STAINLESS STEEL CHIMNEYS - THE PRACTICAL AND COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION FOR YOUR FIREPLACE OR OVEN
Stainless steel chimney systems differ from a classic chimney kit in their material. While the conventional chimney is brick-built, the stainless steel chimney is made of high-quality stainless steel. The use of this material prevents flue gas condensation already inside the chimney. Stainless steel chimney systems fulfill the same purpose as classic chimney variants: discharge of flue gas.
Compared to a brick chimney, stainless steel chimneys are stacked or twisted together. The installation is therefore much easier.
Flue gas removal is necessary for any fireplace or stove, as a flammable buildup is possible if the chimney is not properly vented. Unlike traditional brick fireplaces, stainless steel chimneys are subject to certain requirements, and only when these requirements are met are they able to installed and used for residential and commercial needs. We back this up with a 25-year warranty and certificates.
A VARIETY OF STAINLESS STEEL CHIMNEY SYSTEMS
The classical chimney system can be traced back to the ancient Romans. They already built chimneys from bricks and similar material. The stainless steel chimney is a further development of the traditional brick chimney. In today's world, interested buyers have a much more varied choice of materials. Generally, one can choose between single-walled and double-walled. Also, the diameter of the stainless steel chimney will vary. The decision is based on the conditions of the application area for the future use of the fireplace. This inner diameter from the stainless steel chimney depends on your fireplace. If several fireplaces are connected to a chimney, usually a diameter that is larger than that of your fireplace is used. If the installation of the fireplace is planned for the outside, the chimney kit should be double-walled. A double wall protects the stainless steel chimney from external environmental influences. In addition, an insulating layer ensures the function of the fireplace.

THE INSTALLATION: INSTRUCTIONS THAT NEED TO BE CONSIDERED
Installing a Twin Wall-Flue Pipes stainless steel chimney takes very little effort. One thing that must be considered is an opening in, either through the roof or the wall, is required before the chimney can be installed. For either type of opening, the diameter of the chosen chimney and the location of the appliance need to be taken into consideration so the appropriate opening can be made. Whether a roof penetration is required for your stainless steel chimney depends on whether the chimney is to be built vertically or offset.
Depending on your local ordinances and regulations, it is important to remember that a chimney may not be put into service until the appropriate approval has been obtained. A common misconception is that installation conducted by a contractor means that the chimney can be imidetely used. This, however, is not the case. Regulations also require a specific diameter of a chimney and certain distances from walls and other structural elements that may be deemed unsafe. These regulations also differ between states.
In order to ensure a quick and easy approval from the responsible authorities, it is good practice to place the chimney where it can be easily accessed by avoiding hard to access places within your attic. Also, consider the surroundings; overhead trees or power lines may prevent the inspector from approving the chimney for use.
Possible problems such as a lack of smoke removal are often discovered by an expert during an inspection, as a result of an owner change. Also during a new assembly, an inadequate smoke removal of the stainless steel chimney can be identified. The reason for this is often a chimney that is laid too short. Design errors of this type can easily be used to corrected by using stainless steel chimney straight lengths. Stainless steel chimney length elements are also very inexpensive, so there is no need for the fear of high costs.
