Additional materials, such as brick, block, concrete and mortar will be needed.

The 42" wide Rumford is a big fireplace suitable for large living areas, especially ones with high ceilings. The 42" height and widely flared covings of the Rumford make it look much bigger than other 42" wide fireplaces.

Superior Clay Corporation manufactures many different throats, smoke chambers and clay flue liners for Rumford fireplaces as well as Standard masonry fireplaces. Custom sizes and design help available.

The 42" Certified Rumford, however, is carefully controlled. You can change the color of the firebrick or use either a masonry or metal chimney but the size of the firebox and the components that may affect emissions must be built as specified in the Manual. You must use the components listed above including the Frisch Air System and the Certified Doors provided.

Call or write for more information about herringbone fireboxes, terra cotta mantels and decorative clay chimney pots.
