UNVENTED 32" LogMate® FIREBOX
PRODUCT
FEATURES
OPERATION
This firebox is designed for use with approved ANS Z21.1.2 decorative type
unvented room heaters. (Physical size limitations apply. Refer to minimum firebox
requirements supplied with log heater.) It
requires no outside venting or chimney making installation easy and inexpensive. When
used without the blower (models FB32CA
and NLFB32C only), the firebox requires
no electricity making it ideal for emergency
backup heat.
BLOWER ACCESSORY
The FB32CA and NLFB32C firebox will
accept the GA3700 accessory. The variable
blower allows you to select the fan speed
you desire. The blower circulates heated air
from the firebox into the room. Use of
blower is optional.
LOCATING
FIREBOX
PLANNING
Plan where you will install the firebox. This
will save time and money later when you
install the firebox. Before installation, consider the following:
1. Where the firebox will be located. Allow for wall and ceiling clearances (see
Installation Clearances, page 7).
2. Everything needed to complete installation.
3. These models CANNOT be installed in
a bedroom or bathroom.
4. Proper air for combustion and ventilation (see below).
AIR FOR
COMBUSTION AND
VENTILATION
WARNING: This firebox shall
not be installed in a confined space
or unusually tight construction
unless provisions are provided
for adequate combustion and ventilation air. Read the following instructions to insure proper fresh
air for this and other fuel-burning
appliances in your home.
Today’s homes are built more energy efficient than ever. New materials, increased
insulation, and new construction methods
help reduce heat loss in homes. Home owners
weather strip and caulk around windows and
doors to keep the cold air out and the warm air
in. During heating months, home owners
want their homes as airtight as possible.
While it is good to make your home energy
efficient, your home needs to breathe. Fresh
air must enter your home. All fuel-burning
appliances need fresh air for proper combustion and ventilation.
Exhaust fans, fireboxes, clothes dryers, and
fuel burning appliances draw air from the
house to operate. You must provide adequate fresh air for these appliances. This
will insure proper venting of vented fuelburning appliances.
buildings of unusually tight construction,
you must provide additional fresh air.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:
a. walls and ceilings exposed to the
outside atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with
a rating of one perm (6x10-11 kg
per pa-sec-m2) or less with openings gasketed or sealed and
b. weather stripping has been
added on openable windows and
doors and
c. caulking or sealants are applied
to areas such as joints around
window and door frames, between sole plates and floors, between wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing, electrical, and
gas lines, and at other openings.
If your home meets all of the three
criteria above, you must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air
From Outdoors, page 6.
If your home does not meet all of the
three criteria above, proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Firebox
Location, page 5.
Confined Space and Unconfined
Space
Unusually Tight Construction
The National Fuel Gas Code (ANS Z2123.1,
1992 Section 5.3) defines a confined space
as a space whose volume is less than 50
cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per
kw) of the aggregate input rating of all
appliances installed in that space and an
unconfined space as a space whose volume
is not less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu
per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate
input rating of all appliances installed in that
space. Rooms communicating directly with
the space in which the appliances are installed*, through openings not furnished
with doors, are considered a part of the
unconfined space.
This firebox shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight construction
unless provisions are provided for adequate
combustion and ventilation air.
The air that leaks around doors and windows may provide enough fresh air for
combustion and ventilation. However, in
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only
if there are doorless passageways or ventilation grills between them.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE
VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National
Fuel Gas Code. NFPA 54/ANS Z223.1, Section 5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilation.
All spaces in homes fall into one of the three
following ventilation classifications:
1. Unusually Tight Construction
2. Unconfined Space
3. Confined Space
The information on pages 4 through 6 will
help you classify your space and provide
adequate ventilation.

DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW FOR FIREBOX LOCATION
Determining if You Have a Confined or Unconfined Space
Use this work sheet to determine if you have a confined or unconfined space.
Space: Includes the room in which you will install firebox plus any adjoining rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills
between the rooms.
1. Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height).
Length x Width x Height = _________ cu. ft. (volume of space)
Example: Space size22 ft. (length) x 18 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 3168 cu. ft. (volume of space)
If additional ventilation to adjoining room is supplied with grills or openings, add the volume of these rooms to the total volume of
the space.
2. Divide the space volume by 50 cubic feet to determine the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.
__________ (volume of space) ÷ 50 cu. ft. = (Maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
Example: 3168 cu. ft. (volume of space) ÷ 50 cu. ft. = 63.3 or 63,300 (maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.
Gas water heater*
_____________________ Btu/Hr
Example:
Gas furnace
_____________________ Btu/Hr
Gas water heater
40,000

Gas firebox logs
_____________________ Btu/Hr
Total
= 79,000
Btu/Hr
Other gas appliances* + _____________________ Btu/Hr
4.
Total
= _____________________ Btu/Hr
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Direct-vent draws combustion air from the outdoors and vents to the outdoors.
Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support with the actual amount of Btu/Hr used.
_____________________Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
_____________________Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
Example: 63,300 Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
79,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
The space in the above example is a confined space because the actual Btu/Hr used is more than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.
You must provide additional fresh air. Your options are as follows:
A. Rework worksheet, adding the space of an adjoining room. If the extra space provides an unconfined space, remove door to adjoining
room or add ventilation grills between rooms. See Ventilation Air from Inside Building, page 6.
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventilation Air from Outdoors, page 6.
C. Install a lower Btu/Hr firebox, if lower Btu/Hr size makes room unconfined.
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support, the space is an unconfined space. You will need no
additional fresh air ventilation.
WARNING: If the area in which the firebox and gas log heater may be operated is smaller than that defined as
an unconfined space or if the building is of unusually tight construction, provide adequate combustion and
ventilation air by one of the methods described in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANS Z223.1, 1992, Section 5.3 or
applicable local codes.

