This installation was carried out over two days in November 2010.
With this case study I was a little late in getting the camara out so it only shows a little of what was before, but is a great example of what can be done with a very ordinary space.
These couple of photos show the fire place after we had removed existing wooden surround and have now fitted the new lintle.
Extensive work was also done to the chimney which was in really bad condition and had to be rebuilt somewhat to accomodate a new chimney pot.
In the picture below you can see the finished product. Isn’t my brick work fantastic?
Well actually not. This is a great example of what you can do with the latest fire board. In this instance the brick effect.
Really looks genuine and can be done slightly cheaper than the real thing. Also as the boards are only 15mm thick it won’t take away too much of the inner space left for the stove.
Once the brick effect fire boards were fitted we dropped a 316 grade flexible flue liner down the chimney fitted a new register plate. We then connected up the vitreous enamelled flue pipe to the liner and subsequently to the stove. All joins are sealed with fire cement and around the register plate with 300 degree heat resistant silicone.
To comply with HETAS and Building reulations a CO2 alarm and data plate also fitted.
