Fire guards have been used in and around fires and fireplaces for many years. The fine mesh on the screen helps prevent escaping sparks from crackling wood, or a log falling from an open firebasket. The mesh also allows light out meaning the warmth and feel or a fire is still felt by all in the room. We have a wide selection of fireguards available from flat single panel fireguards, to shaped and folding fire guards. We also have a range of glass firescreens offering a more contemporary take on fire protection.
Folding fire screens are essentially several single panels hinged together to wrap around a stove, fire or fireplace. Folding fire screens often have a larger main single panel section at the front with smaller "wing" sections on either side. Available as three fold, four fold or five fold, our folding firescreens come with a fine mesh that offers protection when used on a hearth around an open fire or fireplace and different colour trims are available to match your rooms décor.
Shaped fire screens come as one piece that has been designed to fit a specifically shaped opening. Available in different shapes and sizes, shaped fire guards are ideally suited for use with a stove, fire or fireplace that has been placed into a chimney breast so that the firescreen can sit across the front of the opening. Available with different colour trims to match your rooms décor. You can use single panel, shaped and folding firescreens with outdoor fires, but should not be left outside all year round as they will rust.
Child guards are typically larger firescreens, specifically designed to sit around freestanding stoves and protect children and pets from getting too close to the stove, helping you to get the most out of your stove, fire or cooker, and make the overall experience safer and more efficient.
Glass firescreens are the natural evolution of mesh firescreens. These screens utilize thick ceramic glass similar to that which is used in wood burning stoves and glass floor plates, these contemporary screens offer an unspoilt view of the fire and flames whilst still offering a practical solution for protection. Glass firescreens should not be used with open fires, must be kept a minimum of 300mm (12") from the heat source and should not be placed in an environment where temperatures will exceed 200°C.
