DECORATIVE GAS APPLIANCES FOR INSTALLATION IN SOLID-FUEL BURNING FIREPLACES FOURTH EDITION
|Publication Date:||1 January 1991|
This publication represents a basic standard for safe operation, substantial and durable construction, and acceptable performance of gas-fired decorative appliances for installation in solid-fuel burning fireplaces. It is the result of years of experience in the manufacture, testing, installation, maintenance, inspection and research on decorative appliances designed for the utilization of gas. There are risks of injury to persons inherent in some appliances that, if completely eliminated, would defeat the utility of the appliance. The provisions in this standard are intended to reduce such risks while retaining the normal operation of the appliance.
Nothing in this standard is to be considered in any way as indicating a measure of quality beyond compliance with the provisions it contains. It is designed to allow compliance of decorative appliances for installation in solid-fuel burning fireplaces, the construction and performance of which may exceed the various provisions specified herein. In its preparation, full recognition has been given to possibilities of improvement through ingenuity of design. As progress takes place, revisions may become necessary. When they are believed desirable, recommendations should be forwarded to the Chairman of Accredited Standards Committee Z21, 8501 East Pleasant Valley Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44131.
Safe and satisfactory operation of a decorative appliance for installation in a solid-fuel burning fireplaces depends to a great extent upon its proper installation, and it should be installed in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code, Z223.1, manufacturer's installation instructions and local municipal building codes.
