woodhaven_rackWhether you are storing firewood for a woodstove, fireplace or outdoor fire pit – it is important to find a firewood rack that fits your need. Each home décor is different and a sturdy firewood rack can be a key accessory to any yard.
You may use a large amount of wood each year, and seasoning it properly can be a challenge without a high quality firewood rack. The Woodhaven firewood rack is made of the best quality 16 gauge steel and has a corrosion resistant powder coat finish. The Woodhaven is constructed in the United States and is complete with stainless steel hardware. They are offered in a variety of sizes ranging from 2 feet long (holds 1/8 cord) to 16 feet long (holds 1 full cord). Firewood is purchased by the unit of measure called a “cord” – a full cord of wood is 8 feet wide by 4 feet high by 4 feet deep. If you purchase a Woodhaven firewood rack you have the option of choosing a standard or full cover. The standard cover will only protect to top few rows of the wood pile from various weather conditions. It is a sliding cover which means that it will move down as the pile depletes to ensure the top row is always dry and ready for burning. Obviously, the full cover will shield the entire rack from the elements. The full cover is designed to be used in more extreme weather conditions.
HY-C Company offers a bit more affordable firewood rack for the average homeowner. The HY-C firewood racks are made of 18 gauge tubular steel and they also feature a black powder coat finish.

Then take a look at HY-C’s adjustable log rack kit! It is made of the same 18 gauge tubular steel as the standard racks, but you can customize the length of the unit.
