Ceiling Heights
All Woodsman free standing fires have been tested and approved to ASNZ 2918:2001
App B with a ceiling height of 2.4m and with the factory flue shield fitted in the below
configurations. In some cases, the top of the flue shield terminates within 600mm of the
ceiling height (refer to ASNZ 2918:2001 4.5.2) but all ceiling temperatures did not exceed the allowable limit in these cases and are therefore able to be installed. Reports
are available on request for Councils.
If the ceiling height is less than 2.4m, then heat shielding is required as per AS/NZ

(Figures C, Q & R)
Floor Protector Sizes
Thickness of hearth (mm)
This graph refers to Page 4 dimension C and Page 5 dimension Q & R.
The floor protector distance out in front of the fire (taken from the door), is dependent
on the thickness of the floor protector. The thicker the floor protector is above the surrounding combustible floor, the less this distance is out in front of the fire.
Rear Deflector
The rear deflector is used for reducing
rear clearances for applicable fires (see
page 4 for details). It is located loose in
the firebox.
To fit the rear deflector, simply attach it
to the rear shield of the fire using 2 rivets in the predrilled holes.
The rear deflector should be positioned
tight up against the flue shield as
shown.

Reducing Clearances
The clearances that are provided on page 4 are to combustible materials. You can safely reduce
those clearances by following the instructions located in AS/NZS 2918:2001 table 3.1 and 3.2
You can reduce the clearances by placing a non-combustible heat shield, with an air gap behind it
and vented top and bottom, between the fire and the combustible wall. Masonry may be used as a
heat shield material. The heat shield must extend a minimum of 450mm beyond the top of the appliance and must be of appropriate width to ensure that the unshielded rear clearance is adhered to
beyond the sides of the heat shield. See example below.
Clearance factors for heat shields which are within 45 degrees of the vertical

A non-combustible material in direct contact with a combustible material, with no air gap, is NOT considered a heat shield
(unless the material has been tested in accordance with AS/NZS 2918:2001 Appendix A).
All clearance dimensions are taken from the combustible material to the appliance, ignoring the non-combustible
in-between.

WARNING - This is only an example, you must refer to the full AS/NZS 2918:2001
document for more details and consult your local building inspector. Where heat shields
are used to reduce appliance dimensions, additional flue shielding may be required
(refer 4.5.2).

Installation Instructions
This appliance should only be installed by a trained and NZHHA qualified installer.
Warning: the appliance and flue system shall be installed in accordance with AS/NZS 2918 and the appropriate requirements of
relevant building code/codes.
Warning: appliances installed in accordance with this standard shall comply with the requirements of AS/NZS 4013 where required
by the regulatory authority, i.e. the appliance shall be identifiable by a compliance plate with the marking “Tested to AS/NZS 4013”.
Any modification of the appliance that has not been approved in writing by the testing authority is considered to be in breach of the
approval granted for compliance with AS/NZS 4013.
Caution: mixing of appliance or flue system components from different sources or modifying the dimensional specification of components may result in hazardous conditions. Where such action is considered, the manufacturer should be consulted in the first instance.
Caution: cracked and broken components e.g. glass panels or ceramic tiles, may render the installation unsafe.

Maintain a clearance of at least 1 metre between front of the appliance and building structure or any other substantial immovable object.

If the appliance is installed on a heat sensitive floor, the floor should be protected with an insulation floor protector, which
shall extend entirely beneath the heater. For the correct floor protector extension, refer to dimension C in FIG 1 & 2.

Your appliance shall be seismically restrained, including the floor protector using the provided holes or brackets. The restraints should be sufficient enough to resist a seismic loading equal to 0.4 times the mass of the appliance. We recommend a
minimum of 8mm dynabolts on concrete floors and 8mm coach screws for wooden floors of appropriate length.

