How to Install the Merino

Carefully remove the glass doors from the ZC ReFace Enclosure to make the it lighter for installation and to help prevent damage to the glass doors and the finish. NOTE: Frameless TotalView doors are not shipped installed. They will be found packaged in cardboard inside the master shipping carton.

Remove the optional Cabinet Mesh Screen Doors from the enclosure if they were ordered.

If Hanging Mesh Screens were ordered, instructions for installing them are packed with the screens. ▪ The mesh screen panels will be packed flat between layers of cardboard. Be careful not to discard the screens accidentally.

Set aside all of the parts removed in a safe place.

Remove any protective plastic film from any polished metal trim or overlay material on the ZC Glass Door frame or doors if applicable.

Start the Pressure Screws into the mounting tabs on the back side of the ZC Glass Door frame.

Set the ZC Glass Door frame into the ZC Fireplace firebox opening.

○ Check that the OEM screens (if retained) will operate smoothly with the new ZC Glass Doors installed. ○ If the OEM screens will not operate correctly contact your Brick Anew dealer to order screens to fit into the ZC Glass Doors.

CAUTION: Screens must be installed and operate properly on your ZC-Fireplace before lighting a fire. Never light a wood fire without proper screens installed on the ZC-Fireplace.

Center the ZC Glass Door in the firebox opening. Tighten the Pressure Screws evenly. Don’t over-tighten. (Figure 1) NOTE: All Glass Doors for ZC-Fireplaces are engineered with air spaces around the frame and air-gaps in the glass. These air-gaps are essential to help cool the ZC-Fireplace should the glass doors be closed during operation. Figure 1 shows an inside fit with gaps around the perimeter of the Glass Door. Overlap style doors will have air-gaps on the sides of the frame or behind the frame. Never use insulation or sealant on ZC Glass Door installations.

Under no circumstances should these air-gaps be tampered with or altered in any way.

Check that the ZC Glass Door frame is aligned level, straight, and square.

Replace the Glass Doors. Discard the shipping hinge screws if used. Use the color-matched permanent hinge pins that are taped to the glass doors if needed. NOTE: Some door styles use hinges that do not need separate hinge pins. NOTE: If the glass doors do not close properly or do not lay flat against the frame, the frame is most likely twisted. Loosen the pressure screws on the side of the frame opposite the glass door that is away from the frame. Move the bottom corner of the frame out until the doors line up properly. Retighten the pressure screw (s). NOTE: Failure to align the ZC Glass Doors properly may result in glass breakage or other damage directly attributable to improper installation.

Replace the Mesh Screen Doors if they were ordered with the ZC Glass Door. NOTE: If your are using the OEM screens that are part of the ZC-Fireplace make sure that they operate freely with the ZC Glass Door securely mounted. See CAUTION above.
