First you need to decided what type of heating appliance you have, where it is, and what you use it for mostly. Taking the precaution of using wood in your fire pit, table, place always leaves parents worried since it is highly flammable and the fact that children can be present. Fire glass solves that problem. It is made to burn at a high temperatures and can with stand wind too. It is never advisable to use fire areas when high winds are present but if a gust came up these types of glass are made to stay put!
Coal, Wood, and other flammable materials are what most fire appliances are made to burn. However, environmentalists are concerned that burning these could produce greenhouse gases, so a shift has been made to natural gas, propane, and electricity. When you’re burning via any of these media, your fire pit does not need to be as deep as it would be if you were burning wood, coal, or charcoal. If you like the look of wood logs, you can always use artificial wood in your fire pit to achieve the look.
I love the fact that fire glass is fully customizable to your liking. Fire glass looks nice, is durable, and is environmentally friendly. It’s also quite affordable compared to other types of materials you can use in a fire pit. It’s available for all kinds of aesthetics, and lasts a long time. It doesn’t create ash, soot, or any other noxious or unwanted byproduct. To get the best look, use colored glass and create a little mound over the top of the fire pit. This will allow you to see the color of the glass.
Lots of beautiful resorts, spas, fine dining and event areas are turning to this type of burning material for the elegance of its glow. Any fire pit or fireplace with a grate can use fire glass. The fire glass creates an interesting look and can be very beautiful if used properly. The only part of the pit that will be seen is the top, so the remainder of the pit can easily be filled with cheaper, colorless fire glass, with a thin layer of the more expensive colored glass on top. To estimate how much glass you’ll need, find the volume by multiplying the length, width and depth of the pit. Then, divide this number by 66. This will give you the weight you need in pounds. If you require kilograms, divide the volume of the pit by 30 to approximate the weight you need.
