What is it for?
For use with either disused (redundant) or live solid fuel systems (including wood, coal, and oil) the Round Solid Fuel Birdguard can be a great option. If you have a problem with large birds or squirrels trying to make a home in your chimney then the Round Solid Fuel Birdguard is an excellent choice of defence. It also offers protection from rainfall due to the cap being included in the design. If you have a gas system then take a look at our Brewer Round Gas Birdguard.

This Round Birdguard will fit onto a round chimney pot with dimensions between 150mm & 250mm (6 to 10) internal diameter.
The Round Solid Fuel Birdguard is made from Stainless steel and can be either natural (unpainted) or painted terracotta, buff or black.
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.
