AS NZS 5263.1.8 pdf download – Gas appliances Part 1.8: Decorative effect gas appliances
This Standard provides specific requirements and test methods for Type 1 and Type 2 decorative effectgas appliances with natural draught or fan assisted combustion systems, with an energy input noexceeding 72 MJ/h.
For Australia, the fuel gases are natural gas (as described by AS 4564), town gas, liquefied petroleugas (LP Gas，as described by AS 4670), simulated natural gas (SNG) and tempered liquefiedpetroleum gas (TLP).
For New Zealand, the fuel gases are natural gas(as specified in NZS5442)and general product liquefiepetroleum gas (NZLPG) (as specified in NZS 5435).
NOTE 1 Space heating appliances are not covered by this Standard but are covered by the requirements oAS/NZS 5263.1.3.
NOTE 2 Indoor flueless appliances are not covered by this Standard.

Note 2 to entry: In appliances designed specifically for a luminous or visual effect, limited carbon depositionwithin the appliance, yellow tipping and limited lifting or floating flames are not considered abnormal.
co safety system
system that causes the gas supply to be shut off before the carbon monoxide in the ambient air exceedsa specified concentration and before the oxygen in the ambient air falls below a specified concentration1.3.202
appliance designed to be mounted on or against a wall and not built into a fireplace or cavity1.3.203
decorative effect gas appliance
gas appliance that simulates a solid fuel fire or uses a flame effect and whose primary function lies inthe aesthetic effect of the gas flames
