Mantels

The height that a combustible mantel is fitted above the

fireplace is dependent on the depth of the mantel. This also applies to the distance between the mantel leg (if

fitted) and the fireplace.

For correct mounting height and width, refer to Figure 2a and 2b.

The distances and reference points are not affected by the fitting of a bay window front trim kit.

Noncombustible mantels and legs may be installed at any height and width around the appliance.

When using paint or lacquer to finish the mantel, such paint or lacquer must be heat-resistant to prevent discoloration.
