ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY FIRE!
5 Eco friendly advices for sensible heating
- Environmentally and moneywise common sense.
INA
1). Effective lighting. Use dry brushwood, kindling or a few cross pages of
newspapers.
Open the air control (plenty of air for the burning), to ensure that the
heated wood is burning rapidly.
2). Use only a little wood at time when burning - this gives the best combus
tion.
Remember plenty of air, each time new firewood is put into the oven.
3). The Air control should be adjusted when the flames blush down, to reduce
the air supply.
EM
4). When only glowing charcoals remain, reduce the air-supply further, so heat
ing demand is just covered. With a lower air supply, charcoal will burn
slower and the heat loss through the chimney is reduced.
We cannot be held responsible for any misprints.
PR
EL
5). Use only dry wood - ie wood with a humidity of 15 to 22 percent.

RY
The following pages give instructions for the safe and proper installation of this heating
appliance in the UK. These instructions cover the basic principles of installation, although
detail may need slight modification to suit particular local site conditions. In all cases the
installation must comply with current UK Building Regulations, Local Authority Byelaws
and other specifications or regulations as they affect the installation of the stove. Please
note that it is a legal requirement under England and Wales Building Regulations that
the installation of the stove is either carried out under Local Authority Building Control
approval or is installed by a Competent Person registered with a Government approved
Competent Persons Scheme. HETAS Ltd operate such a Scheme and a listing of their Registered Competent Persons can be found on their website at www.hetas.co.uk.
INA
It should be noted that the current Building Regulations requirements are given in Approved Document J. These requirements may also be met by adopting the relevant recommendations given in British Standards BS 8303, BS 6461 and BS 7566.
WARNING: Health and Safety Advice Notice
The installation of this heating appliance is governed by the Health and Safety at Work
Act 1974. It is the responsibility of the installer to ensure that all requirements of this Act
are met during the installation works. Attention is drawn in particular to the following:
The appliance is a heavy item and adequate facilities must be available for
loading, unloading and site handling.
EM

