BFCMA publishes new commercial flue guide

The British Flue and Chimney Manufacturers Association (BFCMA) has introduced a new Commercial Flue Guide.

 

Designed to provide a clearer understanding of how chimneys and flues should be selected and installed in commercial applications, the BFCMA says the new guide represents an invaluable resource for installers, suppliers, manufacturers and end users.

 

The publication is divided into a number of different sections and covers chimney principles, regulations, types of chimney and flue, chimney and flue design, chimney/flue height and the Clean Air Act, and maintenance.

 

BFCMA vice present Dennis Milligan said: “Selecting the correct chimney or flue for the application is of vital importance and a raft of factors needs to be taken into consideration. The new guide helps to make sense of design features, regulations and other key elements, encouraging best practice across the industry.”

 

The guide focuses its attention on stainless steel flues – the most commonly used material in the chimney and flue market. Stainless steel flues are categorised into different systems and the guide clearly outlines the applications they are designed for.

 

Classed as ‘part of the building’ the chimney and flue must comply with the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) and as such all designers, architects, builders and heating engineers need to understand their individual requirements. The Commercial Flue Guide offers guidance on CE designations and picks out all of the key points from the regulations.

 

Mr Milligan added: “With clearly labelled diagrams and illustrations, the new guide contains a wealth of information and is a must read for anyone involved in the selection and installation of chimneys and flues in a commercial setting.”

Believe the hype over hydrogen heating

The Energy and Utilities Alliance (EUA) has labelled calls for the Government to drop funding for hydrogen as short sighted and ‘without consideration of UK consumers.

Isaac Occhipinti, head of external affairs, EUA said: “Academics, policymakers, think tanks, environmentalists and industry all agree that tackling emissions from heating is ‘difficult’, ‘hard to do’ and that we ‘need to utilise all of the tools available’.”
