Fire Spares Direct provide a substantial range of traditional and contemporary Fire Baskets (also known as Dog Grates). These Baskets are manufactured in robust cast-iron, in the time honoured tradition, in our foundry which also manufactures stoves and cast-iron fireplaces. Fire Baskets (except the Ennerdale) are supplied flat pack and include a bottom grate (suitable for use with solid fuel) and an ashpan cover. The ashpan tray is an optional extra.
Our Fire Baskets are available in a matt black finish (use Stove Paint to touch up) but some models can also be highlight polished providing a rather contemporary look. Most baskets also have an option to include a separate decorative back plate.
Whilst our baskets can be used for a real fire in the right situation, they can also be adapted to an electric or gas coal effect or used with bio-ethanol fuel. They also look attractive sitting on a hearth or in an inglenook as a feature decorated with logs, coals or pine cones.
