I'm trying to connect a drt40stdm that has secureflex 4.5x7.5 to an existing vent that is heatilator or monesen sl348 10.5x8.
Can you help me find an adaptor?
No adapter will be available and you will have to use the SecureFlex or SecureVent venting components for the entirety of the vent run.

I've got a Superior BC-42 fireplace that I installed 10 yrs ago. I think I need to extend the pipe higher because when the wind is out of the south the smoke comes back in the house. The cap is not above the highest point of the roof. It is 12' from the ridge and is 3' above the roof. If I raise it higher will this fix the problem?

I have a small, custom built wood stove that vents vertically with 6" black.stovepipe. In the building in which I have the stove, we have no ceiling, so the stovepipe will go straight up to the underside of (and through) the roof. I have all the regular stove pipe for form the wood stove up to the roof, but I think I need a piece where the pipe goes through the roof that (A) needs to be double-walled (to prevent setting the wood roof supports on fire) and (B) accommodates the angle of the roof. Is there a piece made just fort that? And if so, what is it called? Thank you.
Yes, you will need a cathedral ceiling support box, which would be mounted into your roof deck. This part will serve as the transition from the single wall pipe to double wall class A pipe that can run through the box and above your roof. Please note that the box you select will dictate the brand of class A pipe you will need to use, as these are not universal.

I am planning on replacing my wood burning stove with a direct vent gas log stove. My question is about the venting. Can I re-purpose the 6" stove pipe I already have installed by adding a 4" flexible pipe inside it and mate both to the new direct vent gas stove?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to attach a direct vent unit to the chimney you currently have installed. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I'm looking to direct vent through the wall with my Napoleon XIR3NSB gas fireplace. Please specify the proper vent kit/accessories to accomplish it. Thank you.
As this can only be installed inside an existing masonry fireplace, it can not be vented horizontally.

We have a Majestic RFDV22 RN fireplace, that we are looking for additional pipe for. It seems to be obsolete in most places. It's the 7 inch pipe with the 4 inch inside, no twist lock. We have the venting items, we are only in need of more pipe. Could you help me find either an adapter to use the newer pipe or if you have the pipe that we need.

I am replacing a wood burning free standing fireplace with pipe through the ceiling with a new pellet stove that requires a 3 inch pipe. Can this vent through the ceiling as well as the old free standing one did? Or, do I have to get a kit that vents through the wall?
You can vent a pellet stove vertically through the ceiling.

How far through the roof does the pipe have to be for a direct vent fireplace on a pitched roof ?
The distance required above your roof line is determined by the manufacturer of your direct vent appliance and the requirements stated in the owner's manual.
