Hi, Welcome to, I am glad you are here! My name is Eric & I will endeavor to answer your question.


Warnock Hersey was bought by Lennox who retained the Superior model line.


Here is a link to where you may download the technical installation specifications for your Superior BR-36-2 insert.


The dimensions you seek are in a diagram at the bottom left of page one.
