Open fire grates & parts


Open fire grates & parts

Stool grate

The stool grate is one of the most commonly used open fire grates, stool grates are available for 16" fires and 18" fires and there is also a 16" stool grate with an optional guard at the front.  Whilst they are refered to as 16" and 18" grates the size relates to the fireplace opening size not the front of the grate so a 16" grate will actually measure around 14.5" across the front.

We usually have the 16" and 18" stool grates and suitable ashpans in stock.
