• Cowls


Although stoves can be installed in a chimney without a cowl they do perform several important functions.

Cowls come in many, many different types, shapes and sizes.

They help to deflect rain from coming down the chimney and inside the liner which can be damaging.

Some are used to support the flexible liner and sit on top of the chimney pot.

Some have bird guard mesh to stop birds from nesting inside the chimney when the stove is not being used.  

Some are designed to help with poor draught.
