How to Measure BBQ Grill Grates
Measuring Your Existing Grates For A Replacement
Measurements are width (side to side) and depth (front to back) it is important to make sure the bars of the grates are in the proper direction. (see the picture below)
Measure from the widest points in both the width and depth and record the measurements, be sure the measurements are as close as possible to the original grates to ensure fitment.
Measuring for custom grates.
Decide how many grates are needed to cover the grill surface. ( 1 single section or multiple sections)
When measuring for a custom grate keep in mind that if the fit is too tight it can become stuck or lift above the edges of the grill once the grates get hot, this is caused from the material expanding and contracting with the temperature changes, it is recommended to leave at least 1/8" of free space between the grates and the edges of the grill.
What size grates can we make?
We can make any width from 1" to 24" and 1" to 26" deep. We do not make any larger than this simply for shipping purposes.
What else to think about before ordering?
PROgrates are made from 3/8" stainless steel, they are heavy! A single grate over a full grill can be a pain to remove, especially if hot, multiple smaller sections are easier to handle and are recommended.
Please examine your grill or grates for any type of special brackets or fitted inserts that would keep PROgrates from properly fitting your grill.
We do not accept returns on custom made grates. Please double check your measurements.
