Can this flex 4x7 pipe be connected to rigid straight 4x7 Directvent pipe? Trying to vent: Unit to flex, flex to vertical run of < 20 feet of 4x7 direct vent pipe lowered in from top of chimney (inside of existing 8" exhaust flue).
I am looking to connect a BL36NTE to flex to make the bend into a vertical masonry chimney thru a horizontal 8" T flue joint / opening to the vertical run to the chimney top. A fee standing wood stove use to vent thru this 8" pipe up thru vertical brick chimney.

Answer:With this and other Napoleon direct vent fireplaces, you may only use the flexible venting manufactured by Napoleon/Wolf Steel in question or rigid pipe made by Simpson Duravent via an adaptor. The DirectVent Pro adaptor would installed at the firebox for rigid venting and there are no transitional components made to go from 4" x 6 5/8" rigid to 4" x 7" flex venting or vice versa.

I would like to know clearance requirements from combustible framing?
By Chris C. on February 4, 2016
Answer:When the venting is running vertically, a 1" clearance is required to any combustible framing materials. If at any point the venting runs horizontally, the venting requires a 3" clearance from the top of the pipe to any combustible framing materials, but the sides and bottom of the venting would still only require a 1" clearance.

We have a Continental free-standing fireplace model CDVS 280-P. It's a vertical direct vent 4" X 7". Currently vented trough a 1 story roof with a 3/12 pitch. We are installing a new roof system, with 8/12 pitched trusses, plywood deck,and metal roof. The new roof will be extending the roof up approx 7' from it existing location. Could you give me a complete parts list with pricing that's required to complete this project .
