The main property is a manor house in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Cotswolds. A biomass boiler flue was required.
The home owner wanted to install a biomass heating system but did not want to have to position a tall stainless steel flue near the property. It was therefore agree with the biomass boiler supplier to install the boiler into an existing building, utilising and existing flue.
When the flue was inspected it was found that the required 200mm dia stainless steel liner could not fit within it.
Turner Baker Ltd were asked to survey the site with a view to finding a flue solution suitable for the boiler, but not involving external stainless steel flues. The survey showed that the existing flue, in its unlined condition, was sufficient for the boiler, but was unsafe to use as it leaked.
Therefore it was proposed to install a FuranFlex RWV liner within the existing chimney stack, that would be sized to expand to the profile of the existing flue.
Turner Baker Ltd formed an access point into the flue and lined the flue using FuranFlex RWV. The following day the lined flue was then connected to the boiler, and the boiler commissioned.
