Installation of the sauna stove must conform to all local normative documents, including the applicable national and European Union standards relating to the installation, including EN 15821:2010.
Before installing the sauna stove, check the safety distances in Table 1. Safety distances A, B and 1200 mm above the stove are given for combustible materials.
If you are going to install the stove in a niche composed of non-combustible material (stone, concrete), leave at least 100 mm between the wall and the stove for air movement.
In the case of a double heat barrier reduce the safety distance for combustible materials to 1/2 in the case of a single and 1/4 in the case of a double heat barrier. The heat barrier is considered within the safety distance, and the difference between the outer surface and the protected area must be at least 30 mm.
Install the sauna stove on a non-combustible surface with the required carrying capacity.
Do not place electrical equipment and wiring in the safety area of the sauna stove.
Installing Hive Wood 17 LS to be heated from another room
The furnace bushing of the sauna stove must be made through a non-combustible wall (stone, concrete, etc.).
In addition, insulation with mineral wool or similar is recommended.
Leave at least 10 mm between the bushing and the stove to facilitate the movement of air, so add 20 mm to height D and width C in Table 1 when you calculate the dimensions of the opening.
If the floor in front of the furnace is made from combustible material, install fire-resistant floor protection in front of the furnace door. The protection must be 600 mm wider than door width C, with a depth of at least 400 mm.
Connecting the sauna stove with the chimney
The sauna stove must be connected to the chimney only by specialists.
The flue gas outlet is at the top of the HIVE Wood sauna stove. The sauna stove is connected to the chimney using special flue pipes.
The elbows of the connection tubes must be smooth to keep draught loss to a minimum.
The tube is inserted through the wall of the chimney and sealed with mineral wool.
The flue gases of the stove must be directed into a separate flue. Do not use a common flue with other furnaces.
Important! Forced extract ventilation may cause problems with the ventilation of the room and inadequate furnace combustion, therefore, designing and building such a ventilation system is permitted only with the supervision of a licensed specialist.
