The Butterfly damper has been so popular that it has been made into a cap-damper so you could have a choice. Now you have, in addition to the Butterfly top sealing damper, the Butterfly Cap-Damper, a single flue, stand-alone cap-damper. Just like the Butterfly damper, the Butterfly Cap-Damper gives you access to the chimney with the removal of a couple of wing nuts. Because of it's design, the Butterfly Cap-Damper installs on either a chimney with a flue tile (liner) sticking up or one that does not have a tile above the crown. Just glue it on with the silicone that comes with it!!! LIFETIME GUARANTEE
With energy cost skyrocketing, you can no longer afford the leaky throat damper with metal-to-metal contact that now lives in your fireplace.
You need a Lyemance Top-Sealing Damper with its silicone rubber seal.
That's right, Warped, broken or leaky dampers cost homeowners hundreds of dollars a year - and that figure is going nowhere but up. Independent laboratory test show the Lyemance Top-Sealing Damper eliminates as much as 90% of the air loss of a traditional damper.
Lyemance Dampers mount easily atop a flue tile with silicone sealant (included); a 32' stainless cable (also included) drops down the flue and mounts in the firebox. The Power Lever is an important feature of this product. A firm tug on the cable drives a piston upward, applying a whopping 143 pounds of leverage, so the damper always opens easily. Instructions, hardware, and silicone sealant are included.
Lyemance Dampers come in eight popular sizes. Consult the price list below for sizes and full dimensions of flues they cover. 40' and 50" cables, a 4" cable shield and packets of extra hardware are available.
Note: We don't recommend using top-sealing dampers with gas logs - failure to open could cause carbon monoxide to back up into the house. Also, it's hard to adjust the dampers to leave the 1" opening required when logs aren't being used. In case of a gas leak, gas could be trapped in the flue, resulting in an explosion.
The "OPC" (Original Plus Cap) is a super unit that gives you all the energy-saving benefits of an original Lyemance Damper and a chimney cap.
The cast-aluminum "OPC" has 3/4" aluminum mesh and is available in three sizes as shown below.
It features a lifetime warranty and comes complete with a 32' cable, the Power Lever, all necessary installation hardware, and a tube of sealant to bond it to the flue tile. 40' and 50' cables, a 4' cable shield (slips over cable and place where it rubs), and packets of extra damper mounting hardware are also available.
Lock-Top II combines the energy-saving features of the Lock-Top Damper with a special, stainless steel Gelco Chimney Cap. The Lock-Top II comes fully assembled. The base mounts to the included sweep's ring which attaches to the flue tile with silicone sealant (included). A 30' stainless steel cable and 4' cable shields are also available , must be ordered separately.
All Lock-Top II Cap/Dampers have an overall height of 11 3/8".
The Lock-Top II has a lifetime warranty and is available in 3/4" and 5/8" mesh - make selection below for available sizes.
The Chim-A-Lator Damper Cap is operated by a convenient Lever installed on the side wall of the fireplace (see photo on right). The lever has six positions to help control the amount of draft. That means more heat when the fireplace is in use.
The Chim-A-Lator Cap mounts directly to the flue tile and therefore requires that the flue tile extends at least 1 1/4" above the crown.
The Chim-A-Lator is 11" from base to lid and comes equipped with a 30' cable. A 50" cable is also available. Comes with a 7' cable shield to protect the cable at rub points in the chimney. Comes with a lifetime warranty.
Now you can open Lock-Top or Lyemance Dampers with even more ease. This handle mounts to the wall of the firebox.
A lightweight extension slips over the handle and the damper opens with minimal effort.
Low priced. Hardware included.
The Lock-Top has a stainless steel lid attached to a cast-aluminum frame by an array of stainless spring wires. It comes with a 30' cable that is dropped down a handle mounted in the firebox. Just a tug on the handle will open or tightly close the Lock-Top.
It comes with a Chimney Fire Safety Device that locks the damper open in case of a chimney fire.
The Lock-Top is our most popular damper and has a lifetime warranty.
