A large wood-burning fireplace is a great source of heat... maybe too good. Let me explain: It can be hard to find a large enough fireplace grate to hold the logs in a stable position. Get one too small, and you'll have to use smaller logs that won't make the most of the fire.

This massive 28" Lifetime™ log grate from Custom Firescreen Inc® is wide enough for large fireplaces. It's ...

What's the point of having a giant fireplace if you can't burn large logs in it? In order to burn those large pieces of wood, you need a log grate wide enough to fit the firebox properly.

What do I need a grate for?

If you have a wood-burning fireplace, a grate is an important accessory as it holds fireplace logs in place as they burn. As the fire burns, ash filters through the grate keeping it away from the remaining logs. This allows more oxygen to flow under the grate and into the fire, making it more efficient. 

It also helps to keep logs that are on fire from rolling out of the firebox.

So it's just for wood-burning fireplaces then?

No! In some cases these grates can also be used with some gas-powered log sets to give them a more authentic feel. Just check to make sure that your log set doesn't already come with a grate.

What are they made out of?

There are several materials used in our log grates, but they're mostly made from either cast iron, bar steel, or stainless steel.

Why would I spend the extra money for a stainless steel log grate?

Most cast iron and steel grates will rust and develop a patina color over time. This makes them less-than-ideal for outdoor use when exposed to extra elements like wind and rain.

The benefit of stainless steel log grates is that they can be used outdoors, exposed to the elements without rusting. They are much longer-lasting than the other grates here.

What is an "ember catcher?"

Some grates come with an extra wire mesh on the base, called an ember catcher. This mesh still allows the ash to fall through but retains larger chunks to make sure they burn down further in the fire.

Do I need single-sided or double-sided?

It depends on your fireplace. Here's the basics:


A single grate is broad up front, narrow in the back.

Most standard fireplaces have a single side (sometimes referred to as "single face" or just "standard"), which usually means that the firebox has only one open side or door through which to view the fire. Most wood-burning fireplaces are designed this way for safety reasons, and as a result most grates are designed for this type of fireplace. These grates have a wide front and a narrow back.


Double grates are deeper and have the same width on both sides.

Double-sided (sometimes called "double face," "see-through," or "see-thru") fireplaces have two sides and sometimes two doors that open into opposite-facing rooms. A grate designed for these fireplaces will usually be about twice as deep as a single-sided fireplace grate and have the same width on either side. These grates are also used in "peninsula" style fireplaces. They are rare, and we don't always stock them -- just call us for a custom quote at 1-888-986-1535 and we'll see if we can get one for you at a grate price (see what I did there?)!


What is a "diamond bar?"

There are actually three main styles of grate that we sell:

Some grates are made of flat bars that are welded to the grate's legs.

Bar grates are made from forged and bent steel that has been flat-welded to another bar that acts as legs. This makes the basket flat. Their strength is entirely dependent on the quality of the steel. If they have a drawback it's that ash collects rather easily on the flat side of the bars during a burn.

Diamond bar grates have added strength because of the thicker bars.

Diamond bar grates are usually made from steel bars that are bent and weld-mounted diagonally. This allows them to use less material and less weight than regular bar grates while still being sturdy and strong. A benefit of the diagonal mounting is that ash slides off the grate and onto the fireplace's floor. 

Cast grates are poured into a mold and are a single piece of metal with no welds.

Cast grates are usually single pieces of metal that have been poured and forged into their shape. They are sturdy and have no welds that can split in the heat of the fire, but they are usually more susceptible to rust.

I received my shipment of the Cottesmore Electric Coal Basket this morning.  I am very pleased with the basket and the way it operates.  The heater is very quiet and the flickering flame effect is very attractive. I had planned to plug the unit into the electrical outlet on the right side of my fireplace.  The electric cord is not long enough to reach that outlet since the cord comes off the left side of the unit.  I will have to work something else out. I was very happy and surprised to receive the basket this soon.  Thank you for such excellent service.  Its been a real pleasure doing business with your company.
