It’s official – we are BBA Certified!

We have exciting news! Last weekend, at the Futurebuild Show in London, we were awarded with our BBA Agrément Certificate. It has been a long road of rigorous product testing on The Chimney Sheep® but we now officially have this industry-leading certification. This makes us the only chimney draught excluder on the market to have BBA approval – hooray!
The Chimney Sheep® is a removable chimney draught excluder made of felted Herdwick wool – it blocks 94% of airflow which results in reduced energy wastage. Being made of wool the product is naturally breathable, sustainable and environmentally friendly.
With the BBA Agrément Certificate, The Chimney Sheep® will now be recognised by building control, government departments, specifiers, and insurers as meeting the BBA’s standards of quality, safety and reliability; providing them with reassurance of the product’s fitness for purpose.
Seen throughout the world as a credible industry body, the BBA certification is awarded only after a product has passed a series of comprehensive assessments. The Chimney Sheep® has been through numerous laboratory tests, on-site evaluations, quality management checks and product inspections, over the last several years passing all of them with flying colours!
Commenting on the BBA award, our founder, Sally Phillips stated, “This has been a culmination of five years’ works and is such a huge achievement for us. The BBA certification will open us up to lots of opportunities as it will demonstrate to the market-place that the Chimney Sheep® is both safe and fit-for-purpose. I really believe that this marks the beginning of the next stage of the business by making the product more mainstream and hopefully allowing us to be incorporated not just into consumer homes but also as part of corporate eco-obligations.
