I intend to install a 5Kw wood stove in my lean-to conservatory; with regards to the flue pipe I am aware that I need triple wall and a chimney assembly with roof and collar flashing.
I would like to use conventional (single wall) stovepipe. In the connection to the fire and for about the first metre upwards, are triple and single wall pipes inter-connectable?

Answer:Yes, you may use single-wall stovepipe up to the ceiling of the room where the stove is installed, and then a conversion to triple-wall Class A chimney pipe can be made. This would occur at a ceiling support box, which would also serve as the primary support for the chimney system.
