INSTRUCTIONS
1700ºF Air-Cooled and Insulated
ECO-STEEL Chimney Size 13”
Listing No. MH8251
Tested to UL103/ULC-S604
A MAJOR CAUSE OF CHIMNEY RELATED FIRES IS FAILURE TO MAINTAIN REQUIRED
CLEARANCE (AIR SPACES) TO COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL*. MINIMUM CLEARANCE FOR
13” DIAMETER AIR-COOLED AND INSULATED ECO-STEEL CHIMNEY IS TWO (2) INCHES. IT IS
OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT THIS CHIMNEY IS INSTALLED ONLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH
THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
*Combustible material is defined as material made of , or surfaced with, wood, compressed paper, plant fibers, plastic, or other material that will ignite and
burn, whether flame proofed or not , or plastered or not plastered.
The ECO-Steel Air-Cooled and Insulated Chimney is intended for use on Isokern fireplaces. Do not use with forced draft or positivepressure appliances. The ECO-Steel Air-Cooled and Insulated chimney system is designed to extend a maximum of 60 feet vertically and
with a maximum of one (1) offset (two elbows total) of up to 30° from vertical. Contact Local Building or Fire Officials about restrictions
and installation inspection in your area. These instructions must be followed in all details and failure to do so may result in a hazardous
installation.
WARNING: If decorative shrouds are being used with ECO-Steel Chimney, Reference the ECO-Steel Addendum L2876.
OPERATIONAL PRECAUTIONS & MAINTENANCE:
ECO-Steel Air-Cooled and Insulated Chimney is not designed for use on products that operate at continuous temperatures in
excess of 1000°F. “Keep these instructions for future use.”
WARNING: Do not mix ECO-Steel Air-Cooled and Insulated Chimney components.
Creosote and Soot – Formation and Need for Removal:
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine with expelled moisture to create creosote.
The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of the slow burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates
on the flue lining. When ignited, the creosote makes an extremely hot fire. The chimney should be inspected at least once every two
(2) months during the heating season to determine if a creosote or soot buildup has occurred. If creosote or soot has accumulated,
it should be removed to reduce the risk of chimney fire.
Chimneys must be installed so that access is provided for inspection and cleaning.
Never fill any required clearance space with insulation or any other building materials surrounding the chimney.
Do not use a fireplace for food grilling. Grease from foods can collect in chimney causing fireplace to become a potential fire hazard.
Some chemical Chimney cleaners can be harmful to the chimney. These cause accelerated oxidation or corrosion. If chemical
cleaners are used, they must be non-corrosive in nature. If a brush is used, it must be of proper size with plastic bristles. Have your
chimney cleaned by a professional, certified chimney sweep.
If a flue fire occurs, close all possible air inlets, and call your Fire Department. Do not use the chimney again until it has been
inspected by a Certified Chimney Sweep for possible damage.
Exterior metal parts, with exception of the top portion of the chimney cap, can be painted with a high temperature rust proof paint.
Wash the metal surface with a vinegar and water solution to remove any residue before painting. Painting the chimney will help to
increase chimney life.
Earthcore assumes no liability for structural damage or roof contamination as the result of creosote formation. It is the owner’s
responsibility to comply with inspection and cleaning requirements as described in these instructions, and those of the appliance
manufacturer.

