Firepit Tools: These tools are mainly used to tend the fires. You can buy a set or can just order fire poker and a pair of tongs, used for tending the fire and to move the logs, if they have been used to light the fire. Outdoor Firepit Screens: These screens are wire mesh devices attached to the outer edge of the outdoor firepit. The mesh is used to prevent fire and ashes from spilling out of the pit. There are various designs that you can get with the meshes. These meshes can be used in different ways when the pit is turned into an oven. You can feel the heat while keeping safe.
Regardless of the climate, people seem to love to gather around an outdoor fire. Its something that just seems to in our makeup as humans. Whether it is a summer bonfire or a nice warm campfire on a chilly fall or winter night, we love the warmth and smell and ambiance of an outdoor fire. Given that we live in a modern society, its not always safe or practice to build an old-fashioned campfire in your backyard or patio. That is where the relatively new invention of the firepit comes to the rescue. You have probably seen a fire pit or two, whether in a neighbors backyard or at you local superstore. Like many things in life, the price and quality of outdoor firepits varies greatly. You can easily find one for under one hundred dollars, but then again, you can also spend several thousand for a really high-end model.
Gas Firepit Safety 1. You can help prevent accidental fires by keeping the area around your firepit free from combustible materials. This can include cleaning materials like mops, brooms, newspapers but more importantly, gasoline and cleaning fluids. 2. Inspect and clean burners regularly. Insects such as spiders can actually nest in the burners and block air flow. If this happens a fire can start behind the valve panel. 3. Be sure to keep electric cords and power supplies away from the fire pit. 4. Dont use your gas fire pit in a windy area. If you need to do so create a windbreak. 5. Never line a gas firepit with tin foil. 6. Dont use your firepit as a storage area for flammable materials or plastic items which can ignite. 7. Never leave children unattended around fire pit when in use.
Seat distance from the firepit is critical. Too close and the fire will be too hot; too far away and the heat wont reach you. You can vary the distance with each seat but we found that for a pit 800mm in diameter the seats should be about 1m away from the pit. This allows people to walk in front of each other around the fire. Once the rock seats are in place the next job was to pour concrete around the pit and around the bottom of the seats so that the outside line of concrete joins all the stones about halfway. The back of the rocks protrudes out into what will become turf.
