Pusey House, Oxfordshire. SN7 8QB (Heritage chimney lining)
Pusey House is a grade 2* listed building and dates from the mid eighteenth century.
Greystone Chimneys were asked to look at refurbishing the flues serving a number of fireplaces, which had deteriorated, and were no longer safe to use.
As the fireplace openings were very large, maintaining maximum possible flue area was of critical importance to achieving proper flue function.
Furanflex was selected as the best material, as it supports the existing structure of the building, insulates the flue and achieves the best possible flue size.
4 flues were camera surveyed to establish the viability of installation, which confirmed that 325mm diameter flues were going to be possible to install in 300mm x 300mm dimension flues, due to Furanflex’s unique ability to mould itself to the shape of the flue.
The flues were installed with minimum disruption to the building over 2 days and HETAS certificates were issued on completion of works.
