Schiedel – a name you can Trust.

Schiedel Chimney Systems Ltd. is the leading flue and Chimney Manufacturer in the UK and a world brand.

In the UK we have been manufacturing, the Rite Vent Brand of Steel Products at our plant in Washington, Tyne & Wear for almost 50 years. We also distribute the Isokern Pumice range from our office on the South Coast at Poole and the Ceramic range from Coalisland, Northern Ireland as well as Poole.

After acquiring Ontop Metaloterm, we now manufacture the Metaloterm range of products for Commercial and Residential applications throughout the UK and are happy to discuss new distribution opportunities.

For those who previously sourced Ontop MF, ME, US and Flex from Docherty Trade, who have ceased trading, we would like to reassure them that we are able to supply the entire range without any break in continuity of service.

We are proud that we have a comprehensive range of products which cover any project, be it large or small, plus we are happy to back this with excellent Customer Support, with Sales Teams in Washington, Poole and Coalisland.
