HEATMASTER WOOD FIREPLACE FLUEING REQUIREMENTS

Heatmaster wood fireplace flue systems

Heatmaster wood fireplace flue systems and components 

HEATMASTER FLUEING - Depending on the type of installation, the flue system will vary. If you are installing into an existing masonry fireplace or you intend to build a masonry enclosure and chimney then an active flue run is all you need with one outer flue and cowl at the top. If you want a zero clearance 'boxed in' with timber frame then a triple flue system is required.

The Heatmaster freestanding can be installed with a single flue to ceiling level where it must become a *triple system through the roof. However, if you are using a stainless steel flue, you may consider using double skin as the active flue will darken to a bronze-like colour after a while. A min 3.6 metre flue kit is required.

The Heatmaster inbuilt 'B' series is designed for a full masonry enclosure and chimney and only requires a single active flue to the top of the chimney where it should have at least one outer flue and the correct size anti-downdraught cowl. The top section should be totally waterproofed.

The Heatmaster inbuilt 'A' series is designed as a zero clearance unit to be housed in cabinetry or a timber framed enclosure. All zero clearance wood heaters must be triple flued from heater to hat. Check flue sizes below as the different sized boxes run different size flues.

Heatmaster 450..................6" or 150mm
Heatmaster 650..................7" or 175mm
Heatmaster 750..................8" or 200mm
Heatmaster 900..................8" or 200mm

* When we refer to a triple system, we have one active flue with two outer casings or outer flues with a 2 inch diameter difference between them and spacers over a longer run. So if you are running a heater with a 6" or 150mm spigot then you would also run an 8" and 10" through any combustible penetration.

Gas fireplaces are available in two styles, the open gas convection boxes or the glass fronted sealed units. Some are available with pebbles, logs or coals and generally the sealed gas fires are the more efficient.

Gas fireplaces are all different in their installation and flueing requirements but all these specifications are listed on the heater pages. If you're not sure, contact us .

The gas fireplaces listed on these pages are all tested and approved for the Australian market and all are flued so you won't have any problems with emissions or unburned gas fumes escaping into your living space.

Some of these gas flame fires are extremely efficient and some not so. You will notice that some companies call their fireplaces 'decorative' or 'ambient'. This means that not a great deal of heat is produced but they are intended more as a visual fireplace and there are some great looking styles available. Check on the relevant gas heater pages as the output or heating capacity will be listed. Most gas fires are available as zero clearance for flexibility of installation.

The gas fire brands we sell are Escea, Lopi, Regency, DaVinci, Kalfire and Ortal 

We know that most of you will want great looks and plenty of heat so there is a good selection here that will meet both criteria and most importantly, they are available at the right price. If you find a better price on anything on these pages, let us know - we'll beat it!

The wood heaters represented on these pages are the best quality available in Australia today!

We are constantly researching fireplaces of all descriptions and we are confident that all the wood heaters and gas fires on these pages are the best in their class and will provide long and trouble free service.

The wood heater manufacturers listed here have different style heaters so the following guide will help. The four main styles of wood heaters are :-

  • Freestanding wood heaters.....Morso, Lopi, Regency, Hergom, Invicta, ADF, Clean Air, Jindara, Eureka, Focus, Austroflamm and Heatmaster
  • Inbuilt wood heaters.....Regency, Lopi, Eureka, Heatmaster, Jindara, Hergom and Clean Air
  • 2 door....Only Eureka and Jindara.
  • Zero clearance....Regency, CleanAir, Jindara, Eureka and Heatmaster.
  • Suspended....Focus.

All these styles can be achieved with open fireboxes or the all time favorites, the slow combustion wood heater. All except 2 door of course, which are available only as slow combustion (or wood heater with a sealed door).

Zero clearance wood fires are simply insulated fireboxes that are designed to be 'boxed' into a timber or metal framed surround and triple flued to create the inbuilt fireplace look. Some like the Heatmaster A series insulated fireboxes can also be freestanding.

Almost every fireplace requires some accessories such as a fire screen and fire tools and some just need a good dress up. Have a look through our 'General Information' section for all your fireplace accessories and general fireplace information.

The fireplace accessories section contains everything you may need for your fireplace operation and maintenance. 
Fireplace mantelpieces are available for most applications but please check with us for current status.

Abbey Fireplaces also represent wood fired and electric cookers by Esse and Thermalux

All gas fires should be installed by an accredited tradesman in accordance with local codes if any or to ANSI Z223.1 - 1992 and NFPA 54(88) and the requirements listed in the owners manual.

All wood heater installations should be carried out by a licenced tradesman in accordance with AS 2918.
