Prevent damage to your home by employing a fireplace screen whenever your wood-burning fireplace is being used. You can still view the lovely fire and enjoy its warmth while you provide adequate protection from flying sparks and rolling embers. A screen can also be used to camouflage a hearth that could use a bit of cleaning up. Napa Forge fire screens come in plain and serviceable models but they really specialize in decorative screens that feature intricate scroll work. Both single panel and three-fold designs are available.
