Which grate do I use with a Superior fireplace, model tm500?
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?
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.

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.

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.
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.

from New Jersey asked:
November 22, 2016
I have an opening, in my fireplace, of 35.6"; which size grate should I use?
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.

Is the measurement given the width of the grate? How do you know the depth?
The measurement given in the initial title of each grate is indeed the front width. The additional rear width, depth, and height measurements can be viewed in the item details once you click to the item page itself.

My insert grate is no longer functioning. It measures 31" in the front, 22" in the back, 12" deep and 3.5" tall.
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.

I have a small fireplace in the bedroom; the box is 26" wide in front, 22" wide in back, 14" depth, with 17" height. I'd like to have the grate lower because of the short height. What type of grate would you recommend? Thanks.
from Victoria, BC asked:
September 29, 2013
Which side faces outward? Is it the longest or the shortest side?
Generally, the long side of the grate will face towards the front of the fireplace. However, some cast iron stoves are narrow and deep. Grates intended for that sort of application will have the short side facing outward.

What advantage does cast iron have over steel or vice versa?
When burning firewood with very frequent usage, typically a heavy-duty steel grate with thick bars is recommended. Cast iron grates allow for burning wood or coal.

Will the cast iron fireplace grates rust when used outside?
Yes, the cast iron grates will rust and corrode over time when exposed to outside air moisture. For outdoor applications, you will need one of the stainless steel grates.
