Swift supply and installation of the most appropriate birdguard for your property
Chimney cowls, chimney caps and chimney pot bird guards are a vital part of any flue system, both for preventing smoke entry into the home and bird nesting in the chimney. Here at EnviroFlame, we can swiftly supply and install the most appropriate model at your property.
Cowls and caps are metal or clay hoods or coverings that are affixed to the top of a chimney pot, preventing wind from blowing back down into the chimney. This ensures the correct airflow for the expulsion of smoke out of the house, stopping draughts of wind from causing the smoke to re-enter the home.
Some models of cowl can also prevent bird entry into the chimney, though birdguards for chimneys can be sold as completely different pieces of equipment, their sole purpose being to prevent birds and small mammals from entering the home via the chimney.
Here at EnviroFlame, we install a wide variety of chimney cowls, including UFOs, Brewer cowls, spinning cowls, anti-downdraft terminals and many more.
Our chimney cap installation is carried out by our specialist team who install this equipment using ladders, roof access or cherry pickers. As always, we install in adherence with industry standards of safety and professionalism, so you can trust in high-quality products and services every time.
Any blockage or disturbance to a chimney can be a danger to its operation and performance, so preventing these problems before they have a chance to crop up is always wise.
Birds can play havoc with our chimneys if we don’t put in proper measures to stop their entry. Birdguard terminals prevent birds and other small animals, such as squirrels, from becoming trapped down the chimney which is good news for them, and for you.

To prevent downdraught (e.g. air that blows back down into the chimney) you should install an anti-draught cowl to the top of the chimney pot to prevent wind entry and therefore smoke from entering the home.
Both birdguards and some types of chimney cowl can prevent bird entry into your chimney by placing a barrier between the flue and the outside. You need to consult with a professional, such as EnviroFlame, to find the most suitable one for you.
When choosing a chimney cowl or cap for your home, there are several models to choose from. Always consult with a professional company who can guide you through the options available to ensure that you receive a model suited to your needs.
A spinning chimney cowl will spin in the wind to enhance the updraught within the chimney, urging the smoke and air to work its way up the chimney and out.
Yes, if you have a stove that is attached to a flue system that expels smoke, then you can benefit from a chimney cowl, just in the same way as with a fireplace.
