Hello and welcome. No Chimney? No Problem. Let’s take a look at the Stovax Professional XQ twin walled flue system. Used when a wood burning or multifuel stove is required but no conventional chimney stack is present within the property.
Simply Stoves on Stovax
Stovax began their Professional XQ flue system in June 2011 with the promise of a high quality product attainable only through their network of trusted authorized distributors.
Simply Stoves have long been one of the leading suppliers of the Stovax stoves range in the UK. Our decision to change from another flue system brand to Professional XQ was an easy one based on Stovax’ reputation for superior craftsmanship, high quality materials and technical innovation.
Twin Wall Flue Systems
A large amount of new homes are void of a useable chimney. In some cases, no chimney is incorporated at all. As a result, demand for twin wall flue systems have increased rapidly in recent years.
The beauty of the Stovax Professional XQ flue system is that it is now possible to have a stove installed safely and legally into almost any type of property. The flue can be fed externally and up through the outside wall. Alternatively, they can be fed internally through the building and out through a pitched or flat roof.
Each Stovax Professional XQ flue component features a Twist-Lock locking system which combined with the supplied locking bands offers a solid, weatherproof seal to each joint meaning it is suitable for internal and external applications.
High Grade Stainless Steel
Each flue part is made from high grade stainless steel. Involved is a 316L inner wall for maximum corrosion resistance and a 304L highly polished outer skin for a contemporary style. The two layers are then insulated with a high density, 25mm ceramic mineral wool insulation. Insulation effectively allows the flue components to be installed with a minimal air gap of 5omm from any combustible material.
Unlike other flue systems on the market, the inner insulation is protected by a formed stainless steel capping. This capping allows for safe handling of the product and helps protect the installer of any risks from sharp flue edges.
We favour the Stovax Professional XQ system above other flue brands due to the abundance of supportive components available. These additional products are why Stovax is at the forefront of design and technological advancement within the heating industry. The innovation of the Professional XQ system is testament to the commitment of Stovax to constantly improve and develop their products.
Decorative Single to Twin Adaptor/Increaser
Single to twin adaptos/increases are a decorative component designed to improve the connection between single skin enamelled flue pipe and the Stovax Professional XQ Chimney System. Insert single skin enamelled flue pipe into the adaptor to give a completely seamless join. For total flexibility, Stovax also offer an “increasing” version of this product. Use this for connecting 125mm single skin vitreous flue to a 150mm Stovax Professional XQ system.
Decorative Ceiling Cover Plate
The Decorative Ceiling Cover plate is an innovative component designed to eradicate the issue of unsightly ventilated fire plates. The plate is made up of two separate parts. The second “decorative” section held into place using strong magnets thus eliminating the need for any visible fixings within the room.
Base Socket/Spigot Plate
Base sockets / spigot plates offer extended support when combined with a base, intermediate wall support plate and brackets. Consequently, this allows up to 12m of Professional XQ chimney to be supported safely. Use externally below a tee piece section when a solid support is required to support the flue system above.
Decorative Vaulted Roof Support
Robust and secure, the Decorative Vaulted Roof Support can support the weight of up to 9m of your flue system. This component stabilizes your installation down to 6m below the support and up to 3m above it. However, flue systems extended more than 3m vertically need Roof Bracing Kits fitted to offer further support.
Roof Bracing Kit
The Stovax Roof Bracing Kit is an excellent addition to the Professional XQ range. This is a practical way to support the flue system as it extends through roof tiles. Roof bracing kits are required for flue systems that extend 2m or more through the roof. This is to give a solid fixing via adjustable anchor poles with integrated anchor plates.

Stovax distribute their Professional XQ flue system through a series of authorized distributors. These experienced, independent retailers can discuss your personal requirements on both the correct Stovax flue system, and stove, for you.
