Renaissance Rumford 1500




Rumford 1500


This is big enough for any room.


Our is the biggest of the big. With nearly 1500 square inches of high quality ceramic glass, there is no other manufactured fireplace on the market that can compare. The 1500 includes all of the amazing features of the Rumford 1000 like our guillotine door, and screen, as well as our specialty refractory panels (see Rumford 1000),


Despite its size, the guillotine door moves with the touch of a single finger. Burning with the screen down allows you to enjoy the crackle and pop of the fire without having to worry about sparks. Alternatively, closing the door prevents warm room air from being lost up the chimney and increases efficiency. The shape of the firebox creates a taller fire and reflects more heat into the room than a traditional fireplace.


The Renaissance 1500 is an excellent alternative to a traditional open hearth fireplace. It has the size and appearance of a stone hearth, but the added benefit of an air tight door, tons of heat and reduced emissions. If you’re considering building a fireplace made of masonry, make sure you consider the benefits of the Renaissance 1500 before deciding.

    1. Note 1: It is possible to overfire the Renaissance Rumford. The suggested maximum load size is 3 logs that are 6″ in diameter and 20″ in length. A larger wood load can fit, but the amount of heat crated can damage the Skamol panels over time.


    1. Note 2: These fireplaces have an access panel to accept an aftermarket gas log assembly. You may not install a gas lighter in any Renaissance fireplace because the high firebox temperatures will burn out the log lighter very quickly.
