The finish of the tools is the largest variable in today's choices. Brass, pewter and copper are common finishes for tool sets. A great example of a brass finish set is the Uniflame five piece polished brass fireset (f-2191) this set is a wonderful representation of combining functionality and beauty. Another example of form and function is the Uniflame five piece satin, pewter fireplace tool set (5UF-7547).
A fireplace glass door is installed on a fireplace to keep the room warm longer when the flames die down. Whether a wood burning fireplace or a gas burning fireplace, heat radiated into the room escapes through the chimney. One does not notice this while the fire is burning brightly, because of the heat from the flames that radiates into the room. However, when the fire starts to die down, the hearth becomes cold quickly as the heat escapes through the fireplace opening. To stop this from happening, a fireplace glass doors blocks the opening, keeping the warm air from leaving the room.
