Over the last two or three years the UK has seen a steady rise in the number of chimney related thatched roof fires. We are here to ensure you stay safe in your home as a thatched roof fire can be almost impossible to control and the results can be devastating.
Thatch roof fires can be attributed to many causes including faulty electrical systems, bonfires or fireworks. However Rob Norcott form the Thatching Advisory Services tell us that the main cause of thatch fires stems from chimneys used for wood burners, multi-fuel stoves or open fires, in the form of either heat transfer or ejected embers.
Hot flue gases can transfer heat through the brickwork of the chimney, with thick beds of thatch against the chimney insulating the stack and preventing the release of high temperatures from the brickwork. Over time the thatch can become heated to the point where it will char or burn. This could be daunting for an installer but Part J of the Building regulations offer adequate guidance on how to achieve a safe and compliant installation.
