Type l-Open One Side
For most fireplaces of this type, Majestic's cast or steel throat dampers
will serve efficiently. However, in cases of unusually high or deep fireboxes,
or to avoid slanting a flue, the Majestic Universal Smoke
Dome Damper provides the best answer. The tables on these pages are based
on a chimney height of 20', measured from hearth to top of flue. Reduce
opening heights 1" for each 2' drop in chimney height.
Type 2-0pen One Side And One End
By far the most common and most popular of the modern, specialized fireplaces, the corner fireplace is one for which the Majestic Smoke Dome Damper is ideally suited. Requires one post support on the projecting corner.
Type 3-Open 2 Sides-Ends Closed
Often used to provide a living room fireplace and a kitchen barbecue grille in combination, this type of fireplace is rapidly increasing in popularity in the modern, ranch-style homes.
Type 4-0pen One Side And Both Ends
Generally constructed centered on one wall or diagonally across a corner, the opening height or the frontal width for this type of fireplace may be increased by recessing the sides into the wall.
Type 5-Open Both Sides And One End
This type of fireplace is often used as a divider between two rooms, such as a living room and dining area. As in Type 4, a proportion ate increase in the opening height may be made by extending one or both side walls, giving the effect of recessing the fireplace.
Type 6-0pen Both Sides And Both Ends
Although the most primitive type of fireplace, this is also the most "modem" and striking in appearance, and is now easy to construct using the Majestic Universal Smoke Dome Damper. Models D-26-S and D-33-S afford two sizes for round or square hearths, and there are five additional sizes for rectangular hearths.
