    Does anyone know if current Intergas flues (for X series) are suitable for outside? I would need it run for about 2 meters on top of flat roof...

    You can't run Intergas flues externally. I have had this battle with them several times recently. TBF the flue manufacturer stipulate this to them rather than the other way around, but unlike in the good old days, they're rather rigid now with what "engineering solutions" an installer can come up with.

    That's not to say that there aren't ways to do things. But it usually costs some bucks.

    That's a shame, but yes I'm aware things could be done a a cost to resolve this, but I was hoping to avoid that...

    Sorry to bring this up again - are there any warranty implications if a third party flue is fitter to intergas?

    Also I'm thinking out loud - does it have to run along the roof to the outside perimeter of the house or can it just finish on the flat roof if nothing is directly above it (although there is a wall on the side)?

    You can't use a third party flue.

    So what would be the solution then? Building up a cover on top of Intregas flue?

    Use the vertical terminal.

    I have probably wrongly assumed there was a reason for not using a vertical terminal in the previous installation. Currently it raises the flue about a meter over the roof and then another meter to the right. It can't be due to cost (I'm sure simple vertical terminal would have been cheaper than two meters of flue plus 90 degree elbow).

    I thought its something to do with regs...

    I have no idea what you're going on about.

    Upstairs neighbours window (or your bedroom window) just above where the terminal would sensibly have gone?

    I'll make a picture during daylight, so that its more concrete discussion. There are no windows on the closest wall, there is a tiny toilet window on another wall about 1m away from the vertical section of the flue...

    Here is what I'm talking about. Not sure if vertical terminal could be used here...

    So back to the options then - can intergas flue be fitted somehow?
