Planning The Installation
We suggest that you have an authorized Travis Industries dealer install your stove. If you install the
stove yourself, your authorized dealer should review your plans for installation.
Check with local building officials for any permits required for installation of this stove and notify your
insurance company before proceeding with installation.
Preparation for Installation
Check for damage to the exterior of the inserts (dents should be reported, scratches can be fixed by
applying touch up paint).
Check the interior of the firebox (replace cracked firebrick and make sure baffle is in place).
The stove can be lightened by removing the firebricks and baffle. (pg 26) - replace before operation.
