2.4
PREPARATION OF THE FLUE HOLE
2.4.1
Mark the position of the centre of the flue on the inner wall.
2.4.2
Cut hole for outer flue pipe. There are two possible methods to achieve
this, either core drill or via hammer and chisel.
2.4.3
To core drill, proceed as follows :Drill a pilot hole through the wall, in position as specified in figure 6.
Using a 6” core drill, drill the flue hole.
To Hammer and chisel, proceed as follows :Mark the position of the centre of the flue pipe as specified in figure 6.
Mark the position of the hole around this point.
Chisel out the area as marked on the wall.
2.4.4
We then recommend that a cardboard cylinder is placed around the flue
pipe and inserted in the chiselled out hole whilst making good.
NOTE :- If the appliance is to be installed into a building under construction, it is recommended that a non-corrosive metal tube of 6” diameter be
inserted into the position of the hole.

2.5
INSTALLATION OF THE GAS SUPPLY
2.5.1
Before installing the firebox, decide from which side or if a rear
connection to the gas supply is required. Plan the pipe run to enter the
firebox from the left, right or rear and connect to the inlet elbow. See
below :-
2.5.2
If concealed pipe work is required plan the pipe run to enter the fire box
through one of the openings in the sides or rear of the fire box and
connect to the inlet elbow. See Fig. 7 & 8 below for a suggested
concealed pipe layout.

Note : Before breaking into the gas supply a pressure drop test should be
carried out to establish that the existing pipework is sound. Always insert
the grommet into the entry point used (a sharp blow with a hammer or chisel
will be sufficient to knock out the opening selected in the firebox) and with
the grommet fitted cut with a sharp knife to allow the supply pipework to
pass through into the firebox.

2.6
PREPARATION OF THE FLUE DUCT
2.6.1
Place the firebox into the fire opening with fire surround correctly
secured in the final position. From the outside of the house measure
from the face of the outside wall to the rear panel of the firebox through
the flue hole. Cut the flue duct to this size, using the polythene support
ring to support the flue whilst being cut. Remove the polystyrene
support ring from the flue duct and remove burrs from the pipe.
IMPORTANT : ENSURE THE PIPES ARE CUT SQUARELY.
2.6.2
The joint between the firebox and the flue duct as shown below in Fig. 9
must be secured with screws and sealed with the foil tape as supplied.
In order to do this, the wall plate must removed from the flue pipe /
termination.
Fig. 9

2.6.3
Due to the varying lengths of flue that will be required via differing
installations it will be necessary to drill the flue pipe using the 3 off holes
in the mounting flange on the rear of the combustion chamber as a
guide for positioning. When the holes have been drilled and the screws
fitted, wrap the joint with the foil tape supplied.
2.6.4
Re-fit the wall plate ensuring the outer set of holes as indicated above
in Fig. 9 are used. Use a high temperature sealant to secure the wall
plate to the outside wall of the property before securing with the screws
and rawlplugs supplied to ensure a mechanical fix.

2.7
SECURING OF FIREBOX TO THE OPENING
2.7.1
There is a choice of methods of fixing the firebox that are provided to
enable the installer to deal with any type of installation. The preferred
method of fixing the appliance is the cable fixing method, which is
described in detail in the following section.
2.7.2
If the standard firebox fixing flange is to be used, the firebox may be
secured using the cable method, but in installations where the cable
method is not suitable, e.g.insufficient space behind the firebox, or
loose masonry, the firebox can be fitted directly to either the front of the
fireplace via the flange with the four off screws provided. The firebox will
require sealing to the fireplace, regardless of the method used.
2.7.3
To secure the fire using the preferred cable method, proceed as follows
below :-
2.7.4
Mark out and drill 4 off No 14 6mm holes in the rear face of the fire
opening in the positions as shown in Fig. 10 below.

