Fireplace Installation
selecting location
To determine the safest and most efficient location
for the fireplace, you must take into consideration
the following guidelines:
1. The location must allow for proper clearances
(see Figures 1 and 2).
2. Consider a location where the fireplace will
not be affected by drafts, air conditioning
ducts, windows or doors.
3. A location that avoids the cutting of joists or
roof rafters will make installation easier.
4. An outside air kit is available with this fireplace
(see Optional Outside Air Kit on page 6).

Chimney Pipe
The DESA chimney system consists of 12", 18",
24", 36" and 48" snap-lock, double-wall pipe
segments, planned for maximum adaptability
to individual site requirements. Actual lengths
gained after fitting overlaps must be taken into
consideration (lineal gain) and are given in the
lineal gain chart (see Figure 6). Lineal Gain is the
actual measurable length of a part after two or more
parts are connected. For Canada, use chimney parts
designated "HT".
WARNING: The opening in the
collar around the chimney at the
top of the fireplace must not be
obstructed. Never use blown insulation to fill the chimney enclosure.

Assembly and installation of
double wall chimney system
Each double wall chimney section consists of a
galvanized outer pipe, a stainless steel inner flue
pipe and a wire spacer. The pipe sections must be assembled independently as the chimney is installed.
When connecting chimney directly to the fireplace,
the inner flue pipe section must be installed first
with the lanced side up. The outer pipe section can
then be installed over the flue pipe section with the
hemmed end up. Press down on each pipe section
until the lances securely engage the hem on the fireplace starter. The wire will assure the proper spacing
between the inner and outer pipe sections.
Continue to assemble chimney sections as outlined
above, making sure that both the inner and outer
pipe sections are locked together. When installing double wall snap-lock chimney together, it is
important to assure the joint between the chimney
sections is locked. Check by pulling chimney
upward after locking. The chimney will not come
apart if properly locked. It is not necessary to add
screws to keep the chimney together (exception,
see Figure 9, page 8).

Firestop Spacers (FS-10)
Firestop spacers are required at each point where
the chimney penetrates a floor space. Their purpose
is to establish and maintain the required clearance
between the chimney and the combustible materials.
When the pipe passes through a framed opening into
a living space above, the firestop must be placed onto
the ceiling from below as shown in Figure 10.
They also provide complete separation from one floor
space to another or attic space as required by most
codes. When the double wall pipe passes through a
framed opening into an attic space, the firestop must
be placed into an attic floor as shown in Figure 11.
Penetrating the roof
To maintain a 1" clearance to the pipe on a roof
with a pitch, a rectangular opening must be cut.
1. Determine the center point through which the
pipe will penetrate the roof.
2. Determine the center point of the roof. Pitch
is the distance the roof drops over a given
span, usually 12". A 6/12 pitch means that
the roof drops 6" for each 12" one measure
horizontally down from the roof rafters.
3. Use the roof opening chart (Figure 12) to
determine the correct opening length and
flashing required.
4. Remove the shingles around the opening
measured. Cut out this section.
5. Add the next sections of the pipe until the
end penetrates the roof line. Check to see that
the proper clearances are maintained. Extend
chimney by adding sections of double wall
pipe until pipe is minimum of 30" above the
highest point of the roof cutout. Termination
and chimney must extend a minimum of
36" above the highest point where it passes
through the roof.

Installing glass doors
Spring clips have been installed but some adjustments may be needed. If doors do not close properly
or do not appear straight, see Door Adjustment.
1. With bi-fold doors completely folded, insert
bottom pivot pin into pivot hole located near
bottom corner of front face opening and swing
door to vertical position making sure top pins
slide into door track. Door is installed when
top door pin snaps into spring clip.
2. Repeat step 1 for remaining door.
If you find the doors do not close properly or do
not appear level or straight, proceed with section

Door Adjustment
Remove doors and slightly loosen lower pivot clips
and upper spring clips. Replace doors and fully close
them. Use 1/8" shims (any material) to level doors.
Once proper setting is achieved, carefully open doors
enough so that you can access spring clips with a phillips screwdriver. Tighten screws. See Figure 23.
Glass Doors
Glass doors are optional with the fireplace. When
fireplace is in operation, doors must be fully
opened or fully closed position only or a fire hazard
may be created (see Figure 24).
A fireplace equipped with glass doors operates
much differently than a fireplace with an open
front. A fireplace with glass doors has a limited
amount of air for combustion.
Excessive heat within the fireplace can result if too
large a fire is built or if combustion air gate is not
completely open. The following tips should be followed to assure that both the fireplace and glass door
retain their beauty and function properly. Both the flue
damper and glass doors must be fully opened before
starting fire. This will provide sufficient combustion
air and maintain safe temperatures in firebox.
IMPORTANT: The glass must be allowed to warm
slowly and evenly. The tempered glass will withstand
a gradual temperature rise to 550° F, which is more
than a normal fire will generate. Such materials as
pitch/wax laden logs, very dry mill end lumber and
large amounts of paper or cardboard boxes can create
an excessively hot fire and should not be burned in
this fireplace. Always keep the fire well back from the
doors and never allow flames to contact the glass.
WARNING: Fireplaces
equipped with glass doors
should be operated only with
doors fully opened or doors fully
closed. Doors, if left partly open,
may draw gas and flame out of
the fireplace opening creating
risks of both fire and smoke.

Cleaning Glass
Clean glass with any commercial glass cleaner or
soap and water. Do not use any abrasive material
to clean glass. Do not clean glass with any cool
water if glass is still hot from the fire and smoke.
A gas line or gas log lighter may be installed for the
purpose of installing a vented or vent-free decorative gas appliance incorporating an automatic
shutoff device and complying with the Standard
for Decorative Gas Appliances for Installation in
Vented Fireplaces, ANSI Z21.60 or American Gas
Association draft requirements for Gas Fired Log
Lighters for Wood Burning Fireplaces, Draft NO.
4 dated August, 1993.
If you wish to install an unvented (vent-free) gas
log set, only unvented gas log sets which have been
found to comply with the standard for unvented
room heaters, ANSI Z21.11.2 are to be installed
in this fireplace.
