The chimney should remain as straight as possible and be high enough to ensure sufficient drought to clear the products of combustion. The height necessary for this will depend upon the type of the appliance, the height of the building, and the number of offsets within the system. However, a minimum flue height of 4.5m should be achieved as recommended in the Building Regulations.Find out more
The vitreous enamel and Prima Plus 1mm are used as connecting flue pipes from the appliance to the chimney and must only be used in the room where the appliance is installed. The maximum length for the vitreous enamel is 1.8m as recommended by the manufacturer. The Prima Plus 1mm may also be used to reline existing masonry chimneys and is approved for this use by HETAS.Find out more
Pumice is a natural insulator, which separates it from all other chimney materials. The insulating properties of Pumice allow the flue gases in the chimney to quickly reach their optimum temperature and the heating appliance to reach its optimum performance shortly after lighting. Pumice also helps to keep the chimney warmer for longer as the heat output of the appliance decreases.Find out more
