What is it for?
If you have a problem with downdraught and are burning solid fuel (wood, coal or oil) then the UFO (Ultimate Flue Outlet) is a good solution and has been used for many years to good effect. The UFO’s specially shaped discs channel wind to create an updraught (or lower pressure) at the top of the system to counteract wind related downdraught. The UFO Solid Fuel Cowl also protects against the entry of birds into your chimney through the use of a mesh guard.
What sizes & options are available?
A UFO Solid Fuel Cowl will fit onto a standard round chimney pot with 150mm to 250mm internal diameter (6” to 10”).
The UFO Solid Fuel Cowl is made in either powder coated aluminium available in terracotta, buff or black or in stainless steel available in natural (unpainted), or powder coated terracotta, buff or black.
How do I fit one?
The UFO Solid Fuel Cowl is supplied fully assembled. Once up on the roof, it is the work of a few minutes to attach the UFO Solid Fuel Cowl using the stainless steel strap provided.
