So who are we? We’re a Stockport based manufacturing company called Flue & Ducting Ltd, with trade depots in Stockport, Normanton and Wellington supplying the general trade UK wide with all products relating to chimneys. We manufacture the number 1 chimney liner in the UK, DURA FLUE. Dura Flue is the only chimney liner in the UK to be manufactured in our special way that gives it it’s unbelievable strength, flexibility and longevity. We also stock a huge range of chimney products that are available UK wide on a next day delivery.

– Premium Chimney Liner –

Dura Flue is manufactured from two separate pre-formed patented strips of stainless steel. Due to this unique process the steel doesn’t come under any stresses during manufacturing as it does during more traditional methods of manufacturing chimney liner where the steel is formed, then folded and finally crimpled to lock it together. The two separate strips of steel are designed to simply lock into each other when run through the highly specialised patented machinery with ease creating an incredibly strong flexible liner that won’t unravel in the same way a traditional chimney liner can. It also means there is no stress put on the steel during this process as there is when steel is folded to create the inner and outer layers of a traditional chimney liner.

Competitors have since extended their warranties but not improved the product so watch out for chimney liners that have long warranties but are not Dura Flue, they have simply extended the warranty to match Dura Flue!

CHEAP CHIMNEY LINER DE-LAMINATES DURING INSTALLATION (and you will never know as it is hidden)
This is what flue liner looks like when it has been dragged around one bend in a chimney (most chimneys have at least one bend).

The layers are separating and peeling back. Every part of the liner will pass through a bend in the attic (bends usually in attic or just above fireplace) so this damage will be prevalent along the complete length of your liner. At worst the layers come apart and the liner fails.

WITH DURAFLUE CHIMNEY LINER THE LAYERS NEVER SEPARATE AND THE FLUE REMAINS SMOOTH.

Cheap flue liner can also separate during fitting leaving a length of liner stuck in your flue – TO REMOVE IT YOU WILL HAVE TO BREAK THROUGH INTO THE AREA CONCERNED.

As well as this a smooth flue takes the gases away much more effectively than a flue with “damage ledges” along its length (a good draw on your stove is what you want, very important and anything that hinders this is not good).

CHEAP LINER IS EASILY EATEN AWAY BY THE “NASTIES” PRESENT WITHIN SMOKE

Cheap chimney liner will often fail within your chimney (acids and tar eat away at it) with smoke being released into the cavity between your liner and your chimney wall (from here it will strive to find an exit into your property).

CHEAP LINER MANUFACTURERS: SOME OF THEM HAVE IMPRESSIVE WEBSITES

It really is not difficult or expensive to set up an ecommerce website nowadays

CHEAP LINER IS ALSO HETAS-CERTIFIED

Hetas do not compare the quality of liners.

 

CHEAP LINER MANUFACTURERS AND RETAILERS OFFER AMAZING TOO-GOOD-TO-BE-TRUE GUARANTEES

All liner manufacturers offer an “X-YEAR” GUARANTEE (OR EVEN A LIFETIME GUARANTEE). But read the small print as many will likely have you send them a sample of liner and they will test it and state that you have burned unsuitable fuels (e.g. wood with paint on) and try proving you have not! Even if they do replace your liner (most folks will not want get this far because they do not relish the confrontation) liner producers will NOT pay for all the re-installation costs (time, money, scaffolding, disruption etc.).

DO IT ONCE AND DO IT GOOD.

Do you really want to spend all of this time and energy fitting a wonderful wood burning stove and have liner that is falling apart in your chimney?

BUT THEY THROW IN SO MANY EXTRAS AND IT ALL COMES TO ONE GREAT PRICE!

That’s because it’s often inferior product. You get what you pay for.

As the steel has not come under any stress or forces during manufacturing the possibility of corrosion is minimised, as there are no weak spots for corrosion to set in.

Dura Flue is also tested well above the standards required for a liner in Britain and as such we offer a 15 year warranty on our 316 grade liner and a 30 year warranty on our 904 grade liner.
