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 150mm 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
