Parkray Consort 4
We fitted this Parkray Consort 4 in a detached property in Whalley, Clitheroe. The job included the decommissioning and removal of an inset gas fire and fireplace surround. The fireplace opening was made considerably larger and three new concrete lintels were installed to take the weight of the precast concrete flue. Due to it being an external chimney, a six inch 904 grade flue liner was installed and then back-filled with vermiculite (this is to insulate the flue and prevent tar forming by the cooling of the combustion products). The fireplace opening was cladded with 25mm vermiculite board and finished by spraying with high temperature stove paint. We also fitted a black granite hearth (supplied by Slate Age of Fence, Burnley). Job location: Whalley, Clitheroe Lancashire, BB7.
