HomeSaver RectangleFlex 304/316-Alloy Stainless
Here's another HomeSaver industry innovation - RectangleFlex. Before RectangleFlex, the whole family of 8" X 12" flues into which 8" stoves were vented could not be relined without downsizing - because you obviously can't get 8" round relining pipe down an 8" X 12" flue. And downsizing goes against NFPA 211 code. Then RectangleFlex came to the rescue.
With RectangleFlex, you have a heavy, yet very flexible pipe of 5 /34" x 9 1/2" inside dimensions - 54 1/2 square inches in total area. Since an 8" round pipe only has a 50 1/4" total area, you can see that RectangleFlex gives no loss in stack volume when attached to an 8" stove. (For outside dimensions add 1/4")
RectangleFlex is made from 4-ply interlocked certified stainless steel, each .018" thick. 304-alloy RectangleFlex comes with HomeSaver's lifetime warranty for wood burning applications. 316-alloy comes with a lifetime warranty for wood, coal, oil and non-condensing gas applications. See warranty information on HomeSaver - HOMESAVER WARRANTIES PDF FILES.
RectangleFlex is UL Listed to the 1777 Standard for zero clearance when installed according to the manufacturer's instructions. Also listed to ULC S635-00.
Ordering RectangleFlex is easy because there is just one size. The inside dimensions are 5 3/4" x 9 1/2". Outside dimensions are 6" x 9 3/4".
RectangleFlex is sold in 5' lengths, 25' coils, and 10' through 50' custom lengths. Contact us for more information on shipping. See custom order RectangleFlex by the foot at bottom of this page.

If you ever need to join two sections of RectangleFlex. This is the adaptor that will do the job.
RectangleFlex is flexible, yet very thick and heavy like other HomeSaver flexible liners. As a result, in order to join two sections you need this special adaptor to create the necessary "male-end-down" connection. This R-R adaptor does that, and with new engineering, it fits even better.
Most of the time when you reline a flue with RectangleFlex, it will be a straight shot all the way down through the smoke chamber and straight into a RectangleFlex tee.
The R-S Adaptor allows you to come down the flue with RectangleFlex and then mate into 8" RoundFlex for the smoke chamber run. It will mate RectangleFlex to 8" rigid round stainless pipe as well or basically any round pipe on bottom.
In many cases you'll come down the flue with RectangleFlex and need to use large OvalFlex to get through the damper.
This adaptor is what you'll need to mate the RetangleFlex (which has come down the flue) to the large OvalFlex (which you'll then run through the damper area).
Use this S-R Adaptor when you've relined a flue with 8" rigid stainless and need to attach it to HomeSaver RectangleFlex for your damper smoke chamber run.
Use it to join 8" RoundFlex or Pro to RectangleFlex for you damper/smoke chamber run. In this case, you'll need to add an 8" connector-adaptor to mate the RoundFlex to this Adaptor.
Use it to join 8" Heat-Fab on top to RectangleFlex on bottom.
When you install RectangleFlex this 18-ga. top clamp will be used as part of your top-mounting hardware assembly. The special storm collar, when used with a rain cop will give your installation the protection it needs from rain. Both items are installed in the same way as described on previous pages for RoundFlex and OvalFlex.
Note: Top/Bottom Support Brackets can be used instead of the top clamp pictured here. Pictured above, click here to view.
Run RectangleFlex directly into this tee anytime it's called for in your installation. Notice the slanted sides - this tee has been redesigned and re-engineered to fit RectangleFlex even better.
There are two pieces to the 8" round removable take-off: a "ring" that fits through the take-off hole from the inside, and the take-off, which fastens to the ring on each side by two radiator-hose type clamps.
Tee Cover is sold separately.
RectangleFlex 304-alloy top plates are available with outer dimensions of 9" x 13", 13" x 18", or 18" x 18". The hole has a nice raised lip and is sized just right to fit RectangleFlex. Other features include rounded corners.

These boots fit over the exhaust vents of most inserts.
Install by drilling and bolting, or taping and screwing, into your insert top. Then seal with Furnace Cement, Flue Goo, or Flat Fiberglass Stove Gasket. Click on item name to view more information. Secure the Flex into the boot with the removable rod or screws.
This photo shows a RectangleFlex rain cap and all the top-mounting hardware pieces featured on this page assembled on a section of RectangleFlex. It is shown here as you would assemble in a typical installation.
Use this 20-ga. milled steel end-cone during RectangleFlex installations. Your helper can pull RectangleFlex down past bends much more easily with this end-cone in place. Or attach the end-cone to the winch cable and pull the RectangleFlex up the flue using our Super Winch. When using a winch, always use care that the flex is moving smoothly.
Here's a brush made to fit RectangleFlex perfectly. It is a special version of the standard Rutland Master Sweep Brushes with 3/8" pipe threads. 5 3/4" x 9 1/2"
