INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Preliminary Notes Before Installation
This appliance is a high efficiency, flueless, flame effect gas fire. It provides radiant and convected warmth both efficiently and safely utilising the latest type catalytic convertor burner technology.
The appliance incorporates a combustion monitoring system (Oxygen Depletion
System). It must not be adjusted or put out of operation. If replaced then manufacturers original parts must be used.
The appliance is designed to fit various types of situations as listed in the
Installation Requirements.
This appliance must be installed in accordance with the rules in force and only
used in a sufficiently ventilated space. A minimum of 100cm2 purpose provided
ventilation is required for this appliance. An openable window or louvre is also
required. This appliance is factory set for operation on the gas type, and at the
pressure stated on the appliance data plate.
The room size must be a minimum of 30m3 to allow adequate circulation of air
and ensure the correct operation of the fire. This volume may include adjacent
spaces but these spaces must not be separated by a door. In order to convert
from cubic feet (ft3) to cubic metres (m3) divide the room volume (in ft3) by 35.3.
This appliance is intended as a secondary source of heat only and should not be
used in a room without some form of background heating present.
The appliance must not be installed in a bedroom, bathroom or any sleeping
area. The appliance does not require a flue system of any type as the catalytic
converter cleans the flue products to provide a complete combustion system,
which is intrinsically safe.
The appliance must be installed by a GAS SAFE registered person in accordance
with Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
On initial lightup of a new appliance, the ‘newness’ will burn off within the first
few hours of operation. During this period some smoke may be emitted from
outlet grille, this should be no cause for concern. Accordingly, the room should
be well ventilated with all windows and doors open during this period.
Read all these instructions before commencing installation.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
If the appliance is to be sited near a disused or unserviceable fireplace served by a natural draught flue then
the old flue must be sealed off. It will be necessary to ventilate the old flue to prevent condensation and dampness forming, however any air vent used to ventilate the old flue must not be sited within 500mm of this appliance. If the flue can be ventilated to the outside of the building then this is usually the best solution. If in doubt
then advice should be sought from a local building control officer.
The appliance is designed to be wall mounted. If the appliance is to be mounted on a newly fabricated area of
wall that also serves the purpose of sealing off the old flue then it is very important that there are no holes,
gaps or otherwise in this wall that will allow draughts from the old flue to enter the room, especially directly
behind the appliance. Such draughts could affect the performance of the ODS system and result in nuisance
cutting out, for example. If the gas supply pipe is to enter the appliance from the rear, i.e. emerge from the
wall behind the appliance, then any hole in the wall from which the pipe emerges must be tightly sealed.
Propane/LPG models must not be installed in cellars, basements or any room which is completely below ground
level.
3.1
ROOM SIZING
The room size MUST be a minimum of 30m3 (e.g. 3.5m x 3.5m x 2.45m or 11'6" x 11'6" x 8') to allow adequate circulation of air and ensure the correct operation of the fire. This volume may include adjacent
spaces but these spaces must not be separated by a door. To calculate a room size in cubic metres (m3)
divide the room volume in cubic feet (ft3) by 35.3.
4.0
SITE REQUIREMENTS
This appliance is designed to be wall-hung. Do not recess any part of the appliance into the wall.
This appliance may be installed in any room in the home except bathrooms or bedrooms. The appliance is
designed to be versatile, and as such will operate correctly when exposed to normal gentle draughts experienced
within the home. It is not recommended, however that the appliance be installed in areas where it is likely to be
directly exposed to persistent strong draughts, that may be generated by outside doors, windows, air vents, air
conditioning units, extractor fans, ceiling fans etc. See section 4.1 for more information on ventilation.

SITE REQUIREMENTS (continued)
Clearances to non-combustibles
Non combustible surfaces are defined as brick, metal, marble, concrete etc. and also a number of man-made materials impervious to flame. If in doubt refer to the material manufacturer for further information before proceeding with installation.
Clearances to the sides of the appliance are 100mm (4in). Clearance to the front of the appliance is 500mm (20in).
