Our Firepit Types
There are many firepit styles, shapes and sizes. A very popular recent trend is for gas firepits to be integrated onto outdoor tables, creating a conversation area and elevating the fire. The first decision to make however is what fuel to use. Here are the choices.
Propane Firepits: Propane firepits can either use a standard portable propane tank, or be hard plumbed to your home’s propane service tank. Many propane firepits include a table which is designed to actually hide the propane tank under it. Most designs have battery powered electronic ignition and adjustable flame height. They can also operate several hours on one tank of fuel. Additionally, they come with covers to keep water and debris our when they are not in use.
Natural Gas Firepits: Most all gas firepits can be configured to burn natural gas. The advantage of using natural gas is that it eliminates the need to refill and handle portable propane tanks. Most designs have battery powered electronic ignition and adjustable flame height. Additionally, they come with covers to keep water and debris our when they are not in use.
Wood Burning Firepits: Wood burning firepits are the traditional way to sit around a fire and enjoy outdoor living. They obviously require constant maintenance to ensure fire safety. They provide the added advantage of being able to roast marshmallows and hot dogs on the coals. We sell both small wood burning firepits and the world’s largest pre-fabricated wood burning firepits. Many small wood burning firepits can be used on wood or Trex® decks if proper fire protection is provided. The large models can only be located directly on the dirt, pavers, concrete, directly on the ground. They cannot be located on decks of any type.
Hybrid Firepits: Wood burning firepits can also be configured to burn propane, or natural gas instead of wood. This requires the installation of some specialized plumbing components and a burner ring.
