CAUTION
All Fireplaces listed for use with the DVVK-4F or the DVVK-5F will operate safely when installed in accordance
with this instruction manual. Read all instruction before starting installation, then follow these instructions
carefully to maximize fireplace performance and safety. Report damaged parts to your dealer.
WARNING
Any common venting of the gas appliance using the DV vent kit with other gas appliances is not allowed. Do not
connect this appliance to a chimney flue servicing a separate solid fuel-burning appliance.
WARNING
Always maintain minimum clearances around vent systems. The minimum clearance to combustibles for
horizontal vent pipe is 3 inches at the top and 1 inch at the sides and bottom of the vent system until the
flue penetrates the nearest vertical wall. FOR WALL FIRESTOPS AND VERTICAL RUNS ONLY, maintain a 1 inch
minimum clearance from all sides of the vent. Do not pack the open air spaces around the fireplace or flue with
insulation or other materials. Any horizontal run must have a 1/4” rise for every one (1) foot of run towards the
vent termination. Never install the vent level or downward.
WARNING
Failure to follow these instructions may create a possible fire hazard and will void the warranty.
WARNING
Contact your Local Building and Fire Officials about restrictions and installation inspections in your area.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
•
The termination cap MUST be vented directly to the outside.
The termination kit MUST NEVER be connected to a chimney flue(s) servicing a separate solid-fuel burning appliance
or any other appliances.
•
Termination cap MUST NOT be recessed into a wall or siding. The flexible vent pipe cannot be intermingled with any of
the rigid vent pipe section. DO NOT connect two sections of
flexible vent pipe together to achieve a longer length without
approved connectors.
•
•
The installation must conform with local codes or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1 (in the United States) or with the current installation
code CAN/CGA - B149 (in Canada).
Only Direct Vent fireplaces approved for use with DVVK-4F
and DVVK-5F termination kits shall be used. No other venting
systems or components may be used. See PARTS LIST ILLUSTRATIONS section for a list of approved vent components.
BEFORE YOU START:
Plan your installation. Set unit in place and survey how best to
vent the unit. Select the appropriate termination kit and vent pipe
for the installation. Read these instructions and the fireplace
installation manual before installing unit and vent system.

•
Horizontal runs must be supported every 3 feet using wall
straps. Vertical runs must be supported every 8 feet using
wall straps. Slip wall straps loosely on to pipe. Attach straps
to framing members using nails or screws. Tighten nut/bolt to
secure pipe.
•
When installing the termination cap, mount it so the water
drain holes in the base and vent pipes are to the bottom.
•
The fireplace and venting system should be inspected before
initial use and at least annually by a qualified field service
person. Inspect the external vent cap on a regular basis
to make sure that no debris is interfering with the airflow.
Inspect entire venting system to ensure proper function.
•
Please refer to the fireplace instructions for information on
Termination Cap clearances and placement on the exterior
of the building.
After vent configuration has been decided, stretch the flex pipe
components out, then trim off what will not be needed. A temporary fit up will determine this. Once the vent length has been
determined and cut off, attach the flue vent and the inlet vent flex
to the termination cap first. Next, feed the pipe (with terminal)
through from the outside and attach connections at the fireplace.

Step-By-Step Installation For
DV Horizontal Flex Vent Kit
6.
1.
Unpack vent components and check all items for shipping
damage.
2. For this venting system to operate as designed, it is dependent on the use of all parts and procedures detailed in
these instructions. Failure to follow these instructions may
potentially affect the performance of this vent system and the
attached appliance.
3. As per the fireplace instructions, replace the existing fireplace vent adapter with the 7” diameter flex vent fireplace
adapter included in the vent kit (DVVK-4F only). Install the
adapter collar with the screws removed from the fireplace.
NOTE: If installing the DVVK5F kit, use the existing 8” diameter vent adapter collar supplied with the fireplace to connect
the 8” diameter flex vent.
4a. Install the Wall Firestop/Thimble to the framed wall assembly
using common nails (not supplied) as required through the
wall. Refer to the venting charts in the fireplace manual to
determine the proper height and size of the vent opening.
(For minimum framed opening see fireplace manual).

Locate the inner flex vent which has a pre-assembled flue
collar connector and attach the spacer springs. The springs
should be spaced evenly apart starting at 12 inches from the
fireplace flue collar. See Figure 2.

Attach the flex flue (non-connector end) to the Termination
Cap. Use silicone sealant on connection, and secure with the
4” or 5” dia band clamp.
8. Slip the outer flex vent over the inner flex flue (with spacer
springs), then secure the Inlet Flex vent to the Termination
Cap. Use silicone sealant on connection, and secure with a
7” or 8” dia band clamp.
9. Feed the Flex pipe (with cap attached) through the wall
thimble assembly from the outside.
10. Secure the termination cap to the house exterior using four
1/8 x 3” long screws. Be sure to install the Deflector Shield
with the two screws at the top of the termination base. See
Figure 3.

4b. Install the Wall Firestop/Thimble with the top clearance tab to
the inside of the framed wall opening. Install the mating telescope thimble to the inside thimble, and secure the thimble
wall plate to the exterior of the framed wall opening.
5. Determine the length of the vent that is needed, allow slightly
more vent then required. Stretch the inner and outer flex vent
out to 48 inches, then, trim off the extra length of vent not
needed.
Note: If the venting is too long, trim off the excess venting
as needed, however, make sure you leave enough extra to
make the connections at the termination cap.

11. Add sealant to the flue adapter collar, then insert the adapter
collar to the flue collar on the fireplace. Secure the flue vent
collar using four #6 x 1/2” self tapping screws provided.
12. Feed the outer flex vent over the inner flex flue vent and
secure to the 7” or 8” dia. fireplace collar. Tighten the band
clamp, then seure the clamp to the fireplace with (4) evenly
spaced #6 x 1/2 self tapping screws provided.
13. With the fireplace secured, check to make sure that the
required rise (1/4” per ft.) of the vent is maintained from the
fireplace and upward through the thimble assembly and
termination cap.
