Code limitations on height of fireplace over floor?

Hi everyone,

I'm installing a linear fireplace in a new home build. Namely, this one:
Napoleon Fireplaces Support

Is there a height requirement for this fireplace to be installed over the floor? It doesn't look like it on my reading of the installation manual. It does list lots of vent clearances and required width/length of the framing, but nothing re: appliance height over the floor.

No. It is made to sit on the subfloor. If for some reason you want to build a platform to sit it on, that is your business. That would obviously raise the minimum height for a mantle or TV, as all their minimum clearances (and the TVs requirements) must still be met.

Thanks. I figured with the large lower section below the actual exposed fireplace face, sitting on the subfloor itself would be alright. But all the diagrams included show some height in the framing (without measurements).
