For vertical gas stove installations, measure the height from the stove outlet to the ceiling to determine the length of black pipe required. Select a ceiling support/wall thimble cover or a cathedral ceiling support box.
Determine the length of galvanized pipe required by measuring the ceiling thickness and the vertical rise in an attic or second story. Firestops are necessary at each floor level beyond the first-floor ceiling support/wall thimble cover or cathedral ceiling support box. If an offset is needed to avoid obstructions, use a pair of 45° elbows and proper support.
Measure the roof pitch and select the appropriate flashing and storm collar. Ensure the minimum height above the roof is met.
For horizontal installations, consult the appliance manufacturer's instructions for minimum rise and maximum horizontal run. A snorkel termination may be used if height restrictions apply. Select the appropriate Horizontal Termination Cap as per the appliance manufacturer's installation instructions.
To protect vinyl siding, consider a vinyl siding standoff. Always refer to the appliance manufacturer's instructions for wall thimble and firestop requirements.
