    I need to fit a "balanced flue terminal safety cage" i.e. a wire mesh
    cover to go over the exhaust outlet from my CH gas boiler.

    Any recommendations please for a source of same in the South
    Manchester/Cheshire area or web-based?

    You were not wrong David, but unfortunately they are the wrong
    shape, round, not rectangular, and way too small. I'm in need of
    one 420 x 500 mm wall footprint by 250mm projection from the wall.
    A bit like a supermarket basket... ...maybe we need to visit
    Tescos...

    Any other suggestions?

    The round ones are for fan-assisted flues, which are much smaller than
    non-fan flues.

    As a matter of interest, how much are they? Somewhat OT, I know - but it
    occurs to me that they might be just the thing to put round LV halogen
    downlighters to keep loft insulation away from the lamps.

    I bought wire mesh from B&Q then bent it into the shape needed and bolted it
    to the wall.
