New Details

This month the team at Detail Library are excited to be able to share their latest set of details with you! This technical set of details explores masonry chimney details and flue liner systems for both a masonry and timber frame setting. There are many requirements when it comes to detailing flues and chimneys, and we always recommend consulting the Building Regulations Document Part J and all relevant guidance documents and standards.

  • Masonry chimney and flue, timber frame, high level section detail
  • Masonry chimney and flue, timber frame, intermediate floor section detail
  • Masonry chimney and flue, timber frame, low level section detail
  • Masonry chimney and flue, timber frame, front elevation detail
