  1. Could you please explain how the end user is supposed to
    “suitably protect shieldmaster twin wall flue against potentially hazardous external environmental influences. This particularly concerns exposed, coastal locations”.
    Does this make the warrenty invalid if the flue is near the coast?

    1. This can be achieved using a specialist protective coating or by having the product professionaly painted. And I’m afraid it will hinder the warranty, yes.

  2. Am I to understand that you will you only honour the warranty if the product has a “specialist protective coating” added to it?
    Could you also explain what the specialist protective coating is?

    1. I’m afraid so yes, due to the corrosive nature of the elements in coastal locations and their affect on uncoated metals.
