This cowl has a 15 YEAR GUARANTEE from Duraflue and is quality engineering. It will not rust and launch itself onto the drive in a year or two like MOST others on the market have a tendency to do. "This really is an issue with many cowls - has happened to me as a fitter too many times... never again" (Julian, Patrick, author of The Stove Fitter's Manual).
Anti-bird/rain cowl that attaches directly to your chimney liner (using a stainless steel Jubilee clip) and then secured to a round-topped chimney pot of 8-11.5" external diameter (again with a Jubilee clip). Available in colours: steel and terracotta (terracotta version is same stainless steel material).
Hanging cowls and adaptors sold on this site are sold by the Duraflue people: NO external spot welds that will cause cowl to break away from pot, NO folds, NO weak spots and only 316-grade stainless steel used.
I have in the past, as a full-time installer, purchased other cowls in the past and they have failed, some within a year. Don't just buy on price - it's not worth it! External spot welds are prone to failure.
Julian was very helpful in every aspect of ordering. Everything delivered promptly and all easy to fit
Ordered chimney flue liner from Stovefitters Warehouse and it was good quality, would recommend both supplier and product.
Good service, competitive pricing and polite helpful staff who rectified a problem I did have with the stove delivered.
Very well built, bright colour. Would recommend
Excellent quality, fitted both items, delivered on time,
Great quality and easy to install. It costs more than others but it is well worth the money.
Great quality chimney cowl, very sturdy and easy to install. Will last for a very long time so well worth the cost.
Great deal...great price on the boiler and the flue for free!...very happy...delivery as advised...appreciated Thanks Tony
Very good and competent phone advice. Everything you ever wanted to know about stoves and flues on their website. Very impressed with quality of flue liner and cowl they recommended.
Was recommended to me by a friend who used them before.
We took your advice and ordered the quality one so that we don't have to go back on the roof for a good few years. We would always prefer to do the job properly once, than have to replace more often. It looks and feels great. Thank you.
Superb quality chimney cowl. This particular one is actually manufactured by Colt Chimney Cowls who have been around Donkeys years! I have used many Colt Cowls in the past and found them all to be of superb quality, and this one is no different! If i have learnt one thing over the years it is to go for value over 'cheap' Great products from Stovefitters! Thanks!
Decided to order the best cowl available ......... I don't want to be up in that roof again any time soon ! The cowl is reassuringly heavy and I m confident that it will give years of faithful service. The service from Stove fitters has been top drawer.
Fitted perfectly very and very secure.
Without the wealth of information on this website i would have struggled to fit my glorious multi fuel stove and be able to run it.
Fast service, good product. Lots of useful, free information on web site; cheers.
After doing a lot of reading on the Stove Fitters Manual site I bought this cowl as part of the setup for my first ever stove instal. Unfortunately this means I don’t really have anything to compare the cowl to. However, all I can say is that it was plenty larger than I had imagined but looks built to last. As the descriptions says, there are no spot welds and nothing that looked like an obvious point of weakness.
Not cheap but get the feeling it’ll be a good few years before I am on the roof again having to replace it.
All in all - delighted.
Just wanted to say thank you for your support, there are a lot of different liners on the market and with your help I was able to choose the right product for my application, also, your advice make the installation make it very straight forward. Having an expert expert on the other end of the phone is absolutely priceless.
I'd recommend Stovefitters Warehouse every time.
Found these guys online after I received poor service from a local dealer! Quick response and great price on my burley debdale with chimney liner kit. The stove is brilliant. Thanks guys
Recommended and sold by everyone and seemed like a good product when installing.
The cowl looks well made and durable. Up on the chimney pot it blends well with the colour of the pot (terracotta) and its shape fits reasonably well into the surrounding assortment of pots.
These things aren't cheap but, when you see them at ground level, they're much larger than you might imagine and the quality is excellent. Had no problems fitting. This is one of the most unpleasant parts of the whole job so you wouldn't want to be going up on the roof again to replace a slightly cheaper steel one which had rusted!
Purchased new stove ,liner etc , courier was next day delivery, driver was very helpfull unloading, stove installed running perfect.thanks stovefitters warehouse very good do deal with.
Slight error with order but sorted quickly without any fuss. Highly recommend.
Found the Duraflue cowl to be made from decent grade of stainless steel very and robust. My only gripe when fitting to pot was the jubilee clip slips if you over tighten it, so be careful. I've now got to convince the resident crow it's not a bird feeder.
I thought the cowl was quite substantial, maybe not as robust as I was expecting. I also expected it to be marked as Duraflue, which I think it is not.
I was not fitting this hanging cowl to a pot, so I had to modify the straps slightly so that I could bolt it down to a stainless plate which sits on top of my stack. Hope this helps, Regards, Danny
i bought two 8m lengths of the dura flue liner for my two chimneys along with the pot hanging cowl in terracotta and the 6-5" adaptor for the stove pipe , they all arrived as promised on time well packaged and u damaged , the cowls finish the chimney pots great and were easy to fit to the liner as with the adapters , the liner seems good quality as expected and as it can be fitted both ways I didn't have to worry about if they were the right way up, great company to deal with and great products , would happily use again although hopefully won't have to as the liner has 30 year life :)
This cowl looks very good quality, the stainless steel looks good and it looks like it will last for years. The small screws that join the top of the cowl to the base are very small and they have been known to fail. To counter this you are supplied with a paste to apply to the bolts to prolong their life. It would be better to just fit larger bolts, the size of the cowl could take it.
The quality of the parts is superb, especially the duraflue and the stainless steel cowl. In fact my chimney sweep thought the cowl alone would be £200.
Prior to ordering I got a few local quotes and I know I have saved in excess of £1,000.
I feel confident that this is a better product than some of the liners around, and my fitter said the hanging cowl made it easy to fit - bingo, liner in and stove in my fireplace, thanks!
Excellent piece of kit, and really good quality. One of the clamping bands was dodgy and wouldn't tighten properly without jumping thread, other wise would have rated 5.
Seems as described on Stove Fitters Warehouse. Easy strapping mechanism to use on a roof.
Good cowl but didn't receive the extra 'hardening putty' to stop the bolts undoing, so put some thread lock glue and Areldite on the heads.
The hanging cowl from Duraflue is of excellent quality and was easy to fit. Once again the Stove Fitters Warehouse only sells what Julian think is of the best quality. No junk!
you can tell by the weight of the cowl that it's not the cheap stainless steel that will rust in a season , fit and forget is the motto with this cowl :)
No problems great service would recommend to anybody doing wood burner install
Excellent item and great service!
