    The Duro-Shield 16 in. x 16 in. Aluminum Band-Around Brick Single Flue Chimney Cover is proof that you don't have to sacrifice any quality by choosing a remarkably well-priced item. Aluminum chimney caps are sturdy, lightweight, and more affordable that caps constructed out of other metals such as copper or stainless steel.

    This chimney caps hood is constructed of solid 18 gauge diamond-embossed aluminum. There is a 16 gauge expanded aluminum mesh to help prevent birds and other critters from getting inside the chimney and causing costly damage. The extruded aluminum braces provide plenty of support, and the stainless steel nuts and bolts help ensure a firm, secure chimney mount.

    Chimney covers are not always made alike. You want quality and performance above all. When you combine maximum function with the best price available, though, there is no better choice than the Duro-Shield 16 in. x 16 in. Aluminum Band-Around Brick Single Flue Chimney Cover.

    The wire mesh is not adjustable. It appears as shown in the image. The item needs to be fully assembled. The mesh sides need to be wired together along each side.

    Can I place this chimney cover on an oil burning chimney?
    1 Answer
    So long as the outside dimension is no greater than 17 1/2 in. x 17 1/2 in., this cover will work. Furthermore, this cap is ideal as aluminum will typically offer greater resistance to the corrosive gases from oil and coal burning appliances.

    October 17, 2014
    Will this chimney cover work on an oil fuel furnace?
    1 Answer
    It will indeed. These aluminum caps offer good resistance to the caustic flue gases of both coal burning and oil burning appliances.

    September 3, 2012
    What is the height of this chimney cover from the band to the top of the cover?
    1 Answer
    Per the manufacturer, the height of the cap is approximately 8", with a screen mesh height of 6". To ensure good draft from your chimney, it is not recommended to install this cap on a chimney that has a flue tile protruding more than 2".
