The FAMCO WDCS Wind Directional Chimney Cap is designed to be most effective. The FAMCO research team has proven that the most effective draft inducing chimney caps are those that separate the wind stream as it flows over the cap and those that rotate to align with the wind direction. The Wind Directional Chimney Cap – WDCSS – does both to provide maximum drafting. In usage, 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 in 26 gauge Stainless steel. The FAMCO WDCS Wind Directional Chimney Cap is engineered to slip around the O/D (outside diameter) of a single wall pipe and with the help of an adapter (WCASS) fit inside an insulated, double or triple wall pipe. Comes in a range of diameters from 5″ to 14″ with heights ranging from 14½ inch to 27 inch respectively. The FAMCO WDCS Wind Directional Chimney Cap is manufactured by Famco in the United States and comes with a 1-year warranty against product defects and workmanship.

    Excellent quality, works great!

    This is the second cap we’ve purchased, both from Famco, as we have 2 wood stove inserts, in our home (plus another in our garage/shop). The first works great! We were having issues with smoke being blown back down, behind the insert, which would then enter our living room. This would happen in high winds, blowing across the flat, open chimney. This cap also creates a much better draft, so our fires are started way more easily. We couldn’t even start a fire if it was breezy outside (before). And the better draft helps in the summer, too. No more ‘smell’, it’s so nice!

    I expect this one will work the same, for our other fireplace!

    Shopped for another wind directed chimney cap since the last one worked so well. We were very happy to shop and find another cap at Famco. Delivered to our home, I’ll review and order an adapter from Famco.
    Great products, great service, great Company.

    Easy to install and works great! Just make sure you have good stainless steel mounting screws to secure as they are not provided.

    well designed and made

    These caps are the best thing ever. Our wood burning stoves have never functioned so well. They burn hotter and faster with almost no back drafting. If I had know that a wind cap made that much difference I would have put them on my chimneys years ago.

    Although we have not yet determined it’s effectiveness in the gulf shore winds, we are pleased with the ordering and shipping process. The quality of construction exceeded our expectations. Thanks.
