EN 15287-1 describes the method of specifying the design, installation and labelling criteria for system chimneys, construction of custom-built chimneys, the relining of existing chimneys and connecting flue pipes for non-room sealed combustion appliances as well as the use of chimney products. It also gives information on the commissioning of an installed chimney.
EN 15287-1 applies to chimneys which are subject to the following limiting conditions:
— the distance between the supports not to exceed 4 m,
— the distance above the last structural attachment not to exceed 3 m,
— the free-standing height above the uppermost structural support attachment for chimneys with rectangular cross-section is not more than five times the smallest external dimension.
The methods in EN 15287-1 are applicable to chimneys and connecting flue pipes for non-room sealed combustion appliances.
