WALL PENETRATIONS
It is critical that any wall penetrations are located correctly.
CAUTION
The enclosure dimensions specified are critical to the successful installation of this appliance
and MUST BE strictly adhered to.
Ensure there are no wall studs, noggins, wiring or other obstruction within the wall cavity where
the flue is proposed to penetrate.
Ensure the location of the flue terminal can comply with the requirements of AS/NZS 5601. Figure
6.2 from AS/NZS 5601 and additional information is shown on page 4.
Especially relevant is the requirement to have a minimum of 300mm clearance between the flue
terminal and the finished ground level. It is not permissible to excavate a hole to obtain the
required 300mm clearance, unless there is sufficient drainage provision.
Ensure the penetration points are marked accurately as this is critical for successful appliance
installation.
The penetration for the flue pipe only needs to be made for ‘Direct’ and ‘Direct Extended’ flue
installations, where the flue terminal is located directly to the rear of the appliance.
If no flue pipe penetration is required the markings are still useful for indicating the correct
position of flue exhaust connection of ‘Sideways’, ‘External Wall’, ‘Internal Wall’ and ‘Under Floor’
flue applications.
IMPORTANT
When creating penetrations for flue system installations other than ‘Direct’ and ‘Direct
Extended’ the minimum diameter required for the wall penetration of PVC external pipes is 80mm.
On all ‘Sideways’ and ‘Under Floor’ flue applications, allow for a continuous 2° fall from the
heater connection point to the wall terminal.

The creation of the horizontal section of flue installation is the same as creating a DIRECT or DIRECT EXTENDED
flue installations with the following exceptions:
The direction of horizontal fall of the flue pipe is reversed. For Wall External flue installations, a 2° fall is
required from the wall penetration towards the heater.
An ESBEND rather than a mushroom flue terminal is fitted at the end of the horizontal flue run.
Sections of flue installation located outside require the following precautions:
CAUTION
ONLY use PVC cement between joints of the 'outer' PVC flue pipes to secure and seal these
joints against ingress of dust and water.
ONLY use non acidic silicone sealant between the joints of 'outer' PVC flue pipes and any
mating aluminium components (such as the condensate trap) to secure and seal these joints
against ingress of dust and water. Silicone containing acetic acid (vinegar) or other acids as the
curing agent may cause corrosion of aluminium components and must not be used.
