NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATIONS NOT TO SCALE.
The safety strips should extend in front and
sides of the fireplace opening 2" (51 mm) . In
the event a wooden support is used to elevate
the fireplace above the floor, a “Z” type safety
strip should be fabricated and used to protect
the front surface of the wood support as well
as the floor beneath the hearth extension (
Figures 8 and 9
). The safety strips should be
tacked down to prevent possible movement.
Note: The “Z” type safety strip is not supplied.
Step 3. Refer to fireplace drawings and speci-
fications on pages 7 and 8 for framing dimen-
sions and details. False header may be posi-
tioned directly on top of the fireplace spacers
see Figures 10, 11 and 12
IMPORTANT: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES
CAN THE FIREPLACE TOP SPACERS (
) BE REMOVED OR MODIFIED, NOR MAY
YOU NOTCH THE HEADER TO FIT AROUND
OR BE INSTALLED LOWER THAN THE SPAC-
ERS. THE HEADER MAY BE IN DIRECT CON-
TACT WITH THE TOP SPACERS BUT MAY NOT
BE SUPPORTED BY THEM.
