Inspections Surveys

As well as our design and installation service, we also provide essential assistance to clients, consultants and contractors in assessing existing installations and their suitability for ongoing use. 

We regularly carry out CCTV camera surveys of existing flues and chimneys. We find this is an invaluable aid when looking to either re-use an existing flue system, or install a new liner in an existing chimney stack. Using our HD survey kit we are able to produce a video showing the internal condition of a flue or chimney, highlighting any obstructions or other areas of concern, ultimately assessing whether the required liner can be installed given the constraints. This service is best carried out during the initial design stage and once the appliances have been selected we can design the flue system definitively. This is generally carried out prior to the general tender process, and therefore we are usually employed either directly by the client, or their consultant. Naturally, if there are issues preventing the original concept and installation then alternative solutions are explored. This ensures that once the project goes to tender, our element of the work is both feasible and designed, avoiding any last minute issues which otherwise would have been problematic.


We are also able to provide pressure testing of flues and exhausts in accordance with DW143. This is another useful tool when looking to retain existing systems for new plant. Our new installations are guaranteed to function as specified. This is especially important on high pressure CHP and generator exhausts, where any weakness in the exhaust system will soon result in very dangerous leaking of gases.

In addition to chimney surveys and pressure testing we are able to offer structural analysis of existing steel chimneys or masts, together with their foundations. This is often in conjunction with steeplejack high level inspections, allowing full and reliable assessment regarding removal and renewal, or for insurance assessments on existing structures.
