Grate Wall of Fire

Vertical fireplace grate by Grate Wall of Fire.Another small update on our fireplace. The days have gotten cold and we thought that our wood burning fireplace could be a great source of additional heat. However even with a fairly big fires we weren’t feeling much warmth coming into the house.

When we had our chimney cleaned the guys doing the work recommended looking into Grate Wall of Fire products — specifically a large metal plate that goes agains the back wall of a fireplace — reflective fireback.

Our setup. 1 inch think 31 inch fireback and M-7 vertical 31 inch fireplace grate.So we measured our fireplace and ordered 1 inch think 31 inch long fireback. The thing ended up weighting more than 100 pounds. Alena and I barely managed to put it inside.

Sadly one of the legs has gotten damaged during shipping. I called the company and they have fabricated a pair of custom legs to attach to our fireback that same very night and sent them out. And they gave us a 25% discount on the fireback because of the hassle. Amazing customer service.

After using our new fireback for a couple of days we decided to buy a new vertical 31 inch grate to replace our old horizontal one. We LOVE our new set up. First of all all the wood burns right agains the fireback. Adding new wood is also great — just throw it over the grate and it goes on top of you fire without other logs falling all over the place.

Pretty and functional.Yesterday we gave it a full test and our family room eventually has gotten quite hot — in fact it was too hot to sit on the fireplace end of sofa. Eventually the fire went out at around 10pm and we left glowing ash in the fireplace when we went to sleep. In the morning when we went to close the flute the fireback was still warm to the touch.

Again, highly highly recommend the products from Grate Wall of Fire.
