Installation Options

Through-the-Roof Installation:

Utilize components like Roof Support, Flashing, Storm Collar, and Chimney Cap to create a seamless through-the-roof installation.
Choose the appropriate roof pitch flashing based on your roof’s specifications.
Through-the-Wall Installation:

Ideal for situations where a through-the-roof installation is not feasible.
Components such as Wall Thimble, Tee/Cap, Tee Support, and Wall Straps are essential for a secure through-the-wall setup.
Interior Installation for Optimal Efficiency:

Whenever possible, install the chimney on the interior of the structure.
Interior installations enhance draft efficiency and reduce the risk of creosote buildup.
Offset Considerations:

Aim for a straight vertical installation for maximum efficiency.
If offsets are necessary to navigate obstacles, use 15° or 30° elbows.
Avoid elbows greater than 30° (not allowed in the United States).
Each offset requires at least one Elbow Strap for proper support.
Chimney Height Above Roof Line:

Follow building codes requiring a minimum of 3′ above the roof penetration.
Maintain at least 2′ higher than any portion of a building within 10′.
Additional roof brackets are needed every 5′ if the chimney extends 5′ or more above the roof penetration.
Minimize Offsets for Optimal Draft:

Straight vertical installations are more efficient and less prone to creosote development.
If offsets are necessary, measure the horizontal distance and vertical height required.
UL Approved Shroud for Aesthetic Appeal:

Enhance the visual appeal of your chimney with a UL-approved shroud.
Refer to DuraTech Shrouds Installation Instructions (L157) for a stylish and functional exterior.
Customization with Additional Components:

Tailor your installation with components such as Finishing Collar, DVL/DuraBlack Chimney Adapter, Stove Adapter, and more.

Fuel Types

Gas, Wood

Fuel Type Application

The DuraTech 10″-24″ Chimney System by Duravent is designed to accommodate various fuel types, providing versatility for a wide range of heating appliances.

Clearances and Cavity Measurements

Clearances:

Combustibles:

Maintain a minimum clearance of 2 inches to combustible materials for all sections of the DuraTech 10″-24″ Chimney System.
Wall Thimble:

When installing the Wall Thimble for horizontal through-the-wall installations, ensure appropriate length of chimney pipe for the wall thickness. The telescoping pieces of the Wall Thimble can be separated to accommodate thicker walls, and a field-fabricated extension may be installed.
Attic Insulation Shield:

Must be used in all installations passing through an attic, irrespective of whether the attic is insulated or not.
Firestop Radiation Shield:

Must be used when the chimney passes through a floor or ceiling without a support box.
Cavity Measurements:

Minimum Chimney Height:

At sea level, the minimum height of a straight vertical chimney should be 10 to 15 feet above the appliance outlet. For higher elevations, installations with elbows, or the use of a tee, approximately 30% to 60% more height may be required to ensure adequate draft.
Roof Line:

Building codes typically require a minimum of 3 feet above the roof penetration. Additionally, the termination cap should be at least 2 feet higher than any portion of a building within 10 feet.
Roof Pitch:

Measure the roof pitch to select the appropriate flashing. For example, a 6/12 pitch has a vertical rise of 6 inches over a horizontal distance of 12 inches.
Extended Roof Bracket:

If the chimney extends 5 feet or more above the roof penetration, an extended roof bracket is required. Install an additional roof bracket every 5 feet.
Elbows and Offsets:

Elbow Types:

15° and 30° elbows are available. Elbows have a 360° swivel base for orientation, fixed at 15° or 30°. Elbows greater than 30° are not allowed in the United States.
Offset Limit:

A maximum of two offsets in a single installation are permitted. Each offset requires at least one Elbow Strap for proper support.
