Prefabricated brick-effect FastStack chimney from Ibstock is designed to reduce the time spent on installation.
The new brick-effect chimneys are an enhancement to Ibstock’s popular and varied FastStack range of prefabricated options. Manufactured using Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) technology, the new chimney is a lightweight option weighing 25kg on average, so it can be installed without the aid of specialist lifting equipment.
It can also be built to match virtually any brick type, blending with existing brickwork, ensuring aesthetics are not compromised.
The single unit, brick-effect FastStack also includes a rain bar system and effective flashing solution in conjunction with a simple lead apron at the front and rear of the chimney. The necessary aprons can be included and bonded in to position on the chimney ready for installation during construction.
Group Marketing Manager at Ibstock, Andrew Halstead-Smith, commented: “The lightweight, brick-effect, FastStack chimney is ideal for those facing time or labour challenges, helping to significantly shorten installation times. Yet, while the FastStack is even easier to install, its combination of glass reinforced polyester, together with brick clad exterior, means aesthetics need not be compromised.”
The range is available in a number of popular FastStack chimney styles including Othello, Hamlet, Hermia, Harcourt and Brandon. All of Ibstock’s brick-effect FastStack chimneys are CGMA approved and are supplied with standard mortar colour.
