SAFETY Continued
Overfiring of a fireplace is a condition where excessive
temperaturesarereached,beyondthedesigncapabilities
of the appliance. The damage that occurs from overfiring
is not covered under the manufacturer’s limited warranty.
WARNING: CONTINUED OVERFIRING CAN PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR FIREPLACE SYSTEM.
SOME EXAMPLES OF CONDITIONS THAT COULD
CAUSE OVERFIRING ARE:
• BURNING QUANTITIES OF SCRAP LUMBER, PINE
BRANCHES, PAPER OR CARDBOARD BOXES
WHICH EXCEED THE VOLUME OF THE NORMAL
LOG FIRE.
• BURNING TRASH, CHEMICALS OR CHEMICALLY
TREATED COMBUSTIBLES.
Disposal of Ashes
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tightfitting lid. The closed container of ashes should be placed
on a noncombustible floor or on the ground, well away
from all combustible materials, pending final disposal.
If the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise
locally dispersed, they should be retained in the closed
container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled.
WHEN USING THE DECORATIVE APPLIANCE, THE
FIREPLACE DAMPER MUST BE SET IN THE FULLY
OPEN POSITION.
Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start
or ’freshen up’ a fire in this fireplace. Keep all such
liquids well away from the fireplace while it is in use.
Use SOLID WOOD only for fuel. It is best to use dry
and well seasoned hardwood. Softwoods tend to burn
very quickly. DO NOT use treated wood, charcoal, coal,
trash, driftwood or woods that have been dipped in
tar, pitch, pine tar, creosote, etc. Wood products made
with synthetic binders, such as plywood, produce abnormally high temperatures and sputtering, smoking
fires. When burning artificial logs, please read and
follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer.
Never burn treated construction lumber or scraps.
These woods burn excessively hot and may contain
chemicals used to treat insects and fungus. When
burned, these chemicals can pose a significant hazard.
127014-01B
WARNING: BURNING IMPROPER FUEL (I.E. CHARCOAL) CAN RESULT IN CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING, WHICH MAY LEAD TO DEATH!
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning – Early signs of carbon
monoxide poisoning resemble the flu with headaches,
dizziness, or nausea. If you have these signs, get
fresh air at once! Have the appliance inspected by a
qualified service technician. Some people are more affected by carbon monoxide than others. These include
pregnant women, people with heart or lung disease
or anemia, those under the influence of alcohol, and
those at high altitudes.
Ventilation Requirements - Provide adequate air for
combustion. The fresh air requirements of this appliance must be met within the space where it will
be installed.
Smoke Detectors - Since there are always several
potential sources of fire in any home, we recommend
installing smoke detectors. If possible, install the
smoke detector in a hallway adjacent to the room (to
reduce the possibility of occasional false activation
from the heat produced by the appliance). If your local
code requires a smoke detector be installed within the
same room, you must follow the requirements of your
local code. Check with your local building department
for requirements in your area.
Creosote – Formation and Need for Removal
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other
organic vapors, which combine with expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense
in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow-burning
fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on
the flue lining. When ignited this creosote makes an
extremely hot fire.
The chimney shall be inspected at least twice a year
during the heating season to determine when a creosote
buildup has occurred. When creosote has accumulated
(1/8" [3 mm] or more) it shall be removed to reduce
the risk of a chimney fire.
WARNING: Children and adults should be alerted
to the hazards of high surface temperatures and to
stay away to avoid burns or clothing ignition. Young
children should be carefully supervised when in the
same room as 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 manufacturer or supplier of noncombustible material. If 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 5).
WARNING: Hearth extension is to be installed only
as shown in Figure 5.
MANTELS
A mantel may be installed if desired (see Figure 6). Woodwork such
as wood trims, mantels or any other combustible material projecting
from front face must not be placed within 18" of fireplace opening.
Combustible materials above 18" and projecting more than 1 1/2" from
fireplace must not be placed less than 21" from the top opening of the
fireplace (NFPA 211, Section - Clearance from Combustible Material).
Mantels or any other combustible material also may come up to side
edge of the stainless steel face of fireplace as long as projections from
front face fall within limit shown in Figure 6.

