1. Plate that takes the weight that goes on top (on joists or wooden floor) and has little upstands of metal to differentiate it from (3)
2.Clamp to stop twin wall falling through (1)
3. Cover plate so everything looks neat on the ceiling.

Looking up we would see something like this... polythene would not be in hole of course. The flue would be at least 7cm from the wood and hence you should see no cobustible materials through those events!
Top tip: No fire cement or glue of any kind is used when connecting twin wall pipe to twin wall pipe - it is just push-fit (with a locking band for added security). When to use fire cement on flue joints? Use the SEARCH function and type "sealing flue joints".
This is a twin wall clip-together chimney part used to build a new chimney. Twin wall clip-together chimney can be as close as 5-7cm to combustible materials (so is also useful for adding atop a stove to bypass a wooden beam).
