To strengthen flue pipe connections use short metal to metal self tappers, available in our Useful Items collection.
As with all vitreous pipe the bottom end narrows to a lesser diameter to enable insertion into other pieces of pipe (male is always on top). Key reason is that any condensation that trickles down inside pipe cannot escape. Straight lengths can be cut using a grinder and 115mm cutting disc (available from this online store).

Ordered items from Stove Fitters Warehouse and the service could not be bettered... well packed, great quality, and great service. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone thinking of fitting their own stove to read this site.
Customers need to be clear what they are buying when purchasing flue liner from Stove Fitter's Warehouse. Whilst their website and advice sheets infer that Duraflue 904 is 904/904 (i.e. 904 grade stainless on both inner and outer surfaces), it is in fact 904/316 grade (904 inner and 316 outer). An email from Julian confirmed this (once I had purchased and questioned the product) and stated "Duraflue market their products as "904" or "316" and we present exactly what they state". When asked why customers are mislead into thinking they are buying 904/904, Julian replied" Why do we not follow this 316/316 316/904 904/904 etc. sort of routine? We used to but it just confused many customers" Make sure you are happy with 904/316 before you buy. Do not be patronised and mislead by Stove Fitter's Warehouse and Duraflue and believe you are buying a better product than you actually are.
3 builders told me they couldn't modify the opening. They wanted nearly £5k to knock down and rebuild my chimney and then fit a stove. After reading the stove fitters manual and getting advice from Julian I'm sat toasty warm waiting for the plasterers to finish the skim.
Excellent products, great quality and great customer service. Don't shop anywhere else!
I phoned STOVE FITTERS for some advice before buying an adjustable 6" heavy grade flue pipe that i needed. I found they were very polite, very knowledgeable, very helpful. The pipes arrived quickly & were well packed. Following the advice given, the pipes were soon fitted and sealed. Would i use stove fitters again? Oh Yes. Sure would.
Great service & good quality products.