The back of the appliance may be installed directly onto a non-combustible wall, providing the area behind the
appliance is flat and does not interfere with the various vent holes in the back panel of the appliance.
A non combustible shelf of any depth may be positioned above the appliance provided it is no closer than 400mm
from the top of the appliance glass panel and the wall above the appliance is non combustible.
The appliance must not be positioned vertically within 60mm of a solid floor (i.e. wood or stone) or hearth. This
dimension is measured vertically to the bottom of the appliance firebox.
Clearances to combustible materials
Combustible materials are defined as wood, fabrics, or other materials likely to combust if exposed to flame.
Generally, any material, which is likely to discolour, melt or misshape when exposed to moderate heat, should be
considered as a combustible material or surface.
Clearance to the sides of the appliance are 100mm(4in) but curtains, drapes and other fabrics are not permitted
within a distance of 500mm(20in) of the appliance sides. No such materials are permitted directly above the appliance regardless of distance.
The minimum clearance to the ceiling above the appliance is 800mm measured from the top of the appliance
glass panel.
Combustible materials should not be positioned directly in front of the appliance within a distance of one metre.
Under no circumstances should any electrical equipment e.g. plasma screen TV sets etc. be positioned on the wall
above the appliance. The appliance is designed to be wall mounted alone and not in conjunction with any type of
combustible fire surround. No combustible shelves should be positioned on the wall above the appliance. It
should be established that any mirrors or picture frames etc. to be positioned on the wall above the appliance
are able to withstand prolonged exposure to moderate heat and moisture before proceeding with their installation.
The back of the appliance may be installed directly onto a combustible wall, providing it is relatively flat and
does not interfere with the various vent holes in the back panel of the appliance. The wall must be structurally
sound and constructed from a material capable of withstanding moderate heat. Brick, concrete, finished plaster,
most types of conventional wall paper and dry-lined plasterboard are usually examples of suitable materials,
however as there are many methods of wall construction and many variations in the composition of construction materials, in some circumstances, cracking may occur to plasterwork. Materials such as flock, blown vinyl
and embossed paper which are sensitive to even small amounts of heat should be avoided as scorching and or
discolouration may occur over time. Avoid siting the appliance near joins or joints in plasterboard as exposure
to moderate heat may cause cracking along the joint line.
If the appliance is to be mounted on a dry lined wall or a timber framed construction wall then the integrity and
ability of the wall to carry the weight of the appliance must be confirmed. It is important in these circumstances
that any vapour control barrier is not damaged, and that any structural members of the house frame are not damaged.
The appliance must not be positioned vertically within 100 mm of a carpeted floor, rugs or fabric materials of any
kind. This dimension is measured vertically to the bottom of the appliance firebox.
4.1
VENTILATION
A minimum of 100 cm2 purpose provided ventilation is required for this appliance. This may be achieved
either with one vent 100 cm2 at a high or low position in the room, or split ventilation i.e. 50cm2 installed
at high level and 50cm2 installed at low level within the room. An openable window or equivalent is also
required. The requirements of other flued appliance operating in the same room or space must be taken
into consideration when assessing ventilation.

4.1
VENTILATION (continued)
Any ventilation fitted must comply with BS 5871 part 4 and BS 5440 part 2. Ventilation fitted under, or
within immediate vicinity of the appliance must not be used as it may adversely effect performance of the
ODS system. The appliance MUST NOT be installed in a bedroom, bathroom or any sleeping area. For
Republic of Ireland, see relevant rules in force. The appliance should not be installed within 1 metre of any
air vent.

GAS SUPPLY ROUTES
There are four possible entry points for the gas
supply pipework to enter the appliance firebox as
shown in figure 2.
These entry points are ‘knock out’ type holes.
Non-concealed gas connections may be made
using the entry points in the bottom or sides of
the firebox. A concealed gas connection may be
made using the knock out hole in the centre back
of the firebox. Select the most appropriate entry
point and knock out the relevant hole with a Figure 2
sharp tap from a hammer and fit the rubber
grommet supplied. A small incision can now be made in the rubber to slip snugly around the outside of the supply pipe and sleeving.
