Description

12" Tall, 16" Wide, 11" Deep. Approximate shipping weight in box: 3/4" construction weighs 21 lbs. 1" construction weighs 37 lbs.

Fireplace size requirements for the S-4 grate:
The rear wall of the fireplace must be a minimum of 16" wide (dimension A), the fireplace floor must be a minimum of 13" deep (dimension B), the height of the fireplace front opening should be a minimum of 20" (dimension C) to allow adequate clearance to easily load firewood onto the grate. If your opening is less than 20" in height, you may need the shortened version of this grate. Select the "customize grate height" option above if this is the case. See more sizing information on our measuring guide page.


Fireplace construction requirements for the S-4 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.

Buy The Grate and Fireback
Our vacation home on Lake Sunapee has a 1980 Heatilator Mark III all metal fireplace so we have fired it up only occasionally...and just for ambiance, certainly not for heat. We were planning to rip out the old metal Heatilator and replace with bricks and mortar. That is until I came across the grate and fireback options from Grate Wall of Fire. I was researching info on fireplace inserts when I learned of the grate and fireback system that we eventually purchased. I am more very surprised at how the 16-inch grate allows the logs to burn so thoroughly...and with absolutely no smoke in the room. Amazing difference! Now I have complete confidence to burn larger fires because the steel fireback protects the heavily dented and creased metal back wall of the Heatilator. No longer do I worry that the Heatilator back wall might allow flame to get through. And the unique grate design allows embers to build below the burning logs unlike anything I have seen. All this results in a rather impressive increase in the amount of heat we feel, probably because the thick steel fireback gets very hot and radiates the heat back into the room. If we didn't have gas logs installed in the two fireplaces in our other home, we'd install the grate and fireback system from Grate Wall of Fire!!! Quit thinking abaout it and just put them in. You will notice the heat difference!

You Need This Grate!
Absolute Best Grate on the market. I've owned mine for 2 years and I absolutely love it! It throws off more heat and hardly any smoke comes back into the room. If you looking for a fireplace grate, look no further.

Just Get This Thing
No question about it...if you have a fireplace you NEED this grate along with the fireback. Your wood will burn slower. Your fire will be hotter and will radiate into the room instead of flying up the flue. Also, it's just easier to build your fire. LOVE this thing!

Very pleased, works as advertised.
I ordered this grate for a fireplace insert that is outside under a covered porch. We use this fireplace a lot and had worn out the cheap grate that came with it. I ordered the economy fireback and this grate at the 2" shorter than normal height since this fireplace only has a 16" opening. It fits perfectly and wood is easy to load. The first thing we noticed was the extra heat that it puts out. We had to move further back than usual. It was a little harder to start, I need to have some smaller kindling pieces to put down first, that will solve that problem. Once going, the fire burned at a much more moderate rate, we used less wood and got more heat. A winning situation! We love it!

Perfect fit for us
We live near Atlanta, and added this grate, along with the HDRF-5 to our 20 year old, prefab zero clearance fire place. I am very satisfied with the purchase, the new setup adds 5% maybe 10% efficiency, to our inefficient setup. But for us, we burn for ambiance and relaxation, and a $3000 insert is probably 10 years outside our budget. We went with the 16” grate because our largest logs are 18”, and I think it makes the fireplace look a little larger. I’m glad we bought the largest fireback that would fit. We burn far more wood now, than we did previously, but that is simply because I love to use the fireplace more, and stacking the wood nice and high initially is so much easier now, and makes for such a beautiful fire. I would estimate we will burn 3/4 cord (1-2 Times a week, November to March), when last year we burned about 1/4 cord. The grate also fit perfectly over our gas starter.

S4 Vertical
Great product, pushes heat across the room much further than standard great. Don't have to move logs around. Smoke goes right up. Family member already bought one based on mine. I have Bell Fire style fireplace, European design, back is curved, floor has grooves the reflective back back did now work for me. The return process has been smooth.

