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 200mm 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.
Swift delivery, item as ordered and in good condition.
Product appears to be made well. Fitted to chimney pot in dry weather, awaiting the winter rain to observe performance.

Looks the part, not lit the fire yet to test. Slight disappointment when product received as the two main parts are not concentric. This means that however I fit the flue it will be tilted.