All installation pipework must be in accordance with the current edition of National regulations/codes
and the rules in force.
In order to avoid unnecessary pressure drops, use of small diameter pipe should be kept to a minimum, for example, we recommend no more than 1.5 metres of 8mm pipe. If a concealed gas connection is to be made, the supply pipe should always be sleeved through walls and floors using the
shortest possible route. For concealed supply pipe routing, pipes must (where possible) be vertical
and providing there is sufficient wall thickness available, they should be placed in pipe chases.
Horizontal pipe runs should be avoided. Prior to chasing a solid wall, an inspection should be made
to note the proximity of any cables/sockets outlets which may already be buried. Pipes must be
secured using suitable clips and protected against corrosion. Ideally factory finished protected
pipework and fittings should be used. Joints should be kept to a minimum and compression fittings
must not be used. The pipework installation must be tested for tightness before any protection is
applied and/or the pipework and fittings are buried.

fixing screws provided may be used.
Depending on the condition of the wall it may be necessary to use additional
fixings. In this situation, any additional fixings and wallplugs should be of the
same size and type as the ones provided. At the appropriate stage of the
installation, drill four holes using only a 8mm masonry bit to a depth of
42mm. Insert the wallplugs provided ensuring they are flush to the wall.
If the appliance is to be mounted on a dry lined wall or a timber framed construction wall then efforts
should be made to fix in at least two positions vertically, into one of the wooden studs, or supporting wooden members of the wall using two of the fixing screws provided. If this is not achievable then the wall should
be strengthened using appropriate building materials.
If there is no alternative than to rely on some plasterboard fixFigure 5
ings then special cavity screw fixings or hollow wall anchors
will be required which are not supplied with this product. These
should be constructed from metal and not plastic and of the
design shown in figure 4. For further guidance for wall fixing in
timber framed buildings refer to any relevant local codes of
practice.
Flat Wall Fixing - All Models
To assist with fixing the appliance, a template is provided as
shown in figure 3. Mark the positions shown as “Fixing points”
on the wall. If a concealed gas connection is to be made ensure
the gas supply pipe is in its final position and can enter the
appliance in the correct position when the appliance is hung on
the wall.
Drill the wall as appropriate for the type of wall as previously described in this section, and insert the chosen type of wall fixings. Insert the wall fixing screws into the top wall plugs, taking care to leave the screws
protruding approximately 5mm from the wall.
Now hang the appliance onto these screws through the two keyhole shaped holes in the upper brackets on
the back panel of the appliance. Insert the lower fixing screws into the lower wall plugs through the corresponding fixing holes in the lower part of the back panel.
Do not tighten fully. Before tightening the wall mounting screws fully, at this stage it is recommended to
check the horizontal alignment of the appliance with a spirit level, as small adjustments can still be made
if necessary. When this has been checked, tighten all four fixing screws fully.
To access the upper fixing screws insert a screwdriver through the round access holes in the front face of
the outlet grille (as shown in figure 5). These access holes are located in the same position on all models.
7.1
CHECKING THE BURNER
There are no imitation fuel bed components to install. The appliance features a ribbon burner which is
designed to produce a continuous band of flame over it’s length.
The burner should be visually inspected to ensure it is free from any foreign matter.
If it is necessary to clean or dust off the burner then the glass door should be removed by removal of the
four retaining screws. Re-fit the glass door after cleaning or inspection, ensuring a good seal.

TESTING AND COMMISSIONING
Turn on and test the gas supply up to the fire for any leaks, in accordance with the current edition of BS
689.
For Republic of Ireland, reference should be made to the current edition of IS813 (the relevant standards
governing installation).
8.1
OPERATING THE APPLIANCE
The pilot is visible behind the left hand side of the burner.
The control knob is located on the lower right hand side of the
outer case. It is of a spherical design and is marked as shown in
figure 6;
Push in and turn the control knob to the SPARK position, and hold
there for a few seconds. Continue turning anti-clockwise through
the spark click to the PILOT light position, ensuring the pilot has
lit. If not, return the knob clockwise, and repeat.
