The FAMCO WDC 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 - WDC - 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 Galvanized steel.
The FAMCO WDC 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 WDC Wind Directional Chimney Cap is manufactured by Famco in the United States and comes with a 1-year warranty against product defects and workmanship. If you have any questions about this product, please refer to the FAQs above or feel free to contact us by phone or email.
i was forced to run my stove pipe up on a steep part of a gambrel roof. when winds would come from the north, I would get MASSIVE downdrafts. After installing this chimney cap, the drafts were GREATLY minimized and i'm able to have wood burning fires on any day, regardless of the wind direction. Truly a great product and great value.
Been using the wind directional chimney cap for a few years now, will never use anything else as this does well. Great staff, products, will always come online to get our contractors supplies at Famco. Would definitely recommend
