Home / Chimney / Single Wall Interior Stove Pipe / Simpson Dura Vent Dura Black

Simpson Dura Vent Dura Black

With a spot welded seam, this is a faster pipe to install than the snap lock. Also, due to the spot welded seam, this pipe will hold up under rapid heat expansion better than snap lock, unless the snapped seam is properly screwed together. For the average home owner / installer this pipe may be safer in chimney fire situations.

Dura Black is a sweet steel pipe and the average life expectancy of this kind of pipe is quite variable and depends on the way the stove is operated. With an EPA certified stove that is operated in a mid to high burn range, you may get as much as ten years before the pipe needs to be replaced. Yearly inspections are a necessity for safe use of this type of pipe.
