We live in an increasingly Electronic and Digital age where convenience and versatility have an overwhelming influence.
However, added to that, there are ever increasing practical considerations to bear in mind. In these days of political correctness we are bombarded with questions about our 'Carbon Footprint', the possibilities of litigation under the 'Health & Safety Acts' and our responsibilities for 'Risk Assessment'.
The challenge of 'Risk Assessment' is not having the benefit of hindsight yet needing to be able to assess the potential hazards and the probability and severity of any occurence.
Whilst the 'real flame' is normally viewed aesthetically as looking 'best' the only course offering a virtual zero risk is an electronic equivalent.
THE ELECTRONIC OPTION ALSO HELPS IN REMOVING GENERATIONS OF SOOT
Restoration to remove many years of soot often goes beyond cleaning the stonework to the renovation of the pews, new carpeting, refurbishment of the Stations of the Cross and restoration of art works. In order to retain the many beautiful colours and the many delicate finishes and features that have been revealed steps are often taken to avoid it ever happening again.
