selecting Fireplace 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

Minimum/Maximum Chimney Height
The minimum height of the chimney, measured from the base of the fireplace to the
flue gas outlet of the termination, is 16 feet for
straight flue or a flue with one elbow set. The
maximum distance between elbows is 6 feet.
For systems with two elbow sets, the minimum
height is 22 feet. The maximum height of any
system is 50 feet. This measurement includes
the fireplace, chimney sections and the height
of the termination assembly at the level of the
flue gas outlet (see Figure 15, page 9).
Framing
1. Frame the opening for the fireplace using
the dimensions shown in Figures 1 and 2.
2. If the fireplace is to be installed directly

Hearth Extension
A hearth extension projecting a minimum of
20" in front of and a minimum of 12" beyond
each side of the fireplace opening is required
to protect combustible floor construction
in front of the fireplace. Fabricate a hearth
extension using a material which meets the
following specifications: a layer of noncombustible, inorganic material having a thermal
conductivity of K=0.84 BTU IN/FT, HR. F (or
less) at 1" thick. For example, if the material
selected has a K factor of 0.25, such as glass
fiber, the following formula would apply:
0.25 x 1.0" = 0.30" thickness required
0.84
Thermal conductivity "K" of materials can be
obtained from the manufacturer or supplier of
the noncombustible material. If the hearth extension is to be covered, use noncombustible
material such as tile, slate, brick, concrete,
metal, glass, marble, stone, etc. Provide a
means to prevent the hearth extension from
shifting and seal gap between the fireplace
frame and hearth extension with a noncombustible material (see Figure 3).
WARNING: Hearth extension
is to be installed only as shown
in Figure 3.

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

Firestop Spacers (FS-10)
Firestop spacers are required at each point
where chimney penetrates a floor space.
Their purpose is to establish and maintain
required clearance between chimney and
combustible materials. When pipe passes
through a framed opening into a living space
above, firestop must be placed onto 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.
To maintain a 2" clearance to pipe on roof with
a pitch, a rectangular opening must be cut.
1. Determine center point through which pipe
will penetrate roof.
2. Determine center point of roof. Pitch is
the distance the roof drops over a given
span, usually 12".
3. Use roof opening chart (Figure 12) to
determine correct opening length and
flashing required.
4. Remove shingles around opening measured. Cut out this section.
5. Add next sections of pipe until end
penetrates roof line. Check to see that
proper clearances are maintained. Extend
chimney by adding sections of double wall
pipe until pipe is minimum of 30" above
highest point of roof cutout. Termination
and chimney must extend a minimum of
36" above highest point where it passes
through roof.

Grouting instructions
Material provided:
1 or 2 - 10 lb. bags of cement (depending
on model)
1 or 2 - 10 lb. bags of sand (depending
on model)
Material required:
1 - Piping bag
1 - Joints striker
1 - Heavy duty mixing bucket
1 - Trowel
1. Moisten brick surface with damp sponge
or spray bottle just prior to application.
When bricks are wet, any excess grout
mixture on bricks will easily wipe off.
2. In a heavy duty mixing bucket, pour 4 ½
cups of water. Add 5 lbs. (half of a bag) of
sand and 5 lbs (half of a bag) of cement.
Mix together well using a power drill with
mixing wand attachment to a yogurt like
consistency. Not adding enough was can
lead to grout falling out after burning.
3. The overall length of piping bag should be
about 16". If the bag is longer than 16",
cut it down to size by removing end with
larger opening. This will make the bag
easier to handle.
4. Put 2 to 3 cups of grout mixture into piping
bag making sure the smaller opening is
downward and over a moist towel to avoid
spilling. Place a wet towel over the bucket
making sure it is directly on the surface of
grout mixture. This will keep the mixture
moist and it will not dry out before use.
5. Begin grouting by first doing a “Filler
Pass”. This is done by filling the joint about
3/4 full with grout mixture. It is important
to work with only 6 bricks at a time so
grout doesn't have time to set up before
striking.
6. Complete a “Finishing Pass” around 6
bricks you just put filler pass around. This
is done by slowly filling in remainder of the
joint with a thick amount of grout mixture.
Mixture should be a little higher than the
brick surface.
7. Using a trowel, remove excess grout mixture by moving trowel in the direction of
the joint. Grout mixture in the joint should
now be flush with brick surface. If not
enough grout is applied into each space,
14
grout may fall out after burning.
8. Using a joint striker, force grout mixture
into joint and sweep back and forth
until grout is smooth and round. If grout
becomes too shallow, add more grout
mixture with piping bag and strike again.
9. Continue procedure around each group of
6 bricks until an entire panel is finished.
10.Using trowel, scrape in direction of joints
to remove any grout that may have collected around bricks during striking. If
desired, take a moist sponge and lightly
sweep over bricks to remove any grout
that may have gotten on bricks. DO NO
PRESS HARD OR RUB IN A CIRCULAR
MOTION. This will press the grout into
brick and turn brick a different color.
Allow 72 hours before operating
fireplace.

Installing Glass Doors
After spring clips have been installed some
adjustments may be needed. Install the doors
using the following steps:
1. With bi-fold doors completely folded, insert
bottom pivot pin into bottom retaining clip
located at far left and far right side of bottom rail. Swing door to vertical position
making sure top pins slide into top door rail.
Door is installed when top door pin snaps
into spring clip (see Figure 24).
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 on door adjustment.
Door Adjustment
Remove doors and slightly loosen upper spring
clips. Replace and fully close doors. Use 1/8"
shims (any material) to level doors. Once proper
setting is achieved, carefully open doors enough
to access top retaining clips with a phillips
screwdriver. Tighten screws. See Figure 25.

Operation and Maintenance
Glass Doors
Glass doors are optional with 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 26).
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.

Operation and maintenance
Continued
IMPORTANT: The glass must be allowed to
warm slowly and evenly. 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 ventfree 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.
damper handle operation
The damper handle opens and closes the
damper blade and is located in the upper rear
side of fireplace just above rear bricks. Rotate
handle counterclockwise slightly to disengage
from retaining bracket. Swing slowly toward
opening of fireplace. Engage handle to secondary bracket located at front of fireplace
inner wall (see Figure 27).
122272-01D
CAUTION: When operating
damper door, please be aware of
sharp edges and corners. Open
and close damper door slowly to
avoid injury.
