Fireplace grates come in all sizes and shapes to fit most any fireplace you have. Made of quality cast iron, they provide a safe, stable and convenient spot to set up your firewood. Logs are not likely to haphazardly fall out of the fire while burning when set on a grate. The grates also keep the ashes contained underneath to make cleanup easy. Using grates in your fireplace also creates a much needed air space underneath for proper burning and ventilation, giving you a fire that is functional as well as decorative.
