Dear NACE Technical

We have recently looked at a job where there is a large inglenook fireplace (our client is considering a stove) with a masonry flue shaft serving this area of approximately 325mm by 325mm.

Our client wants us to install two stainless steel liners into an a flue at present serving an inglenook fireplace, I have told the client it is not possible to use two separate liners, one for a stove and one for an Aga in the same flue shaft. He has had two alternative quotes, one telling him the Aga doesnt need a liner and is fine and the other saying that two flexible liners surrounded by vermiculite is acceptable.

My understanding is it is not, (section 1.25 ADJ). I have been told however that a flexible liner with a twin wall flue system in the same masonry flue shaft is acceptable.

If this is the case, would two pumice lining systems be acceptable as we would be providing two new, permanent flue walls?

Hope you can help