This stove must not be installed into a chimney that serves any other heating appliance.
There must not be an extractor fan fitted in the same room as the stove as this can
cause the stove to emit fumes into the room.
If this appliance is installed into an existing chimney, the chimney must first be swept
and examined for soundness and suitability before the appliance is installed (see also
section headed “Chimney”).
English
RAIS - manual for RAIS 500
Convection
RY
RAIS stoves are convection stoves. This means that the stove’s back and side panels are
not over-heated. Convection means that there is a circulation of air, which ensures that
the heat is distributed more evenly throughout the entire room. The cold air is sucked in
at the base of the stove up through the convection channel, which runs along the stove’s
combustion chamber. The heated air pours out at the top of the stove, which ensures a
circulation of warm air throughout the room.
Chimney
INA
The stoves are equipped with “cold” door handles – RAIS special feature – which means
you could almost do away with gloves. Be aware, however, that all exterior surfaces become hot during use - so take extreme care.
EM
The chimney is the driving force which makes the stove function. In order for the stove to
perform satisfactorily the chimney height must be sufficient to ensure the correct draught
of 14 to 18 Pa so as to clear the products of combustion and prevent problems of smoke
emanating into the room when firing.
NOTE: A chimney height of not less than 4.5 metres measured vertically from the outlet
of the stove to the top of the chimney should be satisfactory. Alternatively the calculation procedure given in BS 5854:1980 may be used as the basis for deciding whether a
particular chimney design will provide sufficient draught.
The outlet from the chimney should be above the roof of the building in accordance with
the provisions of Building Regulations Approved Document J.
PR
EL
If installation is into an existing chimney then it must be sound and have no cracks or
other faults which might allow fumes into the house. Older properties, especially, may
have chimney faults or the cross section may be too large i.e. more than 230 mm x 230
mm. Remedial action should be taken, if required, seeking expert advice, if necessary. If it
is found necessary to line the chimney then a flue liner suitable for solid fuel must be used
in accordance with Building Regulations Approved Document J.
Any existing chimney must be clear of obstruction and have been swept clean immediately before installation of the stove. If the stove is fitted in place of an open fire then the
chimney should be swept one month after installation to clear any soot falls which may
have occurred due to the difference in combustion between the stove and the open fire.
If there is no existing chimney then either a prefabricated block chimney in accordance
with Building Regulations Approved Document J or a twin walled insulated stainless steel
flue to BS 4543 can be used. These chimneys must be fitted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and Building Regulations.
7
English
RAIS - manual for RAIS 500
A single wall metal fluepipe is suitable for connecting the stove to the chimney but is not
suitable for using for the complete chimney. The chimney and connecting fluepipe must
have a minimum diameter of 150 mm and its dimension should be not less than the size
of the outlet socket of the stove which is 150 mm in diameter. Any bend in the chimney
or connecting fluepipe should not exceed 45°. 90°bends should not be used.
RY
Combustible material should not be located where the heat dissipating through the walls
of fireplaces or flues could ignite it. Therefore when installing the stove in the presence
of combustible materials due account must be taken of the guidance on the separation
of combustible material given in Building Regulations Approved Document J and also in
these stove instructions.
INA
If it is found that there is excessive draught in the chimney then either an adjustable flue
damper or alternatively a draught stabiliser should be fitted. The adjustable flue damper
should not close off the flue entirely but should in its closed position leave a minimum
continuous opening free area of at least 20 % of the total cross sectional area of the flue
or fluepipe.
Adequate provision e.g. easily accessible soot door or doors must be provided for sweeping the chimney and connecting fluepipe.
You should also familiarise yourself with the draught conditions for chimneys with 2 flues.
EM
The flue outlet spigot is 150 mm in diameter.
For strong draughts, the chimney or flue should be fitted with a draught stabiliser. In
which case, it is important to ensure that there is a free flow-through area of minimum
20 cm² when the regulating gate is shut. Otherwise, the fuel energy may not be used
optimally. If, at any time, you are unsure about the condition of the chimney, you should
contact a chimney sweep.

Installation
It is prohibited to carry out unauthorised alterations to the stove.
RY
There must be plenty of fresh air in the room where the stove is being installed, in order
to ensure proper combustion. Note that any mechanical exhaust ventilation - e.g. an
extraction hood - may reduce the air supply. Any air grates must be placed in such a manner, that the air supply is not blocked.
The stove is equipped with four convection air outlets, which may be connected with suitable air ducts to other rooms.
INA
Building Regulations Approved document J gives specific guidance on the required
permanent ventilation into the room for combustion air of solid fuel appliances.
The floor structure must be able to carry the weight of the wood burning stove, as well as
the weight of a chimney, if necessary.
EM
When you choose where to set up your RAIS wood burning stove, you should consider
the heat distribution to the other rooms. This will enable you to get the best use out of
your stove. The stove should be set up at a safe distance from inflammable materials. See
the manufacturer’s plate on the wood burning stove.
Installation of stove:
NOTE:Decision to be taken concerning the placement of the inlets and outlets of the
convection system. The area requirements for convection holes to be kept.

Installation distance in case of combustible wall
To find out whether the wall next to where the stove is going to be installed is flammable,
you should contact your building contractor or the local building authorities.
RY
The hearth should be able to accommodate the weight of the stove. The chimney must
be independently supported by wall brackets or a ceiling support plate. The weight of the
stove is indicated in the brochure.
The stove should always be installed on a non-combustible hearth of a size and construction that is in accordance with the provisions of the current UK Building Regulations Approved Document J.
INA
If the stove is to be installed on a wooden floor, it must be covered with a noncombustible
material at least 12mm thick, in accordance with UK Building Regulations Approved Document J, to a distance of 300 mm in front of the stove and 150 mm to each side measuring
from the door of the combustion chamber.
The clearance distances to combustible material beneath, surrounding or upon the hearth
and walls adjacent to the hearth should comply with the guidance on the separation of
combustible material given in UK Building Regulations Approved Document J and also in
these stove instructions.
EM
For the Installer
Finally before firing the stove for the first time a check should be made to ensure that the
assembly and stove installation has been satisfactory and that there are no leaks in any
seals in the appliance and appliance connections to the chimney.
PR
EL
Ensure that the appliance and chimney flue are functioning correctly before finally handing over to the user. If necessary read the later parts of this manual for guidance on care
required when first lighting.
Inform the user that the appliance has been commissioned and ready to use and give
instruction on the safe operation of the stove.
These Instructions must be left with the user and the user should be instructed to keep
them in a safe place.

