Product Details

Suitable for indoor installations only.

IMPORTANT: Gasfitters and builders
Linear models have adjustable wallboard support rails. The gasfitter will adjust these based on the thickness of the wall lining. It's important the gasfitter gets the wall lining information from the builder. If this is not done the wall lining will not sit flush (if a flush installation) and the cavity can overheat causing the fire to cut out.

BUILDERS: Due to the heat from the fire ensure a 50 mm clearance around the unit, including the rear (if a single-sided model). This information is included in the framing dimension pages of the installation guide. Use this in conjunction with the 'Linear additional wall lining detail' to ensure a successful installation.

Yes. The majority of modern gas fires have electronic ignition and safety components that require electricity. For customers concerned with power outages, there are commercially available battery backup systems. One provider is Helio ( who supply systems specifically designed for use with gas space heaters and water heaters.

For flues terminating through the roof there is a requirement for how far the flue terminal needs to be from the building. This clearance is required to ensure products of combustion are cleared adequately. Rinnai recommends the flue cowl should have a 500 mm clearance from any part of the building.

For more information, refer to the installation manual of the gas fireplace you are interested in – available on our website.

With the exception of the Compact 2 model, all Rinnai fires may be suitable to have a TV installed above them. Rinnai fires incorporate a fan that distributes warm air outwards into the room rather than directly upwards, meaning that installation of a TV may be an option.

Please refer to the Specification guide for gas fireplaces for recommended installation clearances. It is the responsibility of the owner to check the TV installation instructions with the TV supplier to verify clearances. Some TV manufacturers have warranty conditions that state a TV is not to be installed above a fireplace. Rinnai does not accept any responsibility for damage to a TV resulting from the use of this information.

For reliable operation, Rinnai gas fires should be serviced every two years (including inspection of the flue system). If they are in a particularly dusty environment or subject to excess lint (for example dog hair, or where there are newly laid carpets) then annual servicing is recommended.

If you’d like to schedule a service, just give us a call 0800 RINNAI (0800 746 624) or fill in our form online.

This is a fireproofing box that isolates the appliance from combustible materials. For the Linear, Evolve, Symmetry and Arriva models, this is integrated into the design of the fire. For the Neo inbuilt, Ember and Compact gas fires, a zero clearance frame or box needs to be purchased in addition to the fire if the installation requires isolation from combustible materials.
