A. LISTINGS AND CODE APPROVALS

The BW36 Series fireplace system has been tested and listed in accordance with the UL127 Standards, and has been listed by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. for installation and operation in the United States as described in these Installation & Operating Instructions.

The BW36 Series fireplaces have been tested and listed for use with the optional components given on page 4. These optional components may be purchased separately and installed at a later date. However, installation of an outside air kit will require significant reconstruction, and should be installed at the time of the initial fireplace installation.

Check with your local Building Code agency prior to installing this fireplace to ensure compliance with local Codes, including the need for permits and follow-upinspections. If any assistance is required during installation, please contact your local dealer or theHeat-N-GloTechnical Services Department, 20802 Kensington Blvd., Lakeville, MN 55044.

D.PRE-INSTALLATIONPREPARATION

1.FIREPLACE LOCATIONS AND SPACE REQUIREMENTS.

Several options are available to you when choosing a location for your fireplace. a room divider, installed along a wall, across a corner or use an exterior chase.

This fireplace may be used as See Figure 1.

As a room divider.

 

 

 

In an exterior chase or

 

 

 

 

projecting into a garage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Along a wall.

Across a corner.

Figures 2 and 3 show two typical installations assuming an outside air kit is being used. Therefore, an allowance must be made for 90° bends. Less space is required when ducting goes directly outside without forming elbows.

* A minimum of 1" air clearance must be maintained between the firebox and wall.

WARNING!

DO NOT DRAW OUTSIDE AIR FROM GARAGE SPACES. EXHAUST PRODUCTS OF GASOLINE ENGINES ARE HAZARDOUS.

DO NOT INSTALL OUTSIDE AIR DUCTS SUCH THAT THE AIR MAY BE DRAWN FROM ATTIC SPACES, BASEMENTS OR ABOVE THE ROOF WHERE OTHER HEATING APPLIANCES OR FANS AND CHIMNEYS EXHAUST OR UTILIZE AIR. THESE PRECAUTIONS WILL REDUCE THE POSSIBILITY FOR SMOKING OR FLOW REVERSAL.

WARNING!

TO PREVENT CONTACT WITH SAGGING OR LOOSE INSULATION, THE FIREPLACE MUST NOT BE INSTALLED AGAINST VAPOR BARRIERS OR EXPOSED INSULATION. LOCALIZED OVERHEATING COULD OCCUR AND A FIRE COULD RESULT.

2. FRAMING THE FIREPLACE.

Figure 4 shows a typical framing (using 2 x 4 lumber) of the fireplace, assuming combustible materials are used. All required clearances to combustibles around the fireplace must be adhered to. Any framing across the top of the fireplace must be above the level of the hemmed edge along the top of the firebox assembly. Vertical framing at the side of the firebox assembly to which the side nailing flanges are attached must be

perpendicular to the face of the fireplace and may have point contact with the side of the fireplace at the nailing flange. A 1" air clearance must be maintained at the back and sides of the firebox assembly. Chimney Sections at any level require a two inch minimum air space clearance between the framing and chimney section.

Framing the Fireplace

Combustible Material. Material made of or surfaced with wood, compressed paper, plant fibers, plastics, or any material capable of igniting and burning, whether flame proofed or not, plastered or unplastered.

Non-combustibleMaterial.Material which will not ignite and burn. Such materials are those consisting entirely of steel, iron, brick, tile, concrete, slate, glass or plasters, or combination thereof.

Non-combustibleSealant Material.Sealants that

will not ignite and burn; General Electric RTV103Black, or equivalent. Rutland, Inc. Fireplace Mortar #63, or equivalent.

After completing the framing and applying the facing material (dry wall) over the framing, a non-com-bustible sealant,one-halfinch wide maximum, must be used to close off any gaps at the top and sides between the fireplace and facing to prevent cold air leaks.

Only non-combustiblematerials may be used to cover the black metal fireplace front.

WARNING!

DO NOT APPLY FINISHING MATERIALS OVER THE BOTTOM AIR INLET SLOTS NEAR THE GLASS DOOR OPENING ON THE FACE OF THESE FIREPLACES. THIS WILL BLOCK THE FLOW OF COOLING AIR AND MAY CAUSE DANGEROUSLY HIGH TEMPERATURES ON COMBUSTIBLE SURFACES OR ON THE FIREPLACE ITSELF.

3. HEARTH EXTENSIONS.

A hearth extension must be installed with all fireplaces. It is to protect the combustible floor in front of the fireplace from both radiant heat and sparks.

The construction of and materials used for a factorybuilt hearth extension are shown in Figure 5.

A hearth extension of this construction may be covered with any non-combustibledecorative material and may have a maximum thickness of 6" for the BW36 and 3” for the BW36C. Seal gaps between the hearth extension and the front of the fireplace with anon-combustiblesealant.
