Freedom Flex Venting was the first thing that came to mind, when talking about great solutions for installing a vented gas fireplace. Flex Vent is a great alternative to the standard rigid style venting, but it turns out a lot of people don’t know what Flex Vent is. Learn what flex vent is, and how it can benefit your next fireplace install.

Adaptable and Simple

Flex Vent is easy to install, and there are fewer pieces and connections needed when put together. It allows an installer to work around obstacles without multiple parts and crazy joints or connectors. Unlike rigid venting, Napoleon’s Freedom Flex Vent will flow around walls or other obstacles, completing an install without a hassle. This takes half the time, and leads to reduced labor costs as well. Using Flex Vent, a fireplace will be less likely to spring a leak in the venting during future use.

For added convenience, these vents are lightweight and are available in lengths from 5 to 10 feet, and can be compressed for compact storage and transport, not to mention easy handling.
