TELFORD: From January 1 2013, new gas safety industry regulations state that GAS Safe engineers must turn off any domestic boiler if the flue is not accessible for inspection and maintenance.

Pendock, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of preformed pipe boxing and boiler casing solutions, has addressed the issue with the launch of its Boiler Flue Inspection Kit.

The kits smartly conceal the boiler flue whilst also providing easy inspection and access, potentially avoiding the inconvenience and potential consequences of customers having their boilers shut down.

Notably, the kits take just half an hour to install using basic hand tools - around 65% quicker than typical site made alternatives.

They are pre-formed so there is no need to cut ply or MDF on site and the white melamine finish requires no onsite decoration - vastly reducing time and labour costs.
