90 Degree Adjustable Elbow for 6" Stovepipe
This elbow is fully adjustable from 5 degrees to 90 degrees. It comes in 4 interlocked sections so that by swiveling the joints you can get just about any angle you need.
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION NOTES:
Avoid using sharp angles in your stovepipe installation. By placing one elbow on the stove top and one at the ceiling and slanting them towards each other you will accomplish the least severe angle possible for improved chimney draft, ease of chimney cleaning and reduced chances of having creosote stack up on sloping walls of the stovepipe. This will make the stovepipe appear to be leaning, which some owners don't approve of but if you need elbows at all, then this is the most functional way to install it. If you choose rise vertically off the stove and add elbows towards the ceiling you can do that to but the farther you travel to the ceiling, the more severe your angle will be. If you only need a few inches of offset then you can use one elbow as shown in the photo to achieve about 3" of offset in the vertical stovepipe.
All stove pipe should be installed with the crimped end/male end facing down so that liquid creosote will drip into the stove instead of outside of the pipe. All joints should be secured with 3 sheet metal screws at each joint. A slip connector section is almost always needed to adjust the length and get the proper overlap on all joints. Stoves should always be vented thru a chimney system that is the same size diameter as the stove flue. If necessary a larger chimney pipe can be used but the draft/performance will be reduced for the stove. Unless otherwise specified by the stove or pipe manufacturer's listed instructions all single wall stovepipe can be no closer than 18" to a combustible surface measured perpendicular to the pipe. Pipe shields can be added to reduce the clearance to combustibles to 6". A double wall pipe can also be used to reduce these clearances. Reducing pipe clearances is often required to use the reduced stove clearances to walls and conserve space and hearth size. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more assistance as needed.
