Vestal offers you a choice of “good-better-best” in steel grates. Vestal prefers square bar to ‘off square’ diamond, ‘flattened’ diamond or fluted bars. We feel that grate strength (and life) is directly proportional to the amount of steel along the bar’s diagonal. Also, by welding on the diagonal, better heat dissipation is obtained during actual burning. Your wood burning grate ensures easier fire starts and adequate ventilation.
