Heritage Open Fire Chimney Repair – Furanflex Case Studies

Job type: Solid Fuel Open Fire Chimney
Length: 10.5M
Diameter: 225mm / 275mm
Project Length: 1 day
Completed by: Specialist Chimney Services

Initial Situation:
The Morritt Arms Hotel’s existing chimney had a large void above the fire opening which was unable to be cleaned. This was allowing repetitive chimney fires. The fire brigade instructed that the chimney must be lined before the fire was used.

Project Challenge:
The use of a steel liner was rejected due to impractical installation, the use of cast in situ was also rejected as we were unable to open the chimney due to the hand painted murals to the bar area and decoration to the hotel rooms above. The fireplace in the Charles Dickens bar is a Georgian hob grate type. The property dates back to 1635. Length 10.5 metres, one 30 degree offset above fire opening. Large void to base of chimney and remaining chimney 225mm to 275, square.

Liner Chosen:
FuranFLEX25 RWV Red

FuranFlex chimney liner was the most suitable system maintaining the required cross-sectional area of 225mm and no requirement for opening up the chimney above the fireplace. The bar area was closed during the day by 3.30pm the installation was complete. The bar opened for evening trade. Specialist Chimney Services were asked to price for works to an additional six chimney/fireplace installations within the property.
