on the front of the fireplace (Figure
7.1) using the screws saved in the previous step.
You are now ready to continue your installation with the
desired decorative material. The template also serves as
a protective covering and prevents damage to the front of
the fireplace.
NOTe: The decorative fascia must be removable for future
serviceability of the automatic combustion control.
Apply a non-combustible adhesive to attach tile, stone or
other non-combustible finishing materials per manufacturer’s instructions.
Warning! Risk of Fire! Do not apply tar paper or water
resistive barrier over non-combustible board.
• Apply metal lath to the 1/2 in. thick non-combustible
board with corrosion resistant self-tapping screws
capable of penetrating the metal surface behind the
non-combustible board.
• HHT recommends using type N or type S mortar.
Due to high temperatures, review polymer modifiers
specification sheet before using.
2. Tile, Granite, Marble Finish
• Due to high temperatures, HHT recommends using
unmodified thinset when applying tile.
• When applying granite or marble, HHT recommends
using thinset to adhere. If using a different adhesive,
review specification sheet for application in high
temperature areas.

Fireplace Setup
A.Firebrick Placement
The firebox of your fireplace is lined with high quality firebrick, which has exceptional insulating properties.
Do not use a grate; simply build a fire on the firebox floor.
Do not operate the fireplace without bricks. Make sure
bricks are installed as shown.

Baffle Board
The ceramic blanket and baffle board MUST be in contact
with the back of the firebox and even with each other in
the front. The baffle protection channel MUST be in position.
C.Install Fascia (Fronts)
Fronts are required to complete the installation. The 7100
fireplace allows a choice of fronts, therefore they are
shipped separately from the fireplace due to customer
preference and selection. Instructions for attachment
of the fronts are included with them. Contact your local
dealer with any questions on offerings or installation.
