What is the manufacturers guideline on this stove as my location is all non combustable brick fire place, I currently have left 100mm each side and 50mm rear and I believe this is sufficient. I also want to clarify that the hearth has to extend to 300mm from the front of the stove.

Hi Shaun,
Thank you for your question.
The "Downloads" tab has an installation guide which gives full details of distances.
Here's what it says about non-combustible fireplace installs -
"The stove can be recessed in a suitable sized fireplace but a permanent free air gap of at least 150mm on top and 50mm (although we recommend 150mm) around the sides and 50mm at the back of the stove to obtain maximum heat output and for access to the rear of the stove.
The hearth should extend at least 300 mm from the front of the stove. The stove should stand wholly above a solid, non-combustible hearth, at least 125 mm thick"

So your install will be within the manufacturers guidelines.

The 300mm of hearth in front of the stove is part of Building Regs 2010 Part J and is non-negotiable.
I have an Aspect Compact 4 at home with 300mm and if I were fitting it again I would extend the front hearth even more. To stop ash from the door dropping on the floor in front of the hearth.
Hope this helps?
Kind regards,
