Each Chimney C-Cap now comes with a 5 year guarantee
The C-Cap Chimney Cap is a Robust, High Durable, UV Resistant and has a well-proven record for reliability and faultless performance. This Chimney Cap is designed to fit any standard design round chimney pot, up to 280mm external diameter.

Fitting or removal is simple and takes seconds, requiring no special skills. However, gaining access to pots should only be undertaken by a suitably experienced person using appropriate access equipment.

• Pots need to be in sound condition. Any cracked pot should either be replaced or suitably bound to accept lateral pressure from the retaining spring wires.

• The C-Cap is for use on redundant, disused chimneys only. Care needs to be taken that capping is not carried out to any flue that is still in use. Check it first!

• As with any capping, the flue should preferably be swept clean and any obstruction (e.g. bird's nests) removed.

• C-Cap has been site-tested over 10 years and in severe gale conditions from Cornwall to the Orkneys.

• Tough, moulded material ideally suited to outdoor applications, the C-Cap fits neatly over the chimney pot where it is retained by galvanised steel spring wires.
It can be fitted to any standard round pot up to 280mm diameter and is light enough to allow several to easily be carried up the roof, where fitting to the pot takes a matter of seconds.

• Many thousands of C-Caps are fitted throughout the UK, as far north as the Orkneys, and it is the only cowl for disused chimneys that guarantees 100% protection against rain, snow, gales, birds etc. – in fact everything nature can throw at it.

• All C-Caps are supplied with an optional ‘insect screen’ to provide additional protection against nesting wasps. This can simply be fitted with the C-Cap at the discretion of you, as appropriate.

• Pots need to be in sound condition. Any cracked pot should either be replaced or suitably strapped to allow insertion of the C-Cap retaining wires.

• The unique design of the C-Cap allows continuous, permanent ventilation of the chimney, as recommended by Building Research Establishment (BRE).

Left uncapped, disused chimneys are prone to a number of major problems arising from exposure to the elements and blockage by nesting birds.

Fitting a C-Cap provides instant protection against these problems, potentially saving hundreds of pounds on costly repairs. Fitting takes seconds and can readily be carried out by any local contractor, chimney sweep etc. with the necessary equipment for roof access.

The Building Research Establishment (BRE) recommends disused chimneys should be capped off at the top with a ventilated capping.

Where a disused chimney is left uncapped, it is open to the UK weather, which annually can be relied upon to deposit several feet depth of water down the average chimney. This can give rise to damp stains appearing internally and over time it contributes to steady internal deterioration of the fabric of the stack.

Blockage of the chimney by nesting rooks will not stop the rain getting in but it will tend to trap the moisture in the chimney by blocking ventilation and preventing the moisture from drying out.

Not to mention the dreadful unhygienic mess that nesting rooks can cause and the difficulty of removing the nests once established!

Rain entry into redundant chimneys is one of the main causes of structural decay to chimney stacks. The decay, caused by the natural freeze/thaw cycle of the weather, can ultimately cause great expense. Water works its way into the mortar between the brickwork and as it freezes, expands, eventually leading to cracks in the brickwork.

Our Chimney Capper offers a simple solution at a low price that prevents rain, bird and debris entry while still allowing nominal ventilation.

Stainless steel strap and fitting instructions included.

This Chimney Cap will fit Chimney Pots up to 330mm x 330mm (13" x 13") External Diameter which will cover Chimney Pots with and internal diameter between 150mm to 250mm (6" to 10").

How to choose a Chimney Cap or Chimney Cowl for your Chimney Pot

If you can accurately guess the size or width of the chimney pot from the floor you can order the right Cap or Cowl from Chimney Cowl Products. The good news is this is relatively easy once you know the rough size of a house brick and the thickness of the walls of a chimney pot.

Using either the naked eye or a set of binoculars get a 'side on' view of the chimney pot you wish to cap or fit a chimney cowl, then find a full sized brick nearest to the chosen pot as a reference, normally directly underneath.

Now imagine that the brick is placed on top of the chimney pot itself and make a mental note whether it would fit inside, hang over, or sit flush. It may sound silly but once you know that the width of an average UK house brick is 225mm ( 9" ) for imperial or 215 ( 8 and half " ) on a modern property, it provides a very accurate impromptu tape measure.

The other factor you may need is internal pot size, this can also be guessed quite accurately if you know the average thickness of a chimney pot is about 25mm ( 1" ) , simply factor this in and you can work out most chimney pot width's quite accurately.

If you have large decorative rolls on top of the pot, make an allowance for this by guessing, using a brick as your guide.

That's it, our range of Chimney Cowls and Caps are all available for immediate delivery.
