What makes the FuranFlex® procedure revolutionary?
Advanced Chimney Solutions are an approved installer of the FuranFlex® Chimney Lining System in Belfast, Derry & Northern Ireland. FuranFlex® is the only non-destructive procedure with which chimneys of any shape, size or length can be lined with a corrosion-proof, flame and heat resistant, airtight liner tube made of a composite material with the solidity of steel, without any joints
What does composite mean?Composite is the technical name for high-strength glass fibre reinforced resins. Their structure is similar to that of reinforced concrete. The difference is that the composite material consists of resin instead of concrete made of cement, sand and gravel, and of glass fibres thinner than hair instead of steel rods. (Reinforced plastics, Versterkte Kunststoffe, Plastique renforcée)
Why do chimneys need to be lined? Chimneys need to be lined because when fuels are burned acidic is generated, which precipitates inside the chimney. This damages the plasterwork, concrete and often even stainless steel. Through the gaps created in this way carbon monoxide may escape into the rooms, which may be fatal. In Europe hundreds of people die every year because of faults occurring in chimneys. In most countries it is compulsory to line chimneys.
