The FlueCube is a stainless steel chimney cowl manufactured to the highest standards. The FlueCube comes in four colours, black, silver, terracotta and Buff it is manufactured in high quality 316 stainless steel that is rust resistant, strong and durable. All FlueCube colour-ways are made from stainless steel – we paint the terracotta to blend in with chimney pots and black to blend in with black twin walls but all colours conform to the same high standards.
Type 316 stainless steel, also known as marine grade stainless, is used in manufacturing the FlueCube chimney cowl because it is highly resistant to corrosion. This type of stainless steel has been used in architecture on the exterior of skyscrapers because of its resistance to rust but is also the stainless steel of choice when it will be exposed to sea water and brine solutions. Type 316 stainless steel is an austenitic chromium and nickel stainless steel, heat resistant and easy to clean. This means that although this type of steel is a little more expensive to use in the manufacture of the FlueCube chimney cowl, it is worth the initial outlay to reap the benefits later on.
