Features + Benefits

  • Quality constructed from heavy-duty 26 gauge galvanized steel
  • An effective solution to chimney downdraft in windy areas
  • Cap separates the wind stream as it flows over the cap, while the rotating hood is kept in proper position (relative to the wind) by the wind vane
  • Air movement past the hood creates a partial vacuum in the flue, enhancing draft efficiency and helping to prevent downdrafts

Product Summary

The wind directional chimney cap is designed to be an effective solution to chimney downdraft in windy areas. The cap separates the wind stream as it flows over the cap, while the rotating hood is kept in proper position (relative to the wind) by the wind vane. Air movement past the hood creates a partial vacuum in the flue, enhancing draft efficiency and helping to prevent downdrafts. Quality constructed from heavy-duty 26 gauge galvanized steel. We recommend using Loctite c5-a copper anti-seize on the rotating bracket and cleaning creosote buildup to ensure cap functions correctly and is able to rotate without issues, this should be done annually or else as needed.

The wind directional chimney cap is engineered to slip around the OD (outside diameter) of a single wall pipe. For double/triple wall pipe, we also offer our WCASS wind cap adapter which will fit inside an insulated, double or triple wall pipe to create a mount for your wind directional cap (sold separately).

The wind directional chimney cap comes in a range of diameters from 5 inch to 14 inch with heights ranging from 14½ inch to 27 inch, see our specs sheet for more details.

    The Wind Directional Chimney Cap has a rotating hood that turns along with the winds direction. This would help solve that issue by blocking the wind and preventing smoke from coming back through the chimney.

    The Wind Directional Chimney Cap – Galvanized can work in your situation. It is rotated by the wind, so as long as the wind is strong enough, it will also cover the rain.

    The hood on this cap rotates with the direction of the wind and should prevent snow from coming in. As long as the load of snow is not too much, the wind movement should prevent snow from falling into the chimney.

  14. My Chimney flue is approximately 12″ x 16″, as I hope can be seen in the photo, attached. I live at the top of a hill in a very windy area. What product / approach do you recommend in order to take advantage of your wind cap products? (some sort of interfacing, etc.?)

    Unfortunately, we do not offer an exact match of that product. We do offer a Galvanized Square Flue Vacuum Cap that might work for your application.

  10. jojojosiah (verified customer)

    Low quality, especially for the price. Mine broke in less than 6 months. As soon as there is anything over a light breeze, the wind with bend in over the wrong way instead of turning it. The top part broke right off. I was also denied a refund. Will not be purchasing anything else from this site.

    • Daysia W (store manager)

      Hello Josiah, we appreciate you taking the time to share your product review and feedback. We are sorry to hear this product did not live up to your expectations. We were unable to get a warranty replacement approved with the manufacturer due to the length of time this product had been in use and for the inability to prove the cause of the failure. These chimney caps are made from high-quality 26 gauge galvanized steel and are designed to withstand even extreme weather conditions. We hope you will consider purchasing from us again in the future if the need arises.

  11. Bruce (verified customer)

    Like the product but there was no email confirmation when I ordered it. I had to email to get a response. There were no status emails either. Most places do this and also give notifications when item is shipped so you can track your order. You need to add all of that.

    • Daysia W (store manager)

      Hi Bruce! We are sorry to hear you did not receive any email confirmations for your order or for shipping. Our system is set up to send out these types of emails to all customers. There is a chance these emails may have ended up in your spam inbox. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns and we are happy to help!
