Foco Room Divider 800 Installation
On this page you will find an example of how you can build the Foco Room Divider 800 into a wall.
The instructions on this page are just one of multiple ways to install a Foco fireplace. You can read the Foco installation manual for further instructions and information on how to install the fireplaces: Foco Installation manual.
Build the framework
Construct the framework of the wall in your preferred material. Most materials are suitable but if you build the frame in flammable materials like wood, remember to add a layer of non-combustable material between the framework and the fireplace. Please see Fire Proofing later on this page.
The framework should be built in dimensions matching the fireplace - with the thickness of the wall finishing materials subtracted. This will give a flush finish between the fireplace and wall when everything is finished.
Attach your preferred wall plates to the framework. In this example, plasterboards have been used.
Many different types of wall boards can be used but it is important that the materials are heat-resistant in the area surrounding the fireplace.
If the wall is constructed in flammable materials like wood, a heat-resistant layer should be added between the wall framework and the fireplace frame, as highlighted in the right image above.
- Heat-resistant plasterboards (Often called Pink Board)
- SkamoEnclosure plates
- Promafour plates
- Promatect plates
- Super-isol plates
- or similar
Finish the wall
Insert the fireplace frame and finish the wall.
In a construction like this example with plasterboards, all cracks and gaps in the plasterboard should be filled out with putty filler and the surface smoothened with sandpaper.
Then fiberglass wallpaper can be attached to the wall, and if necessary, any small gap between the wall and fireplace should be filled out with heat-resistant sealant.
Finish off by painting the wall in your favourite colour.
