This was a great find on home depot Canada's website. Wife and I were looking for something to keep our 18-month old away from the fireplace. She gets into everything now so this was a perfect find!
The packaging it comes in is HUGE! lol. But it's worth it. The screen guard has a great modern look to it and looks fantastic up against our fireplace.
It does have 2 handles to carry/push/pull the guard with. It doesn't sit flush against the fireplace for us, but this will be different for everyone most likely. Although it's not flush it gives great coverage for most of the fireplace and still allows you to be able to see the fireplace without taking away from the look.
I needed something to prevent my new puppy from squeezing through the "curtained" screens and getting into the fireplace. I bought this because it was not too expensive would do the trick. It actually improves the appearance of the fireplace, which is a plus!
I bought this with one thing in mind, to guard against the grand kids getting burned on the gas fireplace. It does that very well. We have peace of mind to allow the kids to be somewhat unsupervised in the living room. The top precipice is awesome in stopping curious hands getting too close. The screen is heavy enough and very stable free standing.
This fireplace screen is exactly what we were looking for. Perfect size for your average household fireplace. Lightweight and easy to move with the handles which do not get too hot. We have burned several fires since buying it and this screen definitely meets our expectations.
The screen did not sit even on the hearth, the top left side was up an inch or so, not a real big deal since it is used on an outside fireplace.
