  2. THE FACTS ABOUT STAINLESS STEEL KITCHEN SINKS

    Well over half of the world’s kitchen sinks are manufactured from stainless steel. It’s lightweight, easy to clean and maintain, and resistant to corrosion and rust. And it’s an extremely versatile material for sink design, so there’s an incredibly wide choice of styles and configurations – something to suit any kitchen.

    What is stainless steel?

    Stainless steel is a low-carbon steel alloy with a composition that includes at least 10.5% chromium. Higher percentages of chromium indicate superior quality.

    For stainless steel sinks, this quality is typically measured by the ratio of chromium to nickel present in the alloy – written as, for example, ’18:10’ (meaning 18% chro

    HOW TO SOLVE SOME COMMON GAS FIRE PROBLEMS

    (AND AVOID SOME OF THEM HAPPENING IN THE FIRST PLACE)

    You take good care of your gas fire – keeping it clean and free of dust and residues, and always making sure that it’s inspected by a certified technician every year.

    That should mean your fire will have a long and very reliable life. But even in spite of this, problems may sometimes occur.

    Ignition is unreliable, or fails completely

    Does the fire control use mains electricity for ignition? Check that the supply hasn’t been interrupted. If you’re using a remote control, then replace the batteries before you do anything else. Most ignition problems are that simple.

    It’s worth making sure that your gas

    How to MAINTAIN YOUR GAS FIRE?

    Because modern high-quality gas fires burn so cleanly and efficiently, it’s easy to assume that they don’t need much looking after. And it’s true that gas fires need much less maintenance than, say, a wood-burning fire or stove. But that doesn’t mean they don’t need regular care and attention.

    Keeping it clean

    Your gas fire works hard to heat your home, so it’s not surprising that it can get a little dirty and worn over time.

    To keep things working at peak efficiency, your fire should be cleaned every year. Inspect the air vents, the flue and inside the chimney (if you have one) for residue and de

  8. What is a balanced flue gas fire?

    WHAT IS A BALANCED FLUE GAS FIRE?

    Balanced flue gas fires draw air through a flue installed in an exterior-facing wall. The same flue is also used to expel spent gases from the fire. This means balanced flue fires are entirely sealed heating systems that can be fitted anywhere, with no need for a chimney. (All that’s required is an outside wall!) These fires are therefore extremely versatile, much more so than traditional gas fires.

    Sometimes known as ‘closed combustion’ gas appliances because they contain combustion within a closed system, balanced flue gas fires are always glass-fronted units. This arrangement not only warms the room more economically (air and gas circulate behind heat-resistant glass with maximum efficiency and no excess heat loss), it also offers a wider choice of styles and sizes for your fire.

  9. Do you need a flue with a gas fire?

    DO YOU NEED A FLUE WITH A GAS FIRE?

    All gas fires need a flow of air to function properly. They draw in draught air and/or air from the room to support combustion, and safely expel burnt excess gases into the atmosphere. Broadly speaking, there are two types of flue used in gas fires: Open Combustion and Closed Combustion.

    • Conventional flue gas fires (aka ‘open combustion’) make use of a chimney to draw fresh air and expel waste. 

    Traditional open-fronted fires also draw from the surrounding room to aid convection and circulation. Such arrangements are becoming increasingly rare, however, as the majority of modern conventional flue gas fires tend to be glass-fronted.

    This is because a fire protected by heat-resistant glass is more energy efficient. And it’s safer too. Modern glass-fronted conventional flue fires are equipped with intakes that effic
