Birdguard Chimney Cowls

Anti Downdraught Chimney Cowls

Anti downdraught cowls will generally perform all the functions of a birdguard cowl. In addition, they have been designed to prevent wind from being blown down the chimney stack.

This can help prevent smoke from a fire being blown into the room, and also help the fire burn more efficiently.

Anti Downdraught Chimney Cowls
Spinning Chimney Cowls

Spinning chimney cowls are also anti downdraught cowls. They take the concept one step further, and either rotate or spin to prevent wind being blown down the chimney stack.

The Dragon cowl, shown, rotates its back against the prevailing wind to prevent downdraught. Spinning chimney cowls rotate in the wind at speed top achieve the same effect.

Spinning Chimney Cowls
Disused Chimney Caps

As their name suggests, disused chimney caps are for use on chimneys that are no longer serving an appliance of any kind.

They literally cap off the top of the chimney. These caps will however allow a little ventilation to avoid damp build up with the chimney stack.
