Sizing of Fire Grates.
Fire grates are listed in the size of the fire place they are suitable for and this is the opening at the front of the fireplace, measured in inches. The grates are around 1 to 1.5 inches smaller, ie a 14″ fire grate is only 13″ wide .
These are British made fire grates and are more commonly known as fire stools.
Although fire grates are regarded as a “consumable” requiring occasionale replacement, casting in British foundries ensures they are able to withstand higher temperatures and therefore last longer than imported or “unkown origin” castings. Consideration should be given to purchase a pair rather than just one, thereby leaving one as a spare for when the original destorts and burns away in the repeated fierce heat of the fire.
Note… Slots in the ash pan to allow combustion air and for ash to fall through are 11mm wide. Fire grates should be left bare metal and are not suitable for painting even with heat resistant paint. They are mainly used internally but can be used as baskets for outdoor fires.

Cast Iron Air Bricks
- Air Brick Product Guide
- Fitting An Iron Air Brick
- Mortar Repair
- Period Brickwork Repair
Cast iron air bricks are used either externally or internally, built into walls (either brick or stone) to fit flush with the wall surface and secured in place with mortar or plaster.
9" x 3" (225 x 75mm) air bricks are a very popular size as it is the standard size of an old fashioned British house brick. If air flow is important, again the max flow, as the name suggests is a clear winner.
The 9x6 air bricks are twice the size of a standard house brick, therefore allowing a greater free air flow. The 9x9 and 12x9 air bricks are also available to supply larger air flows.
