This special grate is intended to fit smaller Rumford fireplaces. It is specifically designed to fit the common 36" wide Rumford fireplace with the following firebox measurements: 12" across the back wall, 36" across the front opening, measuring 12" in depth at the floor, and having an opening height of about 36". Of course, this grate can be used in fireplaces with slightly different dimensions too.
The total depth of the grate at the base is 15" measured from the rear of the grate to the tip of the center leg. The long center leg is essential for positive grate stability. This usually does not cause a problem with extra shallow fireboxes as long as the hearth in front of the firebox is the same height; allowing the center leg a level surface to rest on. Custom leg modifications are available if there is a raised obstruction that the center leg needs to clear such as an ash dump hatch. Call us at 1-800-274-7364 before ordering if leg modifications are required.
19" Tall, 27½" Front width, 12" Rear width, 15" Deep. Approximate shipping weight in the box is 47 lbs. Constructed from 3/4" steel bar.
