Clause 3 specifies requirements for firebacks for inset open fires without boilers or underfloor air supply used with solid fuel.

Clause 4 specifies requirements for prefabricated fireplace surrounds and hearths and excludes constructional hearths at floor level (see Figure 1).

Clause 5 specifies requirements for precast, reinforced concrete throat-forming lintels, excluding those designed to form part of a complete appliance.
