System details and design guidance

The Dunbrik A1 Concrete Flue Liner Systems are used in the construction of domestic chimneys suitable for all types of domestic fires. A chimney is a structure made with a minimum of 100mm thick masonry lined with purpose made flue liners. Householders can burn all domestic fuels including coal and properly seasoned wood or install any gas appliance including flame effect fires.

Flue Liners

Dunbrik concrete liners are made with tongue and socket joints. They are manufactured from kiln burnt aggregate and Portland cement and are designed to withstand repeated temperature fluctuations.

Flue liners should be joined with Dunseal fire proof mortar paste. Allow approximately 3 joints per cartridge for 200mm liners, 2 joints for 250mm & 300mm liners and 1 joint for 450mm liners. Any void between flue liners and masonry surround should be filled with Dunfil insulating infill.

Liner Standards

British Standard BS EN 1857 established performance standards for concrete flue liners for domestic chimneys.

Dunbrik liners have been tested by BSRIA and achieved the highest categories in each class as follows:

Dunbrik Type A1 – T600 N1 G D 3

Performance Data

  • T600 – Temperature nominal operating temperature 600°C
  • N1 – Gas tightness negative pressure test at 40 Pascal
  • G – Sootfire resistance heat shock tested to 1,000°C for 30 minutes
  • D – Condensate resistance for dry flue conditions
  • 3 – Corrosion resistance for all domestic fuels (scrub test for durability)


UK Building Regulations ADJ

Dunbrik A1 Concrete Flue Liners meet the minimum standards set in approved document J (ADJ) and exceed the requirements for temperature and gas tightness.
