    Boxing a boiler flue.


    Hello. I have a boiler flue that runs through the kitchen wall, into the adjacent room and out through the external wall in that room. I intended to use this room as a bedroom for my little girl. Is it possible ie safe to box a flue pipe in in this sort of situation? Thanks!

    "Yes, you can box it in, but current gas safety rules state that you have to have an access panel on every joint."

    "This is how it is to be done, I did a similar job in my apartment, I stretched the aluminum pipe across the ceiling to the living room, then to the balcony. I built everything up. It was necessary to remove kitchen odors."

    "It's safe to do so. And seal the boxing joints with silicone to make it air tight"
