From the spec on the back of my wood heater pamphlet it appears that the depth of the heath is 90mm I was also told that the heater should be from anything combustible. I am getting a woodheater and need to know requirements for hearths already have a chimney and the required distances that combustibles need to be kept. As above it says how far it has to be from the wall, but not much else. That said though, the flue kit is coming from the installer as a separate line item in the bill, and they sell separately again 2 metres of flexible flue liner. Originally Posted by Rambi.

Plumber insists that I put extra fibro and tiling to make it comply but manufacturer only gives clearances with and without a flue shield. Many of which will be speculations and myths. A code of practice is as2918 set of rules which details how people in a certain industry should behave. Which in the grand scheme of as2918 is pocket change when you consider how much a wood heater is but still AS and installation of a wood as2918 Also cannot afford to buy AS just to answer one question before I install my wood heater.

It also sets out alternative means of compliance via performance testing of a prototype installation or the use of prescriptive criteria dimension, materials, etc based on a worst as2918 situation.
Although I guess this is as2918 if there is a firewall of some sort.

They said they would. Clearances as2918 between brands and models, some brands give sa2918 clearance options without flue shield, with flue shield and even double flue shields. So in theory, yes. Manufacturer’s installation state minimum clearances and make no mention of extra cladding on as2918 wall behind the heater. We do not recommend you install the as2918 heater yourself because you will find your insurance company will not ad2918 you should anything occur due to as2918 installation.
Hi Anyone got a copy of this Australian Standard that they would be willing to let me have please?

You may also find that in NSW you are required to notify the council if you are installing a wood heater and must have this as2918 by a person who is qualified to do so. Sadly i can’t get the flexible flue lining anywhere, so I am struggling with the whole project now. Yes, I can call the installers and ask them but As2918 like to find things out for myself as well.

With a Cert 4 to access to rules, Cert 4 to read the rules, and a valid tender process to have someone follow the rules. I don’t see why they wouldn’t sell it independently.
