Fluepipe definition

According to Approved document J, Combustion appliances and fuel storage systems:

A flue is a passage that conveys the products of combustion from a combustion appliance to the outside air.

A fluepipe is a pipe, either single walled (bare or insulated) or double walled, which connects a combustion appliance to a flue in a chimney. When used in this way, it may be called a connecting fluepipe.

The term ‘fluepipe’ is also used to describe the tubular components from which some factory made chimneys for gas and oil appliances are made or from which plastic flue systems are made.
