Installing boiler flues just got easier: The PipeSnug team launches ‘FlueSnug’ – a boiler flue sealing collar
The team behind PipeSnug, the innovative product that gives a quicker, smarter finish around pipework, has launched a ‘FlueSnug’ version designed to create a boiler flue seal for all 100mm boiler flues.
Sealing around a boiler flue traditionally requires pointing with sand and cement. Removing any need for pointing, FlueSnug can be installed in less than five seconds and snuggly fits the 152mm core-drilled hole in the wall through which the boiler pipe and flue exits. FlueSnug can be used both inside and outside the property for the best finish and prevents heat escaping and acts as a barrier to drafts, damp, insects and pests.
FlueSnug also allows installers to quickly access the flue for any service or maintenance requirements, without the need to remove existing brickwork, mortar or sealant. The FlueSnug can then simply be reinstalled once complete so no need to make good again afterwards, saving even more time and cost for installers and their customers.
Approved by major boiler manufacturers, FlueSnug looks set to be the quickest, and most cost-effective way to comply with forthcoming changes to Part L of the Building Regulations which mandates the need for pipe collars or grommets onto a pipe where it enters or exits a home, helping to maintain the energy efficiency of the building.
“FlueSnug is already getting fantastic feedback from the trade and is suitable for any building where a boiler flue has to be installed, from new builds to local authority properties to commercial buildings,” explains Alex Lever, Director. “We know from the feedback we have had that heating engineers clearly see the time and cost-saving benefits of the product – as well as the benefits of compliance with the proposed changes to Part L of the Building Regulations.”
With the COVID-19 and the disruption it has caused, PipeSnug is asking installers to go directly to its website for product information and further details on how to order and will be available in merchants in the coming weeks.
