Fireplace #28: Rectangle center-pivot butterfly damper

These high-up  center pivot rectangular dampers are not very common, and are usually on the two-sided fireplaces that have large fireboxes. Here are some of their characteristics:

  • The damper is set over 2 feet above the firebox.
  • The rectangular damper is almost as wide as it is long.
  • There is rigid damper hardware below the damper to actuate the opening of the door.
  • The smoke chamber narrows to a flue tile above the damper.

These fireplaces usually require a large square or rectangle custom made Flueblocker that is installed right above the firebox, and below the damper hardware.
