Installation Options

nstallation Option: Through-the-Wall Installation

This installation option provides a convenient and space-saving solution for integrating the DuraTech Premium Chimney System into your home. Follow these steps for a successful through-the-wall installation:

Step 1: Determine Appliance Flue Outlet Size

Measure the diameter of the appliance flue outlet.
Select the corresponding chimney and connector stovepipe with the same size diameter (6″, 7″, or 8″).
Step 2: Assess Wall Installation Components

Identify if the installation is through-the-wall.
Required components: Wall Thimble, Tee/Cap, Tee Support, Wall Bands, Flue Extension, and Decorative Collar.
Step 3: Interior Installation for Efficiency

Whenever possible, install the chimney inside the structure for improved draft and reduced creosote formation.
Avoid offsets that may restrict natural draft; choose a straight vertical installation for efficiency.
Step 4: Addressing Offsets

If offsets are necessary, measure horizontal distance and vertical height required.
Utilize 15°, 30°, or 45° elbows as needed (45° allowed in Canada; U.S. limit is 30°).
Maximum of two offsets (four elbows) permitted; provide suitable support for each offset.
Step 5: Determine Minimum Chimney Height

Check local building codes for minimum chimney height requirements above the roof line.
Minimum of 3’ above the roof penetration and at least 2’ higher than any part of a building within 10’.
Step 6: Consider Roof Pitch and Flashing

Determine total length of chimney and stovepipe needed for the installation.
Step 7: Ensure Fire Safety

Maintain at least 2” clearance to combustibles.
Adhere to local building codes and schedule a certified professional chimney inspection.

Fuel Types

Gas, Wood

Fuel Type Application

The DuraTech Premium Chimney System by Duravent is a versatile and high-performance solution designed to accommodate various fuel types. Whether you’re using wood, oil, gas, or coal appliances, the DuraTech Premium Chimney System ensures safe and efficient venting.

Clearances and Cavity Measurements

Clearances to Combustibles:

Maintain a minimum clearance of 2 inches to combustible materials. This includes walls, ceilings, and other surfaces near the chimney system.
Minimum Chimney Height:

The chimney should extend a minimum of 3 feet above the roof penetration.
The chimney top should be at least 2 feet higher than any part of the building within a 10-foot radius.
Vertical Installation:

Install the chimney in the interior of the structure whenever possible.
A cold exterior chimney may produce less draft and result in more creosote formation.
Avoiding Offsets:

If possible, avoid offsets that restrict the natural draft.
A straight vertical installation is more efficient, but if offsets are necessary, limit them to a maximum of two (four elbows).
Horizontal Distance and Vertical Height:

Measure the horizontal distance and vertical height required for offsets, considering the available space and obstructions.
Select 15°, 30°, or 45° elbows as needed.
Chimney Height Above Roof Line:

Determine the minimum chimney height above the roof line based on local building codes.
At least 2 feet higher than any portion of the building within 10 feet.
If the chimney is more than 5 feet above the roof penetration, a Roof Brace is required.
Roof Pitch:

Measure the roof pitch to select the appropriate flashing.
Adjust flashing based on the pitch, ensuring a proper seal.
