Fireplace grates are essential pieces to most wood burning fireplaces. The fireplace grate sits within the actual fireplace and holds the logs several inches off the fireplace floor. The grate allows for oxygen to circulate around the logs, which enables the logs to generate more heat to burn more efficiently within the fireplace. The grate also provides a safety function by containing the logs within the fireplace, preventing burning logs from escaping and becoming a fire hazard.
When choosing a fire grate you will notice that they are available in several materials, most commonly steel and cast iron. Steel grates are long lasting, durable, and require little maintenance. Cast iron fireplace grates are also a popular choice due to their sturdiness and durability.
