What is the Eco-Friendly Radiant Fire Grate?

Fire GrateThe fire grate is designed in 2 sizes, "large" for deep fireplaces (17 inches in depth, supporting 9 and 6 inch diameter logs) weighing 20 lbs and "small" for shallower fireplaces (12 inches in depth, supporting 6 and 4 inch diameter logs) weighing 14 lbs. Each system gives maximum heat output and extends burn time. The logs' size and intense heat, along with minimum under-fire air and enhanced secondary combustion, effectively transforms the stacked cordwood into "afterburners" that ignite and harness the energy from volatile gases, like those found in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Phase II approved wood stoves and fireplace inserts.

How can an Eco-Friendly Radiant Fire Grate reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

Typical split-log fires are the cause of much polution: the way in which they burn introduces harmful pollutants into the environment. However, there is an Earth-safe solution to all this. Burning un-split wood dramatically reduces grenhouse gases (GHG), dioxins and furans, while reducing creosote and ash buildup in your chimney. When you burn wood, instead of a non-renewable fuel source such as oil or gas, you are directly reducing your GHGs.

What is a carbon tax and how can a Radiant Fire Grate reduce it?

A carbon tax is attached to the amount of Carbon Dioxide a product or service creates. For example, if you use oil or gas to heat your home, you would be taxed the amount of carbon created through the use of this type of primary fuel. With a Radiant Fire Grate, the heat created is carbon dioxide neutral.

What is bio-mass?

The most common form of biomass is wood. For thousands of years people have burned wood for heating and cooking. Wood was the main source of energy in the U.S. and the rest of the world until the mid-1800s. Biomass continues to be a major source of energy in much of the developing world. Waste wood can be found along beaches, from fallen trees, and from old furniture. When you use waste wood in your Radiant Fire Grate, you are not only saving the carbon that would normally be released through oil and gas furnaces, but you are recycling our precious natural resources.

How can this grate save time and money?

Fire Grate – Fireplace AccessoryThis fire grate puts your fireplace and fuel to work, reducing heat loss up the chimney. A deceptively simple design boosts radiant heat transfer at floor level by up to 300%, literally cutting fuel use in half and thus saving you money. Also, by using unsplit logs, it reduces the time spent in the labor-intensive chore of splitting, hauling and loading firewood. The result is "hands-off" performance, allowing for burn times of up to six hours. This way, you and your family can wake up to warmth each morning

How do they work?

Fire GrateDue to the stacking pattern of the grate, the scientifically patented design directs the fire's heat into your home rather than up your chimney. Measuring 13" high and 17" deep (or 9" high by 12" deep for the small grate), the two base log rests are independently freestanding, and can be adjusted to accommodate almost any length of log.

Why are they eco-friendly?

Typical split-log fires are the cause of much pollution: the way in which they burn introduces harmful pollutants into the environment. But, as more and more people are discovering, there is an Earth-safe solution to all this. Burning unsplit wood dramatically reduces greenhouse gas emissions, dioxins and furans, while reducing creosote and ash buildup in your chimney.

What size logs do I use?
