30% quicker installation — SFL’s Nova chimney system.
Installation times for metal flues can be reduced by up to 30% using SFL’s new Nova system. This close-coupled, fully welded, pre-fabricated, twin-wall insulated stainless-steel chimney system is suitable for multi-fuel application where the chimney operates under dry and negative-pressure applications. Fitting a seal enables the product to be used for positive pressure and wet applications. At the heart of the system is a twist-lock coupler, which offers an efficient jointing system and the ability to achieve 3 m unsupported above the last support. Nova offers a fully welded grade 316 liner and grade 304 stainless-steel outer case with a 25 mm mineral-wool annulus, which is augur filled to a density of around 290 kg/m3.
