FireRock Rumford Fireplace Indoor Rumford Fireplace

The Rumford design has been around for centuries and is a classic hallmark of Victorian architecture. Characterized by a straight back wall and a taller opening, the Rumford can support larger fires than other fireplace models. By incorporating a radius lintel and larger chimney opening, the FireRock Rumford offers the elegance of a Victorian fireplace without the draw problems that plagued the fireplaces of the 1800s. This style of fireplace is ideal for homes with high ceilings in order to provide a more to-scale, dramatic look. The Rumford model accommodates FireRock masonry or a UL 103 metal chimney system. A variety of firebrick patterns are available to complete your FireRock Rumford Fireplace.

  • Available sizes: 30", 36", 42" and 48"
  • Taller opening with straight-back wall
  • Compliances: Tested and listed under UL-127 and ANSI 221.50, and are further supported by ICC ESR-2599

Outdoor Use

As with all our indoor models, our Rumford fireplace can be used outdoors. Please note: wind will impact smoke draw performance given the increased size of the firebox opening. All fireplaces should be installed according to ICC Report and Installation Manual instructions. Always be sure to check and follow local building codes.
