Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
Stainless steel chimneys are increasingly seen as an architectural feature in both new building and renovation. They lend structure to facades and create lively material contrasts with wood, stone, plaster or glass. However, there are also many functional and economic reasons to specify stainless steel for internal or external chimneys. Solutions are available as rigid and flexible liners for refurbishment. Thermally insulated double-walled models ensure proper draught also for external installation. Triple-walled models do not only expel exhaust gases; they also suck in combustion air for ovens and boilers installed in modern fully airtight houses. A new Euro Inox publication provides an overview of the technical solutions, the spectrum of applications and provides some illustrative examples.
