The Windkat Story

The quest for Coziness, Hygge, Gemütlichkeit!

It was the desire for warmth, evenings round the fire with friends and good cheer that led Klaus to invent the Windkat Chimney Cowl. Too many evenings had been ruined with a smoking fireplace at the mercy of the weather. Having tried all the existing solutions on the market without success, there was nothing left for Klaus to do - he must invent a better performing and more reliable product.

With the use of aeronautic wind tunnel laboratories at several German Universities, Klaus and his team of Bavarian engineers spent two years developing the prototype chimney cowl.

Finally, after rigorous testing from the extreme conditions of the high Alps to the windswept coastal lowlands of the Canary islands, Windkat proved itself to be Europe’s most reliable and versatile chimney cowl. Hundreds of thousands of units have now been sold to happy customers worldwide.

So, if like Klaus you desire your fireplace or stove to provide reliable warmth and coziness throughout the winter, regardless of the weather outside, install a Windkat cowl and let the cozy evenings begin!


At Windkat Cowls Ltd, we are delighted to be selling and distributing Windkat in the UK. Working closely with Klaus and the manufacturers in Germany our objective is to improve the lives of stove and fireplace owners by reliably curing draw problems and improving the efficiency of flue systems. 

There are more than 100,000 Windkats installed across Europe and counting!
