F. Moisture Resistance

This outdoor appliance will shed moderate amounts of water, but is not waterproof. This appliance must be enclosed or covered with noncombustible fi nish material and all joints sealed to prevent water infi ltration.

The fi rebox will not perform as an exterior wall. Moisture penetration must be considered for construction that places the appliance in structure walls or on moisture sensitive surfaces.

When installed on exterior walls: Hearth & Home Technologies recommends that the chase be constructed outside the structure’s weather envelope. Where the platform meets the wall, use a fl ashing detail similar to that required for attached decks. Chase platforms, including hearths should slope away from the structure at 1/8 in. to 1/4 in. per foot. The appliance can be shimmed level.
