FuranFlex Restores Heritage Hotel Fireplace

The Morritt Arms Hotel’s building dates back to the 17th century. The interior of the Charles Dickens bar features a mural by John Gilroy depicting a scene with Dickensian characters, an homage to the writer, who is believed to have stayed at the Morritt.

The heritage nature of the building meant that a non-invasive solution was needed to fix the large void above the fire opening, which was the cause of repetitive chimney fires. The optimal solution was FuranFlex’s RWV liner, the soft tube was gently pulled into the chimney flue and it was hardened in just one afternoon, with no need to open the chimney and damage the famous mural. The hotel bar opened the same day for evening trade.

The hotel management was so impressed that they asked our installers to complete an additional six installations.

The 7th Annual Partners’ Exec Technical Briefing was attended by representatives from the manufacturer, Kompozitor, the UK distributor, Kompozit’all UK and the executives of the certified FuranFlex25 installation companies from across the UK and Ireland.

Kompozit’all UK was established in 2010 by Kompozitor Ltd, the Hungarian manufacturer of high strength, heat and fireproof composite materials, a new but proven technology for use in all chimney and duct lining. Since the beginning Kompozit’all UK installers have specialised in the restoration of chimney flues and ducts for all types of heating and ventilation applications, with over 7,000 successful installations of FuranFlex25 over the last 7 years.

The range of products, FuranFlex25 for heating and VentilFlex25 for ventilation, provides tailored solutions for each application but requires skilled up-to-date knowledge and training to ensure successful installation. This meeting served as the advance briefing before the annual re-certification for the 107 Kompozit’all UK approved installation engineers.
