All fireplace installations are ultimately unique, just like the buildings they are fitted into but the drawings below will give you an indication of the installation scenario and cost most applicable to you. Please use the drop down during check-out to select the flue kit that you require. Additional fittings like bends, clamps, wall brackets and the like can be purchased separately and added to your order.

You can find the flue size for your fireplace by visiting the fireplace page. The “Additional Information” tab has the flue diamter shown.
When you order from us we can provide you with a recommended installer in your area. All our units come with installation instructions that should be adhered to and additional to these we follow these recommended safety distances:
- From plastered walls – no less than 150mm
- From wooden, crete stone, gibson plaster or similar or walls – require protective fire board
- From combustible materials– 1000m – e.g. curtains, furniture
- From plug points and electrics– 1000m – if you need to install near a plug point or light switch an electrician will need to blank it off.
- From Roof Beams – When visible you will need bends to get around these and need to be 400mm from single skin pipe and 150mm from insulated pipe. When not visible (e.g. in the roof cavity) we only recommend using insulated pipe and additional ceramic wool blanket and/or fire board to protect roof beams.
- Floors of wood, carpet, laminate or the like – will require a floor plate of glass or steel.
- Glass and Windows – can be installed in front of them but you will loose valuable heat.
- Existing hearth and brick chimney – must be clear all the way up, functional and in good safe working condition. Ideally we require 250mm to allow for a flue liner.
- Wooden ceilings – use insulated pipes as well as ceramic wool to ensure safe passing of the flue to the ceiling cavity.
GOOD TO KNOW
Just like a motor car, your fireplace will require some maintenance from time to time. It is widely recommended industry wide that you service your fireplace and flue system annually. This insures the flue is clean and clear for winter burning, that all ropes, seals and panels are in good repair, that your roof seal is still intact and that your flue system has no dangerous pitting or heat leaks.