OWNER’S MANUAL
INSTALLATION
NOTICE: This heater is intended
for use as supplemental heat. Use
this heater along with your primary heating system. Do not install this heater as your primary
heat source. If you have a central
heating system, you may run
system’s circulating blower while
using heater. This will help circulate the heat throughout the
house. In the event of a power
outage, you can use this heater
as your primary heat source.
Note: Your Vanguard firebox is designed to
be used in zero clearance installations. Wall
or framing material can be placed directly
against any exterior surface on the rear,
sides, or top of your firebox, except where
standoff spacers are integrally attached. If
standoff spacers are attached to your firebox, these spacers can be placed directly
against wall or framing materials.
Use the dimensions shown for rough openings to create the easiest installation (see BuiltIn Firebox Installation, pages 11 and 12).
INSTALLATION
CLEARANCES
NOTICE: A qualified service person must install firebox. Follow
all local codes.
WARNING: Maintain the minimum clearances. If you can, provide greater clearances from
floor, ceiling, and adjoining wall.
WARNING: Never install the
firebox
• in a bedroom or bathroom
• in a recreational vehicle
• where curtains, furniture,
clothing, or other flammable
objects are less than 42 inches
from the front, top, or sides of
the firebox
• in high traffic areas
• in windy or drafty areas
Carefully follow the instructions below. This
will ensure safe installation.
CAUTION: Log heaters installed in this firebox create warm
air currents. These currents move
heat to wall surfaces next to firebox. Installing firebox next to vinyl or cloth wall coverings or
operating firebox where impurities (such as tobacco smoke, aromatic candles, cleaning fluids,
oil or kerosene lamps, etc.) in the
air exist, may discolor walls.
Minimum Wall and Ceiling

If placing custom mantel above built-in
firebox, you must meet the minimum allowable clearance between mantel shelf and top
of firebox opening shown in Figure 7 on
page 8. These are the minimum allowable
mantel clearances for a safe installation.
Use larger clearances wherever possible to
minimize the heating of objects and materials placed on the mantel.
CAUTION: Do not allow the
vent-free gas log heater to touch
or extend beyond the fireplace
screen.
If your installation does not meet the minimum clearances in Figure 7, page 8, you
must:
• raise the mantel to an acceptable height,
OR
• remove the mantel.
IMPORTANT: Vent-free gas log heaters
add moisture to the air. Although this is
beneficial, installing firebox in rooms without enough ventilation air may cause mildew to form from too much moisture. See

WARRANTY INFORMATION
KEEP THIS WARRANTY
Model
Serial No.
Date Purchased
Always specify model and serial numbers when communicating with the factory.
We reserve the right to amend these specifications at any time without notice. The only warranty applicable is our standard written
warranty. We make no other warranty, expressed or implied.
LIMITED WARRANTY
VENT-FREE FIREBOX
DESA International warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and components for four (4) years from the date of first
purchase, provided that the product has been properly installed, operated and maintained in accordance with all applicable instructions.
To make a claim under this warranty the Bill of Sale or cancelled check must be presented.
This warranty is extended only to the original retail purchaser. This warranty covers the cost of part(s) required to restore this heater
to proper operating condition and an allowance for labor when provided by a DESA Authorized Service Center. Warranty part(s) MUST
be obtained through authorized dealers of this product and/or DESA International who will provide original factory replacement parts.
Failure to use original factory replacement parts voids this warranty. The heater MUST be installed by a qualified installer in accordance
with all local codes and instructions furnished with the unit.
This warranty does not apply to parts that are not in original condition because of normal wear and tear, or parts that fail or become
damaged as a result of misuse, accidents, lack of proper maintenance or defects caused by improper installation. Travel, diagnostic cost,
labor, transportation and any and all such other costs related to repairing a defective heater will be the responsibility of the owner.
TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY THE LAW OF THE JURISDICTION THAT GOVERNS THE SALE OF THE PRODUCT;
THIS EXPRESS WARRANTY EXCLUDES ANY AND ALL OTHER EXPRESSED WARRANTIES AND LIMITS THE DURATION OF ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE TO FOUR (4) YEARS ON ALL COMPONENTS FROM THE DATE OF FIRST PURCHASE;
AND DESA INTERNATIONAL’S LIABILITY IS HEREBY LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT AND
DESA INTERNATIONAL SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER INCLUDING INDIRECT,
INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
Some states do not allow a limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts or an exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation on implied warranties, or exclusion or limitation on damages may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
