• Do not place any type of media on the pilot or in front of the pilot.
  • Keep 1” distance from the pilot to allow correct operation of the pilot.
  • Media can be put over the Flare burner. Avoid from placing media over the main burner ports as it may disrupt flame in case of a clogged port.
  • Keep the pilot front cover view open in order to be able to view the pilot spark and flame from outside.
  • Maintain minimum distance of ¼” from media to the fireplace glass panels.
  • Use the manual for instruction on how to remove and place back the fireplace glass in order to put or arrange the fireplace media.

The pebbles size will vary and is approximately 2 – 3 inches .

See below picture for a better perspective of the pebbles.
 

The Flare-DC framing instructions includes a 4″ max measurement requirement to a side wall . The requirement is due to the fact that the side glass will radiate heat like a front glass of a fireplace.

See below chart for clarification . The 4″ Max is the X value

 
measurement

Yes, it does . The Flare Fireplace uses an advance gas valve, GV60 , that supports home automation .

The GV60 gas valve will operate through an external source, such as a home automation system, by using the 5-wire pin connector on the receiver.

Warning: Turn off the fireplace, and allow time for the unit to cool before proceeding.

Caution: The ceramic glass is very fragile, and should be handled with care.

Warning: Double glass fireplace should NEVER be operated without the external glass

Step 1 – Remove lower trim by releasing the screws. The number of screws will depend on fireplace size.

Step 2 – Attach glass suction cups to the glass and release the glass upper frame. The upper frame is attached with 10mm spring bolts.

The top glass trim gap will open once bolt is released and will allow the glass to be removed. Upper trim will stay attached and only open to be able to remove external glass.

Step 3 – Tilt the bottom of the window frame and rest it in the gap between the external frame and glass holder.

Step 4- Tilt the top of the window frame and lift out to clear the top edge of the unit. Place the window frame in a safe place to avoid damage.

Repeat the steps above in reverse order to install the external glass back.

YES, the fireplace remote can be used after the unit has been turn on from the wall switch . The fireplace receiver will respond to both , the wall switch or remotes commands regardless of what was used first.

The firebox front legs will need to be assembled during installation but only for corner fireplace models ( Flare-DC , Flare-RC, Flare-LC ). The Corner glass does not allow for the front leg to be pushed in full during shipping. Flare-Front and Flare-See Through will have the telescopic legs assembled during shipping and should not need to be assembled .

Flare-FF-50 framing example

The framing guides for each fireplace can be found under download center on the product page.

Metal studs are 2 inches away from the fireplace here. The minimum distance is 1/2 inch away from the fireplace.

Covered wood stud below non combustible line are 2 1/2″ away from the fireplace.

See the manual for more details on clearances.

  • Do not place any type of media on the pilot or in front of the pilot.
  • Keep 1” distance from the pilot to allow correct operation of the pilot.
  • Media can be put over the Flare burner. Avoid from placing media over the main burner ports as it may disrupt flame in case of a clogged port.
  • Keep the pilot front cover view open in order to be able to view the pilot spark and flame from outside.
  • Maintain minimum distance of ¼” from media to the fireplace glass panels.
  • Use the manual for instruction on how to remove and place back the fireplace glass in order to put or arrange the fireplace media.

No

The clearance to covered combustible material is a minimum of 2 1/2”. Covering the combustible material with non-combustible does not reduce the minimal clearance to combustible.

Clearance requirements:

2” to non-combustible

 

2 1/2” to combustible (and it must be covered)

Example: A non-combustible cement board is placed 2 inches from the back of the fireplace. The cement board used is 1/2 inch thick. Combustible material can be used behind cement board as it is a total of 2 1/2 inches ( 2” + ½” ) away from the back of the fireplace and is covered with a non- combustible.

Flare-FF-50 vent calculation example based on the manual:

Vent path from Survey:

  • 3 ft up from the fireplace
  • 45 elbow
  • 1ft
  • 45 elbow up
  • 15 ft vertical up
  • Vertical cap

Y vertical calculation

A – First Flue length =  3              =  3 ft
B – Vertical Flue length = 1 +15  = 16 ft
C – Roof Terminal = 1                   = 1.5 ft
H – Small Elbow (45°) = 2            =  2 ft

 Y Axis Parameters = 22.5 ft

X Horizontal calculation

D – Horizontal Flue length  = 1 ft
E – Elbow (90°)                        =  0
F – Elbow (lying 90°)              =  0
G – Wall Terminal                   =0

X Axis Parameters = 1

Flare Fireplaces recommends using 3 Ft of vertical run before any bend or turn . In some install scenarios it is possible to use less than 3 Ft.

Please contact Flare Fireplaces support team for vent path review & approval ( free service ) when wanting to use less than 3 Ft.
