HY-C STOVE BOARD / FLOOR PROTECTOR 8 WALL SHIELD ND"
1. The HY-C Stove Board/Floor Protector is intended for use with only UL Listed Solid Fuel Type Room Heaters or Fireplace Stoves.
2. A HY-C Stove Board/Floor Protector is intended for use as a floor protector in place of one layer of 3/8°-thick millboard having a thermal
conductivity of K=0.84 BTU in/ft hr F when specified in the installation instructions of the UL listed Fireplace Stove or Solid Fuel Type Room
Heater. When the UL listed Appliance requires a thicker floor protector then 3/8" millboard the floor protector can be constructed by use of one
additional Stove Board/Floor Protector for each 3/8” increment, or a combination of Stove Boards and millboard (having K=0.84 Btu int? hr F). If
the stove board/floor protector or hearth extension material is specified as one layer of 3/8 inch (0.375 inch) thick millboard with a K factor of
0.84, the following calculations apply:
C=K/ (thickness) = 0.84/0.375 = 2.24 for 3/8 inch thick millboard.
R=1/K = 1/0.84 = 1.19 per inch, or R1t/C = 1/2.24 = 0.45 for 3/8 inch thick millboard.
An alternate common brick with a K of 5.0 would require a thickness as follows:
Required thickness = (K of brick/K of millboard) x (thickness of millboard)
Required thickness = (5/0.84) X (3/8 inch) = 2.23 inches of brick.
3. Refer to the Installation Instructions of the UL Listed Solid Fuel Type Room Heater or Fireplace Stove for the minimum floor area requiring
protection for the installation of the Listed appliance. Protection of the area designated can be accomplished by the use of one or a combination
of the following sizes of HY-C Stove Board/Floor Protectors: 28" X 32"; 32" X 42"; 36" X 36"; 36" X 48"; 36"X 52"; 18" X 48" or 48" X 48".
4. To join two or more HY-C Stove Board/Floor Protectors side by side, use HY-C Stove Board Connector Kit No- ULCK. This kit contains connector
clips to join two of the largest HY-C Stove Board/Floor Protectors. (It may be necessary to clip and raise the metal lip of the HY-C Stove
Board/Floor Protector, at the edge only, to start installation of the clips. The clips may be gently tapped into place with a hammer. See Fig. 1).
To prevent hot embers or coals from coming into contact with combustible
construction below the joined floor protectors, the connector clips supplied with the
HY-C Stove Board Connector Kit No. ULCK (CK-1) must be installed according to
Stove Board instructions so that no combustible construction can become exposed
after installation of the floor protectors.
FACE OF 5. For Best Results, the HY-C Stove Board/Floor Protector should be installed on a flat
FLOOR solid surface. Carpeting and padding should be removed where the floor protector is
re intended to be installed.
6. The HY-C Stove Board/Floor Protector must not be cut or trimmed.
7. If an electrical blower is used in conjunction with the UL Listed Fireplace Stove or Solid Fuel Type Room Heater, HY-C Grounding Kit No. ULEG
is required to ground the HY-C Stove Board/Floor Protector and electrical blower in accordance with the National Electrical Code.

8. When using the HY-C Stove Board/Floor CLEARANCE REDUCTION CHART
Protector as a wall shield, they are to be
installed to provide continuous protection from
the floor to within 1 to 3 inches below the ceiling.
- CAUTION: Maintain a 1 inch minimum to a 3
inch maximum air space between the top of the
wall shield and the ceiling. When using HY-C
Stove Board/Floor Protectors as a wall shield, as
described here, the minimum clearance to the
black wall marked on UL listed solid fuel room
heaters my be reduced to a maximum of 58
percent, providing the reduced controlling
clearance was not less than 12 inches.
Controlling clearance is the minimum clearance
which locates that part of the room heater
assembly (chimney connector or back of unit)
closest to combustible construction. Example:
36” required could be 15". See Clearance >, — NIT WEL

10. After holes are drilled, remove board and put plastic inserts into the holes in the wall. See Fig. 3.
11. Tack the metal spacers in position through holes provided, directly over each insert, using carpet tacks included in kit.
12. Replace board in position against spacers and screw in place using screws and washers provided. Do not over tighten.
13. For the area to be covered for your installation see sketches below. The coverage areas are minimum.
