About Ash Carrier
Anyone who burns wood or coal in a fireplace, stove, open fire or wood burner will need a convenient method for disposing of ash. The ash is the residue powder that remains after wood is burned and can retain its heat after the fire has died. The transferral of hot ashes can be a significant risk to individuals and properties, so it is important to dispose of ash using the correct equipment. In particular, an ash carrier is one of the most useful tools for this purpose, as it is a lidded box that can carry hot or cold ashes for disposal.
Ash carriers are usually heavy duty boxes that are often produced from galvanised steel. They are capable of holding both hot and cold ashes and can be used to cool the ashes before disposal. The box includes a swivel handle, a wide mouth and a hinged lid to allow safe and secure disposal of the ash from a fireplace. Ash carriers are rust resistant and designed to be strong and durable. The hinged lid is useful for sealing the dust to avoid spillages or dust clouds in the air during transportation.
How to use
An ash carrier requires the use of an ash pan or shovel to safely remove the ashes from the fireplace. The ash carrier should be laid down at right angles so that the ash pan can be easily inserted. When the ash has been inserted, the lid should be closed, the box should be lifted into a vertical position. Finally, the ashes should be left to cool before disposal.
