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, and with mesh inserts, makes this Vedette Cowl suitable for use with appliances fired by oil or gas. Please note that this Vedette Cowl is NOT suitable for use with appliances fired by solid fuel. Please see the solid fuel versions that we have available.
Suitable for use with 100mm 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.

Very speedy delivery Ordered this cowl on the advice of the engineer who services my oil fired Rayburn. It replaces an old H cowl that had been in situ for many years. It's a windy site so remains to be seen if it is effective but early signs are good. Seems to be reasonably good quality, only took minutes to fit.
So far, so good The cowl was delivered very fast, and I have fitted it to my AGA flue, hoping that next time we have high winds the AGA doesn't blow out. No high winds since I fitted it, so can't report on its down-draught-preventing properties. It was easy to slip in, and was fastened with self-tapping screws.