Operating instructions
Please note that HETAS Ltd Appliance Approval only covers the use of dry seasoned wood logs on this appliance. HETAS Ltd Approval does not cover the use
of other fuels either alone or mixed with the wood logs, nor does it cover instructions for the use of other fuels.
RY
Fuel
The stove is designed and approved in accordance with EN 13240 and NS 3058 for stoking split, dried firewood. The firewood must have a water content of 15-22% and its max.
length should be the length of the combustion chamber minus 50-60 mm.
INA
Stoking with wet firewood causes both soot, environmental pollution and bad fuel
economy. Freshly cut wood contains approx. 50-70% water and is thoroughly unsuitable
for stoking. Count min. 1 year of storage time for newly cut wood before using.
Wood with a diameter of more than 100 mm should be split. Regardless of wood size, it
should always have at least one surface area free of bark.
We do not recommend stoking with painted, laminated or impregnated wood, wood with
a synthetic surface, painted refuse wood, chipboard, plywood, domestic waste, paper briquettes and pit coal, as this will produce malodorous smoke, which could be poisonous.
EM
When firing with the above-mentioned items and amounts larger than those recommended, the stove is subjected to a larger amount of heat, which results in a higher chimney
temperature and lower efficiency. This can result in the stove and chimney becoming damaged and would void the warranty.
The calorific value of the firewood is closely connected to the moisture level of the
firewood. Moist firewood has a low heat value. The more water the wood contains, the
more energy it takes for this water to vaporise, resulting in this energy being lost.
ONLY USE RECOMMENDED FUELS

RAIS - manual for RAIS 500
Drying and storage
Regulating the combustion air
RY
Drying wood takes time: proper air drying takes approx. 2 years.
Here are some tips:
Store the wood sawn, split and stacked in an airy, sunny place, which is protected against
rain (the south side of the house is particularly suitable).
Store the firewood stacks at a hand’s breadth apart, as this ensures that the air flowing
through takes the moisture with it. Avoid covering the firewood stacks with plastic, as
this prevents the moisture from escaping. It is a good idea to bring the firewood into the
house 2-3 days before you need it.
INA
All RAIS stoves are equipped with a one-handed operating lever for regulating the damper. The stove-specific regulating mechanisms can be seen on the diagrams.
Primary air is the combustion air added to the primary combustion zone, i.e. the bed of
glowing embers. This air, which is cold, is only used in the lighting stage.
Secondary air is the air which is added in the gas combustion zone, i.e. air which contributes to the combustion of the pyrolysis gasses (preheated air, which is used for the
cleaner glass system and combustion). This air is sucked through the damper under the
combustion chamber and is pre-heated through the side channels and then emitted as
hot scavenging air onto the glass. The hot air rinses the glass and keeps it soot-free.
EM
The tertiary channel, which can be seen at the the top of the combustion chamber towards the back, serves to combust the final gas residues.
By setting the interval between position 1 and 2, the energy content in the firewood is
used optimally, as there is oxygen for combustion and for the burning of the pyrolysis
gasses. When the flames are a clear yellow the damper has been set correctly. Finding the
correct position comes with time after you have used for stove for a while.
PR
EL
It is not recommended that you turn it down completely. A mistake commonly made is
shutting the damper too early because it feels too hot. This results in dark smoke emanating from the chimney and in the calorific value of the firewood not being used to its
fullest.
Room ventilation and stoves
There must not be an extractor fan fitted in the same room as the stove as this can cause
the stove to emit smoke and fumes into the room.
The stove requires a permanent and adequate air supply in order for it to operate safely
and efficiently.
In accordance with current Building Regulations the installer may have fitted a permanent
air supply vent into the room in which the stove is installed to provide combustion air. This
air vent should not under any circumstances be shut off or sealed.

