The entire firebox and throat are lined with Skamol, a material which is durable at the highest temperatures achieved in the Renaissance. It is widely used as a wood stove firebox liner used by over 80 manufacturers worldwide and has been produced for close to 25 years. Extensive testing in our laboratory has indicated that not only will it withstand high temperatures, but it will retain its shape and appearance when used on a daily basis.

Heavy-Duty Steel Construction
A typical pre-fabricated wood burning fireplace weighs less than 200 pounds, often closer to 100. Most of the Renaissance’s weight (approx. 750 lbs.) comes from heavy steel construction. With 20 years of experience fabricating clean-burning, built-in stoves we know how they are used and abused in the field. We built the Renaissance the same way we build RSF Fireplaces, so they can be used on a daily basis and last as long as your house.

The Chimney
The Renaissance uses only Model RIS chimney which is listed to UL 103HT, the UL Standard for chimneys capable of withstanding repeated chimney fires.
