Wood Racks Keep Your Logs Arranged and Dry
Firewood racks serve dual purposes:
- As a firewood holder, they keep your seasoned logs dry and clean. Wet, dirty firewood does not burn efficiently, is prone to rot, and attracts pests and bugs. And if you burn moldy firewood, it can create a health hazard in your home. When you store it on a firewood rack, it stays off the ground and under a cover or a roof. Keeping it on a rack makes your firewood burn hotter and less smoky, which leads to a cleaner chimney.
- As a firewood storage unit, a wood rack also lets you keep your wood neat, organized, and easily accessible. When firewood is properly stacked on a wood rack, it allows continued air circulation and seasoning of your wood. Therefore, if you have a fire pit, wood stove, or use your fireplace, you need to invest in a firewood rack.
Frequently Asked Firewood Rack Questions:
How big should a firewood rack be?
The size of your firewood rack depends on your usage and needs. As a general rule of thumb, a firewood rack that is 48 inches (4 feet) by 45 inches will hold ¼ cord of wood. A firewood rack that is 87 inches by 96 inches will hold ½ cord and a 16ft rack will hold 1 cord of wood. At ShelterLogic, we offer 4-foot, 8-foot, 12-foot, and 16-foot firewood holders.
How much firewood does an 8-foot rack hold?
An 8-foot firewood rack can hold ¼ cord of wood. A cord of wood represents 128 cubic feet of wood. Therefore, ¼ cord would be 32 cubic feet of wood.
Is it OK for firewood to get rained on?
Firewood should be stored in a dry place out of the rain in order to properly season the wood. This process helps to prolong the firewood’s viability. Too much exposure to moisture such as rain, will cause the firewood to go bad and rot. It is good practice to keep your firewood properly covered and kept dry.
