Fireplace Grate Buying Guide
Fireplace grates give you a more efficient fire, allowing air to flow freely inside your fireplace. The more air present, the hotter your fire will burn. With a durable grate, your logs will be securely held above the falling ashes, keeping your fire burning efficiently.

Intended for fireplaces with gas starters that require a greater clearance from the floor to the bottom of the grate. The extra height also allows for more airflow beneath the logs.

Made to accommodate a zero-clearance fireplace, this grate is smaller in size and shallower for a perfect fit in your smaller fireplace.
Less Work, More Fire
Constructed with a sloped shape, gravity forces logs to fall into the center of the grate causing a longer, more consistent burn. This eliminates putting wood on the fire yourself as the top logs will fall to the embers as the fire burns down.

2 | The Materials
Cast from a mold to create a single piece construction, the affordable material is designed to hold in heat. With smaller slots, hot embers are kept in the bed of the grate for a longer burn.
Heavy duty and durable, steel bar grates are constructed with flat or diamond shaped tines ranging from 1/2” to 1-1/8” thick.
Able to withstand the elements, this material is made for use in your outdoor fireplace or outdoor fire pit. Made of a non-corrosive material, it will not rust through over time.
3 | Measuring
A Measure the front width of the fireplace
B Measure the rear width of the fireplace
C Measure the depth from the front to back of the fireplace
D If installed, measure the height of the installed gas starter pipe
Once you have measured your fireplace, subtract 6" from the front width, rear width and depth. The dimensions you now have is your maximum grate size.
4 | Sizing
It is recommended to have 3" of clearance on all sides of the grate. This ensures optimum performance and safety.
Gas Starter Pipe
If a gas starter pipe is installed in your fireplace, your fireplace grate must be tall enough to allow the gas starter pipe to fit below the grate.
