Chimney Cowls

Chimney Cowls

Chimney Cowls are manufactured to be fitted to the top of a chimney pot or multi fuel chimney flues, mainly the unit is added to improve the airflow or flue function. They have several purposes, from stopping birds, preventing rain entry, increase updraught or decrease downdraughts, stop carbon monoxide from flowing back into the room. While cowls can solve these issues, when fitted they enhance the performance of the stove and chimney stack as the gases and smoke that is naturally created are drawn up more efficiently by the cowl itself. So if you have an issue, be it with smoke not flowing correctly or you suddenly find an animal in the living room! Then take a look at our range of cowls for wood burners and cowls for gas fires. NCC have a great stock selection to buy online, most are very easy to fit as standard, we also supply to the trade so if you are a business owner then drop us a line via our contact form to set up your trade account and benefit from our discounts.

How Do You Fit A Chimney Cowl

Cowls, come in lots of different styles as there is a wide range of issues with chimneys and stoves that they can help to solve. Fitting a cowl is straight forward and can be done by merely strapping, bolt fixing or installing a sleeve over the chimney itself. The fixing is clean and does not cause damage to the flue or the stack, so you can remove or replace them without leaving marks or holes. Strapping is by far the most secure option to fix a chimney cowl to the top of a chimney, and almost all our cowls are available with this fixing method. NCC Stock an extensive range of quality items for many stove fuel types from top brands like MAD Cowls, C-Caps and more.

What are the different types of chimney cowl available?

NCC stock many different types, depending on the issue you are hoping to resolve including aluminium, stainless steel and strap fix cowls.

Bird guards

Bird guards are one of the most simple forms of cowl available. They are typically mesh-shaped, to prevent birds from entering the chimney space, while still giving good ventalation in and out of the chimney. NCC stock many different bird guards depending on the type of chimney you have. Options include guards for gas or solid fuel, or alternatively opt for a sprung bird guard or balloon mesh bird guard, depending on the design you are looking for.

Chimney Caps

Caps are another very useful form of chimney cowl. Chimney Caps are a single piece of material that caps straight over the chimney top to prevent water from entering into the chimney space stopping issues caused by long term moisture. Choose from our range from C-Caps, they are durable and robust and provide a subtle finish to the chimney top.

Spark Arrestors

Spark arrestor cowls are designed to reduce and eliminate sparks from the chimney, the risk of this could cause damage and ignite fires. Spark arrestor cowls are often used on thatched roofs, where a small spark could ignite the whole roof, causing severe damage.
