Mantel Ordering Process:
First, we need measurements of your room and firebox. Use the printable Fireplace Mantel Measurement form to gather the information at your site. This information will also help your sales representative estimate any special requirements. You may also enter your measurements in our online worksheet and submit or print a copy of the worksheet, and fax a completed form to (727) 230-6956. We may contact you if any additional information is needed.
Measuring Your Firebox
- The firebox is very essential as it will dictate the final aesthetic look of your entire fireplace. We recommend as large of an opening as possible. We don’t have a preference on fireboxes as we can work with any firebox you have or prefer.
- When measuring the opening, it is necessary to allow for any vent, louvers or doors that need to remain exposed. Please check your specifications for clearance needed to remove and reinstall the glass door assemblies.
- The flush masonry, or metal wood-burning firebox will be best as they allow you the greatest amount of flexibility and accommodate decorative, arched filler panels.
- When using metal boxes, it is crucial that you note how much of the metal you wish to have covered or exposed. Always be careful to allow for the space needed to remove and replace the
- With a custom filler panel, we can allow for arches in louvered metal boxes. A template must be provided to match your doors, so we can size them correctly.
- Raised fireboxes are often preferred and can be accommodated by our raised panels and hearth options.
