Fact Sheet - Flue Terminal Locations

The installation and positioning of flue terminals are governed by regulations outlined in AS/NZS5601.1:2013, specifically Figure 6.2. These regulations establish minimum clearances for flue terminals, which are essential to ensure the safe and efficient operation of heating systems, ventilation units, and other appliances that emit exhaust gases.

The correct placement of flue terminals is of utmost importance to prevent potential hazards such as the release of harmful gases into occupied spaces, the risk of fire, and interference with neighbouring properties. Adhering to the prescribed guidelines in Figure 6.2 is crucial to maintaining indoor air quality and minimising the potential for accidents or health issues caused by improper flue terminal location.
