If the problem (smoke or fumes coming out the fireplace or stove) occurs ONLY IN WINDY conditions then THIS IS A DOWNDRAUGHT. The anti down draught cowls to use are: A) Static Cowl if your problem is not severe (found here). B) A Spinner Cowl if the your problem is severe (found here).
If the problem (smoke or fumes coming out the fireplace or stove) occurs when there is LITTLE or NO WIND then this is not a downdraught. This is a LACK OF DRAUGHT.
No anti down draught cowl will fix a lack of draught there is only ONE cowl to fix a LACK OF DRAUGHT and that is an ELECTRIC cowl called the SUPER C.
If the Chimney Problem is heat loss, over performance of chimney, excessive fuel consumption or exterior noise in the chimney, then the cowl you need to fix this is the CHIMNEY CONTROL (found here).
If the problem is rain or birds nesting then the cowl you need is the Anti Bird/Anti Rain cowl (found here).
Please read our leaflets on each individual cowl which can be found on their product pages.
Because of its unique shape and design the Terracotta Static Anti Down Draught Chimney Cowl shields the chimney from light wind / air currents coming from any direction preventing down draught causing smoke to escape from the fireplace / stove or any appliance.
In addition, the Terracotta Static Anti Down Draught Chimney Cowl protects the chimney from moisture ingress and nesting birds.
The circular shape gives an exceptionally fast response to any air movement.
Balances the performance of the chimney through the Venturi Effect and this chimney cowl is especially suited to stove installations as it will aid the draught or upwards movement of gases in the chimney.
The Terracotta Static Anti Down Draught Chimney Cowl is also very effective at preventing driving rain.
The Terracotta Static Anti Down Draught Chimney Cowl offers maximum protection without impeding the performance of the chimney.
Highly effective at stopping the wind from entering the chimney in situations of occasional & not severe downdraught. If the problem is severe you need to install a Spinner Chimney Cowl.
Chimney Cowls are also known as Chimney Pots, Chimney Hoods or Chimney Caps. There are various names for these products but they are originally called Cowls.

What the Terracotta Static Chimney Cowl will not do:
This cowl will not prevent a very severe and continuous downdraught in your chimney – the Spinner Anti Down Draught Chimney Cowl will prevent this.
This cowl will not prevent a downdraught when there is no wind – if the problem still exists when there is no wind (in conditions such as cold, calm and frost) the problem is a lack of draught and a motorised chimney cowl is required such as the Super C Electric Fan Cowl. No anti down draught chimney cowl can solve a lack of draught.
Will not prevent a down draught if the chimney is more than 4 feet lower than the apex of the roof or 4 feet lower and in proximity to a taller structure, hedge, or tree(s)
Will fit most standard chimney pots - the Terracotta Static’s base diameter is 8” or 200mm. To fit the Static to a 6” chimney pot – a 6” Static must be purchased.
The Terracotta Static Anti Down Draught Chimney Cowl is very easy to install – only a screw driver is required. Fitting instructions supplied with each product. To fit the Static to a prefabricated or insulated flue – an appropriately sized Static must be purchased. We sell Static’s in additional sizes 5”, 6”, 12” plus a 9” Static suitable for a Hexangonal Chimney Pot. You can view the various Static’s by viewing the section called Chimney Cowls
In addition, we sell a unique product called a 50% Modified Static which will reduce the draught in an overperforming chimney by up to 50%. Click on the link above to view the product.
