The Renaissance Rumford™ model was the world’s first certified open-door clean-burning fireplace. The design is taken from a true Rumford fireplace, making it much taller than a traditional fireplace. The shape of a Rumford fireplace is renowned for an unparalleled level of performance. Our patented Rumford design has taken the traditional elements of a Rumford fireplace to the next level thanks to custom engineering, precision manufacturing, and quality materials.
The Rumford Advantage
True Rumford fireplaces have a very specific shape. Features include a shallow firebox, angled sides, and a curved throat. The curved throat section of the Rumford model creates laminar airflow into the chimney flue and reduces air turbulence in the firebox. The results are a strong draft, easy lighting, and no smoke in the home.
Fire Unlike any Other
The fire in a Renaissance Rumford fireplace lights faster and burns brighter than a traditional masonry fireplace.
Renaissance Fireplaces has brought open fireplaces into the 21st century, thanks to decorative fireplaces with emissions so low that there is no visible smoke within two minutes of lighting the fire.
The firebox of the RL50 is designed to optimize a wide horizontal fire. The base is designed to allow airflow around your wood regardless of where it is placed. You’ll have a consistently beautiful fire time after time.
