English: A cowl is a usually hood-shaped covering used to increase the draft of a chimney and prevent backflow. The cowl, usually made of galvanized iron, is fitted to the chimney pot to prevent wind blowing the smoke back down into the room beneath. No doubt named for the resemblance of many designs to the cowl garment worn by monks, they have been in use for centuries.
Nederlands: Een gek is een draaibare kap op een schoorsteen, door middel van een windvaan op de kap richt deze zich op de wind, en wel zodanig dat de rook aan de open kant ongehinderd kan verdwijnen.
