Augmented reality chimney builder for stoves

Published: 15 January 2021 - Neil Mead

See how a stove will look in your home and calculate the chimney components required.


Have you ever wondered what a modern, log burning stove would look like in your house, especially as you don’t already have a natural chimney breast for a fireplace? A new App from Schiedel allows the user to see what it looks like, as well as calculating the components required. Stoves can easily be installed into existing homes, be it a newly built house on an estate or an existing, older house or even a self-build project. A stove can be installed going through the ceilings of each room and out of the roof, or along the outside and up the building.

The App gives you a choice of four basic stove designs, to give an impression of what a typical design would look like in your home. This amazing App then be used to assist the installer in selecting the parts required following a full site survey, which can then be ordered directly from their chosen distributor of the Schiedel product range.

Please note that as conditions on site may vary, the final price for the system may change following the full site survey and may vary between distributors.

Please note that the installer may advise on additional components or advise which components are not needed (for example extra wall bands based on exact measurements and site surveys). The quote provided is Schiedel’s list pricing and these prices are different with their distributors.

The app is available as a Google Play app and can be downloaded from the store.

The recommended specs is for a device running Android 7.0 and up – supported devices

The app is also available for Apple devices running iOS from the Apple App Store.

The minimum specs for an Apple device are iOS 11 and up (device list – note that this doesn’t list the new iPhone 12s but they will also be supported)