When the pilot lights after the spark, keep the knob depressed for
approximately ten seconds. Now release the knob and the pilot
should stay alight. If the pilot is extinguished during use, wait
three minutes before repeating the ignition procedure.
‘OFF’ position
‘SPARK’ position
‘LOW’ position
‘HIGH’ position
Figure 6
To achieve the HIGH setting, push the control knob in slightly and continue turning anti-clockwise to the
high position. The main burner should light after a few seconds. To decrease the setting to LOW, turn the
control knob clockwise to the low setting.
To turn to the PILOT position from the HIGH or LOW positions, press the control knob in, and return to the
pilot position and release. To turn the fire OFF, keep the knob pressed in, return to the off position and
release.
8.2
SPARK FAILURE
The gap between the spark electrode and the pilot should be 3 - 5mm to produce a good spark. There
should be no need to adjust this. If under any circumstances the piezo electric spark fails, the pilot cannot
be lit manually.
8.3
BURNER PRESSURE
The pressure test point is located on the inlet restrictor elbow as shown in figure 7. Release the setting
pressure test point screw, and attach a pressure gauge. Light the fire on the HIGH setting.
To commission the appliance, the burner pressure must be in accordance with the figures stated in the data
section of these instructions.
The fire is factory set to achieve the correct heat input
at the stated pressure and any significant variation
could indicate a supply problem. If the pressure is too
high, the gas supply meter may be set incorrectly.
This should be checked with the fire running and if
necessary reset by the gas supplier.
If the burner pressure is too low, then check the inlet
pressure with the appliance running. If this is less
than than the figure stated in section 2.0 of these
instructions it will need to be reset by the gas supplier. If the setting pressure is too low, but the meter
pressure is acceptable, then a problem in the supply
pipework is to be suspected.
Figure 7
This will be dirt and debris, kinked or inadequate size pipes, restriction in a fitting, shut off elbow not fully
open or solder flashing across a joint. Identify the cause of the restriction and rectify. Switch the fire off,
disconnect the pressure gauge and refit the test nipple screw. Light the fire and check for gas soundness.
In the event that the burner pressure is not in accordance with the figures stated in the data section of these
instructions, the appliance must not be commissioned, and the cause investigated.

10.1
SERVICING THE BURNER UNIT AND GAS ASSEMBLY
Firstly, remove the decorative frame assembly per the reverse of section 8.4, the glass panel, and disconnect the gas connection inside appliance. The gas connections to the gas valve can now be released. Detach
the burner front cover plate by removal of the four retaining screws. Undo the four screws retaining the
burner support brackets to the base and rear of the firebox. Remove the control knob and spindle assembly from the valve by removal of the spindle retaining clip. The burner may now be removed.
Remove the pilot and main burner pipes and blow through to dislodge any debris. Now remove the restrictor elbow and blow through to make sure it is entirely clear.
Unclip the pilot lint gauze and clean with a soft brush. Clean the exterior of the pilot assembly with a soft
brush and blow through the flame ports on the pilot head. Check the aeration holes are free from lint or
dirt. The pilot assembly can be removed if required by disconnecting the electrode HT lead, gas pipe and
unscrewing the mounting screws and lifting away.
The pilot assembly is a non-serviceable item and should not be taken apart. Aeration holes must be
absolutely clear internally for proper operation. NEVER MODIFY OR BEND THE THERMOCOUPLE TO MAKE
THE PILOT STAY ALIGHT. Modifications are dangerous and can have serious unseen effects on safety. If
the pilot will not stay lit there is a problem with dirt, the gas supply to it, or the thermocouple needs
replacement.
The gas valve is a non-serviceable item. If this needs replacement, remove M4 securing screw holding the
valve in place, remove all pipe unions, electrode lead, thermocouple lead and then the complete valve.
