Factory Built Chimneys
A “factory-built chimney” is one that is manufactured in a factory and assembled at the home site. They are not of solid construction like masonry chimneys and contain airspace between the flue and the exterior walls of the chimney.
Factory built chimneys are basically kits that are assembled, rather than constructed from scratch, at the home site. Their flues are generally made of at least two metal flue pipes made of aluminum or stainless steel, one inside the other and separated by an insulating material. Some have a third metal shield around those, separated from the two inner pipes by airspace. With the use of the proper standoffs and shields, they can be put through walls, floors, and roofs.
Factory built, prefabricated chimneys offer an economical, non-masonry option for adding a chimney to an existing home. Both types of chimneys require annual inspections and cleanings to keep them safe and functioning properly.