CHIMNEY DIAMETER:
ISOKERN FIREPLACE INSTALLATION:
Follow the fireplace manufacturer’s manual to
determine required chimney diameter and clearances
between combustible materials and your fireplace.
Never use a chimney with an inside diameter smaller
than your firebox flue opening unless specifically
allowed by the fireplace manufacturer.
Place Fireplace: Position according to the fireplace
manufacturer’s installation instructions. The flue outlet
should be placed between the rafters or joists above,
if possible.
CHIMNEY ENCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS:
Interior chimneys shall be enclosed where they
extend through closets, storage areas, occupied
spaces, or anywhere the surface of the chimney could
be contacted by persons or combustible materials.
The air space between the outer wall of the chimney
and the enclosure shall not be less than 2 inches.
WARNING: Do not place any type of insulation or
other materials in the required clearance spaces
surrounding the chimney assembly.
Except for installation in one or two family dwellings,
a factory built chimney that extends through any
zone above that on which the connected appliance is
located is to be provided with an enclosure having a
fire resistance rating equal to or greater than that of
the floor or roof assemblies through which it passes.
In cold climates, chimneys mounted on an outside wall
should be enclosed in a chase. Exterior chases reduce
condensation, creosote formation and enhance draft.
Chimney components intended for exterior
installation must be marked “Suitable for Interior or
Exterior Installation”.
INSTALLATION RECOMMENDATIONS:
Proper planning for your ECO-Steel Air-Cooled and
Insulated Chimney installation will result in greater
safety, efficiency and convenience. You must use
only ECO-Steel Chimney parts and components
to maintain a listed chimney system. Do not mix
ECO‑Steel Air-Cooled and ECO‑Steel Insulated
Chimney parts or try to match with other products or
use improvised solutions.
Determine Chimney Size: Follow the fireplace
manufacturer’s instructions for chimney size.
Mount Anchor Plate: Chimneys for Isokern fireplaces
with ECO-Steel begin with an Anchor Plate or Anchor
Plate with Damper.
It is important that the surface of the Isokern chimney
has a level surface on which to attach the Anchor Plate.
If the top of the Isokern does not have a level surface,
then it will need to be modified accordingly. Center
the Isowool blanket over Isokern Top Plate hole and
trace outline of hole with a pen or marker. Cut a hole in
the blanket to match the hole in the Isokern top plate.
Center the Isowool blanket over the Isokern Top Plate
flue opening, then center anchor plate over the Isowool
blanket. If a Damper is used, make sure nothing
interferes with the damper plate movement. Secure
the Anchor Plate with four (4) masonry anchors. See
FIG.1. If the Anchor Plate with Damper is installed the
damper should swing freely. When the chain is pulled
down, the damper should close (horizontal position).
When the chain is released (no weight on the chain),
the damper should swing open (vertical position). To
install the lintel hook, place the damper plate in the
closed (horizontal) position. Determine and mark the
position of the lintel hook. The lintel hook should be
mounted in a position so as to provide a small amount
of tension in the spring attached to the chain. See
FIG. 1. The tension is needed to prevent the damper
plate from rattling when closed. Mount the lintel hook
to masonry with the screws provided. Do not obstruct
openings in the anchor plate.
Warning: Do not locate Anchor Plate with Damper in
a location inaccessible for inspection, cleaning and
servicing after installation.

Angle Support and Support Band: Install an Angle Support
if total chimney height is greater than 50 feet, or if the fireplace
manufacturer requires it. If additional support is needed,
install one or more Angle Supports which will support 30
feet of chimney FIG. 5. Slide the Angle Support around the
chimney and align over framed opening. Secure to casing
with (4) sheet metal screws and assemble brackets per
FIG. 6. Nail the brackets to the framing using a minimum of (2)
nails or screws per bracket. A Support Band may be required
by some fireplace manufacturers to keep the chimney
vertical and help maintain clearances to combustibles within
a chase. Clamp the Support Band to the pipe using the nut
and bolt provided and secure legs to nearby framing using
plumbers strap or guy wires. See FIG 7. The Support Band
does not support the weight of the chimney, it is only used to
keep the chimney centered within a chase.

top cover the same diameter as the base of the cone on
the flashing. Attach the Flashing to the top of the chase
cover, sealing with a non-hardening waterproof sealant.
Secure in place with screws or rivets. See FIG. 10.
Attic Insulation Shield: The Attic Insulation Shield must
be installed where the chimney passes into an attic. Its
purpose is to maintain clearances from loose packed or
blown insulation from the chimney. If an Attic Shield is not
used the chimney needs to be enclosed within a framed
enclosure. Always maintain a 2” air-space clearance to
combustibles. Install the shield as follows:
• Remove any insulation or debris from attic floor around
the framed opening.
• Assemble chimney sections above the Firestop to
a height that extends beyond the height of the attic
insulation shield.
• Slip the Attic Insulation Shield over the chimney until
the base sits squarely on the framed opening.
• Secure the Attic Insulation Shield to the top of the
framed opening using nails or screws. See FIG. 8.

Elbow Installation: 15° and 30° elbows are provided to allow chimneys to avoid framing members or roof peaks.
A maximum of 30° from vertical is allowed and a total of two elbows for each chimney installation. A 2” clearance to
combustibles must be maintained. If more than one (1) offset is needed, a mechanical exhaust fan should be used. The
mechanical fan company would determine the viability of performance.
Attach the elbow to the chimney pipe, support or other part. Using the offset chart, add chimney sections between
elbows, total pipe length not to exceed 96 inches. A Support Band or plumbers strap is required for every 4 foot interval
between elbows to support the load as shown in FIG. 12. Attach the upper elbow to bring the chimney back to vertical.
