    1.1 These requirements apply to factory built unvented liquid or gelled alcohol based, fuel burning decorative appliances intended to be fixed non-moveable appliances including only the following:

    a)    Floor mounted appliances; and

    b)    Wall-mounted appliances;

    c)    Fireplace grates installed in existing masonry fireplaces; and

    d)    Appliance combustion chambers installed into fabricated enclosures that comply with the requirements of this Standard, applicable local codes, and manufacturer installation and clearance requirements.

    These appliances are intended to be decorative in nature and not intended to be utilized as a primary heat source. These appliances are limited to a maximum input rate of 0.25 gallons of fuel per hour (0.95 liters per hour). Fuel oils, kerosene, gasoline, and other non-alcohols are not covered by these requirements.

    1.2 These products consist of an overall enclosure, burning chamber, and provision for refueling. They are not intended for use in spaces in which flammable vapors or gases may be present. They are not intended to be used as cooking appliances. And, these systems are not intended to be used in conjunction with blower assemblies.

    Fireplace grates do not require an integral enclosure; they utilize the existing masonry fireplace as their enclosure, see 1.1(c).

    1.3 The appliances as covered by these requirements are intended for installation in occupancies where use is permitted by local codes, such as NFPA 1,  Uniform Fire Code and NFPA 101,  Life Safety Code.
