Capvond Composites have been producing GRP chimneys in many different styles for a number of years. GRP chimneys are also known as Glass Reinforved Plastic chimneys (or mock chimneys, false chimneys, imitation chimneys). Our GRP chimneys have the benefit of being decorative while at the same time helping to disguise heating vents that protrude through your roof. Sometime these vents don't fit in with the surrounding architecture of the house style and our GRP chimneys are perfect for disguising them.
Our GRP chimneys are very strong but lightweight in their design. This allows for a large amount of space to be saved due to the lack of construction work supporting the GRP chimney. The benefit of this will be felt in the design of offices, hotels, nursing homes and other commercial premises. We can produce many types of GRP chimneys from a simple single pot design for small houses, right through to large multi-pot designs which can stand over two metres in height.
Stuart Richmond of Mactaggart Construction said of our GRP chimneys: "our client couldn't believe the copes and pots weren't real stone".
Our GRP chimneys are fixed to the roof by a simple constructed upstand. The finish of each GRP chimney can vary from smooth to rough texture, with each GRP chimney made to order and to a specific design, making our GRP chimneys the perfect bespoke solution.
