The Chimney Umbrella has been designed to overcome all the existing problems that may occur when inserting a chimney balloon or any other chimney draught excluder into your chimney flue.The CHIMELLA has been designed to be used quickly and efficiently in only a few seconds. Unlike the chimney balloon which will take a lot of effort and time to insert and blow up.
Once inserted The Chimney Umbrella will not deflate or fall out of your chimney after time and drop debris all over the fire.
The Chimney Umbrella collects all dirt safely and efficiently into its canopy and so prevents any mess when removing from the chimney, unlike the chimney balloon or chimney sheep, which can be a messy job.
The chimney needs to be completely cooled before you can insert a chimney balloon or it will burst. The Chimney Umbrella can withstand heat temperature of over 100 degrees and so there is very little chance that within 20 minutes of a fire going out that there will be any heat damage to the CHIMELLA.
Unique to CHIMELLA is its efficient draught proof, but breathable, canopy which will prevent any water which may come down the chimney from causing damp. It allows the water to dry quickly preventing nasty damp smells and internal damage to your chimney lining.
No. It’s easy! The CHIMELLA has been designed for maximum efficiency with as little effort as possible.
The CHIMELLA is the only device on the market that is designed to be flexible to fit round, square, rectangular and triangular flues at a wide variety of sizes, vastly reducing the chance of buying the wrong chimella for your flue.
If you have forgotten to remove your CHIMELLA and light your fire the heat from the fire will burn away the canopy. This is an added safety feature that will open up the airflow into the chimney and prevent harmful fumes entering the room.
Your Chimney needs to have a very slight airflow to prevent damp.
The Chimney Umbrella is designed to give a good fit while still allowing small gaps for the air to trickle through to prevent damp.
