Installation & regulation


To comply with UK Building Regulations, and HETAS requirements, our STARTINOX range can be used as a connecting flue pipe from the appliance to the chimney

>  Connecting Flue pipe can only be used in the room where the appliance is installed. It should not pass through any roof space, partition, internal wall or floor.

> Connecting Flue pipe cannot be used to support the chimney it is connected to and the appliance shall be able to be disconnected from the chimney without disturbing the chimney ( Building Regulations ADJ).

> It is allowed to pass through a 'masonry wall/ floor of a masonry chimney' to directly connect to the Flue in the chimney ie. through either the wall of the chimney or a masonry floor supporting the chimney. 

> The maximum allowable length of single wall connecting flue pipe is 2,000 mm as stated in BS EN 15287 – 2007 +A1:2010

> It is recommended that a vertical rise of 600mm should be included, immediately above the appliance before any change of direction to improve draught.

> It is recommended that you install an inspection & cleaning door to ensure the chimney can be swept without having to pass cleaning equipment through the appliance.

> When bends are needed, then no part of a flue pipe should form an angle greater than 45 degree from the vertical, except for the rear connection to a rear outlet appliance, the horizontal section, shall not exceed 150mm* ( Building Regulations ADJ).

Note.1  A maximum of 4 bends (2 offsets) is permitted in any "complete chimney and connecting flue pipe system”. Where offsets are incorporated, suitable cleaning access shall be provided and the draught should be checked that it meets the appliance requirements.

Note 2, * "the short horizontal section, not exceeding 150mm", could be extended to 450mm subject to strict system criteria being met, if any extended length is required please discuss in detail with our technical department.
