I own a Vermont Casting stove and I need an oval to round adapter to fit the 8" piping. This fits into the stove outlet piping. It is standard 24 gauge piping. Can you help?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 1, 2013
After checking with our suppliers, they have confirmed that only the double wall adapter is currently available for the Vermont Castings stoves. It is the Dura-Vent DVL 8-Inch Vermont Castings Oval to Round Pipe Adaptor
. I apologize that we do not currently offer the single wall variety. It may be available from a local Vermont Castings dealer or it could be custom fabricated to fit your stove.

How close can steel stud framing, and cement board be next to this pipe?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 7, 2013
Answer:Class A pipe requires 2 inches of clearance to any obstruction, combustible or not. The reason for this is that the pipe requires 2 inches of air space to properly dissipate heat. Any obstructions in this space can be heated to dangerous temperatures and potentially radiate heat to nearby combustibles.
