Type 316 stainless steel, also known as marine grade stainless, is used in manufacturing the FlueCube chimney cowl because it is highly resistant to corrosion. This type of stainless steel is common in skyscrapers and other large architecture due to its resistance to rust, alongside being suitable for harsh wet weather conditions. The benefits of type 316 stainless steel significantly outweigh other materials, with it made from austenitic chromium and nickel stainless steel, heat resistant and easy to clean, making the FlueCube the best chimney cowl on the market.
The FlueCube stainless steel chimney cowl is self-cleaning, provided that low resin fuels are burned in the stove. However, as chimney experts, we recommend that you have your chimney inspected and swept regularly to keep your wood-burning/multi-fuel stove working at its maximum efficiency.
