Multi-flue installation: Knightsbridge, London SW7 < Back

Kensington and Chelsea chimney lining

As part of the refurbishment of the premises, it was required that open gas fires were installed.

The flues were breached, unsafe, and required re-lining. In order to solve the problem flues, and to achieve an adequate cross sectional area of flue, Furanflex BLACK was chosen for the basement and ground floor fireplaces. This enabled the flues to be lined in a single piece, with a 25 year insurance backed guarantee being given.

Thermocrete B2 refractory castable was chosen for the solid fuel stove on the first floor, as this afforded structural improvements, effectively rebuilding the flue from the inside out, again carrying a 25 year manufacturer’s warranty.

All 3 flues were completed within 3 days and the relevant HETAS certificate was issued upon payment of the final invoice.
