draft pipe gas fireplaces
Explanation:
There is no translation available for "Ziehrohr" but I feel that they do mean a draft pipe, which would fit a stove or fireplace.

"Abzugsrohr", which is a probable synonym, could also be a venting pipe. But since all stoves or firplaces have chimneys, that can be excluded.

Although this is not a fireplace, the "draft pipe" sounds good for the purpose. Thanks!

gas fireplace chimney/venthole


Explanation:
I'm assuming that "Ziehrohr" is a southern-German word vor "Abzugsrohr" and the translation for that is "chimney", "venthole" or "drainpipe". I tend towards the traditional chimney, although venthole is good, as it "vents" rather than "drains" smoke from the gas fireplace. However, the chimney describes the entire pipe from top to bottom, whereas venthole seems to be the place at the gas fire itself, so maybe that's more appropriate.
