Portable fire pit for propane or natural gas. These will be available in unfinished (as shown) just add your stone, plaster, marble, granite, brushed stainless steel or? The fire pit shown is a natural gas with multi mix glass (about 30 to 40 colors from our mixing counter. The size is a 30" x 30" x 12" tall. The fire pit shown is a www.FireScapes.net
fire pit and they offer 3 different models as well. The custom fire pits we will be manufacturing have a single wall construction frame with a drop in solid bottom fire pan/ tray. We will be offering both versions.
The fire pit below is a custom propane fire pit. We use perforated aluminum for the wall construction and the pit is single wall construction with a 1 1/2" deep pan on top. We installed a 12" double stainless steel ring for the burner. The rest was done by Bill Moss in Texas. Very nice job Bill!. We built the pit to Bills specs which were 26" x 26" x 20" tall so he could finish it to the size he wanted. The pit shown is one of our proto types and not the actual pit used.
Above is how it started
And below is what the customer made it!
Above and below is the quick disconnect for the propane gas
We use Black base glass in the fire pit. It looks light because of the flash from the camera.
The next fire pit was designed by and built for Kevin Leys of Chicago. He did a great job and you decide.
First he started with a single wall construction fire box with a pan on the top
Then it was framed for exterior plywood or you could use metal studs and wonder board.
The gas valve was located to the outer framed wall
This is a natural gas fire pit. It was tested as soon as it turned dark, fun!
Now we add the crushed lave rock and glass over that. There are many sub materials you can use as a filler. Just ask.
Great back yard by the way! Chicago, remember?
Now we start to apply the tile for the finishing touch.
The stainless steel pan burner below has a 24" stainless steel star burner installed and it is connected to our 110 volt electronic ignition. This is a propane burner.
We then covered it with our Starfire to test for soot and as you can see, a clean burn.
Our products do not require any certification from the AGA, CSA or UL as it is considered a stand-alone product by these agencies. We are told that we would need a certification if sand and or lava rock would need certification. The agencies are franchise operations and they are privately owned and they are not a government agency. These agencies are hired for mass production testing and AGA, CSA and or UL do not certify custom one of a kind projects. Custom burners need no certification as this only applies to production equipment. Just so you can understand that a certification costs about $15,000.00 and certification was developed for production/ mass production to assure quality. Any parts that would normally need AGA or UL do in fact have these approvals. Parts with function need and should have some sort of approval. The pan burners we sell that do have UL, CSA and or any other listings are produced by other companies. The custom pan burners that we produce are just that, custom. Therefore do not require UL, CSA and or any other agency listings as these are custom. The parts that we use to build these pans are UL, CSA listed as they should be. We would never use any “Third World Country” or any unlisted, untested parts to build any products and or parts to endanger any product performance what so ever.
The fire pit below is in San Francisco California. They use one of out FPPK units.
Here you can see the simple construction.
A local artist made the glass inlay top. Very cool!
We supplied the FPPK and the Clear glass
The fire pit below was built by Scott Spector in Florida. He started with an FPPK 30 which includes a 30" base plate and a double 24" stainless steel ring. Here we go from the beginning:
The propane line was run/ installed under the pavers.
The colors that were used are
1/2" Clear base,
Black Magic in the center,
Cobalt Blue Topper,
Cobalt Blue Light Topper
and our FPPK 30". That is our 30" propane burner. You can see the actual burner above burning before shipment and installation.
We don't have any pictures of the fire pit burning at Scott's but he did tel us that when he fired it up again he would try to send us a few pictures. Thanks Scott.
The fire table below was built by Christina "Stina" in the San Francisco area. With a little ambition, imagination and our help, she now has one very nice fire table.
Here is where it started. She made a template of the pan and where the mounting tabs would be located. Then we built the aluminum pan and propane burner for Stina to install.
Below is how the teak table started. We just brought it into the future.
Below the pan was installed with Galaxy Green base glass.
Below you can see the top installed and what a difference.
Below is her wonderfully finished project, Great job Stina!
The burner below is one of our FPPK's (fire pit propane kit). With this FPPK we set it up for Black Magic! This was table tested for the pictures. Hopefully the customer will send us pictures after and during installation. We first sent these pictures for the customers approval. Here you go! The pan below belongs to Scott Spector and he finally installed the fire pit in his back yard, WOW, one really nice backyard!
This is one of our propane pan burner with slight modifications.
As you can see around the lower edges it was leaking and yes we did fix this.
Here is the answer some of you think you know. (You don't!) These are Air Mixers, Venturis Carburetors.
These like a carburetor on any engine act as the air fuel mixture governor. Have you ever been behind an older car that smells funny? Wrong air mixture! Bad mechanic! The air mixers have to be calibrated not only to the valving but the burner as well. We have been building propane burners for several years now and we have never had an issue with any configuration that we have built, ever. It's the same as porting an engine for proper air flow. If you just STICK one of these on your burner then you may be giving us a call soon enough.
Here are a few pictures of the 1/2" and 3/4" air mixers, (40,000 to 400,000 btu mixers).
If you attach it and create back pressure, you will have a fire or an explosion, guaranteed. We are not trying to frighten you but to make you aware. We believe in safety first and we don't build systems without thermo couples and or pilot light systems, ever!
As you may have of seen on our "How Not To Do It Page" they still screw up no matter how hard they try. We are here only to help!
