One of the stoves supplied and installed by Hancock Stoves and Flues
One of the tiles incorporated an adaptor so that it could be connected directly to the flue
pipe which ran from the ground floor to the loft space.
are listed Category IV double-wall special gas vents intended for use with high-efficiency condensing boilers, factory-built by a reputable manufacturer.
If they are not working properly or if the flue
is blocked, this can cause a potentially lethal situation.
The coroner said: "It seems to me a very important lesson can be learned from this death that may be of assistance to other people who have chimneys and flues
I hope all this information can help readers understand why it is important not to share flues
both for the health of their chimneys, but also for their own health.--Paul F.
Blyth crew manager Hugh Lacey was in charge of a crew which dealt with a blaze in a chimney flue
in a house in Princes Gardens.
The integrity of warm air flues
, which vent through roof ridge terminals, was discovered to have been disrupted in 11 of the properties, potentially causing a build-up of lethal carbon monoxide in the loft space.
The researchers are now working with engineers to scale up the technology and study its effectiveness in flues
. They envision a power plant column housing tons of the framework.
Most have cracked and deteriorated, opening gaps around the flues
. If you feel safe and confident about walking on your roof, climb up and inspect the crown.
The trade categorises chimneys and flues
into class 1 and class 2.
Mr Gammon added, ``Any problems with blocked vents and flues
would be picked up as part of the servicing of a gas appliance, which should only ever be done by a Corgi-registered employer.
