    We need to know what you have for clearance to combustibles before we can answer your question.

    Snap and put three screws in each section and you'll be good need 18" clearance around any single wall.

    If you use the snap-together stuff, it is. That's generally the thinnest (26 ga) stuff available...If you use 22 ga. Single-Wall, it's better & will last you longer. Either way. SW has 18 inch clearance to combustibles

    I just bought some snap together pipe (had no choice on short notice) and it was 24 gauge, I like the welded seam pipe much better.

    I have some 30 year old welded seam 24 gauge stove pipe and am still using it in the shop, if you burn dry wood with good flue temps stove pipe will lasts a long time.

    Yep, you can get 22 G welded seam stovepipe. I got HeatFab, I believe.
