Wood stove connection

All local codes and regulations relating to national and European norms for this type of appliance must be adhered to during the installation of this wood stove. In order for the wood stove to work properly, it is necessary to ensure the correct chimney draught at the collar of the flue pipe. We recommend that the wood stove is connected to an independent chimney flue.

Before installing the wood stove, it is necessary to check the load bearing capacity of the floor (ceiling), whether it meets the load bearing conditions for the weight of the given wood stove model. The wood stove must be installed on a thermally-insulated non-combustible underlay, which extends past the perimeter of the stove by 100mm on the sides and rear and by 300 mm at the front. It is necessary to leave sufficient space for the purpose of easy access for cleaning the stove, the flue pipe and the chimney.

The installation of the wall-mounted wood stove is performed by first mounting the hanging elements (included). The fastening of the hanging elements needs to be rated for a weight of at least 200 kg - in the case where a flue pipe is used as a chimney, this increase in weight must be taken into account. The installation of a wood stove on a wall must be assessed by an expert who will assess the load bearing capacity of the masonry so as to prevent it from coming loose. Furthermore, it is necessary to meet sufficient fire safety requirements for the wall on which the wood stove will be suspended. In the event that the wood stove is mounted on a brick wall or on a wall from non-combustible materials, there is no prescribed minimum clearance between the wood stove and the wall. In the event that an external air supply is connected to the wood stove, it is necessary to first prepare a sufficiently large hole for the air supply. To improve handling, we recommend also making a hole above the external air supply outlet to enable the wood stove to be easily lifted.
