THE FLUE SYSTEM (Continued)
OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
Minimum Flue System Height
The top of the flue system should be tall enough to be above the air turbulence caused when wind
blows against the house and its roof.
The flue exit shall be located outside the building in which the appliance is installed so that:
a) The flue shall extend not less than 4.6 m above the top of the floor protector;
b) The minimum height of the flue system within 3 m distance from the highest point of the roof
shall be 600 mm above that point;
c) The minimum height of the flue system further than 3 m from the highest point of the roof shall
be 1000 mm above roof penetration;
d) No part of any building lies in or above a circular area described by a horizontal radius of 3 m
about the flue system exit.
Suitable Flue Systems
Your zero clearance wood inbuilt will provide optimum efficiency and performance when connected
to a 200 mm diameter flue.
The Relationship Between the Flue System and the House
Because the flue system is the engine that drives the wood heating system, it must have the right
characteristics. The signs of bad system design are cold backdrafting when there is no fire in the
zero clearance wood inbuilt, slow kindling of new fires, and smoke roll-out when the door is
opened for loading.

• WHEN OPERTAING THIS APPLIANCE AS AN OPEN FIRE, USE A FIRE SCREEN.
• DO NOT USE MATERIALS OTHER THAN THOSE LISTED IN THE REPLACEMENT
PARTS SECTION DURING INSTALLATION AS THEY MAY BE SAFETY HAZARDS
AND A FIRE COULD RESULT.
• NEVER OVERFIRE YOUR WOOD INBUILT. IF ANY PART OF THE WOOD INBUILT
STARTS TO GLOW RED, OVER FIRING IS HAPPENING.
