I have a Majestic MBU 36 and this product looks like it will fit. What do you think
Asked by: Joe
I would think these panels are large enough height and width wise to be cut to fit a 36" domestic "Zero Clearance" firebox, including a Majestic. The literature offered on the Home Depot website covering installation does not show the dimensions of the rear refractory piece. For whatever reason, only the drawing of the side panel is offered to review. The side panels are shaped with quite a bit extra height on the front edge, particularly from what I was replacing, and is deeper too, so I knew I was going to tailor the panels sized to my needs. I expect you would be able to do the same. The rear panel is wide enough to allow about an inch and a half or more to be cut off too, which is good, because all the manufactured miter angles are reversed to any fire box condition I can think is out there. Please read my description of the product before ordering to make sure you want to do the modifications as well as issues with durability I found.

Asked by: Roady
These refractory panels are made to accommodate gas line but will work with firewood fires by not "knocking" out the gas line hole on the side panels.

If you are qualified with the right tools, the results of your work will make your "Zero Clearance Fireplace" look fantastic. There is a lot to impress: Packaging is unbelievable; each panel arrives packed so securely that it would be hard to break one in shipping; If you cut and install the panels well, your fireplace looks like a very expensive unit. There are some questions, however. The castings are beautiful on the exposed side but are sloppily made as viewed by the back side. Why doesn't the manufacturer screed the mortar smooth and flat on the back side which must sit against the steel fire box? The irregularities on the rear of the panels, between multiple high and lows, could jeopardize the life of the panels. In addition, the casting irregularities leave unattractive gaps at the exposed edges facing the fireplace opening. To make my installation look good, I had to use fireplace mortar from my local Fireplace/Grill company to fill the gaps to a smooth reveal on both sides. I used the grout at the small gaps where the refractory walls meet the rear since the panels all had to be cut to fit my fire box, mitered to the angles and size or my "Heatilator" fireplace. The cutting that was necessary of the panels to fit my specific fireplace called for some skill that many folks may not have as any mistake could ruin the panel being cut. I bought a 7.5 inch diamond blade for my circular saw to do the work necessary to cut the side panels to fit properly. The panels cut easily enough, but careful measuring of the old refractory panels was required to get the angles right for the cuts. Fortunately, the size of all the EmberGlow panels allowed the panels to be cut for my particular fireplace or any other 36" fire box. The casting irregularities on the back sides did challenge the saw running against the back sides to cut a nice edge on the faces of the new refractory panels. BTW, the Emberglow panels come with angled edges but the angles are reverse of what is needed to fit any fireplace I can think of, so it is a good thing the panels are over sized. The extra height of the new panels allowed for a more customized installation than the panels that I was replacing. My old refractory height ended at the bottom of a steel fire shield at the front of the fireplace that comes down about 4 inches from the top of the opening and then is bent about 45 degrees inward and extends about six inches into the fireplace. I decided to cut the new refractory side panels to go around the fire shield to utilized the higher front edges designed into the Emberglow panels. The results look great, but it made removing the shield necessary to install the panels and the extra cutting precision and labor was probably not worth the effort. Buyers should be informed that the casting mortar used by Emberglow is painted with a non durable paint which when installed looks great, but the heat of the fires causes the paint to flake off in areas exposed to flames, revealing the orange-brown mortar behind the paint by the third fire. In addition, I have a diagonal crack formed in the rear refractory panel which scares me as to how long these panels will last with the number of fires I will have over the winter here in Northern New Mexico. I have "my fingers crossed" that all the effort to get the Herringbone, firebrick colored refractory will not turn into a waste of time and money. My fireplace is 18 years old and getting Heatilator replacement refractory panels may be impossible, which made me delighted to find Home Depot's Emberglow panels, particularly for the money offered.
