Product Details:

The WeatherShield Chimney Cap is a unique alternative to the traditional chimney cap. For use with solid pack Class A, masonry, or single wall chimneys to keep the rain, snow, leaves and animals out, but keeps sparks in. Moreover, its 304 stainless steel construction assures superior corrosion resistance to weather and the hostile flue gas environment. Despite adverse weather, the WeatherShield will not rust.

Surprisingly, it's difficult to find the manufacturer of the previous, original chimney cap. This universal, premier after-market chimney cap protects the chimney from inclement weather and keeps out debris & animals. The cap features a 4" extension on the bottom of the chimney cap which gets inserted INTO the inner pipe of the chimney pipe or clay flue. Therefore, cap sizes are based on the inner pipe diameter.

Options for Your WeatherShield Chimney Cap

To begin with, an added feature is the removable mesh screen that provides a measure of safety by helping to contain sparks. Available in 1" (standard) or 1/2" mesh. Additionally, these are 100% stainless steel construction to ensure a long life and rust-free performance.

Optional StormShield: Convert your WeatherShield into a StormShield to keep out hard driving rains. This simply replaces the lid on your WeatherShield chimney cap. Above all, this makes it an easy install and is removable for quick inspection and cleaning. Moreover, wind-induced downdraft can cause smoke to enter the living space and the StormShield will help reduce the effects.

Additionally, custom sizes are available up to 48".

You can also adapter your WeatherShield chimney cap to any standard masonry flue using this adapter.

    Sizing and Measuring:

    To begin with, these are the items you will want to measure for your new WeatherShield Chimney Cap.

    • Measure the inside pipe diameter
    • Measure the outside pipe diameter

    Firstly, check the sizing chart below to identify the inside pipe measurement. Secondly, check the lid size diameter to verify the lid size will accommodate the outside diameter of the pipe. Most often, the outside diameter / lid size is not an issue for this installation, but always worth double checking.

    Inside Flue Diameter Lid Size Diameter
    3" 8"
    4" 8"
    5" 13"
    6" 13"
    7" 13"
    8" 13"
    9" 16"
    10" 16"
    11" 19"
    12" 19"

    CHIMNEY TYPES: Single wall, solid pack, insulated, Class A, B vent, and square or rectangular masonry chimneys using Masonry Adapter.



    WeatherShield® helps maintain a chimney's optimum performance by keeping out:

    Installation Instructions:

    Step 1: Assembling the WeatherShield. Move hoop upwards to vertical position and remove wing nut. Center the screen on the bottom plate. Position the top plate so screw at top of hoop passes through center hole of top plate. Secure with the wing nut as shown.

    Step 2: Fitting the WeatherShield inside the flue. WeatherShield chimney caps spring fit inside the round metal or masonry flue. Squeeze the bottom of the WeatherShield and push down into the flue to assure snug fit.

    Step 3: Applying a Watertight Seal. Apply a thin layer of chimney silicone caulking to seal joint between WeatherShield and top of chimney. The chimney silicone is an optional add-on for this product.

    Step 4: Final Positioning of the WeatherShield. Push the WeatherShield chimney cap down firmly into the chimney section to make sure final connection is tight and secure. If you are installing on rectangle or square flues, please visit the masonry adapter page.
