READ ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLATIONThe instructions cover the basic principles to ensure satisfactory installation of the stove, although detail may need slight modification to suit particular site conditions. In all cases the installation must comply with current Building Regulation ‘J’, Local Authority Byelaws, European and National standards and any other specifications or regulations as they affect the installation of the stove.
The information contained in this manual includes extracts from the Building Regulations 2000 “Approved Document J”(Combustion Appliances and Fuel Storage Systems), updated October 2010. This guidance information in no way replaces your responsibility as an installer or end user to comply with the appropriate standards.
SAFETY WARNINGS FOR YOUR GUIDANCETHIS STOVE WILL BE HOT when in operation and due care should be taken. Thick gloves should be used to operate the primary/ secondary controls or reaching inside the stove to position fuel or remove ash.
FIRES CAN BE DANGEROUS - Always use a fireguard in the presence of children, the elderly or the infirm. The fireguard should be manufactured in accordance with B.S. 6539 - Fireguards for use with solid fuel appliances.
DO NOT OVERFIRE - it is possible to fire the stove beyond its design capacity. This could damage the stove, so watch for signs of overfiring - if any part of the stove starts to glow red, the stove is in an overfire situation and the controls should be adjusted accordingly. Never leave the stove unattended for long periods without first adjusting the controls to a safe setting. Careful air supply control should be exercised at all times.
THIS STOVE MUST BE CONNECTED TO A SUITABLE FLUE OUTLET. Dueto high temperature this stove should be located well away from furniture and curtains. Children and adults should be alerted to the hazards of hot surfaces. Young children should be carefully supervised when they are in the same room as the stove. Do not place clothing or other flammable material on or near the stove.
Keep the stove area clear of combustible materials, flammable liquids or vapours.
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING CAN BE FATAL. Carbon Monoxide detectors to BS EN 50291 are available for use in domestic premises and details are available in the official HETAS guide that can be viewed on their website at www.hetas.co.uk.
Due consideration should be given to the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning following incomplete combustion of solid fuels in an enclosed space. See page 14 in this booklet.

WARNING: DUE TO THE WEIGHT OF THE STOVE IT IS RECOMMENDED
THAT TWO PEOPLE PERFORM THE POSITIONING & INSTALLATION.
POSITIONING AND INSTALLATIONIn England and Wales, there are only two routes to legally install a domestic solid fuel or wood burning appliance. In other parts of the UK there are variations in legislation and processes.
You can either:
• Use a registered installer who can self certify that the work he does complies with the relevant Building Regulations; or
• The consumer applies to their local authority building control department for a building notice, and pays the appropriate fee.
It is generally worthwhile to use a HETAS registered installer who will supply a Certificate of Compliance as a record of the job and that it complies with Building Regulations. A copy of the certificate is forwarded to HETAS who notify the local authority on your behalf.
Failure to notify the work through the registration scheme (in this case HETAS) or directly to the local authority can lead to enforcement. It can also cause problems for future house sales if there is no official record of a compliant installation. All local regulations, including those referring to National and European Standards need to be complied with when installing this appliance.
For specific guidance when cast iron stoves are being installed in boats or homes with thatched roofs, please refer tothe SOLIFTEC website at;
SUPPORTING FLOORSThe stove must only be installed on floors with an adequate load bearing capacity and if the existing construction is not suitable, additional measures such as a load distributing plate must be provided.
The hearth should be able to accommodate the weight of the stove and its chimney if the chimney is not independently supported. Stoves should stand wholly above hearths made of non-combustible board/sheet material or tiles at least 12mm thick, if the stove is not to stand in a recess and has been tested to an applicable standard to verify that it cannot cause the temperature of the upper surface of the hearth to exceed 100OC.
Constructional hearths should be made of solid, non-combustible material such as concrete or masonry, at least 125mm thick, including the thickness of any non-combustible floor and/or decorative surface.
Specific guidance for surfaces on which the stove may be allowed to stand is given in Approved Document J and must be followed.
When the stove is positioned near a wall constructed of flammable material, the distances shown on Fig 5 must be adhered to. Alternatively, a heat shield may be used, mounted according to the position of the fireplace. A firewall must be at least 100mm thick and typically made of brick, or concrete/stone.
MATERIAL CLEARANCESThe stove must have a minimum clearance of 1200mm to a combustible ceiling above.
It is recommended that the stove be installed at least 800mm from combustible materials. However, any household furnishings should be at least 1000mm away as they could be adversely affected by heat.
The stove can be recessed in a suitable sized fireplace but a permanent free air gap of at least 200mm must be left around the sides and top and at least 50 mm at the back of the stove to obtain maximum heat output and for access to the rear of the stove.
MINIMUM DISTANCE TO COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALSNote: combustible material refers to any material that will degrade when subjected to heat e.g. plaster.
Due to the heat of a hot stove, a suitable fire guard should always be used to provide additional protection. Never allow young children to be left unsupervised in a room containing a hot stove.
Note; If in doubt, refer to the Building Regulations 2000 Approved Document “J”.
THE CHIMNEY The stove is supplied with a flue pipe connector for top mounting with the fixing screws supplied. The stove should never be connected to a shared chimney/flue system.
Flue pipes with a smaller cross-sectional area than that of the stove outlet should never be used. Flue pipes must not project into the chimney connector, such as to cause a restriction to the gas flow.
Sizes of flues in chimneys are stipulated in Table 2 of the Building Regulations 2000 Approved Document “J” as follows:
