    Wood Stove Fireplace Grates

    On a chilly winter's evening, there's no better place to be than sitting in front of a cozy fire with a cup of hot chocolate, especially when the beautiful logs burning in your fireplace are situated on one of our gorgeous cast iron fireplace grates! Not only do wood stove grates look nice, but the fire will actually burn more efficiently since air is able to circulate below the logs. Some of our most popular gas fireplace grates include the G Series Franlin 22 inch 'Flat Bottom' Cast Iron Fireplace Grate, the Copperfield Cast Iron 18-inch One Piece Fire Grate, and the 24" Copperfield Welded Steel 6 Bar Fire Grate.

    You would need to select one of the stainless steel options offered here by selecting "Stainless Steel" for the color option. For a tool set, I recommend the Five Piece Hanging Fireplace Twist Toolset in Stainless Steel Finish.

    Which grate do I use with a Superior fireplace, model tm500?
    1 Answer
    The grate should be no wider than the back of your fireplace. Next, check the depth of your fireplace to make sure that the grate's front legs will not interfere with anything in front of the firebox, such as a raised hearth or a glass door frame, if applicable. Finally, check the height of the fireplace and keep in mind that you will need enough room to easily toss wood over the grate and onto the fire.

    Which one is going to with stand up to high heat better; steel or cast iron?
    1 Answer
    When searching through the products we offer, the diamond steel grates offered by Pilgrim will likely last much longer than models offered by any other manufacturer with heavy use. These grates are made in the U.S.A. and come with a limited lifetime warranty.

    January 1, 2017
    I have a large outdoor fireplace and am in need of a grate. I was looking at a cast Iron grate but there are concerns over rust since the fireplace is outside. The fire place dimensions are 48" wide x 24" Deep area under the flue but there is another 18"+ inches from the front of the facade to the flue. It is very deep. Do you have a suggestion on the size grate that would look appropriate? Should we have concerns about the rusting? We are on the ocean, but I don't think there will be much contact with water from wind driven rain or snow.
    1 Answer
    For this fireplace, I recommend the 36" Hearth Products Controls Stainless Steel Outdoor Log Grate as you will indeed require a stainless steel grate to prevent corrosion and this grate is sized properly for your fireplace opening.

    Do you know where we might buy a wrought iron grate with the following dimensions: front leg height 4.5"; slopes back to leg height 2.5"; 16" depth; 25" width.
    1 Answer
    We only offer two grates that meet the width and depth requirements you have sated. One is 4.5 inch height. The other has a 4 inch height. Neither slope, and of the two the 4" H grate is the heavier duty one, in my opinion.

    I have a new outdoor fireplace with these dimensions: 31" across back, 42" across front and 21" deep. What size grate should I order?
    1 Answer
    For your size opening, I recommend a grate between 26 and 29 inches wide in the front, with a depth of no more than 18 inches. A good example of an item that will fit well is the 28.5" Pilgrim Eight-Bar Steel Fireplace Grate with Center Leg - 6 Inch Clearance.

    I have an opening, in my fireplace, of 35.6"; which size grate should I use?
    1 Answer
    For prefabricated fireplaces, only the part number associated with the original grate should be used and we will need to know the make and model number. For masonry fireplace openings, we will also need to know the rear width and depth of the opening to determine the correct size. Typically, you should use a grate that provides 4-6" of clearance from each side of your opening.

    My insert grate is no longer functioning. It measures 31" in the front, 22" in the back, 12" deep and 3.5" tall.
    1 Answer
    We do not offer any grates with such a dramatic front-to-back taper and none of the grates will measure only 3 1/2" tall, if you are referring to the overall height. If you are referring to the clearance between the hearth floor and the bottom of the grate bars provided by the grate legs, we have grates offering only 3". However, the original grate should always be used with any prefabricated fireplace. To look into the availability of this replacement part, please provide the make and model number for your hearth system.

    from Everett, WA asked:
    January 23, 2016
    I can lift up the grate but it is attached to the fireplace in the back, so I can only lift it up to clean underneath, but not take it completely out. I am wondering about how to remove the grate. I would like to insert a grate which is a heat exchanger for more efficiency. I don't know what type of fireplace is in there. It is just one of the standard cheap corner unit fireplaces for a condo built in the 70's. Would it be all right to take a hacksaw to it? I can't get behind to see how it is attached. How would I detach this grate?
    1 Answer
    Most grates in prefabricated fireplaces are held in place with sheet metal retaining tabs. The back feet of the grate usually push through holes in the tab, which have teeth that bite into the grate legs, holding it in position. You should be able to push down on the tabs with a pair of pliers while pulling up on the grate, allowing you to remove it.

    Which fireplace grate material holds up the longest?
    1 Answer
    While all grates have the potential to last a lifetime with proper wood burning practices, stainless steel will be more forgiving as it is more corrosion-resistant. This is important to note if you do not burn properly dried hardwood or do not rake or maintain your coal bed.

    We have a fireplace that is in the shape of a trapozoid. It is 21" Deep. It is 35" along the back of the trapozoid and then the front is 43". It is a masonry fireplace on our back patio so it is an outside fireplace that is exposed to the elements. What size grate I should get as well as what type of material I should use for an outdoor fireplace?
    1 Answer
    For your application, I recommend using a stainless steel grate, as cast iron and steel will not hold up well in humid outdoor air. A product such as the 30" Hearth Products Controls Stainless Steel Outdoor Log Grate will be a good size.

    I have a 4" tall grate that will not "draw" correctly in a fireplace that is 24" wide in the front. What 2" grate would you suggest for me?
    1 Answer
    The G Series Franklin 17 in. 'Flat Bottom' Cast Iron Fireplace Grate is a popular model of basket grate that uses a 2 inch leg height. However, switching grates may not solve the problem, as a poorly drafting chimney is usually due to wind interference or a flue sizing problem.

    We have a pre-fabricated fireplace in our double wide mobile home. It is 18 3/4" wide at the back wall, 30" wide across the front, 18" high at the doors, and 15" deep. We need to replace the grate and are also thinking about installing a reflective fireback. Which grate and fireback would you recommend?
    1 Answer
    I highly recommend the 22.5" Pilgrim Seven-Bar Narrow Steel Fireplace Grate - 3 Inch Clearance for your application. This grate is made specifically for smaller prefabricated fireplaces and is excellent quality. The grate carries a lifetime warranty as well, which makes it essentially the last grate you would have to buy. As for the fire back, I recommend the Copperfield Stainless Steel Radiant Fireback - 15-in. X 15-in. - 70020. This model offers excellent reflective qualities and does well to amplify heat output into the room.

    I have a masonry fireplace and it's dimensions are 22" wide in the back, 36" in the front and 21 3/4" deep. It is 25" high to the top of the front opening but higher to the top inside. I would like to buy a heavy-duty grate that will last a long time. What grate would you suggest and where should it be placed in the fireplace?
    1 Answer
    A very well made and heavily built grate that we carry is the 24.5" Pilgrim Seven-Bar Steel Fireplace Grate - 6 Inch Clearance. This product line has proven to be one of the most durable that we offer and while the initial cost is higher than some other models, the durability more than makes up for the investment. The grate should be centered within the fireplace to allow air flow on all sides.

    1 Answer
    One possible suggestion is the 36.5" Pilgrim Ten-Bar Rectangular Steel Fireplace Grate with Center Leg - 4.5 Inch Clearance. This grate is 36 1/2" wide at the front and back, with a depth of 17". As such, of course your firebox will need to accommodate the 36 1/2" width at that point (17" from the front) for this grate to fit.

    November 8, 2014
    I burn old fashioned fires with real pinewood starters in a large fireplace. Which type of fireplace grate is better, steel or cast iron?
    1 Answer
    There is some debate as to the superior material for a grate, but in my experience, steel is the better material. It is not brittle and prone to cracking like cast iron is and can deal with more rapid expansion. One of the most popular steel grates in this size is the 20.5" Pilgrim Six-Bar Tapered Steel Fireplace Grate - 4.5 Inch Clearance. The grate uses diamond cross section bars that measure 1 1/8 at the widest point.

    from Detroit, MI asked:
    November 8, 2014
    Our fireplace has a wood stove insert and we are in need of a new grate. The opening is 24 inches wide and 15 inches deep. We burn quite a bit of wood and usually "burn through" a grate every season or season and a half. What grate would you suggest? We do use a dura flame starter brick to start the fire. The starter brick is approxiamtely 2" x 6". I only mention this because I am not sure if this is what is causing the degradation of the grate.
    1 Answer
    Although the fire starters do contain some paraffin and other byproducts, they have not been shown to cause grate degradation. Fireplace inserts typically do not utilize grates and the high temperatures achieved within the firebox can cause a grate to break down relatively quickly. A product such as the G Series Franklin 17 in. 'Flat Bottom' Cast Iron Fireplace Grate should work well, as it is designed for small Franklin stoves.

