The prefabricated, brick-effect FastStack chimney from Ibstock, the UK’s largest brickmaker, helps builders to significantly reduce the time spent on installation.

The new brick-effect chimneys are an enhancement to Ibstock’s popular and varied FastStack range of prefabricated options. Manufactured using the latest in Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) technology, the new brick-effect FastStack chimney is a lightweight option weighing 25kg on average, so it can be installed without the aid of specialist lifting equipment.

Furthermore, the new brick-effect FastStack chimney from Ibstock-Kevington, can also be built to match virtually any brick type blending seamlessly with existing brickwork, ensuring aesthetics are not compromised.

The single unit, brick-effect FastStack also includes an innovative rain bar system and effective flashing solution in conjunction with a simple lead apron at the front and rear of the chimney. The necessary aprons can be included and bonded in to position on the chimney ready for installation during construction. In addtion, the unit is incredibly weatherproof, due to the rain bar and manufacturing techniques used in the production of the FastStack.

Group Marketing Manager at Ibstock, Andrew Halstead-Smith, commented: “The lightweight, brick-effect, FastStack chimney is ideal for those facing time or labour challenges, helping to significantly shorten installation times. Yet, while the FastStack is even easier to install, its combination of glass reinforced polyester, together with brick clad exterior, means aesthetics need not be compromised.”

The range is available in a number of popular FastStack chimney styles including Othello, Hamlet, Hermia, Harcourt and Brandon. All of Ibstock’s brick-effect FastStack chimneys are CGMA approved and are supplied with standard mortar colour.
