Outdoor Fire Pit Grates
All fire pits need some sort of firewood holder or a firewood grate. Most out door fire pits are elevated above the patio and the common height is 24". The problem here is where are you going to build the fire? In the fire pit of course but where in the fire pit? On the bottom? Then how are you going to see the fire? How are you going to clean the fire pit? How is the fire going to bun if there is no air circulation?
We manufacture an adjustable grate build just for outdoor fire pits. They come in 2 different diameters 18" and 24". The different heights they come in are from 6" to 24". The grates are made so that you can use it as a firewood grate and/or you can add a 22 1/2", out of the box Weber grill that you can purchase from home depot for 10 bucks. So if you ever want to use your fire pit to grill on you can without adding anything but just the grill. See the additional pictures above for a better idea of what I am talking about.
We suggest that you use a grate that's as tall as the firepit will allow. What this does is if you have a fire pit that is 24" and you use a 24" grate and you adjust the grate itself down about 6" from the top surface then the extra height of the legs will be used to keep the firewood from rolling off the side.
We made the grates so that they are adjustable in height. I might like my fire higher then you may like yours. So you can adjust the grate's heights according to your liking.
The grates are made of solid steel. The legs are solid 1" steel legs, the grate is made of 1/4 x 1" solid steel rolled into a circle and we weld 1/2 solid steel to this ring to make the cross pieces on the grate. No tools required for assembley. It all slides together. These are very heavy duty. They weight from 60 to 100 pounds.
Please note that the picture shows the grate with 5 cross bars, 3 placed in one direction and 2 bars going the other direction. We have made changes in this design. We now make the grates with five cross bars all parallel to each other with a smaller gap between the bars. This will hold the burning logs longer. So if you receive a grate that looks different then the one pictured here don't be alarmed. This is an upgraded engineered design.
