|Publication Date:||1 October 2003|
|ICS Code (Fuel furnaces):||25.180.20|
This guide covers the design and construction of solid fuel burning masonry heaters. It provides dimensions for site constructed masonry heater components and clearances that have been derived by experience and found to be consistent with the safe installation of those masonry heaters.
Values given in SI units are to be regarded as standard. Inch/pound units may be rounded (see IEEE/ASTM SI-10). All dimensions are nominal unless specifically stated otherwise. All clearances listed in this guide are actual dimensions.
This guide applies to the design and construction of masonry heaters built on-site with the components and materials specified herein. It does not apply to the construction/ installation requirements for component systems that have been safety tested and listed. The requirements for listed masonry heater systems are specified in the manufacturer's installation instructions.
The design and construction of solid fuel burning masonry heaters shall comply with applicable building codes.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
