As a guide the minimum info we require is the inside diameter of the twin wall required, overall chimney height and height of floors, ceilings and roofs (if applicable) that will be penetrated by the chimney, and wall thickness if chimney is to penetrate external wall. Tee's and bends for chimney alignment are available.

Case Studies


Every picture tells a story. Case study 1, October 2012

Wanting his Villager stove and Selkirk chimney installed by a professional company this client near Argentan (dept 61) awarded the contract to Wood Stove Studio in September 2012.

Our case pictures illustrate the flue pipe exiting the rear of the stove via a TEE with plug (this facilitates easy cleaning of the flue).

Selkirk chimney case study


Chimney alignment has been achieved by means of two 45 degree elbows, these also ensure a smooth air flow for the flue gasses as the single skin black pipe connects beneath the ceiling into the Selkirk twin wall chimney.

Heat can be harvested off the Selkirk chimney at the upper level and will probably yield 1kW to that area for free!

Other benefits of siting the twin wall chimney inside means the chimney will not cool down as it would if exiting the property outside at ground floor level, thus reducing the cooling effect that can lead to tar and condensates building up.

The chimney exits the roof of the property by means of a special roof flashing terminating with a stainless steel rain cap and is virtually inconspicuous.

The positioning of the Selkirk pipe on upper level was determined at a pre installation survey meeting with the client, taking into account fixing points for the stability of the chimney and its path between floor joists and roof trusses. The stove position was also critical to the client so the flue pipe at ground level had to be carefully designed to meet with regulations and safety considerations.

These photos illustrate the stove and flue pipe with "pink" (rose) plaster boarding to the rear of the stove; eventually the client will complete his feature canopy with some cherished timbers respecting clearances from the stove and chimney prior to final decoration.

Case study 2, April 2013

This customer near L'Aigle (department 61) contacted Wood Stove Studio having read our Selkirk Case Study 1 and immediately recognised his requirement was similar.

Nearing completion of his self-build house it was time to commence the secondary finishings and, uncertain of the best position to site a wood burning stove, our expertise was welcomed.

The design of the property is open plan so it is essential that the stove be positioned to not only be visually attractive but to maximise heat to the main lounge area. An integral part of the build brief was to maximise thermal efficiency of the property by using double glazing and the best insulation materials available for the walls and roof. The thermal efficiency was crucial in calculating the kilowatts required for the wood burning stove, also this initial investment will ensure ongoing fuel bills are minimised. This client made a conscious decision not to build a conventional masonry chimney from the outset in favour of using a Twin Wall chimney recognising not only the financial saving on construction cost but flexibility in positioning the stove and chimney where it would suit their life style best once the property layout had been refined. During our visit technique we discussed many possibilities eventually concluding that the stove and an internal Selkirk chimney would fulfil all of our client's requirements sited in the corner of the main lounge area. The route of the Selkirk twin wall chimney would not obstruct the layout of the upper floor and as in Case Study 1 the internal chimney will yield at least 1 kw of heat for free to the upper floor and will ensure the chimney does not cool down as it would if externally sited.

Unusually the property has a tin roof. Aesthetically looking like terracotta pan tiles (in keeping with the local architecture) this modern product was specifically chosen as it reduced the timber content of the roof structure - another Eco friendly choice in the construction materials used. This presented a new challenge at the roof penetration point of the twin wall chimney; a solution was soon found from our UK supplier by means of a special roof flashing kit, the end result looking very neat.

Case study 3, May 2013

Our latest Selkirk case study illustrates how we found a cost effective solution to this customer's multi faceted requirement to supply a Range Cooker with boiler that has the capacity to heat 4 radiators and provide domestic hot water for the family as well as looking good in this traditional Normandie farm house kitchen.

The biggest challenge being that this 3 level property had no existing masonry chimney.

Following our visite technique (site survey) our recommendation was the ESSE Ironnheart EWB range cooker with integral boiler. This traditional style cooker was exactly what our client was looking for. The location of the cooker then determined the position of the chimney, our Selkirk twin wall modular chimney offered the solution as this could be routed vertically through the floors and ceilings within the house with the upper rooms benefitting from the heat being radiated off the chimney for free!

The only visible part of the chimney exiting the roof near to the ridge was on the rear of the house so visually very discreet.

Case study 4, June 2013

Stovax "Stockton 6 Highline" and Selkirk twin wall chimney.

Having supplied and installed a Stovax Riva Plus Grande in this clients lounge in 2011 to replace a "smokey" open fire and supplement his oil central heating, he reported that in less than 3 years the whole cost of this stove and installation would be recovered by savings on oil usage alone. Recognising the other rooms of the property had no chimney but wishing to make further financial savings on oil we were invited to offer any suggestions on how to and where would be best to install a second stove.

The general remit was for a "background" heat but in two adjacent rooms. After some deliberation and input from our customer it was decided that the entrance hall would be the most suitable location.

To make a feature and focal point in the hall the Stovax Stockton 6 Highline was chosen. With a nominal 6kW out put and high level firebox this elegant stove met all the criteria. To allow the heat to circulate into the adjacent rooms the client removed a small section of plaster leaving the old timbers exposed on either side of the stove. This additional feature allowing more natural light in the hall and further enhancing the new stove.

Selkirk pipe inside cupboardIf desired air flow by means of an Eco Fan placed upon the stove would prioritise the heat to the room of choice.

The flue pipe at ground level is enamelled single skin pipe colour coded to match the stove, and the heat off this pipe will be supplementary to that of the stove.

On the landing the Selkirk twin wall pipe is discreetly located in an open cupboard (and will yield about 1 kW for free) prior to it exiting the roof space.

The external part of the chimney terminates with an anti downdraft cowl and storm collar (as depicted).

By design this chimney installation is visually discreet both inside and outside the property, plus the heat from the outer skin will naturally heat the hall and landing for free and will ensure the chimney is not cooled down as it would have been if constructed externally.

We were complimented by the customer on how neat the installation is and on how quickly the desired areas heat up.
