Fireplace Spark Guards

Fireplace Spark Guards - A Simple Solution To Protect Your Home

Fireplace safety should be a priority for every homeowner and no where is this more important than in protecting your area from sparks and burning embers with a fireplace spark guard. This article will explain what they are and what they can do to make your fireplace safe.

It's no secret that a majority of house fires are started from sparks coming out of a fireplace. At best they can burn holes in your carpets, rugs, furniture, or anything else nearby. At worst you could be looking at a complete disaster.

A fireplace spark guard wraps around the fireplace opening and prevents dangerous sparks from flying out.

You may be thinking that a spark guard is the same as a fireplace screen, but it isn't.

A fireplace spark guard is a moveable screen that is made from steel roads around the top and sides with a black mesh screen connected to it.

The guard will overlap the fireplace opening to prevent any sparks from coming out the sides. It will also include handles on both sides to help in moving it around.

Because the spark guard can be folded out completely flat instead of the normal curved screens you so often see, there are no embers flying out through the top of the screen.

The difference with guards and fireplace screens is that a fireplace screen is permanently attached to the fireplace. It hangs from a mounted track and slides open and shut.

You can find fireplace arrestors or guards in all types of sizes and styles that will accent any room decor as well as your fireplace.

You can choose ones made from steel, brass, aluminum, gold plated, etc. They can be found online through several different sites that offer up a wide variety of fireplace accessories.

Keep your family and your home safe around the fireplace by utilizing a good fireplace spark guard.
