Vent Components RequiredExterior Wall Thickness

Combustible wall finish materials and/or surround materials must not be allowed to encroach the area defined by the fireplace front face (black sheet metal). Never allow combustible materials to be positioned in front of or overlapping the fireplace face.

Reinstall any barrier removed before operating the fireplace. The barrier is designed to reduce the risk of burns from hot glass. Do not operate the fireplace without the barrier installed. All models must have a barrier installed prior to operation.

Millivolt fireplaces have a millivolt gas control valve with piezo ignition system. If a blower will be installed, electrical power must be provided at the time of fireplace installation. In millivolt systems, do NOT connect a wall switch to a 120 V power supply.
Electronic Ignition fireplaces are designed with an electronic intermittent pilot ignition system. External electrical power is required to operate these units. In the event of a power outage, four (4) AA batteries (in battery holder) provide backup power for fireplace operation (excluding the optional blower).

*Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) is the recognized U.S. rating system for the total efficiency of heating products.
