Fireplace Installation
selecting 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,
page 6).

Minimum/Maximum Chimney Height
The minimum height of chimney, measured
from base of fireplace to flue gas outlet of
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 fireplace,
chimney sections and height of termination
assembly at level of the flue gas outlet (see
Figure 15, page 9).
Framing
1. Frame opening for fireplace using dimensions shown in Figures 1 and 2.
2. If fireplace is to be installed directly on
carpeting, tile (other than ceramic) or any
combustible material other than wood
flooring, fireplace must be installed on a
metal or wood panel extending full width
and depth of fireplace.
3. Set fireplace directly in front of this opening and slide unit back until nailing flanges
touch side framing.
4. Check level of fireplace and shim with
sheet metal if necessary.
5. Before securing fireplace to prepared
framing, ember protector (provided) must
be placed between hearth extension (not
supplied) and under bottom front edge of
fireplace to protect against glowing embers
falling through. If fireplace is to be installed
on a raised platform, a Z-type ember protector (not supplied) must be fabricated to
fit your required platform height. The ember
protector should extend under the fireplace
a minimum of 1 1/2". The ember protector
should be made of galvanized sheet metal
(28 gauge minimum to prevent corrosion.
6. Using screws or nails, secure fireplace to
framing through flanges located on sides
of fireplace.

Hearth Extension
A hearth extension projecting a minimum of
20" in front of and a minimum of 12" beyond
each side of fireplace opening is required to
protect combustible floor construction in front
of 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 hearth extension from
shifting and seal gap between 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.
Fireplace Front
Mantels
A mantel may be installed if desired (see Figure
4). Woodwork such as wood trims, mantels or
any other combustible material projecting from
the front face must not be placed within 12" of
the fireplace opening. Combustible materials
above 12" and projecting more than 1 1/2" from
the fireplace must not be placed less than 15"
from top opening of fireplace (NFPA STD 211,
Sec. 7-3.3.3).
Mantels or any other combustible material also may come up to side edge of black
metal face of fireplace as long as projection
from front face fall within the limit shown in

Firestop Spacers (1100EFS-10DM)
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 double wall
pipe passes through a framed opening into
an attic space, firestop must be placed into
attic floor as shown in Figure 11.

Penetrating the roof
To maintain a 1" clearance to the pipe on a
roof with a pitch, a rectangular opening must
be cut.
1. Determine the center point through which
pipe will penetrate the roof.
2. Determine center point of the roof. Pitch
is the distance the roof drops over a given
span, usually 12". A 6/12 pitch means the
roof drops 6" for each 12" one measure
horizontally down from roof rafters.
3. Use roof opening chart (Figure 12, page
9) 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 the end penetrates the roof line. Check to see that the
proper clearances are maintained. Extend
chimney by adding sections of double wall
pipe until pipe is minimum of 30" above the
highest point of the roof cutout. Termination
and chimney must extend a minimum of
36" above the highest point where it passes

Operation and Maintenance Guidelines
Glass Doors
Glass doors are optional with this 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 24).
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 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 fireplace and glass
door retain their beauty and function properly.
Both flue damper and glass doors must be fully
opened before starting fire. This will provide
sufficient combustion air and maintain safe
temperatures in firebox.
IMPORTANT: The glass must be allowed
to warm slowly and evenly. Tempered glass
will withstand a gradual temperature rise to
550° F, which is more than a normal fire will
generate. 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 fire
away from doors and never allow flames to
contact 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.
Doors Fully Closed
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 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.
