TERMINALS AND CONVERSES

CHIMNEY CAP KIT
MAIN FEATURES
  • Made of stainless steel or galvanized sheet metal;
  • Adaptable to all situations
  • Quick and easy to mount
  • Pleasant and innovative design

The Architectural Terminals/Chimeny Cap series produced by Fibrotubi S.r.l. includes all those devices that, placed on the end of a chimney/flue, allow dispersion of the stack effluents even when atmospheric conditions are bad. The features that characterise this series are:

  • a useful outlet section that is no less than double that of the chimney/flue it is fitted on;
  • so shaped to stop any rain and snow from getting inside the chimney/flue;
  • it is made so that, even with winds from any direction or angle, the evacuation of stack effluents is always guaranteed.

STAINLESS STEEL converse for expanded clay chimneys

Tek Inspectionable terminal

Coppo Inspectionable terminal

It is possible to create a flue duct building a chimney with the elements in expanded clay using the terminal converse that connects and allows the fitting of the stainless steel chimney using the appropriate locking clamp.

NOTE: Also available to complete the terminal/chimney, flat and/or sloping converse from 15° to 20° with waterproof membrane.

Remember that the chimneys must have no mechanical suction aids and, moreover, it is also important to remember that the outlet height is found by measuring the minimum height between the roof covering and the bottom point where the smoke/fumes are let into the atmosphere.
For suction pressure flue systems, this height must be outside the so-called minimum distance to avoid the formation of back pressures that would impede the free evacuation of stack effluents into the atmosphere.
