THE FURNACE INSTALLATION
Safety distances to flammable substances
- The heater should be located at a safe distance to combustible materials , and there also should be enough space for heaterer operation. Typically, a person who drowns a stove needs about 1x1m of free space in front of the stove.
- The heater should be installed on a concrete floor, or a concrete slab with a thickness of at least 60 mm.
- The distance from the top of the heater to the ceiling should be not less than 1200mm.
- When installing a heater near concrete walls, the minimum distance to the heater's wall must be at least A = 50 mm to ensure proper air circulation.
- Safe distance between wooden walls and the heater is A = 500mm.
- If it is not possible to maintain the indicated distance to combustible materials, it is necessary to use protective wall coverings where the stove is installed. Mineral insulation, reinforced cement slab, closed with non-flammable facing material, are used as a protective coating. In this case, the safe distances from the heater's walls to the protected walls reduce to A = 200 mm.
Sauna premise ventilation
- The ventilation directly affects the feeling while taking sauna. Traditional ventilation based on natural air circulation is achieved by fresh air supply in the floor area by the stove and removes it as far as possible from the oven as close as possible to the ceiling.
- When using mechanical ventilation, air can be applied at a level of 500 mm above the heater, to mix it with air rising from the heater. Mechanically, air is removed from the sauna room in the floor area, for example under the shelves.
