Rumford Fireplace Components
Rumford fireplaces are tall and shallow to reflect more heat.
They have streamlined throats to eliminate turbulence and carry away the smoke with little loss of heated room air.
Rumford fireplace parts are generally appreciated for their tall classic elegance and their heating efficiency.
Outdoor Rumford Fireplaces generally do not use a damper.
Rumford fireplaces feature an old world-style tall opening that encloses a shallow inner firebox with a straight back wall and low angle flared side walls. This time honored (and somewhat forgotten) design combination directs more radiant energy (heat) outward into a room making a Rumford Fireplace more efficient than a typical deep, short opening firebox that has become the standard installation over the last 40 years. Rumford fireplace kits from Fireside Chimney Supply, contain the main interior components from which to construct a Rumford-style masonry fireplace. These prefabricated Rumford fireplace parts are made from quality refractory materials designed to withstand the harsh environment generated in wood burning fireplaces.
