Is Weather Protection Important to your Customers?

As you will know by now our flagship chimney cowl is quite naturally the one that includes our brand name in it’s title; The Mini Eurocowl.

Many people have said that it’s most important job is that of being an anti-downdraught cowl. We have written about these qualities before but we believe it to be more than a one trick pony and has a lot more to offer.


We have often been asked to educate our stockists on how the shape and design of the cowl offers increased protection for their customers. To help with this we thought what better place to start than here.

Lets start with how the shape protects against rain water dripping down the chimney. The dome on the top covers the exit route of the chimney pot to prevent rain shooting directly down. The rain will slide down the dome and fall onto the flange and away from the chimney.  The outer skirt surrounds the pot denying access to it from the side, therefore preventing rain getting in that way too! 

All of this you will see from the image below. 

Video evidence

So now you know how the design element of the cowl helps enhance protection and fight anti-downdraught issues. We don’t want to stop there though.

To help with the education process of your customers we have produced three separate videos to show the level of rain protection their stove will get. The videos below are all of the Mini Eurocowl being showered from different angles and how it deals with the water. 

No matter what installation system you use we have a video for you. One is attached to a chimney pot, one to a flexible liner and the other to a twin wall flue system. All with a bag attached to the bottom to show how much water is getting in.

The result

The result is clear for all to see. No collection of water in sight and the rain shower bounces off the cowl as explained. The Mini Eurocowl also comes with a 10 year guarantee. Not forgetting that all of our cowls have been tested and certified to BSEN 16475-7:2016.

Alongside our previous blog The First Line of Defence we hope these videos aid you in the education of your customers. 

Remember to talk to your Account Manager about the other point of sale material available to you as well.
