Assembly tips

Tips for measuring your insert or stove glass.

Measurements are taken in inches.

If your window is still in place, take its measurements to the nearest millimeter and make a direct order.

If your window is broken or missing, take the inside dimensions of the door’s frame and subtract 1/8in from each dimension obtained.

To summarize: subtract 1/4in from each dimension.
For example: your frame measures 23in x 15in, you must order a window measuring 22in 3/4 x 14in 3/4.

To replace your fireplace or stove insert glass , you must:

• If possible, disassemble the door to lay it flat.

• Spray penetrating oil on the screws and wait a few minutes.

• Unscrew the fixing brackets.

• Remove the remaining glass or debris and carefully clean the door frame for proper integration of the new glass.

• Position the self-adhesive seal around the new window. Please note: some models do not have a seal on the upper horizontal part of the window.

• Place the new glass in the door frame.

• Screw in the fixing brackets without forcing so as not to risk breaking the glass when the cast iron door first cools down.

• Replace the door on your fireplace insert or stove and leave to dry for 24 hours before relighting the fire.