Replacement must be original manufacturers parts. Re-assemble in the reverse of removal. Ensure setting
pressures are as stated in Section 2; Appliance Data.

10.2 PILOT ASSEMBLY
Clean the pilot assembly with a soft brush and blow through. Check the aeration holes are free of any dirt
or lint. Clean thoroughly internally, the connection can be removed from the base of the pilot unit using
two spanners to make cleaning easier. Do not damage or try to dismantle the pilot injector.
The unit is factory set and the only check necessary is to ensure the spark gap is correct. See specifications for gas setting.
NEVER MODIFY OR BEND THE THERMOCOUPLE TO MAKE THE PILOT STAY ALIGHT. If the pilot will not
stay lit there is a problem with dirt, the gas supply, or the thermocouple needs replacement. Modifications
are dangerous and can have a serious unseen effect on safety and therefore MUST not be done.
Replacements must be original manufacturers parts. Re-assemble in the reverse of removal. Ensure setting
pressures are as stated in Section 2; Appliance Data.
10.3
CATALYST
It is recommended that the catalysts are inspected for signs of damage and dirt during routine servicing
procedures. The expected life of the catalysts is in excess of 11,000 hours (10 years of normal use). After
this time the catalysts should be replaced.
If there are any deposits of dirt or soot on the catalyst they should be cleaned with a soft brush and a vacuum cleaner. If removed for cleaning ensure the seals are in good condition before replacing the catalyst.
New seals will usually be required. The performance of the catalysts may be checked using a combustion
gas analyser as follows. Any analyser used should conform to EN 50379-3.
Ignite the fire as per the operating instructions, and run at maximum setting for 15 minutes. Position gas
sample probe directly over the catalysts via the outlet grille, on top of the appliance. Record the carbon
dioxide (CO2) concentration and then the carbon monoxide (CO) concentration as displayed by the analyser
- also noting the units in which the values are expressed. Most analysers display carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations in percentage (%) terms and carbon monoxide concentration in parts per million (ppm) terms.
In order to calculate the combustion ratio for the appliance (CO/CO2) it is first necessary to express both
gas concentrations in terms of percentage. To convert from parts per million (ppm) to a percentage (%)
divide the ppm figure by 10,000. Examples : 35ppm = 0.0035%, 15ppm = 0.0015%, 5ppm = 0.0005%. Now
divide the concentration of carbon monoxide (CO) expressed in percent by the concentration of carbon
dioxide (CO2) to obtain the appliance combustion ratio.
CO (%)
CO2 (%) = ratio
The combustion ratio of the gasses emitted by the catalytic convertor should not exceed 0.0015.
If replacing, firstly, remove the decorative frame/glass facia (as described in section 8.3) and outer casing.
The catalysts are located on the top of the internal firebox and can be removed by unscrewing the retaining nuts securing the clamping plates. Remove the catalysts their seals and discard. Refit the new catalysts
and seals in reverse order, ensure the catalysts and the glass door have good seals.
10.4 TESTING FOR FIREBOX LEAKAGE
Appliances that are several years old or have been extensively dismantled should be checked for soundness. It is important that all the products of combustion pass through the catalytic converter at the top of
the firebox before leaving the appliance.
The firebox is heated by lighting for a few minutes to provide a flow through the firebox. The burner is
then shut off and a smoke pellet or match introduced at the base of the fire underneath the burner tray.
Large quantities of smoke will emerge from the top of the appliance, but none should emerge from the
joints or gasket faces, especially around the door.
It is important to note that the appliance can never be expected to be 100% smoke tight and small quantities of smoke may be seen in corners of joints and gasket faces etc without affecting safety when the
fire is in operation.

CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLES - continued
Clearances to combustible materials
Combustible materials are defined as wood, fabrics, or other materials likely to combust if exposed to
flame. Generally, any material, which is likely to discolour, melt or misshape when exposed to moderate
heat, should be considered as a combustible material or surface. Clearance to the sides of the appliance
are 100mm (4”) but curtains, drapes and other fabrics are not permitted within a distance of 500mm (20”)
of the appliance sides. No such materials are permitted directly above the appliance regardless of distance.
