I CANNOT FIND ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE GIBRALTAR WOOD OR COAL STOVE. I BOUGHT A HOUSE AND AT FIRST THE INSURANCE COMPANY SAID IT WAS FAR ENOUGH AWAY FROM THE WALL BECAUSE OF THE STOVE COMPANIES REQUIREMENTS. NOW THEY ARE SAYING THEY AREN'T AND I NEED SOME PROOF FROM THE COMPANY, BUT I HAVE NO MANUAL AND HAVE BEEN LOOKING ON THE INTERNET FOR A WEEK AND CAN'T FIND ANYTHING. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME??? THANK YOU

I'm not familiar with a Gibralter stove. If it is a radiant stove, it probably requires 36" to combustibles including a wall. If it has a heat sheild, it may only need 18" of clearance. Can you post some pictures of the stove?
Also, if the stove is UL approved, it should have a metal plate attached with the clearances listed.

Thank you for your reply, it does have a heat shield on the back. And it use to have a plate on the back that gave the specifications of how far it had to be, but for some reason the insurance inspector went to inspect the house and now the plate is mysteriously gone!! The stove is 23 inches away from the wall and they are saying it has to be 36 inches, but I remember the plate said it only had to be 18 inches. I'm not to familiar with stoves but what do you mean by radiant heat? It is both a coal and wood stove. Thank you for your reply.

A radiant stove would be one without any fans or blowers moving air around the outside surface of the stove.

If there is a fan or blower, it usually blows air inside a metal jacket surrounding the stove, picking up heat and blowing it out vents in the front of the stove.

I have a copy of the Gibraltar manual for our coal/wood freestanding stove that we purchased new in 1986. Still works fine. I can easily scan and email you a copy if you will just send me your email address. We have the model CFS and it has saved us many thousands of dollars over the last twenty years.

I can't seem to figure out how to post a copy of the Gibraltar Manual to this site so if anyone wants a copy, just let me know and I can email or tell me how to post.
Thanks
Paul
