WARNING
Horizontal sections of this vent system require a minimum
of 3” clearances to combustibles at the top of the flue
and 1” clearance at the sides and bottom until the flue
penetrates the outside wall. A minimum 1” clearance all
around the flue is acceptable at this point of penetration.
If vertical rise is 71/2” feet or higher when top venting,
the clearance to combustibles is 1” on all sides of the
horizontal run.
This fireplace must be vented to the outside. The venting
system must NEVER be attached to a chimney serving
a separate solid fuel burning appliance. Each gas
appliance must use a separate vent system. Do not use
common vent systems.
Vertical sections of this vent system require a minimum
of 1” clearance to combustibles on all sides of the pipe.

INSTALLATION PLANNING
There are two basic types of direct-vent installation:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
It is important to select the proper length of vent pipe for
the type of termination you choose. It is also important to
note the wall thickness.
FOR HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
Select the amount of vertical rise desired. All horizontal run
of venting must have 1/4" rise for every 12" of run towards
the termination below 71⁄2 feet of vertical rise. With 71⁄2 feet
or more vertical rise off top of fireplace, the horizontal run
may be level. NEVER run vent piping down.
VENTING INSTALLATION
WARNING
Always maintain minimum clearances around vent
systems. The minimum clearance to combustibles for
horizontal vent pipe are 3” at the top and 1” at the sides
and bottom of the vent system until the pipe penetrates
the nearest vertical wall (1” required). A 1” minimum
clearance all around the pipe must be maintained at
outside wall and on vertical runs. Do not pack the open
air spaces with insulation or other materials. This could
cause high temperatures and may present a fire hazard.
*Unless the vertical run is 71/2 feet or higher (top vent
units only), the clearances for the horizontal run is 1” at
the top.
Horizontal venting which incorporates the twist lock pipe must
be installed on a level plane without an inclining or declining
slope.
You may use up to three 90° elbows in this vent configuration. See Horizontal Termination Configurations on Pages
15 and 16.
FOR VERTICAL TERMINATION
Measure the distance from the fireplace floor to the ceiling. Add the ceiling thickness, the vertical rise in an attic
or second story, and allow for sufficient vent height above
the roof line.
NOTICE
NOTE: You may use two 45° elbows in place of a 90°
elbow. You must follow rise to run ratios when using
45° elbows. The appliance is approved for use with
three 90° elbows maximum or a combination of 90°
and 45° elbows up to a maximum of 270°.
When installing in a chase, you should insulate
the chase as you would the outside walls of
your home. This is especially important in cold
climates. Insulation should be considered a
combustible material. Maintain proper clearances
to all combustible materials.
WARNING
Never run the vent pipe down. This may cause excessive
temperatures which could cause a fire.
For two-story applications, firestops are required at each
floor level. If an offset is needed in the attic, additional pipe
and elbows will be required.
You may use a chase with a vent termination with exposed
pipe on the exterior of the house. See Installing Vent
System in a Chase below. If pipe is enclosed in chase, it
is not exposed.
It is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas
exhaust. Certain limitations apply to vent configurations
and must be strictly followed.

Treatment of firestops and construction of the chase
may vary from building type to building type. These
instructions are not substitutes for the requirements
of local building codes. You must follow all local
building codes.
A chase is a vertical boxlike structure built to enclose
venting that runs along the outside of a building. A chase
is required for such venting.

CONFIGURATIONS
FP1957
Since it is very important for the venting system to
install firestop
maintain its balance between the combustion air intake
and the flue gas exhaust, certain limitations as to vent
configurations apply and must be strictly adhered to.
The Vent Graph, showing the relationship between vertical
and horizontal side wall venting, will help to determine the
various dimensions allowable. Refer to Page 15.
Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is 3" on top and 1" from bottom and sides
unless otherwise noted (Exception: Outside wall with
firestop: 1" all around pipes are allowed). If the vertical
run is 71⁄2 feet or more, off the top of the fireplace, the
clearance is 1" on all sides of the horizontal run.
When vent termination exits through foundations less than
20" below siding outcrop, the vent pipe must flush up with
the siding.
It is best to locate the fireplace in such a way that minimizes
the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent
pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace (or the top of the
transition elbow) to the face of the finished outside wall or
the mounting flange of the termination.

BELOW GRADE INSTALLATIONS
When it is not possible to meet the required vent terminal
clearances of 12" above grade level, a snorkel kit is recommended. It allows installation depth down to 7" (178
mm) below grade level. The 7" (178 mm) is measured
from the center of the horizontal vent pipe as it penetrates
through the wall.
Ensure that sidewall venting clearances are observed.
If venting system is installed below ground, we recommend a window well with adequate and proper drainage
to be installed around the termination area.
If installing a snorkel, a minimum 24" vertical rise is necessary. The maximum horizontal run with the 24” vertical
pipe is 36". This measurement is taken from the collar of
the fireplace (or transition elbow) to the face of the exterior
wall. Refer to the Sidewall Venting Graph for extended
horizontal run if the vertical exceeds 24".
1. Establish vent hole through the wall. Page 16, Figure
17.
2. Remove soil to a depth of approximately 16" below base
of snorkel. Install drain pipe. Install window well (not
supplied). Refill hole with 12" of coarse gravel leaving
a clearance of approximately 4" below snorkel. Figure

the maximum horizontal length must be reduced by 18"
(450 mm).
Example: Maximum horizontal length
No elbows = 10’ (3 m)
1x45° elbows = 8.5’ (2.6 m)
2x45° elbows = 7’ (2.1 m)
• A minimum of an 8' (2.5 m) vertical rise is required.
• Two sets of 45°elbows offsets may be used within the

