Limitations of Use for all Globe Type Revolving Chimney Cowls
Do not use a globe type revolving cowl on a bungalow or short flue that serves an appliance burning any type of solid fuel (wood, coal etc). The termperatures at the top of the chimney stack on these short flues will be in excess of the capacity of the cowl and you will not be covered under guarantee. We recommend the Dragon Cowl for these types of installation.
Good Spinning Cowl This revolving cowl is very popular, as it's painted, which means less reflection of sunlight whilst it's spinning. It's also very competitively priced when you consider that it has a stainless steel globe, and is painted. Recommended.

Quality Spinning Cowl Our neighbours recommended this Cowl to fix a common downdraught problem with our style houses (chimney in a valley and houses surrounded by trees). We chose the black so it wouldn't reflect flickering light when it spins. Good quality product, efficient service, prompt delivery. Thank you

Mad spinner cowl. Excellent product. Did exactly what we wanted it to do. i.e. help fire draw and prevent smoking when windy.
Great Product Well made, simple to fit and works!
A great product that may seem expensive at fist but worth the cost.

Brilliant! I wish I had installed this years ago. Has eliminated the draughts coming down the chimney and our room is now a lot warmer. A worthwhile investment.
Excellent Quality Resolved the problems we were having with a down draft on the flue. We are now able to use our wood burner whatever the weather
