Typical Installations


Using the Typical Venting Installation drawings, select the appropriate component parts for your installation.

DVL/DuraBlack Chimney Adapter must be used when connecting DVL pipe to a ceiling support box or finishing collar. When connecting DuraBlack pipe, a DuraBlack Slip Connector or Snap-Lock Adapter must be used.

Wall Thimble must be installed with an appropriate length of chimney pipe for all horizontal through-the-wall installations. To accommodate thicker walls, the telescoping pieces can be separated, and a field-fabricated extension may be installed.

Attic Insulation Shield must be used in all installations that pass through an attic, regardless of the attic insulation.

Firestop Radiation Shield must be used when a chimney passes through a floor or ceiling without a support box.
