Excel Wall Radiation Shield and Trim
EXCEL chimney is specifically engineered for wood burning stoves, fireplaces and residential furnaces and it is suitable for use on appliances that burn:
- Wood - Oil - Coal - Gas - Charcoal
Allowable Flue Gas Temperatures
Max Continuous 650°C (1200°F)
Brief Forced Firing 925°C (1700°F)
Tested To 1150°C (2100°F)
Clearance to Combustible Materials
2" clearance except in areas protected by factory-built supports certified for reduced clearance. EXCEL round and square supports permit the chimney to be installed with approximately 1 inch of clearance - in the area shielded by the support.
Flue: .016" stainless steel
Casing: .016" stainless steel
Seam: Interior and exterior seams are continuous seam welded
Insulation: Thermoplus continuous blanket
Wall thickness: 1"
Paint: All black EXCEL components are painted with Forrest “Stove Bright” flat black paint
The wall radiation shield (also known as the wall thimble) is used when the chimney passes horizontally through a combustible wall. The EWRS telescopes to adjust for wall thickness from 6" – 12", so no painting is required. The inside finish trim is separate from the EWRS, allowing for easy installation before or after the wall finish is applied. The Insulated Wall Radiation Shield - aka Thimble (EWRSI) is designed for installations in energy efficient houses which have tightly sealed vapour barriers. The EWRSI is fully insulated and has a flange to permit an air tight seal to the vapour barrier. It can be installed into an existing home but since it must be installed under the drywall it is most often used for new construction. Flue extention and trim ring included.
The Stainless Trim (EST) for the EWRS is a decorative trim cover for the exterior wall plate of the Wall Radiation Shield (Wall Thimble) that prevents water infiltration while providing adequate heat ventilation. It covers the existing galvalume exterior plate of the EWRS for a more decorative look.