DESCRIPTION
Fireplace
ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION OF DOUBLE WALL CHIMNEY
SYSTEM
Each double wall chimney section consists of a galvanized outer pipe, a
stainless steel inner flue pipe and a wire spacer. The pipe sections must
be assembled independently as the chimney is installed. When connecting chimney directly to the fireplace, the inner flue pipe section must be
installed first with the lanced side up. The outer pipe section can then
be installed over 5 the flue pipe section with the hemmed end up. Press
down on each pipe section until the lances securely engage the hem on
the fireplace starter. The wire will assure the proper spacing between the
inner and outer pipe sections.
Continue to assemble chimney sections as outlined above, making
sure that both the inner and outer pipe sections are locked together.
When installing double wall snap-lock chimney together, it is important to assure the joint between the chimney sections is locked. Check
by pulling chimney upward after locking. The chimney will not come
apart if properly locked. It is not necessary to add screws to keep the
chimney together (exception, see Figure 9, page 9).
The height of a vertical chimney pipe supported ONLY by the fireplace, must not exceed 20 feet. Chimney heights above 20 feet must
be supported.

USING ELBOW OFFSETS (30E-12DM)
1. To achieve desired offset, you may install combinations of 12",
18", 24", 36" and 48" length of double wall pipe (see offset chart
and Figure 9).
2. Chimney weight above offset rests on return elbow. Straps must
be securely nailed to rafters or joists (see Figure 10, details A and
B).
3. Maximum length of pipe between supports (return elbow or
12S-12DM) is 6' of angle run. Maximum of two 6' angle run
sections per chimney system (see Figure 11, page 10).
4. All pipe connections between the offset and return must be
secured with two screws on the outer pipe only (see Figure
9). Do not penetrate the inner stainless.

FIRESTOP SPACERS (FS-10)
Firestop spacers are required at each point where the chimney penetrates
a floor space. Their purpose is to establish and maintain the required
clearance between the chimney and the combustible materials. When
the pipe passes through a framed opening into a living space above, the
firestop must be placed onto the ceiling from below as shown in Figure 12.
They also provide complete separation from one floor space to another
or attic space as required by most codes. When the double wall pipe
passes through a framed opening into an attic space, the firestop must
be placed into an attic floor as shown in Figure 13.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
When penetrating a ceiling into an attic, a firestop
thimble (FST10) is required to avoid intrusion by insulation and recommended to negotiate a joist.

PENETRATING ROOF
To maintain a clearance to the pipe on a roof with a pitch, a rectangular
opening must be cut.
1. Determine center point through which pipe will penetrate roof.
2. Determine center point of roof. Pitch is distance the roof drops
over a given span, usually 12". A 6/12 pitch means that roof drops
6" for each 12" measured horizontally down from roof rafters.
3. Use roof opening chart (Figure 14, page 11) 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 end penetrates roof line. Check
to see that proper clearances are maintained. Extend chimney by
adding sections of double wall pipe until pipe is minimum of 30"
above highest point of roof cutout. Termination and chimney must
extend a minimum of 36" above highest point where it passes
through roof.

Installing Flashing on a Metal Roof
When installing the flashing on a metal roof, it is required that putty
tape be used between the flashing and the roof. The flashing must be
secured to the roof using #8 x 3/4" screws and then sealed with roof
coating to prevent leakage through the screw holes. A roof coating
must also be applied around the perimeter of the flashing to provide
a proper seal.

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE GUIDELINES
GLASS DOORS
Glass doors are optional with the 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 30).
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 the 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 the fireplace and glass door retain their
beauty and function properly. Both the 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.
The 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 the fire well back from the doors
and never allow flames to contact the glass.

