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.

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.
