        Grate Fires was founded by Gary R. Craven in Athens, Georgia in 1993. We first began importing the English Gas Coal Fires but soon realized the need for CSA Certified gas coal fires for the US and Canadian markets. Searching for antique grates and surrounds to be produced exclusively for Grate Fires, we began to put together a product line of decorative grates and accessories. The company is currently operated out of Historic Washington, Georgia.


        The fireplace has long been regarded as the focal point for any home, and in the late 1800's, coal fires were the height of fashion. Even today, these units add an unmatched elegance to virtually any space.

        These timeless gas coal fireplaces are often found in the finest homes, castles, palaces, and  centuries-old public houses among Great Britain, the US, and Canada. 

They are easy to install and can be uninstalled and taken with you, should you decide to move.
