About the Fireplace
This Planning guide is intended to assist the Architect, designer, builder and homeowner when choosing the most appropriate installation type and
location for your new Montigo Flush Face Direct Vent fireplace. This guide is not intended to substitute for the Montigo Installation guide for the gas
fireplace of choice. The Operation and Maintenance Manual designed for your Direct Vent fireplace should be followed without exception. For a
listing of all Montigo Direct Vent fireplaces, see:
http://www.montigo.com/index.php?page=residential-gas-fireplaces
Before you begin
The Flush Face Direct Vent fireplace is a vented heating appliance. It
must be installed by a qualified installer . If you have not yet contacted an
installer this would be a perfect time to do so. You can see all the installers
for your State, or Province, at:
http://www.montigo.com/index.php?page=find-a-dealer
What is a direct vent?
The Flush Face Direct Vent fireplace is listed as 'Direct vent' fireplace. This
description means that all the air for combustion comes directly from the
outside atmosphere and all flue gasses are discharged directly to the
outside atmosphere.
What's optional?
There are optional accessories for your Montigo Flush face Direct vent
fireplace, including a fan kit and a surround.
• The fireplace requires 115 volts AC (for electronic ignition and standing
pilot units with fans) to operate. The fankit should be installed before
the fireplace is installed in the building. It is not controlled by the remote
control.
• The surrounds are decorative. They serve the function of framing
the fireplace opening. Montigo currently offers two surrounds; one
manufactured from steel, painted flat black to match the fireplace, or
the other formed from stainless steel. The customer may also choose
to design their own using materials such as stone or tile.
What is in the box?
The Flush Face Direct Vent fireplace currently ships with required amount
of media, one nailing flange extension, and one door opener tool. The
fireplace can be turned on/off via a wall switch supplied by your installer, or
order the optional remote control for units that do not include remotes.
Note: Read the installation / operation instructions for your specific
Montigo Direct Vent fireplace. Vent pipe must also be ordered separately
through your retailer or Montigo.
Note: Only Montigo approved media must be used with Montigo fireplaces.
Use of unapproved media may result in an unsafe condition and/or
damage the fireplace, thereby voiding the warranty. Please contact your
Montigo dealer for a list of approved media. All covered burner fireplaces
must be installed with media covering the burner top except the pilot
cover. Covering the pilot will result in improper operation of the fireplace or
damage.

Venting a Montigo flush face
fireplace
The Montigo Flush face Direct vent fireplaces are zero clearance fireplaces
which can be installed in a variety of locations. For example, it could
be installed against an outside wall for easy rear installation or installed
on an inside wall and the unit could be vented out the rear or side, (12"
maximum pipe length). The Montigo Direct vent fireplace can also be
installed along an inside wall as well. The vent pipe could run vertically,
horizontally or a combination of both, depending on the allowances for
your specific fireplace. (Please refer to installation guide for allowances.)
Currently the Montigo Flush face Direct vent fireplaces are listed for use
with Montigo vent pipe, or approved 5''/8'' co-axial pipe. This vent pipe is
available from your Montigo dealer.*
Note: Read the venting requirement for your specific Montigo Direct Vent
fireplace.
*Please note only Montigo pipe allowed for any power vented system.
See: http://www.montigo.com/index.php?page=find-a-dealer
• The correct installation of the Montigo flush face Direct vent fireplace
is critical to its safe operation and MUST be performed by qualified
personnel.
Although the industry term zero-clearance is used to describe the Direct
vent fireplace of choice, there are some limitations and restrictions. When
this appliance is installed directly on any combustible material other than
wood flooring, it must be installed on a metal or wood panel extending the
full width and depth of the appliance or a fire will occur causing serious
injury, property damage or even death.
• The fireplace may be vented through the top or the rear of the firebox.
When venting out the rear of the fireplace, read your instruction guide to
determine if your fireplace can be vented from this location.
• Montigo flush face fireplaces vary in weight, but the installation type or
specification does not change due to this specification. The Montigo
flush face fireplace must be installed on a surface that provides a level
and solid support structure for a fireplace. Standard 2 x 4 construction
is generally sufficient to install a Montigo flush face fireplace.
Current Montigo Direct Vent fireplaces:
http://www.montigo.com/index.php?page=installation-instructions
Note: If the fireplace is extremely large, as in some of Montigo's Custom
fireplaces, it will require engineering to install and support.
• The Montigo flush face Direct Vent fireplace burns either natural gas
(NG) or liquified petroleum gas (LP) but not both. You must specify your
preference at the time of order.
• The gas connection is accommodated through a cutout located at the
bottom of the fireplace. (See the Figure titled "Gas connection" in your
specific installation instruction guide). Your plumber / gas fitter will have
to bring your gas supply through this hole.
• Note: Read the venting requirement for your specific Montigo Direct Vent
fireplace.
• In all vent configurations, the vent graphs for the Direct Vent installations
are for the proper operation of your Montigo fireplace. Consult the
Installation & Maintenance Manual before any installation has started.
The Instruction guide is the final authority for all vent pipe configurations
and allowances.
• A power vent option is also available which adds even more flexibility
and will change the above limits. Once again, consult the Installation
& Maintenance Manual for the min/max venting specifications for your
model fireplace. If a Power vent is required to complete your project
consult with your Montigo representative:
www.montigo.com/dealer.html.
• Please consult the Installation & Maintenance Manual that arrived with
your flush face Direct Vent fireplace. If you did not receive a guide in the
packaging of your new Montigo fireplace, please see below for a copy
of your fireplace Installation & Maintenance Manual:

