Fireplace Mesh Curtain

When it comes to creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere in your home, a fireplace has an undeniable charm. Whether you're using it for warmth during chilly evenings or simply enjoying the soothing crackling sound of burning wood, a fireplace adds a touch of comfort to any space. However, fireplace safety is paramount, and that's where fireplace mesh curtains come into play.

Fireplace Mesh Curtain: An Essential Safety Accessory

A fireplace mesh curtain is an essential accessory for anyone who enjoys the warmth and ambiance of a traditional wood-burning fireplace. These curtains are designed to prevent sparks, embers, and debris from escaping the fireplace and potentially causing harm or damage to your living space. The primary purpose of a fireplace mesh curtain is to act as a barrier that contains sparks and prevents them from flying out into the room.

Fireplace curtains serve as a protective barrier between the open flames and your living area. By installing a fireplace curtain, you ensure that any potential hazards are kept at bay. This is particularly important if you have children or pets around, as they may inadvertently get too close to the fire. The mesh design allows for proper airflow, ensuring that the fire receives enough oxygen to burn efficiently while minimizing the risk of sparks escaping.

Choosing the Right Fireplace Mesh Curtain

When it comes to choosing a fireplace mesh curtain, there are a few key factors to consider. Firstly, the size of the curtain should match the dimensions of your fireplace opening. A curtain that's too small won't provide adequate coverage, while one that's too large might be difficult to install and could potentially pose safety risks. The fireplace mesh also needs to have a little bit of clearance from the bottom of the firebox, so it doesn't drag.

How to Measure for New Fireplace Curtains

If you are replacing existing mesh panels the measuring process will be slightly different depending on if you are using an existing mounting rod or purchasing a new one. We will explain the measuring process for the most common scenarios below:

Measuring With Rod   Measuring No Rod

Replacing an Existing Mesh Curtain

  • Measure the overall height of the existing mesh curtain including the hanger rings. Select the measurement that is nearest to your existing mesh curtain from the relevant product page.

Ordering Mesh Curtains Without Mounting Hardware

  • Measure the height from your fireplace floor to the top of the rod. This will give you the overall height of the new mesh curtain including the hanger rings. Keep in mind that you should always account for 1/2" clearance so the new mesh curtain doesn't drag along the fireplace floor. For example, if you measure 20" high to the top of the hanger rod you would want to order fireplace mesh curtains with a finished size of 19 1/2".

Ordering Mesh Curtains and Hardware

  • Measure from your fireplace floor to the firebox ceiling or lintel iron. This will give you the overall opening height. If you are planning to purchase a mounting rod then you need to subtract 1" from your overall opening height to account for the hardware. You also need to provide 1/2" clearance for the fireplace mesh. In total, if you are purchasing replacement mesh and a mounting rod you need to subtract 1 1/2" from your overall opening height, this will tell you how high your replacement mesh needs to be.

Another important consideration is the material of the fireplace curtain mesh. Our high-quality materials ensure that the curtain can withstand the heat of the fire without becoming damaged. All of our fireplace mesh is made with 19 gauge steel wire.

Fireplace mesh curtain replacement is also something to keep in mind. Over time, wear and tear can affect the effectiveness of the curtain. If you notice any signs of damage, such as fraying or warping, it's important to replace the curtain promptly to maintain the safety of your fireplace.