Using the wood burning stove
Adjustment of the air damper - the damper has 3 settings
Position 1
Position 2
INA
RY
The damper is almost closed meaning that there is a minimal air intake.
Position 3
EM
Pull the lever until first click. This position gives full secondary air.
During normal stoking the lever is set between position 1 and 2.
When the flames are clear and yellow, the damper is set correcly, i.e. resulting in a slow/
optimal burning.
PR
EL
Pull the lever until next click.
The air damper is completely open and gives full primary and secondary air. The position is
for the lighting stage and is not used under normal operation.

RAIS - manual for RAIS 500
Control
If the ash is white and the walls in the combustion chamber sott-free after the stove has
been used, the air regulation was set correctly and the wood was sufficiently dry.
First usage
RY
A careful start pays off. Start with a small fire, so that the wood burning stove can get
accustomed to the high temperature. This gives the best start and any damage is avoided.
Be aware that a strange but harmless odour and smoke concoction may emanate from
the surface of the stove, the first time you fire up. This is because the paint and materials need to harden. The odour disappears quickly, but you should check the ventilation
and draught, if possible. See also, the IMPORTANT warning notice below about persistent
fumes.
INA
During this process you must be careful not to touch the painted surfaces, and it is recommended that you regularly open and close the door to prevent the door seal from sticking.
The stove may also produce “clicking noises” during heating and cooling, caused by the
large temperature differences which the material is subjected to.
Never use any type of liquid fuel for kindling or maintaining the fire. You could be at risk
of explosion.
The stove gets very hot when in use always wear protective gloves when tending the
stove.
EM
If the stove has not been used for a while, follow the steps as if you were using it for the
first time.
IMPORTANT - Warning Note!
PR
EL
Properly installed, operated and maintained this appliance will not emit fumes into the
dwelling. Occasional fumes from de-ashing and re-fuelling may occur. However, persistent
fume emission is potentially dangerous and must not be tolerated. If fume emission does
persist, the following immediate actions should be taken:
(a) Open doors and windows to ventilate room.
(b) Let the fire out or eject and safely dispose of fuel from the appliance.
(c) Check for flue or chimney blockage, and clean if required.
(d) Do not attempt to relight the fire until the cause of the fume emission has been identified and corrected. If necessary seek expert advice.
IMPORTANT - Warning Note!
Do not use an aerosol spray on or near the stove when it is alight.
IMPORTANT - Safety advice!
When using the stove in situations where children, aged and/or infirm persons are present a fireguard must be used to prevent accidental contact with the stove. The fireguard
should be manufactured in accordance with BS 8423:2002 (Replaces BS 6539).

Lighting and fuelling
TIPS before firing up:
Open a door or window close to the wood burning stove.
RY
If there is a “storm” in the stove coming from the chimney, it is advisable to place a
screwed-up piece of newspaper between the upper baffle plate and the chimney, set
the paper on fire, and wait until you hear a “rumbling” noise in the chimney.. This
means that there definitely is a draught in the chimney and you avoid smoke in the room.
“Top-Down” lighting
INA
Start by placing 3-4 pieces wood - approx. 1½-2 kiligram - in the bottom of the burning
chamber.
Place approx. 1 kilogram of firewood, split into kindling sticks, and a couple of alcohol
briquettes or similar (1-2). Set the air damper to fully open position.
Light the fire and close the door (3), leaving the door ajar approx. 10-15 mm.
When the flames are clear - after approx. 10-15 min. - close the door completely(4).
Damper - see adjustment of air damper.
When the last flames are extinguished and there is a nice layer of embers (5) - add 2-3
pieces of wood.
Leave the door ajar (6) until the fire has a good hold close the door completely.
Damper - see adjustment of air damper.
Note!
EM
After approx. 5 min. - or when the flames are clear and stable - close the damper
gradually.
Keep an eye on the stove when lighting.
PR
EL
During operation the door should always remain shut.

