Grate construction help
By far our best selling grate. This unit works amazing in an "average" sized fireplace having a back wall width from 21" to 26", a floor depth of 16" or more, and an opening height of 25" and up. Will work in larger fireboxes also. Commonly sold with the RF-5 Reflective Fireback.

15" Tall, 21" Wide, 14" Deep. Approximate shipping weight in box: 3/4" construction weighs 30 lbs. 1" construction weighs 53 lbs.

Fireplace size requirements for the M-5 grate:
The rear wall of the fireplace must be a minimum of 21" wide (dimension A), the fireplace floor must be a minimum of 16" deep (dimension B), the height of the fireplace front opening should be a minimum of 25" (dimension C) to allow adequate clearance to easily load firewood onto the grate. If your opening is less than 25" in height or your floor is less than 16" in depth, you should consider one of our shorter "S" series grates instead. See more sizing information on our measuring guide page.

Fireplace construction requirements for the M-5 grate:
It is important to understand that the Wall of Fire grate is a one sided unit. This means that the burning firewood is positioned between the grate and the rear wall of the fireplace. Having the firewood in direct contact with the back wall of the fireplace will significantly increase the temperature of the firebrick and may cause brick and mortar fatigue over time. Because of this we highly recommend you also purchase a fireback to shield the back wall of the fireplace from excessive heat. If you are planning to use a Wall of Fire grate in any non mason built fireplace such as a pre-fab, zero clearance, or metal fireplace, the addition of a fireback is absolutely mandatory.

  I purchased the grate for our cabin in Maine, which had an intermittent, but significant smoke problem. Our main home in NC has five fireplaces, all of varying size and configuration. The architect designed them all around the classic fireplace formula—some are very shallow, one open on three sides, one huge, and NONE smoke, ever. So I, being a student of physics, decided that our smoke problem in Maine was pure design and that “moving the fire” toward the back simply wouldn’t work. Can’t rebuild the old stone chimney, so tried the Wall of Fire. Surprise! Not a whiff of smoke! Easier to tend the fire as well: less poking, no logs falling forward. As I watch the smoke, I still believe in physics and think the airflow, when the combustion is held against the back wall, is more laminar, less turbulent, and zips up the flue. You have capitalized on higher order physics. Good job. Greg

High Quality
  High quality, heavy duty. I can tell this grate is going to last a long time. I'm using in an outdoor fireplace -- Does a great job of holding the smoke to the back of my fireplace and out of the "living area". Now that I know the quality of this product, I'm considering purchasing one of their wood racks as well. Highly recommend.

  vertical fire place grill, does as billed , more exposed embers , more radiant heat , easy to load wood over the grill. moretime sitting in the warmth and less time tending the fire. Burns through small wood faster but gets through unsplit logs better. well worth the money. one star lost for rate of consumption

Excellent Product
  Product worked exactly as advertised. Was having a problem with smoke blowing back into the room and the upright grates fixed the issue. Fires are now easier to start and wood burns slowly. Really happy with the purchase and worth the investment.

  It works! What else do you need to say? The coals stay exposed so more heat is radiated into the room. Great concept.

  I own 2 one small M-5 I think and the other maybe an M-7 (wider). These are great! Definitely get the reflective fire back. Burns long and even. Wife and I camp out in the family room all weekend long and the GWOF gets the job done.

  Bought this 4 years ago and it gives off so much more heat than conventional grates. Just ordered the reflective fireback to replace the stainless steel one I had been using and can not wait to have a fire.

Works fantastic!
  Bought this in December when we moved into a new house. This thing works great. Pumps a good amount of heat into the living room without a forced air system (I bought one of the reflective iron backs to go with - highly recommend). Haven't had a single smoke problem. Follow their directions on how to start and feed, and use good, cured wood. Works grate!

  I bought this grate after reading all the reviews and hearing how amazing the amount of heat produced. I feel it puts out the same amount of heat as a fire built on the bricks sans grate. That being said, I throw a few logs on the fire every hour and it tends itself. I use allot less wood with this grate. It provides good heat and if you use the fireback you get residual heat after the fire is out. It does not compare to an insert or wood burning stove but works really well and I love that you do not need to mess with the fire. I would recommend using medium size wood to keep a solid base of coals. Larger pieces of wood seem to take the energy away from the fire. This grate will out perform any fire place grate but does not provide the wood burning stove heat.

Dogs are happy - we are happier!
  Could not wait to start a fire with our new Great Wall of Fire. The amount of heat radiated will reduce our wood consumption by 75% (at least).Our dogs were excited to lay in front of the consistent heat produced by the beautiful bed of embers constantly replenished at it's base. Love this addition to our home!

Excellent Product
  This product performs exactly as advertised. Coals are exposed at the bottom of the grate to maximize heat output. Airflow is optimized for igniting and completely burning logs while smoke is minimized and kept high and to the back of the fireplace. This product makes starting and tending a good fire dramatically easier and safer.

  I have never provided a testimonial for a product before, but your fireplace grate and fireback deserve it. Instead of feeling a draft being created by the heat going up the chimney, I now can feel the warmth of my fire radiating out into the room and house. Thank you for a product that makes having an old-fashioned fire in the fireplace a thoroughly enjoyable and cost-effective experience!!!

Wonderful product
  Everything about this product - web site, ordering, shipping, and its ultimate performance are terrific. When combined with a fireback, fires are very easy to light and we get much much more warmth from the hearth than we ever did before. There is hardly any poking or prodding of the logs once they are loaded onto the grate. If you enjoy the warmth of a fire, this product will be worth every penny.
