1. Product’s Description
a. General Characteristics
This product is a modern appliance which combines all the advantages
of a traditional fireplace without any of the disadvantages.
Weighing much less than a traditional fireplace, your new fireplace is
easy and quick to install and can be ready to ignite in a matter of hours.

intimate and friendly atmosphere.
.
b. Planika and the Environment

having adequate natural ventilation. No flue also means all the heat
remains within the room.
Thanks to the use of FANOLA® alcohol-based, ecological liquid, the
operation of the Insert A-05 means clean, emission free and
environmentally friendly usage. There are no combustion residues, such as
ash or soot, to clean or remove!

bringing the flame close to the surface of the liquid.

4.3. After a few moments you can adjust the flame size by altering the
reservoir shutter using the supplied metal tool (F).
4.4. Regulate the size of the flame by altering the shutter in a range
between maximal opening and the position presented in the
drawing below. The opening range has been set for optimal
combustion. Therefore, this operating range should not be
exceeded except when wanting to extinguish the flame which can
be achieved by closing the shutter completely.

extinguished.
To extinguish the flame close the reservoir shutter quickly to cutoff
the oxygen supply.
Closing the shutter slowly will not guarantee the extinguishing of
