Framing Installation REMINDERS!

• All the framing surrounding the unit should be detached and free from the unit.

• Follow all the clearances around the fireplace. Fireplace clearances can be downloaded here: Download

• Keep the firebox unit free from additional weight.

• Unit should stand as if an island. The only connection allowed is the connection of the legs to the platform or to the sub-floor.

Not following the clearances, connecting framing to the unit, bearing additional weight to the firebox can cause damage to the fireplace.

Damage may result in:

• Fireplace not functioning properly.

• Bent firebox.

• Cracking of glass panel(s).

• Distortion of surrounding finish materials.
