Historically, free standing fireplace screens had the primary purpose to prevent sparks from getting onto a carpet or wood floor. With the majority of wood burning fireplaces being converted to gas, a free-standing fireplace screen with a door provides a safety barrier for pets or young children. There are a wide range of styles and custom design options which creates the finishing touch to a fireplace opening without installing a glass door.

Typically, the screens are built to be "flat" (laying directly against the facing material) or "tri-fold" (set away from the opening onto the hearth). A tri-fold screen can adapt to a wider range of fireplace widths than a flat screen. A relatively smooth hearth surface is needed for the screen to be stable. Screens are generally built sized from 30" to 35" high by 39" to 45" wide. Custom size fireplace screens are available by special order.