• The Montigo flush face Direct vent fireplace can be sheathed in one of
three styles; High, Standard or Overlay. Your choice of style is important
as it affects the finished look of your fireplace and the wall in which it is
placed.

FINISHING
The flush face Direct vent gas fireplace is intended to be covered with
common building materials. As described in the supplied Installation &
Maintenance Manual, these materials must be non-combustible when
placed close to the fireplace opening, please review the finishing section of
your fireplace Installation & Maintenance Manual.

• When using the Standard style (See Figure 2). the nailing flange
extension is not used and ONLY NON-COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS
MAY BE BROUGHT TO THE CABINET NAILING FLANGE. With the
Standard style, all of the black metal fireplace trim can be covered with
either of the optional Montigo surrounds.
• Note: Four sided surround requires a raised installation. Do not
install nailing flange when installing four sided surround. Refer to the
installation and maintenance manual for your fireplace for further
information and framing dimensions.
OVERLAY STYLE
(SHOWN WITH NAILING FLANGE)
FIGURE 1. OVERLAY STYLE
• The Overlay sheathing style (Figure 1). allows you to bring ONLY NONCOMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS all the way down to the top of the fireplace
opening. No material of any kind may extend beyond the top of the
fireplace opening.
The Overlay style requires that you install the fireplace such that the face
is flush with the framing. See Appendix A for further drawings and details.

• With the High style of sheathing, the enclosed nailing flange extension
MUST be used and COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL MUST NOT EXTEND
BELOW THE NAILING FLANGE EXTENSION. (See Figure 3). This
method, while perfectly acceptable, exposes about ten inches of black
metal trim above the glass door. Only part of this trim can be covered
by the optional Montigo surround. This is perhaps the least preferred
method of sheathing because it exposes the largest surface of black trim.

Note: When installing any electronic device over a appliance such as a
gas fireplace, ensure you read all the documentation that arrived with your
electronics. Montigo does not specify or determine what specifications
are acceptable by the manufacturer of this equipment. So we advise the
consumer to read THOROUGHLY all the associated literature packaged
with the appliance. Failing to read this documentation could seriously
affect the warranty of said equipment.
Information to note: See Appendix B
Summary
This planning guide must be used in conjunction with the Installation
Operation / Maintenance Manual with any Montigo Flush face Direct vent
gas fireplace. Together they provide a wealth of information for the typical
installation.
• The Optional sheathing style (Figure 4). allows the option of framing
an opening above the fireplace for Audio-Visual equipment, ie: LCD or
Plasma Monitor (Please refer to the mantle section of your instruction
guide for specific height placement, including dimensions).
• See Page 5 for a description of what construction materials are to be
used around and above the Fireplace.
Note: No material of any kind may extend beyond the top of the fireplace
opening.
• However, if your installation appears to test the limits detailed in these
documents, please Contact your nearest Montigo dealer (list located at

IMPORTANT: A gas fireplace produces a considerable amount of heat, and variables due to a mantle size and height (if any), size of the fireplace (dimensions
and BTU’s) will determine how the heat radiates and dissipates once it leaves the fireplace. Read all the documents, and particularly the Specifications and
location/framing requirements before framing an opening above the fireplace. Montigo will not be held responsible for the damage. We recommend careful
consideration be given to the effects of elevated mantel temperatures which may be in excess of product design, for example: candles, plastic or pictures.
This can cause melting, deformation, discoloration or premature failure of T.V. radio, and other electronic components.
