Easy Installation | Applications | Balanced Flue | Installation Examples | Tank Installation Examples
Especially suitable to supplement or replace underfloor and night store electric heating systems, flued and unflued gas heaters, and ideal for Homes, Holiday Homes, Churches, Halls, Retail, Medical, Meeting Rooms, Bars, Offices, Restaurants, Classrooms etc (see examples below).
Primarily designed for location on an outside wall, LASERTM space heaters must only be installed with the TOYOTOMI Balanced Flue Assembly. The Balanced Flue Assembly is designed to pass through an external wall, and can be extended up to approx 1100mm (for thick walls, fireplaces etc.). The flue pipes between the heater and the Balanced Flue Assembly can be extended a maximum of 3 metres with up to 3 x 90 degree bends (cannot be extended upwards or downwards) (available as optional flue extension kitsets). The 3m flue limit needs careful consideration when planning the installation, and it is important to note that extension pipe kits CANNOT pass through an internal wall.
Other than the painted steel floor tray provided, no hearth or flameproof material is required under or behind the heater (download the manual here and note clearances required on page 19 for the ideal location).
If the LASERTM is to be installed in an existing fireplace, the flue should pass through a 75mm hole located immediately at the back of the heater, (drilled by a concrete cutter through the back of the fireplace, using the cardboard wall drilling template supplied with each LASERTM Heater). The air intake for the room circulation fan (at the back of the LASERTM Heater) requires an air gap (approx 50mm around the top and both sides of the LASERTM), between the heater and a replace surround (see photo on right). Because no fireproof surround is required, around, or under, the LASERTM, if fireplace installation is overly difficult, consider locating the heater somewhere completely different. Removing the fireplace altogether is another option, which may provide space and modernization benefits to the home. Discuss any location / installation problems with your supplier or contact Avon on 0800-379-247.
The LASERTM FF-95 is supplied with Automotive Diesel fuel from an (outdoor) remote fuel tank (see accessories page for more details on the Toyotomi 84L Tank).
Installation of the Heater & Diesel Tank must comply with the Seismic Restraint Regulations of New Zealand Standard
NZS:4219, and the requirements of NZBC C/AS1 para 3.1.4. The FF-95 is supplied with 4 x wall mounting brackets and fixings - see manual page 25 for further details on wall bracket installation.
To comply with NZ Regulations, a Fusible link string (supplied fitted to each LASERTM Heater) is applied in tension (by the installer) to maintain OPEN, the spring loaded lever of a fire shut off valve, which is installed in close proximity of the diesel tank. The completed installation must comply with National regulations and any Local Authority regulations that apply to the installed site. Your installer or Avon can advise upon enquiry or at the time of installation.
The LASERTM Heaters require a 10 amp fused power supply to operate the automatic ignition and circulating fans (50 watts continuous burning).
If power supply reliability at your home is a concern, some options could be a generator or an inverter, suggest contacting Avon to discuss suitability. Note only a true “sine wave” inverter is suitable (12V DC to 230V 50Hz to allow for “in rush current”, not
less than 1000 Watts). - Suggest JAYCAR ELECTRONICS. A 12V DC car battery will operate
the FF-95C for 70-120 hours, depending on capacity and condition. Contact battery supplier for advice.
