Class 1 Flue

Class 2 Flue

Newer homes may also have a Class 2 flue with a 5″ minimum diameter that terminates with a cowl. The most common is a gas cowl as illustrated.

Pre-cast Flue

A more modern home may have a pre-cast flue (usually identifiable from the starter block or letter-box opening) that terminates with a ridge tile, as illustrated.

Fan Flue

A fan flue alternative is available for new homes built without a chimney or older properties where the flue is no longer of sound integrity. All that is required is a suitable outside wall.