The minimum clearance to the ceiling above the appliance is 800mm (31.5”) measured from the top of the
appliance glass panel. Combustible materials should not be positioned directly in front of the appliance
within a distance of one metre. Under no circumstances should any electrical equipment e.g. plasma/LCD
screen TV sets etc. be positioned on the wall above the appliance. The appliance is designed to be wall
mounted alone and not in conjunction with any type of combustible fire surround. No combustible shelves
should be positioned on the wall above the appliance. It should be established that any mirrors or picture
frames etc. to be positioned on the wall above the appliance are able to withstand prolonged exposure to
moderate heat and moisture before proceeding with their installation. The back of the appliance may be
installed directly onto a combustible wall, providing it is relatively flat and does not interfere with the various vent holes in the back panel of the appliance. The wall must be structurally sound and constructed from
a material capable of withstanding moderate heat. Brick, concrete, finished plaster, most types of conventional wall paper and dry-lined plasterboard are examples of suitable materials. Materials such as flock,
blown vinyl and embossed paper which are sensitive to even small amounts of heat should be avoided as
scorching and or discolouration may occur over time. If the appliance is to be mounted on a dry lined wall
or a timber framed construction wall then the integrity and ability of the wall to carry the weight of the appliance must be confirmed. It is important in these circumstances that any vapour control barrier is not damaged, and that any structural members of the house frame are not damaged - refer to section 7.0 of the
installation section of these instructions. The appliance must not be positioned vertically within 100 mm
(4”) of a carpeted floor, rugs or fabric materials of any kind. This dimension is measured vertically to the
bottom of the appliance firebox.
3.0
VENTILATION AND ROOM SIZE
Purpose provided ventilation of 100cm2 MUST be provided for this appliance. An openable window or
equivalent is also required. Any ventilation fitted must comply with local Codes and/or Regulations.
Ventilation fitted under, or within immediate vicinity of the appliance must not be used as it may adversely effect performance of the combustion monitoring system (ODS) system. The appliance shall not be
installed within one metre of any existing air vent, and any new air vent shall not be installed within one
metre of the appliance.
WARNING : Ventilation openings must never be blocked or restricted in any way.
The requirements of other appliances operating in the space or room must be taken into consideration
when assessing ventilation requirements, this will have been carried out by your installer. A supply of fresh
air into the room is advisable to maintain temperatures within limits.
The room size MUST be a minimum of 30m3 (e.g. 3.5m x 3.5m x 2.45m or 11'6" x 11'6" x 8'). This is to allow
adequate circulation of air and ensure the correct operation of the fire. This volume may include adjacent
spaces but these spaces must not be separated by a door. Note : To calculate a room size in cubic metres
(m3) divide the room volume in cubic feet (ft3) by 35.3.
It should be noted that heaters create warm air currents. These currents move heat to wall surfaces next
to the heater. Installing the heater next to vinyl or cloth wall coverings or operating the heater where impurities in the air (such as tobacco smoke, candle smoke etc.) exist, may cause the walls to become discoloured. This appliance is intended as a secondary source of heat only and should not be used in a room
without some form of background heating present. If the appliance is used in a room as the sole source of
heat, then condensation may occur on colder surfaces within the room. This appliance must not be used in
bathrooms and bedrooms.

COMBUSTION MONITORING SYSTEM
This fire is fitted with a combustion monitoring safety device (ODS). If the appliance shuts down during use
for no apparent reason then several reasons may be suspected. If a door or window has been opened creating a draught, then pilot disturbance could be the problem and removal of the draught should resolve
this. The appliance can then be re-lit in accordance with the previous section.
If pilot disturbance is not the cause, then the ODS safety system may be in operation. Switch the appliance OFF, call in your installer to check the appliance and ventilation. Remedial work must be carried out
as required. DO NOT allow the appliance to be used until the appliance and installation is passed as safe.
If the pilot continues to be extinguished, you must call your installer to check the operation of the complete appliance.
