Originally created to reduce the discomfort of excessive heat from a log fire, early fire screens were generally shaped as flat panels standing on attached feet, or as adjustable shield-shaped panels mounted on tripod table legs. By placing a screen in front of the fire and opening and closing the sliding panels, you can regulate the amount of heat let out, controlling it to some degree based on the preference of the people in the room. Also a good way to block the chimney, less air conditioning and heat can escape, which means less wasted energy and money for you.
