For several years Capvond Composites have produced many different styles of GRP mock chimneys. These are sometimes called false chimneys, dummy chimneys, imitation chimneys or fake chimneys. Not only are the GRP mock chimneys or false chimneys decorative but they also serve to disguise heating vents protruding through the roof structure which may not blend with surrounding architecture or with the house style.
Due to their strong but lightweight design, a large amount of space can be saved by the lack of construction work supporting the GRP mock or false chimney. This can be considerable benefit during the design of offices, nursing homes, hotels and other commercial premises, allowing for free use of space to maximum extent. Many types of GRP mock or false chimney have been produced from simple single pot designs suitable for small houses through to large multi-pot designs which can stand over two meters high.
Fixed to the roof by a simply constructed upstand, the finish of each design may vary from smooth through to roughly texture. Each GRP mock or false chimney is made to order and to specific design.
Gable end chimney fitting systems are available to suit building methods.
