I've replaced a gas fireplace/double wall vent with Class A (Dura Plus) chimney for freestanding wood stove. Although my interior chase measures 3'X5', to center the Class A through the hole at the top (Metal cap on stone chase) meant that the vertical stove pipe will have only 8" clearance from the back wall in the alcove I've created. The stove itself will sit just outside the "Alcove" & vents from the back so I'll only have one 90* elbow then straight up the class A. Clearances are all great with the exception of the stove pipe. While I'm familiar with double wall stove pipe, I'd prefer to go with single thereby salvaging considerable heat from the 68" vertical run. What would you folks recomend as a heat shield on the wall to reduce my clearance to the 8" I have? Thanks very much for your help.
