In line with existing Building Regulations and standards relating to fire safety, Keston is pleased to announce the arrival of its new stainless-steel High-Rise Flue Kit, which provides a simple and compliant solution for high-rise buildings.
Suitable for all buildings in England and Wales higher than 18 meters, the new high-rise flue kit from Keston is fully compliant with the latest Building Regulations (The Building Regulations 2020, Part B – Fire Safety, Volume 1) which require that, amongst other conditions, materials which become part of the external wall in relevant buildings do not contribute to external fire spread. The new kit is also suitable for installations in Scotland above 11 meters, in accordance with the Building Standards Technical Handbook 2020: Domestic Buildings.
Made from high-quality 316 stainless steel, the new High-Rise Flue Kit from Keston offers a corrosion resistant alternative to other non-combustible or fire-resistant materials such as aluminium.
Compatible with the Keston Combi 2 and System 2 boiler ranges, which offer a versatile solution for new and replacement heating systems, the new flue kits enable straightforward connection to Keston approved MuPVC/PVC-C flue systems within buildings. Containing an air outlet and flue terminal, each kit also contains fittings and thread sealant to provide heating engineers with a simple and versatile solution.
In addition to providing a compliant and flexible solution, the new kits enable Keston to continue to provide its customers with a selection of high-quality heating solutions which are suitable for a wide range of environments.
