Latest News from VLJ

Most chimney fires are preventable. Regular inspection and cleaning of chimney flues will help prevent fires within chimneys.

We are pleased to be promoting a brand new product in Jersey for the re-lining and renovation of disused chimneys. FuranFlex RWV has been specially developed to cater for solid fuel open fires and has been tested to 1000°C by many European Test Houses and by BSRIA and is certified by BBA in the United Kingdom.  FuranFlex RWV is the only composite chimney lining to have been tested and approved to the relevant British Standards and be listed by HETAS. FuranFlex RWV has been used on many listed properties and thatched properties to bring chimneys safely back into use. The liner is installed into the chimney as a flat flexible hose, inflated with air at only 0.1-0.2Bar reducing any stress on the existing structure. The liner is then “steamed” and this process begins a reaction in the resin and once the resin reaches 1000 celsius it sets as hard as steel.  Once this reaction has taken place the liner is cured and ready to use. FuranFlex RWV chimney linings has been used for many years in 27 european countries and 2,000 metres have been successfully installed in the UK over the last 24 months.  Only factory trained and accredited engineers are […]