    1 Answer
    For the shallow prefab fireplaces such as your model, a grate like the 22.5" Pilgrim Seven-Bar Narrow Steel Fireplace Grate - 3 Inch Clearance will work well. This shallow, high quality grate will fit your depth requirements, while ensuring durability for the high BTU output of a hardwood fire.

    If the back of my fireplace grate is 22 inches wide and the front is 24 inches wide, what size would I order?

    Fireplace grates will usually taper in this way. The advertised dimension will be taken from the front of the grate. As such, you will want to order a 24 inch wide replacement.

    from Elk Rapids, MI asked:
    October 4, 2014
    The grate has two clips holding on to the back of it in my fireplace. How do I unhook these clips?
    1 Answer
    Depending on the manufacturer and model of the fireplace, the clips may be attached in a couple of different ways. Some designs rely on the clips simply pushing into position on the back legs. By using a pair of snub nose pliers and grasping the grate firmly, you can pull the tabs loose from the back legs. Other designs will have set screws that are part of the brackets. The screws will need to be loosened to allow removal of the grate.

    1 Answer
    Likely the best option for your fireplace will be the 33.5" Pilgrim Ten-Bar Tapered Steel Fireplace Grate with Center Leg - 4.5 Inch Clearance. This model will offer sufficient clearance, depth, and width to fit proportionally to your opening.

    from Alexandria, VA asked:
    July 16, 2014
    I have a small fireplace - Width: 23", Depth: 17", Height 25". I want a grate that has high enough clearance that I can put the Duraflame or any other starterlog under the grate without the grate laying on top of it.
    1 Answer
    My apologies, but the smaller grates that will fit your fireplace opening only have a leg height of 2 to 3 inches. This will generally be the case for all grates in this size range, as the smaller grate means it will hold less wood and as a result, there will be a smaller bed of embers below. The grates are positioned lower to take advantage of the smaller bed of embers. You may need to shim the grate with firebrick in order to raise it up further. The only other option would be to have a custom grate fabricated from steel bar.

    February 17, 2014
    My fire place is 42" in front, 32" in back and 22" deep. Which size of the HY-C G500 Sampson fire place grate would best fit - 32" x 28" or 28" x 24"?
    1 Answer
    The ideal size to use will be the 28 by 24 model. A rule of thumb is to have 5 to 6 inches of clearance from the edge of the grate to the fireplace wall. The 28 by 24 will best achieve this spacing, while the larger model will be a bit crowded in the fireplace opening.

    February 12, 2014
    We bought our house about a year ago and have so enjoyed our amazing new fireplace. We keep fires going most night and during cold spells to help offset heating costs. I noticed this morning that our grate is bent forward. It came with the house and is about 15 x 12 inches and has 6 arms that are close in the front and spread wider in the back. Our fire place is 40 inches wide, 24 deep and 28 high. What type, style, size or model would you recommend. We are loving our fireplace and want to make it work and look its best.
    1 Answer
    Per your description, it almost sounds as if the grate is installed backwards in the fireplace. Usually, a grate will slope downwards toward the back of the fireplace. The individual bars will be spread wide in the front and narrow down in the back.

    We recommend the UniFlame 22 Inch Steel Fireplace Grate. This grate has an overall front width of 30 inches, a rear width of 25, and a depth of 15 inches. The rear legs are set forward a few inches, so there should be sufficient clearance before the opening tapers to 24 inches.

    I've bought two grates from Lowes in the past 2 years. They keep getting hot and bending in the center. Do you have anything that won't do this?

    I would choose one of the fireplace grates on our site manufactured by Pilgrim as these carry a lifetime warranty. The easiest way to find these grates is to simply type "diamond steel" in our search box. You should be able to find a grate to fit your fireplace that will last for years and years.

    Traditional fireplace grating offers a number of benefits. Instead of having the freedom to roll around as they burn inside your fireplace, the logs are contained inside this basket-like shelf. Air can circulate all the way around the logs, creating a hotter flame and more warmth for your living area! And the ashes that fall as the logs burn will tend to fall in a pile underneath the fireplace grate, making for easy clean up after they've cooled. Here at, we like to give our customers a diverse set of choices when it comes to wood stove grates and more hearth-enhancing items. Our fireplace grates come in a wide variety of sizes to fit both fireplace inserts as well as large, open fireplaces. Some of our fireplace log grates are made of cast iron, while others feature steel. Both materials are durable and strong - perfect for cradling the burning logs in your fireplace! Our models feature a traditional design, and they offer a classy look for your fireplace floor. As far as pricing goes, is one of the least expensive fireplace stores on the web. We offer the fireplace supplies you need at a great price. And as an added bonus, you'll also enjoy free shipping on most of our products!
