The "snout" is to penetrate the space where the facing brick or veneer stone is, and still allow the door assembly to join directly to the JUCA unit body. We didn't want to allow any chance that a spark could ever get up behind the facing materials. (See the side view above to better understand the concept of our snout).
The 4" normal dimension of it allows enough space for you to use normal house facebrick to cover over the body of the JUCA, leaving only the opening inside the snout clear.
Whether you use facebrick or veneer stone, the materials are NOT attached to the body of the JUCA. Facebrick would be mortared up as a curtain wall. (With a normal angle-iron lintel bar above the opening to support the weight. Veneer brick is mounted onto a backing panel of cement board. That cement board would ONLY be attached to the JUCA at the outer end of the snout. Often a small piece of light angle iron would mount the cement board so that its front surface is say 1/2" recessed from the outermost edge of the snout. Then, when the 1/2" thick veneer brick is mounted on it, the final brick front surface would wind up flush with the outer edge of the snout. This makes it so that when the door assembly is mounted, it will overlap the brickwork a little bit and still butt right up against the edge of the snout.
Note that with veneer facing, there is a hollow space between the main body of the JUCA and the cenment board facing.
Note also that there is a lot of flexibility in the final appearance. It would be possible to arrange the door set to be recessed into the brickwork. Or made flush with it.
