DuraFlex® Stainless Steel

DuraFlex Stainless Steel

DuraFlex Pro
DuraFlex Pro is the ultimate in flexible steel liners for strength and flexibility. It features 20% more stainless steel per foot compared to other liners on the market. Its extreme flexibility facilitates problem free installations where multiple offsets are needed. DuraFlex Pro is available in 3" through 12" diameters in lengths, kits and custom lengths. DuraFlex Pro is manufactured utilizing highly corrosion resistant 316 Stainless Steel. Listed to UL 1777 and ULC S635.

DuraFlex SW
DuraFlex SW is a smooth inner-wall, flexible stainless steel chimney liner. The smooth inner wall provides for no output reduction allowing for full appliance efficiency. Smooth wall construction eliminates ridges that restrict flue gas flow and collect deposits. The lack of ridges facilitates cleaning and maintenance. DuraFlex SW is ideal for relining masonry chimney for wood and gas burning appliances. Listed to UL 1777.

DuraFlex 316 & 304
DuraFlex 304 and 316 are lighter, more economical liners. Excellent when there are minimal offsets in the chimney. DuraFlex 304SS and 316SS are intended for wood burning, non-condensing gas and oil fired appliances. Where greater corrosion resistance is desired, such as coal-fired appliances, DuraFlex 316 is recommended. DuraFlex 304SS and 316SS are listed to UL 1777 and ULC S635.

  • The inner pipe diameter should match the outlet size of the appliance.
  • Check the appliance manufacturer’s installation instructions to confirm which types of vent configurations are permitted (i.e. horizontal, vertical, chimney reline, etc.). Also, check for any venting restrictions such as maximum horizontal run, minimum and maximum vertical rise, maximum offset, etc.
  • Be fire safe! Use proper support and bracing. Follow local building codes and have your venting system inspected.

Planning Your Installation:

1 Verify the venting requirements of the appliance used. Choose the liner system appropriate for the appliance and installation.
2 Refer to the Typical Installations for the type of liner installation similar to your situation. Identify the needed parts for installation.
3 The size of the liner should match the outlet size on the appliance or the size of the vent/manifold that penetrates into the masonry chimney.
4 Determined the length of the liner needed.
5 Make sure of a proper fit for the Top Plate of the reliner to provide a secure, leak-proof installation.
6 If a free-standing appliance is used, select the vent or stovepipe pieces to connect from the appliance to the liner (refer to the appropriate section of catalog).
7 Important! Check to be sure the installation complies with all local and national code requirements, including clearance to combustibles. Contact the local building inspector for permit requirements.

Design Recommendations

  • The following design recommendations are intended only as a general guideline to assist in the design and selection of liner components for your installation. Always read and follow DuraVent Installation instructions (enclosed with the cap or support box) before installing DuraFlex. Installation instructions can be viewed online at www.duravent.com, under catalogs and instructions.
  • Before relining a chimney, it should be cleaned and inspected to verify the integrity of the mortar and masonry. In addition, have a certified chimney professional determine if the masonry was constructed with 0” or 1” clearance to the surrounding combustibles. This is an important fire safety issue that may have an influence on how the liner is installed.
  • Be sure to select the proper liner for the application. DuraFlex SS is used for appliances that use oil, wood, or wood-pellets for fuel; DuraFlex AL is for a non-condensing gas appliance. Refer to the appliance manufacturer for installation requirements affecting venting. Keep the vent path as straight as possible for best performance.
