Stove & Flue purchase

We have found Stovefitters' online information invaluable to making decisions and understanding what 'bits' we need to install our own multi-fuel burning stoves. We live above the imaginary line and even with the pallet delivery charge Stovefitters undercut the price of local suppliers in Inverness. We would buy again from them just to show our appreciation for their friendliness, openness and honesty when it comes to providing information on stoves and flues.

Twinwall Flue design & supply. (No.2).

We have just installed our 2nd twinwall flue & stove design by Julian at stove fitters, this time we had a DG Ivar 8 with Twinwall in our Grade 2 listed Barn in Sussex.
Yet again the process was straightforward, efficient & 1st class on price. A couple of items delayed due to lockdown were quickly sorted out by Arron.
If you are looking for a stove with/without a flue design, I can't imagine there is a better service anywhere else.
Thank you.

About the Windkat Cowl

Some chimneys just struggle to work as well as we would like. Like us humans chimneys can be a little on the short side, or too tall, or too fat and old. Chimneys that live in a particularly windy or turbulent location can often prove to be under achievers.

This is where the Windkat cowl comes "riding to the rescue". That chap in the picture on the left actually does arrive, cowl on head, astride a large black stallion, delivering your spanking new Windkat cowl directly to your door (pleaser note that should he prove unavailable we may use Parcelforce or some other courier).


The Windkat cowl works by directing gusts upwards via a series of ducts and nozzles, the resulting flow of air assisting the draw of the chimney rather than fighting against it.

This design, unlike spinning cowls, has no moving parts and therefore there is nothing to "stop working" or "seize up".

Fit to Twin Wall

It is very easy to fit your new Windkat cowl to your clip-together twin wall chimney. Just add a lit of the supplied heat-proof Silicon and slide it in.

Fit to Liner

Fit to chimney liner with the supplied Jubilee clip. If fitting to stack screw down to brickwork. If fitting to top of chimney pot use provided heat-proof Silicon.

Fit to Chimney Stack

Screw down to top of stack - simples.
