| About Us
Quake Proof Chimneys (QPC) is a home grown, Kiwi company based in the Wellington region of New Zealand.
We're your one stop shop for replacement lightweight realistic brick-look chimneys. Whether you want to remove a masonry chimney from an existing building or add a realistic brick-look chimney to a new build home, renovation or commercial property then we have a lightweight fiberglass chimney to suit your needs.
| Our History
QPC began life in 2010 after the Christchurch earthquake had devastating effects on residential homes and masonry buildings where unsafe brick chimneys & falling masonry resulted in significant loss of life. It became the mission to “make homes safer” and more resilient to earthquakes and Quake Proof Chimneys was born. Since then, we’ve worked with customers across the country to design, manufacture and install lightweight chimneys made from either real bricks (brick slip) or fibreglass realistic brick-look chimneys including other products for homes and commercial properties.
| Why Us
We’ve partnered with fibreglass experts, engineers, contractors and worked tirelessly to design a strong, reliable, easy to install and affordable alternative to traditional heavy brick chimneys which are dangerous during an earthquake.
All of our chimneys are made in New Zealand and we’re so confident that you’ll love them and they’ll offer longstanding, exceptional performance year on year, that they all come with a 20 year manufacturers warranty.
| What we offer
Whether you need to replace an existing, unsafe heavy brick chimney with our lightweight replica, or want to incorporate a masonry-look chimney or feature wall for a renovation or a new build house, we’ve got you covered with our fire retardant fibreglass products to suit your needs.
We’ve got a range of standard fibreglass chimney designs to choose from, or we can design a custom brick-slip chimney to replace your existing chimney like-for-like.
With local councils and building laws becoming more and more stringent on the use of unreinforced masonry (bricks), and the enforced replacement of heavy brick chimneys in existing houses and heritage and commercial buildings, now’s the time to order your QPC lightweight fibreglass chimney.
As a homeowner, our replica chimneys will give you peace of mind that your property is safe for both you, your family, and others around you.
We pride ourselves on providing a complete, hassle free chimney removal and replacement service. We’ll help you choose the right lightweight chimney design for your property, take down your existing brick chimney, help with all the technical council building consents, work with our structural engineers to ensure that your new chimney is secured safely and to the building code. Then, we’ll install your new chimney, and re-instate walls and ceilings affected by removing your original one. Whilst we’re there our specialist team of subcontractors can also complete any other building work you want completed.
