Things to keep in mind when choosing a flue:

A fireplace flue functions under negative pressure to draw the combustion from your braai or fireplace. To ensure that it works perfectly, it is crucial that the flue diameter chosen matches the output of your fireplace or braai. For a successful installation, the following guidelines should be kept in mind:

  • Make sure that the height and position of your flue is in proportion to ensure that it functions correctly. Even when it is a built cowl, adhere to the correct height and position.
  • Your flue’s diameter is designed in line with the kilowatt output of your fireplace. Therefore, adhere to the correct flue diameter.
  • The correct materials need to be used for the manufacture of the flue. Not only will this ensure functionality, but also durability.
  • Attention needs to be paid to the safety distances and air gaps in your flue – this differs from unit to unit and our team will assist to make sure that your installation is flawless.
  • To prevent heat loss, the cavity needs to be caulked and insulated.
  • Each unit requires a fresh air vent positioned correctly. We will help you make sure that it is placed perfectly.
  • Circulation vents also need to be installed at certain distances and one needs to make sure that outlet vents are outlets and intake vents are intakes.
