InnoFlue® Flex

Material & Construction

InnoFlue® Flex uses industry leading, flame retardant polypropylene technology to construct single wall, gasketed, flexible vent pipes and accessories. InnoFlue® Flex’s dynamic product line provides superior corrosion protection throughout. Lightweight polypropylene eliminates installation fatigue associated with most common venting materials, making it easy. The flexible properties of the Vent Length allow for the rapid lining of chimneys, b-vents, and other chases with offsets up to 45°. InnoFlue® is tested by Intertek and listed to UL-1738 and ULC-S636.  InnoFlue® is clearance to combustibles.

3″ and 4″ diameter Flex Vent Lengths have rigid sections every 2 feet. These rigid male sections can be inserted into any InnoFlue® Single Wall socket and allow for the easy transition between Single Wall and Flex. Once Centrocerin (installation lubricant) has dried the gaskets provide firm junctions between components.

InnoFlue® Flex is used to vent individual appliances. InnoFlue® Flex is commonly combined with InnoFlue® Single Wall but can also be combined with InnoFlue® Concentric. For more information on system configurations, visit the InnoFlue® Flex Solutions page.

  • Multiple flex liners can share a single chase

Continuous Lengths up to 150′

  • Prevents risk of joint failure
  • Eliminates cure time, speeding up installations

Lightweight

  • Product can be hand carried eliminating the need for lifts

3" and 4" have rigid sections Every 2′

  • Rigid sections incorporated in 3″ and 4″ diameters allow Flex to fit into any Single Wall Vent Length or fitting.
  • Limits waste to a maximum of 2′

Storage

Components should be stored in a clean, covered, dry environment in their original packaging. InnoFlue® Flex should be stored above 32°F (0°C).

Health and Safety

For more information on the health and safety benefits of using InnoFlue®, please view our Health and Safety page. Where installation of a InnoFlue® involves working at a height, a full risk assessment must be conducted and appropriate safety measures put into place.

Workmanship

Installation of InnoFlue® does not require any special tools. Centrotherm recommends that the material temperature is not less than 32°F (0°C) during installation.

 

Appliance Start-Up

Once InnoFlue® installation is complete the heating system and flue should be commissioned following the boiler manufacturer’s instructions. There is no cure time or wait time required.
