Case studies

…how can I help you?

Fire prevention is important to us.

Case studies of Uwe Serbser.

Building of chimney outlets requires different constructions. The example shows a double-draught chimney of fireplaces for solid fuels as well as of gas calorific value boilers. In this case certain legal requirements of fire prevention must be considered due to different fire behaviour of building materials.

Safety devices save life!

For correct functioning of fireplaces, regulated by room air, it is necessary that facilities are regarded as a whole. Room air regulated fireplaces consume oxygen, regardless of the used fuel. Many technical devices require safety devices according to legal building regulations.

Planning of new chimneys

Case studies of Uwe Serbser.

The construction of a new chimney requires the compliance with regulations and principles, which are not only limited to constructional fire prevention but also to the actual execution of construction work. This cannot be separated from one another. Finally a chimney is a separate structure inside a building. Important criteria are: suitable building materials, variations of systems, fire prevention, as well as terms of use and design.

Old building – ventilation systems – fire prevention

Case studies of Uwe Serbser.

Repairs of fire places require correct use of adequate building components made of non-combustible materials. Fire resistance, which results from the fundamentals of several components, is to be considered in detail.

Refurbishment of chimneys

Case studies of Uwe Serbser.

Functional disorders of fire places arouse dampness and moisture inside a chimney. This can be prevented by using stainless steel tubes. Several constructions of different materials allow many possible applications. Crucial points of refurbishing chimneys are: the correct matching of building materials, building physics and construction chemistry.

Reconstruction of chimneys

Case studies of Uwe Serbser.

Leakages can result in the reconstruction of a chimney and implicate absolutely necessary planning and calculation of the firing system concerned. Or as shown in our example: one chimney gets two. All principles of building physics and material science have to be brought in line. German trade offers a high standard of training and solid fundamentals that ensure functional and lasting constructions.

About me

Experience and qualification in unison

About me

„One for all – all for one“

…is my maxim for everything what I do in private or career terms. I am a chimney sweep master with heart and soul as well as plenty of professional competence.

Born in Saalfeld in 1963, I was soon let in on the “secrets” of this trade. Already my father and grandfather were chimney sweep masters, and my brother and my uncle are in this old trade, too. Nevertheless I first decided on construction technology with university-entrance diploma. After leaving military service, however, I went into retraining to become a chimney sweeper. With a craft certificate in my pocket, I joined my father’s enterprise. In June 1988, I passed the examinations for the master craftsman’s certificate in Erfurt and went into self-employment two months later. My area of activities is located in the district of Saalfeld-Rudolstadt and includes some districts of Rudolstadt and neighbouring communities. There are about 2000 households are under my wings.



The trade of a chimney sweeper

As a chimney sweep master I check and examine fireplaces and their safety. I report shortcomings, supervise and assess building shells and finished constructions. Measurements of heating systems, which affect safety criteria and emissions, are analysed and gathered data are forwarded to the emission register. In addition to fire prevention, my attention is on environmental issues, and my customers get matter-of-fact energy and heating-related advice. As I attach importance to continuous further education, I qualified for constructional energy consulting in 1999 and the techniques of fire prevention with final TÜV-examinations in 2008. I also received certificates in gas appliance and service engineering. From 2000 to 2008, I was a board member of the guild of chimney sweepers and in the same function I am involved in the association of energy advisors, engineers and artisans of Thuringia today.
