This chimney pipe is 9" outside diameter and requires 2" of clearance to any combustible materials. It must rise thru the roof to a height that is 2' taller than the nearest surface within 10' horizontally, which is usually the ridge. The chimney is also required to extend at least 3' from the roofline. If the chimney extends over 4' from the roof surface then support bars are required to stabilize it. 1/2" thin walled conduit from a electrical or hardware store is often used. The chimney sits in a support box that is 14" square and attaches to the ceiling framing on all four sides by 3 screws or nails each. The 6WCS support box included here, has a trim attached to it and is designed for a finished level ceiling. If your ceiling has a slope or is unfinished then you need to order an 11" deep or deeper support box to hang into the room far enough for the connection to the interior stovepipe to be far enough away from the ceiling for safe clearances. Single wall stovepipe requires 18" clearance to combustibles and double wall pipe or single wall with pipe shields, require 6" clearance.
