Re: Orton Rumford Dimensions


That's a straight back, but the numbers will work.

Vestal used to make a shallow or short throat damper I like to use, my brick yard has like 10 of them still lol, and I'm the only one who uses em.

In the art of the fireplace book I have, it's about the Orton, the top of the fireplace should be a min of 12" above the lintel or arch.

If you are providing an air source vestal has an air intake I like, as it goes in the side wall. I got away from airalators.

He's talking about an Orton. Different throat profile and deeper box with a slant. Francis was the guy who knew about those. Haven't seen him for a while. Think there's a book from the 70s on Orton Rumfords though.

Wheathe a strait back or Orton the angles are still the same. Difference is the lean means no curved thing a ma bob. You gain your 8" above the damper.

By me,you'd have to provide an outside air source,the code mandates it.
