ChimFireStop – a Firefighter’s story

An Introduction to Safer and More Efficient Chimney Fire Call Outs!

With the fact that wood burning stoves and open fires are ‘in vogue’ chimney fires are on the rise. This ties up valuable resources that could be better used elsewhere. On average an appliance is in attendance and unavailable for other calls for over an hour when dealing with chimney fires. Then there’s the potential for the incident to escalate and an ALP being required to gain access to the chimney should it require capping! Plus, all the time the fire is burning, it may breakout into the property.

ChimFireStop works by;

  • Extinguishing a chimney fire in an average time of just 22 seconds without the need for water.
  • Quickly starving the chimney fire of oxygen which in turn leads to the cooling of the chimney flue temperatures by an average of 53% in just two minutes.
  • ChimFireStop covers the internal flue with zinc oxide helping to form a barrier against the products left within the chimney flue from reigniting.

ChimFireStop can keep crews safe and negates the risks of putting them on roofs. Further, there would be virtually no need for antiquated mallaca cane rods and nimbus ferrell heads that invariably damage the stainless steel flexible liners found with most wood burning and solid fuel stoves. This is because the canes are not flexible enough and the nimbus has the potential to push straight through the side of the flue liner.

ChimFireStop releases the crew in a fraction of the time compared to using existing methods.

This is written by a Firefighter with 22 years’ experience that is also a HETAS registered installer and a chimney sweep. He can see the problem of chimney fires from every angle.

“From trying to prevent chimney fires with regular sweeping and educating the user about what to burn. To extinguishing them whilst I am on duty. And finally getting calls from customers who have had a chimney fire and need me to make sure it is still safe to use. Taking my own personal experiences into account ChimFireStop would have been an invaluable tool to have on the appliance”.

Why The Fire Services Need ChimFireStop

In December 2017 in the UK ChimFireStop was endorsed, recommended and recognised as a chimney fire safety product by The National Association of Chimney Sweeps.

ChimFireStop has been trusted in North America to help put out chimney fires for over 45 years where it is recognised by The Chimney Safety Institute of America.

Having worked for more than 20 years as a chimney sweep, I have often witnessed the consequences of chimney fires and the cost of these fires to the insurance world.

The Fire Service are all too aware of the devastating consequences of chimney fires and also, the cost of these fires to the insurance world. In England and Wales there are around 7,000 chimney fires a year, incurring an average of £10,000 per property in repairs.  With thatch properties the average cost to the property is estimated at £480,000 per property.

The traditional way to combat chimney fires is to use a water bucket and stirrup pump. This antiquated solution often results in numerous problems such as damage to brickwork, surrounding carpets, floors and interior decor as well as damage to the flue lining from thermal shock.

When traditional equipment fails to suppress the chimney fire, then the use of ladders for roof access or breaking into the flue within the property poses multiple health and safety risks for fire fighters.

Chimney Fire Extinguisher 

Our Chimney Fire Extinguisher, ‘ChimFireStop’ can put an end to these problems. It is a recognised and approved chimney fire extinguisher that:

  1. Stops a chimney fire in around 22 seconds without using water!
  2. Reduces hot chimney temperatures by an average of 53% in just two minutes!
  3. Does not course thermal shock to the chimney flue structure.
  4. Reduces the need for additional Tenders and man power.
  5. Minimizes health and safety associated risks.
  6. Dramatically reduces the costs and time it takes to control a chimney fire.
  7. Has been European tested and is now being sold in the UK and across Europe.

Fire Services across the country – this chimney fire extinguisher could become an essential part of your fire control procedure.

Myself and the team would love to conduct a live demo of the product to any Fire Service in the UK.