S-4 fireplace grate
excellent product! A must for a shallow firebox. Was skeptical when looking at fire grates but after using for the last 2 months it burnes the logs completely without poking and keeps the smoke in the back of the firebox. Would highly recommend.

Thank you
I am using my grate for the first time today and it is everything you said it would be. The heat output is much much better than my old grate. Ordering was simple and I chose the 2 inch shorter customization as recommended by your online sizing guidelines. I am a very happy customer.

Nice change
Most fireplaces in Texas are just for ambiance. I bought a standard fireplace grate and fire back - my fireplace warms the front half of my house by 3-4 degrees. I'm very happy with the product.

Fire wall grate
Thank you for the first fire I ever had that didn't fill my house with smoke. No poking or tending, I just watch it burn.

Highly recommend this product
Our home has a fireplace that tends to leak smoke into the room, especially when it is windy. This grate has made that problem simply disappear. The design also requires less effort to keep the fire burning steadily, and the heat output is considerably enhanced (we bought the reflective back also). We are very pleased with this purchase, which has returned the joy of having a fire, and has markedly increased our use.

Grate Product! (pun intended)
S-4 16" grate with 1" reflective fireback. Room is 72F now (34 outside) with a small fire. With our old grate this would have taken a blazing fire. More heat, less smoke, reduced wood consumption. The fireback holds heat for hours after the fire dies down. Great product combination!

Excellent Product
I originally orderded the smaller grate as I have a pre-fab zero clearance fireplace and was concerned about fit. Had second thoughts after re-measuring and called the company. The service technition couldn’t have been more helpful and I ended up ordering this size customized 2 inches shorter. The product works great. It is much easier to get the fires started and adding logs has not been a problem due to ordering the shorter grate. As suggested for pre-fabs, I also ordered the 16 inch fireback which fit perfectly and protects the back wall panel from cracking which has happened to me in the past. I am extremely happy with the purchases and highly recommend.

Good quality, but...
The grate definitely helped start a fire much easier than when I used a traditional grate, however, did not help with the generation of heat from the fireplace out into the room. The fact that I have a pre-fab fireplace that, I am told, was not really manufactured to heat a room, but primarily just for decorative purposes, may also be a part of the problem. I was very satisfied with the purchase and delivery process and the interactions I had with customer service.

Everything it says it will do and more.
Goes perfectly well with a back piece. Once i got the technique down the fire starts near effortlessly. unfortunately my wood is sometimes wet or damp but once this fire gets going i can place damp wood just in front and top in the grate and the grate and coal/ash heat take care of the rest. i Love this grate it make enjoying a fire enjoying instead of a choir.

Great Grate but Won't Work for Me!
I love the concept of this fire grate. it is made with great quality. It would be the perfect solution for me, but even though I ordered it 2" shorter, when I put it in the fireplace the depth of the legs do not allow me to tip it to get wood into it! I did not remember the website telling me to consider the depth from the front to the back of the fireplace. That question would certainly have helped me know this grade will not work for me.

Grate review
My 16" grate works fine. I could've gotten a larger one but it fits the logs OK. I probably should've bought a larger backing though; although the heat shield does the trick as well.

Dear Grate Wall of Fire
Both the fire grate and reflective back are working great and fit perfectly in our zero clearance fireplace, thanks to the customizing that was suggested by your representative I spoke to over the phone. I am recommending these products to my family and friends that have fireplaces in their homes. Many thanks.

So glad I finally decided to get this
I had my eye on the Grate Wall of Fire for over five years before finally taking the plunge. I knew that it wouldn't magically transform my fireplace into a heat-the-whole-home appliance, and I was right about that. It does, however, generate a lot more heat, and causes our furnace (with the thermostat in the same room) to kick on less often. More importantly for us, though, is that we have nice fires with less effort, more often, than before. While this might change with time (we have had it about a month, with nearly continuous fires going) this grate has made all the difference. We look forward to many years of continued use!

Excellent product. Works as advertised. Helpful and cooperative customer service. Rapid shipping. Wish my fireplace were 2" deeper so I could use a larger. It isn't. This grate does a nice job.