Cleaning and care
During cleaning and care, the stove must be cold.
RY
Woodstoves should be serviced every summer so they are ready for the winter season.
Grates, firebricks, baffles, rope seals should all be checked that they are in good condition,
Chimney and flues should be swept at least once a year, some liner manufacturers require
their to be swept twice a year.
Paint finish
Glass
INA
The appliance has been coated with a high temperature paint which can last for years. Do
not clean with a damp cloth or any cleaning products as they can cause rust or discolouration. Only clean when cold use a brush with soft bristles or dust with a lint free cloth. Only
re-spray when necessary.
EM
Most woodstoves use a glass product called ceramic. This glass is resistant to heat but
requires cleaning to keep its appearance. Soot or opaque marks can easily cleaned if the
marks are fresh, however if you leave the glass dirty for any length of time the acid from
the wood can etch the surface of the glass. Permantley(wet unseasoned wood, soft wood
such as used in the building industri, pallet wood should be avoided)
Only clean when cold
Use only stove glass cleaners to re-move heavy tar / soot deposits. All other marks can
normally be removed with a damp cloth, then dry with a clean cloth or newspaper, do not
let the glass dry before applying a dry clean cloth.
With more stubborn marks i.e. Opaque areas / frosting, you need put a small amount of
wood ash on a clean damp cloth. If the opaque mark / frosting, doesn’t come out, use a
cleaning pad called a “Dry Wiper” to reduce or remove the mark.
Cleaning the combustion chamber:
Scrape/shovel the ash out and store it in a non-flammable container until it has cooled
down. You can dispose of ash with your normal household waste.
REMEMBER!! Never remove all the ashes from the combustion chamber - the wood
PR
EL
will burn at its best with a layer of ashes of approx. 20 mm.
Prolonged periodes of non-use:
If the stove is to be left unused for a prolonged period of time then it should be given
a thorough clean to remove ash and unburned fuel residues. To enable a good flow of
air through the appliance to reduce condensation and subsequent damage, leave the air
controls fully open.
Prior to a new heating season, it should be checked that the chimney and smoke gas
connector are not blocked.
28

RAIS - manual for RAIS 500
RY
Cleaning af the flue ways
Remove the baffle plate by pushing up on one
side - so it comes off the track - and gently tilt
the other side toward the combustion chamber.
Gently take out the baffle plate.
INA
Remove dirt and dust and put the parts back in
reverse order.
Be aware that the baffle plate goes down and
keeps the rear fire brick firmly.
PR
EL
EM
Grab with both hands and gently pull the baffle plate into place so that it sits in the
groove again.

RAIS - manual for RAIS 500
Interruption of operation
Smoke spillage around door:
RY
Could be due to too low draught in the chimney <12Pa
- Check whether the flue or chimney is blocked
- check whether the extraction hood is switched on; if it is, switch it off and open a window/door in the proximity of the stove for a short while.
Soot on glass:
INA
Could be because the firewood is too wet.
- make sure that the stove is heated properly when firing up, prior to closing the door
Could be because the damper regulation is too low.
A stove burning too strong could be caused by:
- leak around the door seal
- chimney draught too large >22 Pa, draught control regulator should be installed.
EM
A stove burning too weakly could be caused by:
- too little firewood
- too little air supply for room ventilation
- unclean smoke channels
- leaky chimney
- leakage between chimney and flue
If your stove continues to malfunction, we recommend that you contact your RAIS distributor or chimney sweep.
IMPORTANT!! To ensure safe burning there must be clear yellow flames or clear embers
PR
EL
at all times. The firewood should not be smoldering. Therefore you should never completely cut off the air supply.
WARNING!!
In case of chimney fire:
- shut off all air supply on the wood burning stove
- contact the fire department
- never attempt to put out fire with water!
- afterwards, you should ask your chimney sweeper to check the stove and chimney
