Originally designed to increase the draw on appliances fired by oil, the Vedette cowl has since been found to be extremely effective against downdraught. Manufactured using stainless steel grade 430, these Vedette Cowls have mesh inserts, and are suitable for use with appliances fired by oil or gas.
Suitable for use with 125mm internal diameter pipes.
The Vedette cowl has a shaft which is just slightly under the diameter of the cowl, so for example, a 125mm Vedette cowl will have a shaft with a diameter of around 120mm. It then slides inside the chimney or flue system.
Fitting to a prefabricated chimney system
Slide the cowl inside the chimney system. Secure in place with stainless steel self tapping screws and seal with a high temperature silicone or sealant.
Fitting to a masonry chimney stack or pot
Slide inside the chimney or pot and mortar in place.

Vadette Col Very good and prompt service.
Early days with the cowl, awaiting stronger gusing winds, but so far all good. Little or no fumes and no 'flame outs',
Recommended by my Rayburn installer I understand this cowl was quite easy to install. Overall the quality is good although it was missing some mesh around the edges. We have a problem with Jackdaws dropping sticks down the chimney.
It is a false economy to buy a cheap cowl. Buy one of these and you won't be disappointed.
