Before installing the zero clearance wood inbuilt, two standoffs must be secured to the top of the
appliance. These parts are required to maintain proper clearances to heat sensitive materials. You
will find the standoffs in the firebox and the screws in the owner’s manual kit. Align the holes of the
spacers (A) with the pre-drilled holes on top of the zero clearance wood inbuilt and secure them
with 8 screws provided (B), as shown.
Carrying the Zero Clearance Wood Inbuilt
To facilitate transportation of the Caldor before its installation, we have designed handling grips
(AC09200, sold separately). The moulded bricks are in a box you can carry separately. We
suggest you install the bricks after the setting up of the zero clearance wood inbuilt. To install the
bricks, see section Moulded Refractory Brick Panels Installation.
Locating the Caldor
The best location to install your zero clearance wood inbuilt is determined by considering the
location of windows, doors and the traffic flow in the room. Figure some space in front of the unit
for the hearth extension and the mantel and clearances to other combustible materials. If possible,
choose a location where the vent will not interfere with any truss, roof beams, wall studs, water
pipes or electrical wiring. It may be easier to relocate the appliance than to rework the building
structure. Also choose a location that allows installing the least number of offsets in the flue.
Usually, no additional floor support is needed for the zero clearance wood inbuilt. The adequacy of
the floor can be checked by first estimating the weight of the zero clearance wood inbuilt. Weights
are given in the section General Information. Next, measure the area occupied by the zero
clearance wood inbuilt. Note the floor construction and consult your local building code to
determine if additional support is needed.
THE ZERO CLEARANCE WOOD INBUILT MUST BE INSTALLED ON A LEVEL AND
STRAIGHT (NOT UNEVEN) SURFACE.
