Designed for the new generation of airtight homes, Schiedel Absolut XPert is the first Passivhaus certified chimney system in the world. Air tightness is built into the system. Suitable for use on all fuel types, with its GW3 rated ceramic profiled liner, Absolut XPert offers condensate resistance even after a soot fire.
Modern heating technologies place enormous demands on a chimney system. On the one hand, low flue gas temperatures from energy efficient appliances including gas, oil and pellets lead to condensate forming within the chimney. On the other hand, chimneys used on solid fuel applications must also be capable of withstanding a chimney fire.
Commenting on this new product David Wright, marketing manager for Schiedel UK said: As a company, Schiedel Chimney Systems is continually looking at the needs of the market. The Absolut XPert, extends the stove market range by providing houses with the comfort and aesthetics of a stove, where there is no need for heating, but there is a need for a system to heat water.
Understandably we are absolutely delighted to have already received the industry’s highest accolade at our launch event.
When designing the Absolut XPert, we had to ensure it was able to satisfy both the needs of modern heating technology and the latest energy efficiency building techniques. The Government wants all new build homes to be zero-carbon from 2016, so this is a market that is set to expand rapidly.
Schiedel Absolut XPert represents a comprehensive solution to the four main challenges raised by modern heating technology combined with the latest energy efficient building techniques. These challenges are: condensation forming on the chimney block; heat transmission to the outside of the building via the chimney block; the supply of air to the appliance in an air tight house and how to cope with the extremes of temperature resistance to condensate even after a chimney fire.
