Spark Guards & Fire Guards
When you have an open fire it is important you protect yourself and your home. If you operate a solid fuel fire you will know how often the fire can spit sparks and embers out of the opening. At the Fireside Shop we offer a large selection of spark guards and fire guards to minimise the risks of an open fire. Spark guards are built using finer mesh and serve the purpose of stopping sparks and embers leaving the fire chamber which could otherwise start a fire. Spark guards are normally large enough to cover the fire opening, it is recommended to leave as little a gap as possible to protect against sparks from your fireplace.
We also stock a large range of fire guards, these larger more sturdy guards can be used for stopping sparks leaving the fire, but are also used to stop people, children or pets getting to close to a hot open fire. A fire guard is normally a few inches larger then the fire opening itself and should stand far enough forward from the fire, about 8" to 10" to stop anyone getting to close.
