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 316, these Vedette Cowls have no mesh inserts, and are suitable for use with appliances fired by oil or solid fuel.
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.
Great product marvellous company This cowl works where others fail, we now have three of them on different buildings around our land and they do the job perfectly, no down drafts, none of the worry that the others gave us and the company are great, they deliver quickly and generally provide a good service.

Vedette Cowl Order was collected and in Parcelforce depot within 2 hrs of ordering. I had fitted a wood burning stove in my shed using part of an old oil boiler flue. Suffered terribly with downdraught due to shortness of the flue and shed position near the house and trees. Fitted the cowl and problem solved!

Vedette Cowl SW316 Complete satisfaction!
i actually bought this for a Pizza oven I built in our garden. I didn't realise just how much it'd be affected by the (we live in an exposed area about 750ft above sea level) wind.
Fitting this vedette has transformed it & we can now use it most of the time.
