Optional matching surround facing, hearths, and overmantels are available for this stone mantel in sized to fit your situation.

Selecting the right size of your Classic Cast Stone Mantel is a simple process. Each mantel in this series has a few dimensions that can change within a range (see the dimension table for each mantel). Surround facing is also made to fit your firebox opening size and location from the floor. This flexibility means that, in most cases, you may choose the exact size that best fits your situation.

This is the area between the legs of the mantel. To determine, start by figuring the actual firebox opening width (see Fig. A, ) by measuring the opening from side to side (don"t include any metal flange that you want to cover up). Once you have this measurement, decide how much surround facing that you would like to show between the legs of your mantel and the firebox opening width. A good rule of thumb is 6 - 8".
|Your Mantel Opening Width "C"||=||firebox opening width||+||facing on each side||If you choose to show 6" on each side, this will be 12"|
This is the height of the inside of each mantel leg. To determine, start by figuring the actual firebox opening height (see Fig. A, ) by measuring the opening from top to bottom (include vents if applicable, but not any metal flange that you want to cover up). If your firebox opening is above the floor or desired hearth height, add this measurement to your firebox opening height. Once you have this measurement, decide how much surround facing that would like to show above your firebox opening. A good rule of thumb is 1 to 2 times what your showing on each side of the firebox opening.
|Your Mantel Opening Height "B"||=||firebox opening height||+||height from floor||+||facing|
Each mantel has a dimensional chart that gives you dimensions for other mantel parts and the math to figure what your Opening Width "C" and Opening Height "B" choices will mean for the Overall Mantel Width and Overall Mantel Height. Be sure to check these to insure that you have enough room on your wall, free of obstacles like windows, doors and light switches.

Installation of our Classic Stone Mantels is relatively simple for both remodel and new building applications. The mantel material is fairly lightweight which makes preparation and installation easier and much less costly than solid stone mantels. Each Classic Stone Mantel is fire resistant and allows for zero clearance from combustible material (no space required between firebox and mantel*), making it the perfect choice for gas or wood fireplaces.
Mantels can be installed with construction adhesive and a few screws. If cutting is required, a circular saw with a masonry diamond blade (found at any home center) will work. We include a repair/filler kit to fill in screw holes, seams or to repair a chip.
