Chimney Installation Specifications and Tips:
This chimney pipe is 9 inch outside diameter and requires 2 inch of clearance to any combustible materials. It must rise thru the roof to a height that is 2 feet taller than the nearest surface within 10 feet horizontally, which is usually the ridge. The chimney is also required to extend at least 3 feet from the roofline. If the chimney extends over 4 feet from the roof surface then support bars are required to stabilize it. half inch thin walled conduit from a electrical or hardware store is often used. The chimney sits in a support box that is 14 inches 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 inches 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 inches clearance to combustibles and double wall pipe or single wall with pipe shields require 6 inch clearance.
The standard pipe listed here is tested to 1700 degrees which was the only standard for class A chimneys up until the 2100 “HT” testing standard was established. We have "HT" pipe listed on many product pages as an option or available upon request. Review your needs with your local building inspector or stove manufacturer to determine which pipe suits your needs
Here are the primary considerations in potential variations from our standard system listed here:
- Your internal pipe size (6 inch or 8 inch ID)
- Single wall stove pipe or double wall stove pipe interior? - (check your stove clearances to decide) The dimensions vary from stove to stove. Cut out a piece of newsprint or cardboard of the stove dimensions with flue collar marked and lay it in stove location to see where flue will be centered for either interior stovepipe. This will help you decide which interior pipe to use and your necessary hearth dimensions. Double wall pipe or single wall pipe with pipe shields are most common to conserve floor space.
- Height from stove top to ceiling support box - This determines how much interior pipe will be needed, depending on how far the support box hangs into the room if it is a sloped ceiling. Also, make sure to accommodate dimensions of offset if elbows are necessary to reach the chimney support box due to framing in the ceiling.
- Ceiling pitch-slope - A flat finished ceiling uses the 6WCS support box with trim built in. An unfinished ceiling or sloped ceiling up to 4/12 for single wall interior pipe uses the 6WRS11 support box. If the ceiling is over 4/12 and up to 7/12 pitch then the 6WROS (18” deep support box) will accommodate single wall pipe with 18” horizontally to the ceiling and a steeper pitch if you use double wall pipe or single wall with a pipe shield for 6” horizontal clearance. 24” & 36” support boxes are available for very steep, A Frame type ceilings but are rarely used.
- Roof pitch - From flat to 6/12 pitch uses 6WF or 6” skirt on 6WFF flashing. From 7/12 to 12/12 (45 degrees) use the 6WRFF-12 flashing. Steeper flashings than 12/12 must be custom made at sheet metal shop.
- Height from ceiling support box bottom to the top of the pipe - The pipe must extend 2 feet over nearest ridge or surface within 10 feet horizontally.
