*Please note this is a genuine Colt Top made by Colt Cowls. There are a number of lookalike/ copy products on the market which are inferior in quality and have not undergone the rigorous testing this product has*

  • Suitable for all fuels (removing birdguard for solid fuels is recommended, due to the mesh being gas certified)
  • Static anti downdraught cowl in aluminium and powder coated in terracotta. All strap fixings and birdguard are stainless steel as well as standard hook bolts also made from stainless steel.
  • Tested and certified under new regulation BSEN 16475-7:2016 and BSEN-1856-1:2003

lt Tops work on the same principle as Colt Cowls but are more efficient as their rounded shape creates lift whichever direction the wind is blowing, eliminating downdraught. Rain drains help divert water outside the chimney pot. Colt Tops are available in Gas, All Purpose, and Trade models. The Colt Top All Purpose (brown) is the same as the Colt Top Gas (aluminium), but additionally has a painted finish which is highly resistant to corrosive fuels such as Coalite, Furnacite and Anthracite. It is suitable for all fuels, although as the mesh is gas certified, it is recommened that this is removed when this product is usedon solid fuel fires.

Fantastic service. Our house is in an impossible location. We still have to turn the AGA off in an east wind. Our fault, NOT yours!
