Our stove pipe is a matt black, single wall stove pipe. Its enameled interior and exterior ensure the durability of the colour and increases its resistance to high temperatures and condensation. At 1mm steel thickness these flues can be easily cut to the required size using fine-grain grinding disks.
A single wall stovepipe is a standard for venting heating stoves. A black stovepipe is used to vent the stoves exhaust out of the living space and into a chimney liner or chimney system. This is commonly called a "connector pipe".
For use as flue stove connection for domestic and commercial heating appliances to flue/chimney.
Suitable for oil, gas and Solid Fuels. Available as straight lengths, bends (elbows) & tees with fittings and accessories.
INSTALLING A STOVE PIPE
Single wall pipes should only be used as a connecting piece between your stove and the chimney stack.
Stove pipes should never pass through walls, ceilings, floors or windows. Other products should be used for this purpose, such as the twin wall flues. You must also be sure you convert from single wall stove pipe to twin wall flue pipe at least 150mm before passing through a non-combustable wall or ceiling.
Your 5″ flue pipe should be 15″ away from combustibles and your 6″ flue pipe should be 18″ away from combustibles in any direction.
Avoid bends in your chimney if possible; the fewer bends, the better the upwards draft will be. UK Building Regulations and HETAS recommend no more than four 45-degree bends in any one system.
When installing a wood stove flue, remember that the higher the chimney, the better the draft will be.
The ideal flue assembly is one that rises straight up from the appliance flue collar and directly into the chimney with no elbows. The system can include inspection panels to allow easy access.
A straight flue assembly offers the least restriction to gas flow and results in a stronger draft. Straight assemblies also need less maintenance because there are no corners for creosote deposits to accumulate.
A perfectly straight stove pipe assembly is another good reason to install chimneys up through the warm space of the house, instead of out, up, and outside the wall.
The (inner) diameter of your stove pipe is usually the same size as the flue collar on your stove. Follow manufacturer recommendations whenever applicable. Never use a chimney that is smaller in diameter than the flue size of the appliance it is being connected to. An improperly sized chimney results in excessive creosote formation and poor draft.
Be sure to install a chimney cowl to prevent animals and rain from entering the chimney and to improve the upwards draft.
