Andiron grates

By using andirons along with an andiron grate, you elevate the fire off the ground. This arrangement not only keeps the fire in place, even with smaller logs, but also enhances the airflow, leading to improved combustion. This results in a more sustainable burning process. In addition to using andiron grates with andirons, you can achieve similar effects with a fire basket. Our newly made grates, designed for use with fireplace andirons, are crafted by a skilled Dutch blacksmith and can be selected to your needs in terms of width, height, and depth.

Consider the spacing of the grate bars

The spacing between the bars of the andiron grate should accommodate the size of the logs you intend to burn. The bars need to be close enough together to prevent the wood from falling through, yet not so close that airflow from below is restricted.

Choose the appropriate width for the andiron grate

Select a grate width that matches the maximum width of the fire you plan to burn in your fireplace. Ensure that the chosen grate width does not exceed the width of the fireback. Although the andirons may visually appear wider than the fireback, the andiron grate should complement the overall aesthetics without exceeding the fireback's width.

Ensure proper fit with the andirons

The andiron grate should fit securely on the supports of the andirons without protruding from the fireplace. This ensures safety and facilitates efficient combustion and smoke removal.

Ash pan not needed, get used to an ash layer

An ash pan under the andirons and grate might seem to have its advantages; it eliminates the need to scoop ashes out of the fireplace and just empty the ash pan. However, the ash pan has a significant drawback that negates the advantage of burning on andirons and a grate. It concerns the underfloor ventilation necessary for good draught and combustion. Furthermore, an ash layer has the benefit of acting as an insulation layer; with an ash layer, the fireplace is less cold and, as a result, there is a quicker and better draught in the fireplace. Therefore, do not scoop all the ash away so that a thin layer remains. Read also: Do I need an ash pan in my fireplace?
