    On page 5 of the 30NC manual it states the clearances to combustibles as below:


    Side and Rear shields, single wall chimney connector: = 19-in

    Side and Rear shields, double wall connector: = 20-in

    My question is, why would a set up with DOUBLE wall require more side clearance that a setup with SINGLE wall?


    The stove body is the same either way, right??

    --------------------

    Also, I do not see listed any side clearances for a stove that has NO side heat shields. Mine has a rear shield only.
    Since the side shields are an OPTION, why wouldn't the manual notate the info for a standard unit that has no side shields?

    I would imagine the clearance should increase, (with no side shields) but by how much?


    Thanks!! :)

    Yes, I've asked for a clarification of this section in the past. The rear-shield only case does not seem to be covered in the table. Mike told us that the clearances are as tested. The stove may have run a bit hotter with the double-wall pipe connected. Call Englander support or PM Mike to see if they have tested clearances for the rear shield only.

    OK, thanks.

    Really, I don't see how they would ever sell any side shields if there seems to be NO gain in distance to combustibles.
    :confused: (per the manual's chart)

    Side shields + rear shield greatly reduces the rear clearance.

    I have 19" flue pipe to rear wall, Double wall flue. I have about 36" to a side I/2 wall ( book case than is now a wood storage rack) other side is wide open. side heat shields would reduce the 30" a bit ( think they about a $250 add on)
