    Thanks for the advice regarding the smoke! I’m not sure what make and model the burner is but it’s a Danfoss BFP 11 pump. I won’t be there until tomorrow night but I will see if I can get any more information. Thanks again

    Thanks for all the replies! I didn’t realise there were different levels of obscurity with glass and I didn’t even think of applying a film. That sounds like a great option! Thanks again!

    Hi Chaps Is it possible to retrofit sealed units with integral blinds into existing upvc frames? I Have a large bathroom window and although it's obscure glass it is actually quite transparent! If they are available can you suggest a source? Many thanks!