PUREFIRE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM
This fireplace is equipped with a PureFire Emission Control System. The Catalytic Hood system reduces particulates emissions in a wood burning fireplace
to meet the EPA Wood-Burning Fireplace Program Phase 2 emission level.
The EPA qualifying label, shown on this page, will be affixed to the catalyst.
Before lighting the first fire, remove and maintain this label in a safe place
if needed for permits or building inspection. Prior to beginning installation,
contact your local building official to determine the need to obtain a permit.
For proper operation, catalyst must be replace every 3 to 5 years.
FUELING GUIDELINES
The fireplace grate must always be secured to the retaining brackets provided.
The position of the grate must be centered against the back wall of the firebox.
Burn only dry, seasoned (cured) wood with less than 20% moisture. Avoid
the use of treated, painted and laminated wood. Never burn garbage or
other foreign materials. Do not use artificial logs, colored newspaper or
petroleum based fire starters. Avoid wood with high salt content. All of
these materials may contain compounds which can shorten the life of the
catalyst. Wet or unseasoned wood may lower catalytic temperatures and
result in inefficient operation.
The catalyst is designed to function at optimum efficiency when the fireplace
is burning clean, dry, cord wood as fireplace fuel. A simple visual inspection
of the chimney during the wood burning process will determine catalyst
performance.
The fuel load should always be placed on the back of the grate. Use clean dry
wood, seasoned cord wood is the best choice. Never burn trash, plastics,
gasoline, rubber, industrial solvents, flammable liquids, naptha, household
garbage, material treated with petroleum products, leaves, paper products,
cardboard or salt driftwood.
Refer to your INNOVATIVE HEARTH PRODUCTS (IHP) Homeowner's Guide
included with your fireplace for proper fire building technique and ash
removal procedures. These fueling guidelines must be followed in order
to achieve maximum emissions performance from the PureFire System.
WARRANTY
INNOVATIVE HEARTH PRODUCTS (IHP) warranty obligations for
the PureFire Emissions Control System are limited to the terms
set forth below.
IHP warrants to the consumer who purchases a new solid fuel
burning fireplace containing a PureFire Emissions Control System
as a new component, to replace the catalyst at no charge should it
cease to function within three years from the date of purchase. The
PureFire Catalytic Component is designed to perform efficiently
for three years of fireplace operation. ONLY recommended fuels
should be burned. Follow the fueling directions in manufacturers operation manual. For warranty purposes, proof of fireplace
purchases is required. Labor for removal and/or installation of the
catalytic component is not the responsibility of the manufacturer.
Neither IHP nor the dealer who sells the PureFire Emissions Control
System is responsible for indirect, incidental, special, punitive or
consequential damages arising out of the improper use of this
product or the continued use of this product beyond the required
replacement period.
PHASE 2 QUALIFIED
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The proper use of a wood burning fireplace equipped with the catalyst will significantly reduce the emissions that it produces. Simple fuel considerations
with regard to moisture content, size, and quality of fuel will help control the
production of wood smoke and improve the performance of the catalyst and
fireplace efficiency. With proper care, the catalyst will provide years of fuel
savings and lowered emissions. By following some simple guidelines, you
will ensure maximum performance and longevity.
The smoke that is usually seen coming out of a chimney is essentially a
combination of unburned fuel (carbon and hydrogen) and moisture in the
form of water vapor. The catalyst is a technology that provides secondary
combustion for the wood burning process.

MAINTENANCE
The PureFire System is a maintenance free technology. Do not attempt to
remove or clean the combustor. The direct flame from the fire will clean the
combustor. Only a certified technician should remove the unit. To ensure
proper fireplace operation, the PureFire System should be replaced every 3
to 5 years (see Parts on page 18).
NOTE: Chimney smoke may be visible during the first 8 to 10 minutes of
fireplace operation when the fire is first getting started and the final 8 to 10
minutes of operation while the fire is dissipating. Under normal operating
conditions, you should see little or no smoke coming out of the chimney. If
continuous smoke is visible, make sure only dry seasoned wood is being
burned. If visible smoke continues, the combustor has ceased to function
or there is thermal crumbling. Call your IHP distributor or dealer for replacement parts.
