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

The 30" wide Rumford is one of the most efficient sizes and is a good size for bedrooms, libraries and living rooms with 150 to 300 square feet of floor space. Even in a bigger room, the 30" Rumford is a cosy fireplace you can warm up to with a good book.

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 30" 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 and decorative clay chimney pots.
