A fire screen is your best protection against hot embers coming out of the fireplace and damaging whatever surface the embers land on. These embers can also catch a rug or carpeting on fire.
It is important that a fire screen move freely and close completely.
Fire screens are constantly exposed to the heat and moisture from a fire. They will warp and deteriorate and periodically need to be replaced.
The Benefits of Replacing Fire Screens Are:
- Replacing with a new fire screen brings a more attractive display
- When closed, fire screens protect against hot embers coming out onto combustibles
- New fire screens slide easier to open and close
