Stainless Steel Chimney System Suppliers and Installers

Scarlett Fireplaces are suppliers and HETAS registered fitters of stainless steel chimney's in Essex and London. Stainless steel chimney systems are a popular choice for adding a working chimney into a new or existing property to serve a wood burning stove. The method of chimney installation allows less disturbance than building a brick chimney and can aid in creating minimal fireplace designs.

Stainless steel chimney systems are constructed from an internal stainless-steel pipe that is surrounded by a second larger stainless-steel pipe. The void between the pipes is filled with an insulating material to keep the high temperatures inside the internal pipe. Chimney systems are tested to ensure that even in the most extreme heat conditions, the outer skin is cool enough not to transfer heat to surrounding combustible materials such as wooden joists. Stainless steel chimney's can be installed either running through the property ceilings, floors and roof or they can run through the external wall at 45 degrees and then up the outside of the property to above the roof level. The chimney comes standard in a shiny stainless steel finish or can be powder coated any colour to suit.

Versatile Stainless Steel Chimney's

As with many products in our industry there are large variations in quality between stainless steel chimney manufacturers. All chimneys may pass basic tests on the day of testing, otherwise they cannot be sold in this country however, how long some will hold their integrity is anyone's guess. Some inferior products have badly designed components that make it almost impossible in tight working conditions to guarantee the correct or intended method of installation.

All stainless-steel chimney systems need a certain air gap from combustible materials as it passes through the property. The air gap necessary varies between manufacturers. Our chimney systems require only a 50mm gap. In some situations, the unsightly stainless-steel chimney can be disguised as a traditional brick chimney with the use of a brick slip casing.