1. Determine themax bends
route your vertical venting will take. If
ceiling joist, roof rafters or other framing will obstruct
the venting system, consider an offset. Refer to
Figure 32 to avoid cutting load bearing members.
NOTE: Pay special attention to these installation instructions
for required clearances (air space) to combustibles when
passing through ceilings, walls, roofs, enclosures, attic
rafters, etc. Do not pack air spaces with insulation. Also
note maximum vertical rise of the venting system and any
maximum horizontal offset limitations. Offsets must fall
within the parameters shown on Page 13, Figure 15.
2. Set fireplace in desired location. Drop a line plumb down
from the ceiling to the position of the flue exit. Mark the
center point where the vent will penetrate the ceiling.
Drill a small locating hole a this point.
Drop a plumb line from the inside of the roof to the ceiling

the same size as the ceiling joist. If the area above the
ceiling is an insulated ceiling or a room, nail firestop
from the top side. This prevents loose insulation from
falling into the required clearance space. Figure 33.
Otherwise, install firestop below the framed hole. The
firestop should be installed with no less than three nails
per side. Figure 34
2. Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to reach from the burner system flue up through
the firestop. Be sure pipe and elbow connections are
fully twist-locked. Page 16, Figure 15
3. Cut a hole in the roof using the locating hole as a center
point. (Cover any exposed open vent pipes before
cutting hole in roof). The 101⁄2" x 101⁄2" (267 x 267mm)
hole must be measured on the horizontal. Actual length
may be larger depending on the pitch of the roof. There
must be a 1" minimum clearance from the vent pipe to
combustible materials. (Insulation should be considered
a combustible material) Frame the opening as shown
on Page 16, Figure 16.
4. Connect a section of pipe and extend up through the
hole.

INSTALLATION ITEMS NEEDED
Before installing fireplace and burner system, make sure
you have the items listed below.
Tee joint
• Pipe wrench
Equipment shutoff valve* • Test gauge connection*
External regulator (supplied by installer)
Piping (check local codes)
Sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
Sediment trap (recommended)

* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with
1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge
connection. Purchase the CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve from your dealer.
CAUTION
For propane/LP connections only, the installer must supply
an external regulator. The external regulator will reduce
incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas
pressure to between 11 and 13 inches of water. If you do
not reduce incoming gas pressure, burner system regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the
vent pointing down as shown in Figure 45. Pointing the
vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
28
Use only new black iron or steel pipe. Internally
tinned copper or copper tubing can be used per
National Fuel Code, Section 2.6.3, providing gas
meets hydrogen sulfide limits, and where permitted
by local codes. Gas piping system must be sized to
provide minimum inlet pressure (listed on data plate)
at the maximum flow rate (BTU/hr). Undue pressure
loss will occur if the pipe is too small.

FIREPLACE INSTALLATION
Only persons licensed to work with gas piping may make
the necessary gas connections to this appliance.
NOTE : The gas line connection may be made using 1/2"
rigid tubing or an approved flex connector. Since some
municipalities have additional local codes it is always best
to consult your local authorities and the current edition of
the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1, NFPA54. In
Canada CSA-B149 (1 or 2) Installation Code.
A listed manual shutoff valve must be installed upstream of
the appliance. Union tee and plugged 1/8" NPT pressure
tapping point should be installed upstream of the appliance. Figure 46
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff
valve) in an accessible location. The main gas valve is for
turning on or shutting off the gas to the fireplace.
Check your building codes for any special requirements for
locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
A manual shutoff valve must be installed upstream
of the appliance. Union tee and plugged 1/8" NPT
pressure tapping point should be installed upstream
of the appliance. Figure 46
We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg
in supply line as shown in Figure 46. Locate sediment
trap/drip leg where it is within reach for cleaning. Install
in piping system between fuel supply and burner system.
Locate sediment trap/drip leg where trapped matter is not
likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them from going into the burner system
gas controls. If sediment trap/drip leg is not installed or is
installed wrong, burner system may not run properly.
CAUTION
WARNING
CAUTION

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION/SETUP
All System configuration/setup is done on the Command
Center.
NOTE: When using On/Off wall switch, the switch must be
in the ON position to perform all configuration set ups at
the command center.
COLD CLIMATE OPTION
Choose the Mode That Best Suits Your Needs
The Signature Command System is designed to operate
in either Standing Pilot or Intermittent Pilot mode.
• The Standing Pilot Mode is best for colder climates
when the pilot must remain on continuously to prevent
condensation and ensure reliable operation.
• The Intermittent Pilot Mode is ideal for maximum effi-
ciency, igniting the pilot only when needed to start your
fireplace, lowering fuel consumption and reducing your
carbon footprint.
Either mode benefits from the instantaneous battery backup, so you never have to worry about a power outage.
NOTE: The Signature Command System comes standard
in the Intermittent Pilot mode, so you must follow the instructions below to switch to Standing Pilot Mode if needed.
Intermittent/Standing Pilot Setup (Default intermittent)
1. Holding the ON button on the Command Center while
turning on the master switch will toggle between standing pilot and intermittent pilot.
2. After the above operation, one beep (for standing pilot) or two beeps (for intermittent pilot) will be given as
confirmation.
Six-hour Safety Shutdown Option (Default ON)
1. The system comes preset from the factory with a six
(6) hour shutdown from its last command of operation.
This is done to prevent the fireplace from continuing to
operate if unattended. You may disable this feature if
you wish.
NOTE: By disabling this feature, your fireplace may continue to operate unattended.
