In accordance with the present invention a.

chimney, or the like 'is provided with a lining in the for-m of separate panels and said panels are secured to the chinineycr like wall by means" of clamps located atsuccessivepoints and cover striipsf or bars which are engaged by said-clamps to; hold the panelsinposition andtov cover the joints between adjacent panels.

Thefclan'ips '3 are'proiiided with lugs I rib; referred to hereinafter, on the cover l ieus sections, for example 7 efiigth said webs exten ng to near the lateral "cover strips. ,At eachend saidcover The part of said step engaged by the lugs is preferably enlarged or thickened on the upper face as shown at I i.

In the formation of a chimney lining in accordance with the present invention, the clamps 3 are located at the points where several panels I join; clamps having two or more sets of lugs being used according to whether there are two or more lines of joint to be covered. In the position indicated in Figs. 1 and 7, it is assumed that the clamp 3 is located at a point where four panels join, and such clamp is provided with lugs 6 on all four sides. Of course some of the joints may extend peripherally of the chimney and in such case the cover strips concerned would be curved to suit the configuration of the chimney as indicated on Fig. 6, while other lines of joint might extend vertically and straight cover strips, as shown in Fig. 5, would be used. Also if lengthy lining panels were used, one or more clamps could be disposed intermediately of a single line of joint, such clamps having lugs on two opposite sides only.

The lining plates may be bedded on a plastic coating layer and the cavity under the cover strips is also filled during assembly with a plastic filling compound to ensure complete sealing of the joints, while furthermore the recess 4 is filled with a plastic compound so that the head 5 of the bolt is protected.

It will be appreciated that the method described ensures a secure fixing of the lining panels and an efficient sealing of the joints but the expansion and contraction of the chimney does not lead to detrimental stressing of the clamps or cover strips owing to thearticulated or semi-free connection between these parts which allows a limited degree of free movement.

I claim:

1. A chimney, duct or the like comprising an outer structure forming the chimney proper, a plurality of lining panels within said structure, cast iron cover bars covering the joints between adjacent panels, clamps engaging said cover bars and means to secure said clamps to the aforesaid structure.
