Our collection of wood burning fireplace grates are made from heavy duty metal stock to ensure a stronger, longer-lasting product! Keep your logs elevated above the floor in your firebox and promote better air circulation for a hotter, more efficient burn. Our cast iron and steel grates also allow coals to develop underneath as the wood burns, which further contributes to the warmth you'll experience! Choose from a number of sizes and styles to suit your needs. These affordable fireplace grates are a terrific addition to any wood burning masonry or zero clearance unit!
We're going to give you quick, easy to follow instructions for this process! Grab a pencil and paper as well as a metal tape measure. In the following demonstration, we're featuring a zero clearance fireplace for measuring purposes:
1. First, start by measuring the inside of your firebox at the farthest back width. Let's assume your measurement is 33 inches.
2. Next, measure the inside of your firebox at the farthest front width. Let's assume your measurement is 49 inches.
3. Finally, measure the depth of your firebox, from the back wall to the front of your firebox. We're going to assume the measurement is 20 inches.
For safety and proper functioning of your fireplace, we recommend a 3 inch clearance on all sides of the log grate to the three interior walls and opening of the firebox. Take the smallest width, which is 33 inches in the above example, and subtract 6 inches. This will give you a dimension of 27 inches for the width of your log grate. Now subtract 6 inches from the depth, which in this case was 20 inches. You would need a log grate that is 27 inches wide with a maximum 14 inch depth. In the above example, our F-Series Zero Clearance 27 Inch Fireplace Grate would be perfect!
How will I know which grates I can use in my wood burning fireplace?
