About This Product

The DuraVent DuraPlus Round Chimney Cap is designed to stay cool on the outside, provide a hot draft on the inside, boost stove efficiency and has a fire-safe design that protects both the chimney and the building. This triple-wall chimney cap protects against dangerous sparks, helps prevent rain from entering the chimney and features two insulating layers consisting of a ceramic blanket plus air space. The ceramic blanket insulation is held securely in position, eliminating hot spots common with loose-fill type insulations. In the event of a creosote fire, the compressible blanket insulation permits the chimney liner to expand outwardly in a radial direction. Designed for normal, continuous operation at 1000°F flue gas temperatures, DuraPlus is subjected to rigorous and stringent HT requirements of the UL standard, including 1-hour at 1400°F, plus three 10-minute chimney fire tests at 2100°F. Required where chimney pipe terminates above the roof line, this cap comes with a spark arrestor screen and has removable screws for easy cleaning.

Q:is the cap stainless or galvanize one part of the information it says it is stainless then its galvanize which is it
by|Apr 3, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  This is stainless steel. Any part of the system that will come into contact with the flue gases (inside of pipe lengths, inside of tee, inside of elbows & the chimney cap) will be stainless steel. The DuraPlus is a triple wall chimney that will always have an inner liner of stainless, but has the option of stainless or galvanized steel for the outer casing. Depending on the specifics, it's possible both stainless and galvanized have been used in the overall description.

    A:  Just press the Vertical Cap down onto the upper most length of DuraPlus Chimney. It will snap into place. There are 4 screws that can be removed to allow cleaning of the Chimney, Cap and Spark Arrestor.

        Q:I installed this cap on triple wall and it seems to leave a gap for the inside wall is that correct? It protects it from the rain but I don’t get where I’m supposed to put the screws in it or does it just slide on?

        Answer This Question

        A:  It just slides into the 6" diameter DuraPlus chimney.

          Q:I bought the 6 inch double wall DuraVent piping, but the chimney cap is 2 inches bigger than the 6 inch pipe, is that how it all fits or do I have the wrong cap
          by|Oct 9, 2023
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  When you say DuraVent double wall, do you mean DVL stove pipe? If so, that cannot be used outside and cannot have a cap used on it. The cap you have pictured here is a DuraPlus triple wall chimney cap and must be used on the DuraPlus triple wall class A chimney system, which must be used outside.

            Works just like it said it would!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This DuraVent, DuraPlus 6” chimney cap works great. Our fireplace seems more efficient warming the whole level. I really like the cap keeps rain and other things out of the chimney. This chimney cap filled our needs perfectly.

              Works great Easy Install
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The DuraVent DuraPlus 6DP-VC 6 Inch Stainless Steel Round Chimney Cap works great and was very easy to install. Fits all 6 inch round chimney pipes. Dimensions: H 7 in, W 15 in, D 15 in made of quality stainless steel 30 gauge made in USA. I found the cap super easy to install and secure. Features: Rain cap prevents rain from entering, wire grate prevents animals from entering and most important protects against dangerous sparks and features two insulating layers consisting of a ceramic blanket plus air space. The triple-wall chimney cap includes ceramic blanket insulation that's held securely in position, eliminating hot spots common with loose-fill type insulation. In the event of a creosote fire, the chimney cap compressible blanket insulation permits the chimney liner to expand outwardly in a radial direction. I would highly recommend. The item description was just as described and I would buy it again.

                This is a replacement for an existing cap. It is the same product as is being replaced. The original cap lasted 22 years. Very happy with it. Since I'm getting the house reroofed, I thought it was a good time to replace the cap. The original cap had some wear, and it survived at least 5 hurricanes, which one in 2004 blew it off the chimney. Very happy I could get the same product for replacement. I've got the DuraVent chimney onto which this cap fits, and have been very happy with the product. The attached picture shows the installed Chimney Cap!

                Replaces same model. Not crazy about the rivets holding the cap on. I bought this one because the previous one's rivets popped and the straps bent out of shape. Hope this one lasts a bit longer.

                Stopped up
                No problem with fit but after a couple months the screen stopped completely up. filled my house with smoke. This was a new chimney install would not purchase again.

                  Works as it is supposed to
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So far I've had this chimney cap on my vent for over two months and so far it has been working out pretty good. Used to hear a consistent drip each time it rained, but with this new cap I'm not having the same issues. Was pretty easy and self explanatory on how to install. So far so good.
