Grant EZ-Fit compliant with CE standard for Flues

The Grant EZ-Fit flue system is now compliant with the new CE standard for Flues, having put our EZ-Fit systems through rigorous product testing earlier this year.

From 1 July 2013, under the Construction Products Regulation 2011 (CPR), it will become mandatory for manufacturers to draw up a declaration of performance and apply CE (“Communauté Européenne/European Community) marking to any products which conform to the European Technical Assessment (ETA) issued. It will be illegal to sell any non CE marked products after this date.

Grant have been ahead of the game for some time, taking the initiative to adhere to the CE marking on, not just the flue products, but the whole Grant range. The process for testing is lengthy and complex, taking approximately six months, so is a big investment, both in time and money.

Managing Director, Stephen Grant, commented

“We have a very stringent policy where quality control is concerned and the conformity to legislation is paramount. Our products are manufactured to the highest standard and our adherence to regulations is just part of our daily routine. Customers rely on us to inform them of our continued quality conformance, and this provides them with simple visual validation.”

New flueing options for installers

We have introduced a new range of flues for boilers into our product range to make installation of Grant Boilers quick, simple and to reduce cost while insuring trouble free operation even in the most exposed site conditions.

“Blue Flue” is our new single wall stainless steel flue. It can be used as extensions and elbows on our plume diverter kits. The plume diverter kits come in 1 meter and 2 meter kits in 80mm dia and 100mm dia. The Blue Flue is also compatible with all Grant Condensing Boiler House models when the flue has to pass through a non combustible material i.e. a concrete roof and there is an adequate permanent air supply.

“Red Flue” is our new stainless steel flexible balanced flue solution to nuisance plumbing and cold draughts. It is designed for Grant condensing boilers up to 26kw (90000btu) and allows an existing masonry chimney to be utilised rather than re-site the boilers and pipe work. It comes in lengths of 6,8,10 and 12 meters and extensions and elbows are available.

“Yellow system” – we have introduced a short low level flue kit that goes from 270mm-350mm and will help installations where a shorter flue pipe going out through the wall is required.
