UNIQUE INSTALLATION BENEFITS WITH PLASTIC FLUE

Small diameter (50mm) PVC-C waste pipe is the sole requirement for the innovative new flue and air intake system. Vertically or horizontally, the flue can be extended up to 20 metres from the boiler allowing for easy and hassle-free installation, and up to 60m using 70mm Keston composite flue. The boiler can therefore be sited in the most convenient and practical locations.

The standard PVC-C waste pipe is a fraction of the cost of conventional flues and is available from all Builders merchants- therefore no more waiting days for traditional flue system extensions.

5 FLUE Q&A

Q: Does Keston really use standard kitchen waste pipe for its flueing system?
A: Yes – we use standard 50mm PVC­C wastepipe to BS EN 1566 (previously BS 5255), available from buildersÇ and plumbersÇ merchants at around £3.50 per metre.
Q: Is there a maximum number of bends that I can use?
A: You are limited by the flue length required. For longer lengths you can select the Keston composite flue system.
Q: Does each tube need to be the same length?
A: No. You can draw air for combustion from one source and the flue products go elsewhere.
Q: How long can I run this flue system?
A: Maximum length for standard 50mm wastepipe is 20m, vertically or horizontally. Our composite flue extends up to 60m.
Q: If I run the flue vertically to avoid pluming, can I draw the combustion air from the ground floor?
A: Yes.
