Fire Guards and Spark Guards, the difference…

Spark guards are to prevent sparks landing on anything outside the fire, they are generally lighter than a fire guard and they should fit snugly around an opening.  Fire guards are more sturdy and ornate depending on how much they cover the opening they will arrest sparks from the fire to an extent, and also keep animals out of the fire.  A guard could be fixed to the wall to make them more secure against animals or people coming into contact with the fire.
