    Well, when you refer to it as a "chase" are you talking about combustible construction or a passageway inside a masonry chimney similar to an unused flue?

    the chase will be 32" by 49" by 15 feet timber construction. fire rocked if needed.

    Well then it must be vent and not liner. Liner is for existing masonry chimneys only. Does not need any special type X sheetrock according to IRC. Commercial applications are more stringent and would require fire rated assemblies making it a "shaft".

    I kind of thought I wouldn't be able to use it and told him so. but I couldn't tell him why. it I didn't do the research it would have haunted to for life. it sucks for them, the liner probably wasn't cheap and neither is the l vent. thanks for the help.
    btw, I was expecting you to give me the info I was looking for, I am highly impressed with the knowledge you display here.
