Flue/chimney requirements?

Solid fuel and wood burning stoves require a class 1 flue system.  Minimum overall height must be 4.5m to provide sufficient draught to safely exhaust the products of combustion.  The flue/chimney system may be either mineral or stainless steel and must conform to current building regulations.  There are separate regulations covering the installation of stoves in park homes and boats.

Existing chimneys should be clean, sound and inspected by an expert before installation and lined, if necessary, with a class 1 chimney liner.  Anslow Woodburners are happy to advise you further.