2.7.5
Fit the wall plugs provided and screw the fixing eyes securely into the
rear of the fire opening.
2.7.6
Uncoil the two fire fixing cables and thread one end of the each of the
cables through the rear of the fire box, and through each fixing eye at
the top. Thread both cables through the fixing eye’s at the bottom, then
the holes at the bottom of the firebox
2.7.7
Thread the cables through the rear of the firebox, insert the flue pipe /
terminal through the hole in the rear of the openin and offer the firebox
up to the fireplace.
12
2.7.8
To improve access to tension the screws it may be advantageous to
remove the control panel from the fire. To do this, remove the 4 off
retaining screws and on MC models, remove the control valve retaining
nut.
2.7.9
Thread a tensioning screw over both of the cables and ensure that the
tensioning nut is screwed fully up against the hexagon shoulder of the
tensioning screw (this provides maximum travel for the tensioning nut).
2.7.10
Fit a screwed nipple on to each of the cables and pull hand tight up
against the tensioning screw, then secure each nipple with a flat bladed
screwdriver.
2.7.11
Before making the final gas connection, thoroughly purge the gas
supply pipework to remove all foreign matter, otherwise serious
damage may be caused to the gas control valve on the fire.
Failure to purge the gas supply will invalidate the guarantee.
2.8
MAKING THE GAS CONNECTION / PRESSURE TESTING
2.8.1
The gas connection should be made to the appliance inlet elbow to
using 8mm rigid tubing.
2.8.2
Remove the pressure test point screw from the inlet elbow and fit a
manometer.
2.8.3

w.g.(+/- 0.4 in w.g.) for LPG models
2.8.6
Turn off the fire, remove the manometer and refit the pressure test point
screw. Check the pressure test point screw for gas tightness with the
appliance turned on using a suitable leak detection fluid or detector.
13
2.9
FITTING THE TERMINAL GUARD
2.9.1
With the flue terminal in position, place the terminal guard over the top
of the flue terminal and mark the position of the holes on the outer wall.
2.9.2
Remove the terminal guard and drill the 4 off 6 mm holes.
2.9.3
Insert the raw plugs into the drilled holes, replace the terminal guard
over the top of the flue terminal and attach to the wall using the No.12 x
40mm screws provided with the terminal guard.
NOTE : In England & Wales, building regulations require that a terminal
guard should be fitted if the terminal could come into contact with people
near the building or be subject to damage. BFM Europe Ltd. also
recommend the fitting of a flue terminal guard where regulations do not
demand that it be fitted. A suitable flue terminal guard is supplied with the

OPERATING THE FIRE (MANUAL CONTROL MODELS)
5.2.1
The controls are located behind the ashpan cover which is situated
behind the Ashpan / Fender. The controls, comprise a control valve to
adjust the gas flow and a push button piezo igniter.
To light the fire proceed as follows:-
5.2.2
Depress the control knob and turn anti-clockwise to the position
marked pilot. Hold in the control knob for a few seconds to allow the
gas to reach the pilot.
5.2.3
Continue to hold-in the control knob and press the igniter button. If the
pilot does not light, continue to press the igniter button until ignition
occurs. When the pilot has lit, continue to hold the control knob in for 510 seconds to allow the thermocouple to heat up, if the pilot goes out
when the control knob is released, repeat the lighting sequence.
5.2.4
After lighting, turn the control knob in the anti-clockwise direction to the
high position and the main burner will light. It is recommended that for
most efficient performance the fire is allowed to warm up for a few
minutes with the gas control on maximum.
5.2.5
The gas control can be turned clockwise from the maximum position to
give the desired heat output.
WARNING
If the fire goes out for any reason or is turned off and it is necessary to
re-light the fire it is important to allow the fire to cool for 5 minutes before
attempting to re-light it.

5.3
OPERATING THE FIRE (REMOTE CONTROL MODELS)
5.3.1
The Remote control handset generates an infrared signal, which will be
received by the sensor situated at the front right of your fire, behind the
ashpan cover. This infrared signal requires direct line of sight from the
handset to the sensor on the fire to ensure good operation. If the hands
set is lost or broken, the fire can be lit manually, see the user
instructions for details on how to operate the fire manually.
To light the appliance using the handset, point the handset at the fire
and press the 2 left hand buttons together. The fire will emit a “beep”
sound, the buttons can now be released. After a few seconds an
audible clicking can be heard and then the fire will light the pilot and
then light the main burner. The ignition cycle will take approximately 20
seconds.
To reduce the level of heat input on the fire, point the handset at the fire
and press the small flame button once (An audible beep will be heard)
and the heat input level will reduce to the low setting . Press
and continually hold the small flame button and the fire will reduce
incrementally to the low setting.
To increase the level of heat input on the fire, point the handset at the
fire and press the large flame button. (An audible beep will be
heard) and the heat input level will increase to the high setting
Press and continually hold the small flame button and the fire will
increase incrementally to the high setting.
