The Renaissance Rumford 1500 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 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.
The 1500 includes all of the amazing features of the Rumford 1000 like our guillotine door, and screen. The Rumford 1500 comes standard with the high performance Vermiculite Panels. 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.
