ECO Flue Systems

Prevent heat loss and reduce fuel consumption

Metro have dedicated years of development and testing to deliver the best performance and efficiency from a flue system. A Metro ECO Flue System will retain the warmth from your Metro wood fire in your home, and reduce fuel consumption at the same time.

Metro ECO Base Flue System

The Metro ECO Base Flue system is a double-liner system consisting of a 150mm flue pipe, 200mm inner liner, 250mm outer liner and Metro ECO Cowl.

The easily-recognisable rocket shaped cowling operates on a vertical discharge principle, and induces updraft to the flue gases increasing draw within the flue pipe. The unique design and performance of the Metro ECO Cowl and ECO Base Flue system is what sets it apart from a standard design flue system.

The Metro ECO Base Flue system is ventilated from either your home's ceiling cavity or from outside the home, not from the room being heated by your wood fire. This ensures all the heat provided by your wood fire stays within your home instead of disappearing up the flue system to ventilate it.

The energy savings achieved by the ECO Base Flue System are impressive. Lab testing of a standard flue system resulted in the heated air provided by the wood fire being drawn out of the home at an astounding rate of 450 litres per minute. Now that's a lot of hot air to lose!

 

Metro ECO Option Kit

The ECO Option Kit is designed for installation in combination with the Metro ECO Base Flue System.

The ECO Option kit enables homes without a vented ceiling cavity or homes featuring a sloping ceiling, to still achieve the same performance and efficiency benefits the Metro ECO Base Flue System provides. Instead of the ventilation for the flue system being drawn from within the ceiling cavity, it is drawn from outside the home.

Standard Flue Systems

Standard flue systems draw their cooling air from the room that is being heated by the wood fire. On a cold winter's night these hugely inefficient flue systems can empty an average sized room of potentially 28oC air, once every hour. It replaces this air heated by the wood fire with the outside air which in some regions can be below zero.

Suitable for freestanding wood fires being installed into a home with a vented ceiling cavity (attic space). Ventilation for the flue system is drawn from within the homes ceiling cavity. Galvanised and Stainless steel outer liner options available.

An additional kit installed with the ECO Base Flue System for homes without a vented ceiling cavity or homes featuring a sloping ceiling. Ventilation for the flue system is drawn from outside the home. Galvanised and Stainless steel outer liner options available.

Suitable for extending all Metro Flue Systems within the roof space and outside the home. Includes 1200mm lengths of 150mm unpainted fluepipe, 200mm inner liner and 250mm outer liner. Galvanised and Stainless steel outer liner options available.

Suitable for all Metro Insert fires being installed into a masonry chimney.

This flue system must be installed with all Metro Built-In fires and also Metro Insert fires with a Vented Zero Clearance Cabinet (VZCC) being installed into a timber framed cavity/false chimney.

Designed for wood fire 'swap-overs' when use of the homes existing 200mm and 250mm liners is permitted. Includes 1200mm lengths of 150mm fluepipe (x3) and a Metro ECO Cowl.
