Fact Sheet - Flue Terminal Locations

The Flue Terminal Location Regulation, as depicted in Figure 6.2, is an essential component of Victorian regulations concerning the installation and positioning of flue terminals in buildings. Flue terminals are critical parts of heating systems, ventilation units, and various appliances that emit exhaust gases. These regulations have been established to ensure the safe and efficient functioning of flue systems while safeguarding public health and the environment.

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.
