In this short video I’ll give you a run down of all the items included in the DuraTech Chimney Cathedral Ceiling Support Kit from DuraVent.
The cathedral ceiling support kit is perfect for installations where you’ll be running your chimney pipe through a cathedral ceiling or for mobile home installations.
Note: It is perfectly fine to use the square ceiling support box in a flat ceiling installation as well if you prefer a square support box vs. a round support box.
Here’s a diagram of a typical installation:
The Cathedral Ceiling Support Kit Includes:
- 1 Chimney Cap With Spark Arrestor
- 1 Storm Collar
- 1 Roof Flashing
- 1 Square Ceiling Support Box
- 1 Stove Pipe Adapter
The only things you’ll need to add to complete your installation are lengths of stove pipe and DuraPlus chimney pipe as well as any other accessories you might need like extended roof supports, elbows for an offset, or snow diverters. This kit contains all the major components of your chimney installation making it simple to plan and install.
Planning Your Chimney Installation Using The DuraTech Square Ceiling Support Kit
If you’re still in the planning phase of your wood stove installation here are some tips.
- Read all instruction manuals for your wood stove, fireplace, or appliance and take notes of all the restrictions like clearances to combustibles, clearances to windows and doors, etc.
- Some Cathedral ceilings are built with very little space between the ceiling and roof while others have a large amount of space. If you have access to an attic that allows you to get a visual of the area you plan to install your chimney be sure to crawl up there and take measurements if possible to assure you purchase the correct size support box height.
- Make sure to take the time to crawl up on your roof, measure the roof pitch if you don’t already know it, and look for other vents, electrical wiring, telephone wires, and any other obstructions that might hinder your installation. Note: Don’t forget to take measurements to determine how much chimney pipe you’ll need above your roof.