Minimum Flue Height
The top of the flue system should be at least
600mm above the highest point of the roof
ridgeline, if the point of
intersection of the flue system and the roofline is less than 3 metres from the ridgeline
horizontally.
If the point of intersection of the flue system
and the roofline is greater than 3 metres
horizontally, the top of the flue system shall
be at least 1 metre above the point of intersection with the roofline. (refer FIG 3)
The total flue height should be no less
than 4.6m from the level of the hearth.
These are considered to be minimum dimensions, and depending on local conditions,
taller flue system heights may be required for satisfactory performance.
Flue Installation Detail
Your Woodsman appliance should be installed with a HeatSaver Flue System.
A HeatSaver Flue System is available from all authorised Woodsman dealers throughout New Zealand.
The HeatSaver Flue System contains a complete installation drawing and correct
clearances from the ceiling level up. Minimum clearances from the appliance to nearby
combustible surfaces are given in FIGS 1 & 2.
Use of a flue system other than a genuine HeatSaver Flue System may affect the safety of the installation, and may affect your Woodsman warranty.
Insist on a genuine HeatSaver Flue System.
Installation requirements for Woodsman fireplace inserts and flue system where timber
framing is less than 50mm from the chimney structure.
Installation should be carried out by a qualified installer who will ensure:

That the minimum clearances determined by tests in accordance with AS/NZS 2918:2001 are
complied with to prevent overheating of nearby combustibles.

That the minimum opening size of 600mm wide x 600mm high x 500mm deep is available when firebricks are removed, and that extra provision also be made for plumbing where
a hot water booster is fitted (where permitted).

That any flue requirements specific to the model being installed are met in full - refer HeatSaver Flue System Instructions.

Where the fireplace opening is in a heat sensitive wall, a non-metallic heat
resistant material shall extend not less than 50mm beyond each side of the
appliance and 150mm beyond the top of the appliance.

Clearance of at least 1 metre between the front of the appliance and building structure, or
any other substantial material object.

That the insulating floor protector of non-combustible material is provided,
extending not less than the dimensions shown in the chart. (Refer Table 2)

A fireplace appliance shall not be connected to a flue common with an open
fireplace.
11
Sealing Flue Joints
IMPORTANT
All Flue Joints Are Required To Be Sealed Using Flue Cement
It is extremely important that ALL flue joints are sealed at the time of installation using
flue cement or a suitable exhaust cement.
If flue joints are not sealed properly, it can lead to performance issues with the fire such
as;

Lower heat output of the fire, due to decreased performance

Blocked flue

Smoke coming out the door when open, due to decreased suction

Hard to light
The formation of soot and creosote will not seal the flues, especially on the lower
lengths, as the high temperatures inhibit its formation.
Any issues that arise as a result of the flues not being sealed, are not covered by the
warranty and are not the responsibility of the manufacturer.
It is the installers responsibility to ensure that this is done at the time of installation.
12
Fitting the Wetback To The Firebox
Instructions for fitting a loose wetback to the firebox where the
fire has been pre-punched with wetback holes.







Remove knock-outs and cover plates in the rear panels
Remove top rear firebrick
Undo coach bolts on firebox plug to expose wetback holes
Cut rear firebrick with a saw only enough to expose the wetback
holes on the inside and to allow for the placement of the wetback in
front of the brick
Remove 1 nut off each wetback tube
Place wetback into fire with firebrick behind it
Replace nuts onto the rear of the wetback. Ensure the wetback is
level before tightening using a 40mm tube socket
This task should be completed before the fire is positioned in place.
Note: Rear panels do not need to be removed if a tube socket is used for tightening
WETBACK WARNINGS:

Do not connect to an unvented hot water system.


NEVER burn the appliance without the wetback connected to the water system. This will immediately damage
the wetback and void the warranty.
AS/NZS 2918:2001 states; “all water connections to an appliance shall be in accordance with the appropriate
requirements of AS 3500.4.1 or NZS 4603 and the regulatory authority, as appropriate”.
