You just have to know the precise measurement of your fireplace and you can find a fireplace screen that fits. If you are into traditional type, you should go for the metal fireplace screen. Brass, steel, aluminum and iron are some of the most popular metals used in fireplace screen. Most of these metal screens have a mesh screen that helps prevent ash and sparks from flying. You must remember that metal screens can reach extreme temperature so it is best to be cautious and avoid touching them. There are also stained glass types of fireplace screens and these types come with lead and wooden frames.
Remember that a screen for the fireplace is both decorative and useful for the fireplace so it is necessary to examine the screen that you are going to purchase has a good quality but still economical. It may be best to consider the traditional and modern looks when choosing a fireplace screen. You have to make sure that the fireplace screen you choose has decorative and protective features. Before buying a screen for your fireplace, it is essential to know certain details about your fireplace. You should know about the measurements of your fireplace in order to know the dimension of the screen you need. A fireplace screen made of wrought iron can give your fireplace an attractive design.
The benefit to a ventless gas log fireplace outdoors is convenience and cost. The process of building proper ventilation and a chimney can often double the expense of custom fireplaces indoors or outside. Convenience is the ability to create a perfect flame pattern as easily as turning on a barbeque grill. Many gas log fireplaces have complex valve options that allow variable remote controls that alter flame height, on/off remotes, wall switches and thermostatic controllers that turn the fireplace on and off based on the temperature read at the thermostat. I do not recommend any of these valves in your backyard. A manual safety pilot kit has a standing pilot light that stays on always. As long as the pilot is burning, the fireplace can be controlled with a simple control knob. A couple of decorative ceramic pinecones or wood chunks hide the controls. Remotes, wall switches, thermostatic controls and other valves use batteries. Even a gas log fireplace that is under an overhang will be affected by moisture in the air. Here in Florida where humidity is tremendous, a battery operated valve will corrode within a year in most backyards.
Though having a fireplace can complete the overall look of your home and add warmth to the whole area, you cannot ignore the risk of starting a fire. This accident can happen when a log or an ember falls to the carpet or the furnishings and when a spark jumps out of the fireplace. In order to prevent these accidents, it is recommended to have a fireplace screen. Aside from its safety purpose, a fireplace screen can add beauty to your fireplace as well as to your home. Most fireplace screens are made from different materials such as steel, cast iron and other hard metals that have the ability to bear extreme heat from the fireplace. The fireplace screen is designed in a way that they can prevent the logs, sparks and embers to leave the fireplace. Fireplace screens are important as they can lessen the risk of having a fire. A screen for the fireplace is divided into two sections - the outer part has the decorative design while the inner part has small holes on the screen. These tiny holes prevent the sparks and embers from leaving and also let air pass, allowing the fire to burn more.
