Chimneys

 

The following components are needed to install  stoves, fireplaces or indoor braais.

 Chimney Pipes

Pipes come in various thickness and widths. Cheaper pipes are available (± R70.00 each) but we do not recommend them as maintenance is high which will only add to costs in the long run.

We recommend that a minimum of 3 pipes are used as this improves air flow significantly and avoids smoking stoves.

We carry two types of pipess

  1. Mild steel which will work in 90% of cases
  2. Stainless steel pipes which one will need in coastal areas where rust is a problem.
  3. Insulated Stainless Steel pipes to prevent fire damage

Pipe lenghts ranges from 900 mm to 1200 mm

Bends

Bends are needed when the pipes will not go in a straight line through the roof. 45° or 90° bends can be used. For instance – the pipes will go through the wall and up on the other side of the wall. This will use 2 bends.
