Inspection Hatch professionally installed

On Friday 10th July 2015, we installed some inspection hatches. The client was made aware the day before that our gas safety engineer could not examine the whole length of the flue, and  in line with industry guidance, that it is 'At Risk'. 'At risk' is a risk classification used by gas engineers and means that your boiler and flue system could become dangerous in the future, in this case it is used because the engineer cannot examine the length of the flue to confirm it is safe. As a consumer you are within your rights to refuse permission for it to be turned off, however you will be asked to sign paperwork to confirm you accept responsibility for those defects identified in the system – in this case, the potential for fumes to escape unnoticed from the concealed flue into the property. The solution was to install inspection hatches so the engineer could than examine the flue; once done, his boiler was than deemed 'safe to use' on the gas safety certificate. Inspection Hatch
